My bed is: not seen enough! But comfy when it is occupied by me and hubby.
One thing I know for sure about the opposite sex: They are very much opposite but yet very much the same…
I am glad I’m my sex because: I can be a mommy. Amazing that these big kids (14 and taller than me, then the almost 11 year old still little than me, and the 3 year old so tiny!) were all in my tummy at one time…
My Best friends are: Nancy and Lynn and my hubby Roger.
My favorite pajamas are: Long t-shirts.
A perfect kiss is: spontaneous.
The last three CDs I bought are: Didn’t buy but won in a singing contest – latest by Natalie Grant, a demo by John somebody called Miracle, and the Best of Jump Five (that was cool for my daughter!). (It’s Cell Phone Singer contest on 95.5 the Fish in Cleveland). Rog bought me Clay Aiken Christmas for CHristmas. 2 before that? Can’t remember — maybe Amy Grant Behind the Eyes and FFH’s album from like 3-4 years ago?
Last song that made me cry was: song on the Fish that says “He’s my Son.” (I’ll include lyrics and link below, it’s so great).
I could not live without: chocolate, cola, my family, my guitar, our computer, my Lord.
My most treasured possession is: guitars, family, books, pictures, my stories and poems, Roger’s stories and poems, our artwork (kids’ too).
What did you do last night: ate spaghetti with leftover pizza toppings mixed in, sat around exhausted, went to bed without cleaning up anything.
My skin’s reaction to the sun is (tan/burn): Burn slightly, slowly tan.
-I Do/Do Not Believe In-
Love at first sight? Sometimes — it seemed to happen with hubby.
Luck? No. I more believe in miracles.
Fate? I don’t know for sure.
Aliens? Not sure.
Heaven? Absolutely. It is my comfort when I feel despair over my oldest son’s condition.
Hell? Yes, though I’m not sure if it’s everlasting due to different doctrines I was exposed to growing up.
Horoscopes? I steer clear because they seem too eerily true at times.
Soul Mates? Yes.
-Here’s What I Think About… –
Backstabbers? Don’t think about that much anymore, but worry over my daughter getting hurt by that crap like I did. (and eventually Ryan too)
School? Most horrible years – 4th and 7th grade. Best years – 6th grade, 10th grade, 12th grade. Rest, fair to middle. LOVED COLLEGE. Going back, hopefully, this fall. Be quite different I’m sure to be 40 in college. A whole new world that is getting more and more populated, I hear, by us old fogies.
Love? It takes much work to keep it going for 18 years of marriage and 21 years together, but is very worth it!
Friends before Love: Roger was my best friend for 4 months while I was still dating another and being stalked by yet another. He was my rock. We fell in love without knowing it, almost, and then I had to break up with my first boyfriend.
Took a Shower: Sat. night.
Talked on the phone: 1 minute ago to hubby.
Kissed someone: Ryan, last night. Little 3-year-old kisses on my cheek 😉
Hugged someone: This morning, Ryan was in the bed with me at 5:30 a.m.
Seen someone I haven’t seen in a while: Colleen’s old friend and her mom from 1st grade, last week at drs. when she broke her hand.
Drove: Saturday morning.
Which celebrity or famous person are you in love with? of course in a joking manner – Keanu Reeves, Bono (more from early 80’s), guy from Creed, long-haired singer from the Cult (80’s), Ashton Kucher kinda with LONG hair (not the short), Matthew Fox, hmmm, probably more.
One thing I’m po’d about right now is: Nothing, really.
The last movie I saw in the theater was: The Incredibles for 5 minutes until I had to take loud chris out of the theater to wait in the car.
The thing I don’t understand is: how time goes so fast yet so slow.
The one thing I love about the opposite sex is: That he loves going to work and I can stay home.
This week I am: going to set up my desk.
This Summer vacation I am: not going anywhere and saving lots of money, I hope. (We started a boring but necessary and worth it DMP (debt management plan, our own) in April where we pay $200 extra a month on our credit cards. We hope to have them paid off by 2008 so we can get a bigger house.
-The thing that I’m looking forward to the most about…-
Tomorrow: maybe I’ll have time to watch the O.C. tapes I’ve made? And it’s Ryan’s open house for preschool and his pizza party – fun 3-year-old stuff!
Next Summer: As in 2006? Maybe another vacation to Put-in-Bay/Port Clinton.
Next Week: Seeing counselor at local community college to discuss my getting music therapy degree and how insane I am 😉
People call me: On the phone continuously and usually it’s a sales call.
The person who I talk to the most on the phone is: Lynn.
The person I had the longest on-going relationship with is: Roger.
The person I have been friends with the longest is: Lynn (1976!)
The person(s) who knows the most about me is: Lynn, Mom, Nancy, Roger.
The most difficult thing to do is? Let your child do something new but necessary, that might be dangerous!
The one person who can’t hide things from me: not sure.
I have these pets: Spice-a-rooni
I wish I was: much much less fat.
The best shoulder to cry on: friends and family above.
I almost died when: We were driving in the fog in 1986 or so in New York State on Route 17 and didn’t realize the road had changed into a 2-lane from a 4-lane and we were driving away in the left-hand lane thinking it was the right way. We didn’t realize until 10 minutes later when we’d randomly switched to the right lane and then this semi went by. omgosh.
What I am wearing right now is: Jammies.
I lose all respect for people who: cheat, lie, don’t try their best. Abuse the system. Can’t stand it when people don’t even try!
The worst pain I was ever in was: When I broke my wrist, and right before pushing out the bee-bees.
My room is full of: Clothes that I have no space for and piles of books and CDs that I also have no space for.
My downfall is: Eating too much, wasting time like this too often, getting distracted.
He’s My Son – Mark Schultz
I’m down on my knees again tonight
I’m hoping this prayer will turn out right
See there is a boy that needs Your help
I’ve done all that I can do myself
His mother is tired
I’m sure You can understand
Each night as he sleeps
She goes in to hold his hand
And she tries not to cry
As the tears fill her eyes
Can You hear me?
Am I getting through tonight?
Can You see him?
Can You make him feel all right?
If You can hear me
Let me take his place somehow
See, he’s not just anyone
He’s my son
Sometimes late at night I watch him sleep
I dream of the boy he’d like to be
I try to be strong and see him through
But God who he needs right now is You
Let him grow old
Live life without this fear
What would I be
Living without him here
He’s so tired and he’s scared
Let him know that You’re there
Can You hear me?
Can You see him?
Please don’t leave him
He’s my son
