Friend Makin' Monday

This one looked like fun, so here I go! For those who aren't familiar, Amber hosts this every week. Join on in, it's lots of fun! :-)

I am.... still adjusting to daylight savings.

I think.... a lot. About everything.

I should.... exercise more - a LOT more - and get back into counting calories.

I dream.... vividly almost every night.

I want.... to find a freelance editing job that would allow me to work as much or as little as I want. I want a freelance editing (or not freelance - that would work, too) job that is editing novels.

I know.... that I need to get back to going to church. But, where? That is the question.

I don't like.... PMS. I hate how it makes me so friggin' irritable!

I smell.... nothing right now, which is a good thing with two kids in diapers! ;-)

I hear.... Natalie talking to herself about something. Not sure what, as she's still mostly difficult to understand. The one word I keep hearing is "car" - not sure why.

I fear.... too much.

I usually.... try to stick to a pretty predictable routine, as that's how I function best.

I search.... using Google only. Haven't even tried Bing. I'm just too loyal to Google! LOL

I miss.... my family. I hate being far away from them. :-(

I always.... kick myself for taking on too much.

I regret.... allowing myself to get so deeply into debt during college - and not working seriously to pay it off ASAP.

I wonder.... if I'll ever get to where I feel like myself again - the me I was before PPD and getting fat.

I crave.... time all alone in my own home. I'd like to just read in the comfort of my own home, watch whatever I want whenever it strikes my fancy, sleep in my own bed as long as I feel like I need to, not have company when I pee in my own toilet.

I remember.... the layout of the apartment I lived in when I was 2, as well as many other things that surprise me.

I need.... Jesus.

I forget.... what it's like to feel well-rested.

I feel.... physically exhausted and emotionally conflicted.

I can.... do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I can't.... seem to find the motivation I need to get myself exercising more. Nor can I find the perfect type of exercise for me.

I am happy.... when I am with my family, while playing with my children, while reading a good book.

I lose.... peace when I'm not following God's plan.

I sing.... along to every song I know the words to - I LOVE to sing!

I listen.... mostly to Christian music. I'd say at least 90% of what I listen to is Christian. As you likely know already, SKILLET is my FAVORITE. But I also love Tenth Avenue North, Amy Grant, Third Day, Switchfoot - to name a few ...

I shop.... too much.

I eat.... too much junk.

I love.... God, Jesus, my family (husband, kids, extended family), music, reading, animals.

Nice to meet you @ FMM!

I LOVE to sing, too! And I happen to know the words to a LOT of songs so yes, I do a lot of singing. But mostly in the car, to the radio, while my husband listens patiently. haha

ham1299 said...

LOL Yes, I'm a singer in the car, to the radio - although I try not to let anyone (except my kids) hear me. I'm just too self-conscious. Oh, sometimes I sing in the shower! LOL Thanks for stopping by! :-)
