.Tag, I'm It.

My bloggy friend Ramee tagged me to share seven things about myself, and then to pass it on to seven other people. So here it goes....

1. I don't like to drive. I live in a little hick-town and can manage to drive around here, but anything more than that sends me into a state of panic. Literally. My whole body tenses so much that when I am finished driving my shoulders ache. I had to drive "into the city" a few times alone for OB appointments when pregnant with Scotty. I always got to the doctor's office, a sweaty, panicky mess with elevated blood pressure! It is a big fear that I really hope to get over someday soon.

2. I cannot sing to save my life, and it is torture. I love music and all things musical, and feel trapped in this non-singing body!

3. I have gained ten pounds since moving home from camp this summer. And it shows. A lot of it is do to the stress surrounding our life right now. A lot of it is do to laziness and a lack of discipline that I allowed to creep in. My treadmill is going to get a beating today while the children nap. Really. Hold me to it.

4. I thought I was pregnant over Thanksgiving. I wasn't and am not. I am still a little sad, but I realize that it is probably for the best with so much of our life up-in-the-air.

5. Sometimes right before I go to bed at night, when I check on and pray over the children, I sneak Scotty out of his crib and hold him close. He snuggles into my neck, and I breathe in his scent and memorize those moments. I know they are fleeting, and want to cherish them. Fortunately when I lay him back down he goes right back to sleep. No harm done, right?!

6. I wish Jim and I had not gone on a honeymoon. The whole time we were gone, all I wanted to do was settle in our home and life together, and see what it felt like to live normally as husband and wife. Now that we have been married almost eight years, I want to see what it would be like to escape normal life and enjoy a honeymoon!

7. I used to care a lot about what people thought of me. I am working on that with God's help. That is part of the reason I decided to pierce my nose this summer. Not as a rebellion thing - goodness knows I am waaay too old for that, but it was a way to put what I am learning to practice. I know kind of a weird way, but it's the truth.

Wow, I feel like maybe I was a little too honest with some of these! Eek, but I am trying to be more authentic,so I will publish this. But first the seven people I pass this along to are
1. My sis.
2. Bethany
3. Gina
4. Carrie
5. Jenn
6. Joy
7. Liz

Have fun ladies! And if I didn't tag you why don't you share some things here in my comments? I would love to read them! {grin}

I have a paranoia of driving in the rain. I live in a rainy state, and when it's dark at night I am TERRIFIED I'll hit someone in a cross walk. It's torture.

I'm a new reader, and almost every post I get teary eyed. The Boys to Men one got me especially, as I have 2 small boys; 3.5 and 2 years old.

Hey, by the way, who won the Doug and Melissa giveaway? =)

#1 and #2 sound just like me! I wanted to be a singer when I was little, unfortunately I was never any good. And I hate driving too. Unfortunately I live IN the big city, so I hate driving anywhere. Very interesting info about you!

@Ruth Ann &; Josh - The winner was announced here

Carrie said...

Oh, that is so interesting about why you got your nose pierced!! Thanks for sharing! I hope to get around to posting one of these at some point. :)

Jenna said...

Been enjoying your more frequent posts. Wondering if you would have any suggestions for recipes for a family we are having for dinner that has a daughter that is allergic to milk? I know you are going through that with yours. Do you cook separate meals for him?

loved reading about you. :)

Mommy Bear said...

I don't really like to drive either but I don't tense up or anything. Fun Q & A!
