WHO am I?

I AM blessed 

I AM NOT superwoman (don't tell my kids)

I KNOW that I am redeemed and will live FOREVER in heaven

I THINK I need a Starbucks giftcard

I DON'T THINK bathing suits should cost so much

I WANT new furniture

I HAVE been to 8 countries and 31 states (so much to see, so little time)

I LIKE little old men; Sonic cranberry limeade; purses; porches. (What a weird combination!)

I DISLIKE heat and humidity; whining; complaining; 

I HATE booming bass radios from punk drivers

I DREAM of living on a ranch in the mountains (with a Target nearby)

I FEAR alzheimer's disease
I'M ANNOYED by sullen choir music; loud people; my alarm at 5:20am

I CRAVE gelatinous desserts; chocolate; peace and quiet

I USUALLY keep my house clean and neat

I SEARCH for a new hairstyle on a yearly basis; library books on a weekly basis; my cell phone on a daily basis

I HIDE my good pens from my daughters; dark chocolate M&Ms (in an undisclosed location)

I WONDER what we are having for dinner (every single night, I wonder)

I REGRET that I ate a donut a few minutes ago; that I ate a Swiss cake roll before that

I LOVE my amazing husband;  my family; my Lord; my life

I CAN play sports with my right hand, even though I am left handed

I CAN'T do blood or teeth

I TRY to stay organized

I ENJOY traveling; trying new restaurants; watching my kids enjoy each other

I DON'T CARE for jewelry on men; seeing myself in a bathing suit; pork

I ALWAYS tell my children that I missed them while they were at school; tell my husband that I love him; wash my hands with antibacterial soap in the car

I NEVER want to go to a jungle/ rainforest

I'D RATHER go somewhere cold, like Germany, Scotland, Ireland, Alaska

I RELY on my husband to fix anything around the house 

I BELIEVE in God the father, maker of heaven and earth; Jesus Chirst, his only son, sent to die for my sins; that Jesus rose on the third day; that I am forgiven; that I have an eternal hope and assurance; that I am free.

I DANCE in the kitchen a lot... the kids think I'm crazy fun

I SING in the car at the top of my lungs when I'm alone
I ARGUE rarely.  Can't stand to argue... I'd rather walk away.

I WRITE things down if I want to remember them (especially the calendar)

I WIN in Wii bowling

I LOSE weight rarely

I WISH I could eat sweets and still lose weight easily

I LISTEN to a wide variety of very cool music

I DON'T UNDERSTAND economics, chemistry, bailouts 

I'M SCARED of bears, snakes, bugs

I FORGET birthdays.  I'm the worst at remembering dates!

I AM HAPPY when my family is together and happy

Now the question is:
Consider yourself tagged!

I like this! I will definitely steal it.

And really? You sing outloud in the car? I *never* do that. Oh no, not me.

Amy said...

Fun tidbits! I am very impressed with your self-portraiture skills, too!

Mom said...

I loved this! And I loved even more that there were no surprises to me..which means that I know you well enough to know these things (not sure I knew you are as bad as me about remembering birthdays...) I love you, my sweet girl!

Gretchen said...

Howdy Do! Over from CPQ's blog. With a name like Gretchen. You must be good people.

And I lurved your list so much that I must steal.


Carpoolqueen said...

And I'm back to ask why you're holding a pig pickin' at your house if you don't like pork?

And what will you eat?

These are the things that keep me up at night.

Stephanie said...
