Meme: Seven Things

I saw this on another journal and copied it to use. Now, if I could just remember who to credit for the idea. . . .

(note: These Seven Things are not in order of importance; that would have taken too much thought! I just put them in the order I thought of them.)

Seven things that scare me:
1. crowded places
2. Free-Range Rodents
3. traffic
4. the stairs to my basement
5. misuse of power
6. Bad Dreams where Something Bad happens to my husband
7. Stupid People

Seven things I like the most:
1. my husband
2. my parents
3. my pets
