i

I Am....secretly insecure. I know that I come off as really sure of myself but it is very hard for me to strike up a conversation with a complete stranger.
***
I WANT...financial security - finally. I do not want to worry about how we are going to do this and how we are going to pay for that. I want to use money to do good for others, when I hear of a need I can fill it with something other than service.
***
I HAVE...a full heart. I know that I am loved and that there are many that depend on me, that rely on me and that like me.
***
I WISH...that my hair was not freaky, but it is also humbling and helps me not take myself too seriously.
***
I COULD...be purging the basement of all those toys and things that end up in that endless abyss but I am blogging and I am happy.
***
I HATE....politics. It brings out the ugly in people and as Caro said it is the lesser of two evils on who to vote for.
***
I FEAR...so many things. That I will not raise my kids to be good people, that I will not do all that I can to make the world a better place, that I will let someone down.
***
I HEAR...that according to Redbook: 820 of 1,000 women recently surveyed said that uncomfortable underwear can ruin a good day.
***
I SEARCH....for clarity.
***
I DON'T THINK....I will ever get it but the journey is half the fun.
***
I REGRET...that I did not finish my Nursing Degree when I had a full-ride scholarship, but I was young and dumb and now I get to pay for that regret.
***
I LOVE....watching my children sleep. I get to love them and hug them and see that they are safe tucked in bed.
***
I ACHE FOR...my man. I see how hard he works and how he puts on a brave face while taking such good care of us, never wanting to worry me with his stress.
***
I ALWAYS CRY..when I watch our wedding video, it was the best moment in my life.
***
I AM NOT...a fan of body piercings, tongue especially - it makes me start to gag.
***
I DANCE....when ever I can, in the kitchen, on the trampoline, in the pool mostly to the embarrassment of my kids.
***
I SING...as loud as I can. I am trying to teach myself to sing the Alto part. In church it is funny to see the man leaning away from me as I try and I mean try to hit those notes.
***
I NEVER...swear out loud.
***
I RARELY..turn down dessert.
***
I CRY WHEN...I know not what to do to make life not so hard for my kids.
***
I WATCH...chick flicks as I fold the laundry. I am sentimental.
***
I AM NOT ALWAYS..happy to wake up in the morning.
***
I HATE THAT....I am not the first to jump on a service project or want to bring in a meal.
***
I AM CONFUSED ABOUT....sprinkling systems and why ours does not work.
***
I NEED...a long vacation with the man and I mean a long one (hint hint mom and dad).
***
I SHOULD...be cleaning the basement.
***
However I am going to go get another "Burner aka Diet Pepsi" and read my book till the kids come home from school and not worry so much about what "i" should be doing.
Thank you Caroline for letting me borrow the idea.

Ok - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS!!! I love the idea of self-reflection, sort of a self-inventory. And the "trigger words" are just what we need to sometimes get us going!!! I am gonna "steal" this for a future blog post...Thanks!!!

Many of your things are the same as me. And I think everyone should have an "I" day and NOT clean the basement. It will still be there waiting for you tomorrow unfortunately.

You can totally steal stuff off my blog...as long as it within reason. Why do I let you do this?...because I love you!

Have a great weekend. Do some dancing. And take your long vacay with the hubster. Topics including children and work are off limits - so are fights. Those are our rules.

Good for you! Everyone needs a little, no, A LOT of "i" time.

I am a huge chick flick fan with doing laundry! It is the only thing that can get me to sit and really fold it!
