I always finish what I've started, it makes me crazy to have unfinished projects.
I am a planner. If I know there is an event (holiday, vacation, party) coming up I like to know WELL in advance as many details as possible. Chaos is not my friend.
I am a worrier, if there is nothing to worry about, I'll find something.

I like the smell of paint.
I like things to be alphabetized, which is good because (since I am a tech-dummy) I couldn't figure out how to make this list chronological by numbers, which is second best.
I like things to be orderly. I am the most anal of my parents children.
I like to explain things, as you can see with all of the things on this list.
