Today is my 100th Post!  In honor of this, I am finally posting a 100 Things about Me. 



1.    Christine is my first name, but I mostly go by Chrissie or Chris - in the blog world I'm Chris-sea

2.    Marie is my 2nd name

3.    My Mom's name is Kathleen

4.    My mother's middle name is also Marie, or so we thought.  She recently discovered that her birth documents lists her middle name as Maria.

6.    My father's name is/was Robert & his middle name is/was Frances

7.    I'm not sure if he is alive

8.    I am almost positive that he choosing to live as a homeless person in Hawaii

These are great, Chris!  Now you should put them on your sidebar.  I did mine in 4 insallments, 25 at a time.   By the way, the doctor told me he didn't think you'd make it rather than 20%!  I didn't know they even did surgery.  

 It took me 3 tries to get the comment page.  I don't like that I can't minimize the message box so I can read the post again because I always forget what I wanted to comment on!!
