Who do you love and what are you doing about it?

I am a little confused about this question.  I love my hubby, my kiddos, and mom and dad and brother….  but what am I doing ABOUT it?  I’m not really sure what this means.  I guess I could start being better to everyone I love.  I tend to take things for granted.


Do you ask enough questions or do you settle for what you know?

I’m a question asker.  Even when I dont particularly care about the subject…  You never know when you might need the useless information.  Also, when talking to others-people always like to talk about themselves.  That helps conversations flow well.  🙂


What do you wish you spent more time doing five years ago?

Working out.  I am so sick and tired of being overweight.  I gained a bunch of weight when I was pregnant with Ethan and I never lost it.  I didnt gain anything with Emma though, weird huh?  I am at my prepregnancy weight before Emma but still overweight,  *sigh*

I worked hard on the treadmill today.  I hope to be running a 5k by the end of the year.  If I make progress from where I am now, I will be happy.  I am so out of shape.  So, I am just aiming for the goal of progress so I wont be frustrated.  🙂

Life Lesson

What life lesson did you learn the hard way?

The only bad thing about burning your bridges behind you is that the world is round.    If I had it to do all over again, I wouldn’t burn so many bridges.


What gets you excited…

What gets you excited about life?

Change.  I like change, well most of it.  I like that as the kids grow older and we grow older there will be change, some good and some bad, but as things evolve I’m excited to see how it does.  I like fresh things to do and fresh ideas.

I think the thing that gets me most excited about life and change is seeing how Ethan and Emma will turn out.  Ethan is a bit of an enigma in the sense that he will either take the path of least resistance, or follow his dreams.  I know that holds true for any child, but with Ethan dealing with Asperger’s, plus having a bit of my fortitude, he has the capacity to go far.  I have to help him reign his feelings in a bit.  I’m not quite sure how to do that.  If/When Ethan reaches his goal of being a Avian Veterinarian (and yes I know this will probably change) he cant be yelling at clients to get out of his office if they piss him off.  With Emma it is a bit too early to tell what she will be into, but she’s a smart cookie.

Although, there is a part of me, a small part, that wishes they would stay little.

I really dont like Facebook.  I am strangely drawn to it, however. 

I dont really care how so and so’s kid pooped in the potty for the first time, or how you had such a great time partying out with the girls last night (and the night before that–hey where are your kids?), I dont play Farmville anymore, as it got too convoluted.  There are some really funny posts-and I think that is what keeps me coming back.  Especially from this one guy.  I dont know him.  I dont think I knew him in high school-he added me for some strange reason-but I’m sure glad he did.  His posts make me laugh almost on a daily basis. 

My daily question is this, What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

I think the most sensible thing I have ever heard is when my husband said he loved me for the first time.  He knew a good thing when he saw it  😉


Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?

I have thought about this question a lot and I dont really compare myself to anyone.  I have such low self esteem, that it might depress me further to do that.
