Blue tagged me.
Anyway, here we go:
I AM BLESSED: with a loving husband, two beautiful, healthy children, some AMAZING friends (you KNOW who you are), everything I need in life and pretty much everything I want, too.
I WANT: my house – finished, put together, and moved into BEFORE Christmas, dammit!
I WISH: I had more time (or better organizational skills to free up more time).
I MISS: my kitchen. Oh, and John Candy and Gregory Hines. And sleeping in. And going to the movies without it being a major demonstration of my logistical prowess.
I FEAR: flying – not enough to keep me off the plane, but enough to make it unpleasant. And earwigs – those things are just creepy.
I HEAR: my husband and children upstairs playing Marble Blast – their new favorite game.
I WONDER: if I’ll get the job.
I REGRET: nothing. It is all (and was all) as it should be.
I AM NOT: a nature girl. Camping and general roughing it are NOT my thing.
I DANCE: in the living room with my husband, usually to either his singing or the Talking Heads. Sometimes I’ll bop a little in the car, too, but not enough to distract me into being an idiot (see above).
I SING: in the car – never in the shower – and usually to the likes of the Indigo Girls, Jonatha Brooke, and Sarah McLachlan.
I CRY: about nothing when I’m pre-menopausal. Seriously – commercials, song lyrics, greeting cards – it’s pathetic.
I AM NOT ALWAYS: patient. As a matter of fact, sometimes patience is a great effort for me.
I MAKE WITH MY HANDS: some of the most amazing food you’ve ever experienced.
I WRITE: blogs, letters, essays, journal entries, love notes in lunch boxes and the occasional poem.
I CONFUSE: stress with hunger. Let me tell you about how many M&Ms and Jelly Bellies went into the completion of my degree…
I NEED: my friends and family. Reading material. Chocolate.
I SHOULD: work on being more self-sufficient, particularly where practical matters are concerned (changing tires, that sort of thing). I should also work out more, but I’m working on that.
I START: to head “down” for the night at a ridiculously early hour – I’m usually useless by ten thirty at the latest; long, complex conversations with people whose opinions matter to me; Hunt for Red October and Matrix quote wars with my brother-in-law.
I FINISH: an entire family’s worth of laundry in one Saturday; GRAD SCHOOL!;
