ok, ok... i know... it's a very larrrrrrgggge picture of me... but for some reason, it just worked that way with where my mind is. sort of up close and personal type thinking. i would love to think that my kids, by the time they are old enough to appreciate any of this to be able to look at these pages and really know me... really see who i was and how i've progressed. anyway... the journaling is a book... just some random stuff about me. now i need to get a good picture of will and do a similar page... and of course update them through the years. :)
JOURNALING: This is me. I am your mom. I am 32. I love to scrapbook. I hate rainy days. I love music while Iím driving or cleaning. I hate doing dishes. I love coffee with half & half and lots of sugar. I hate the taste, but love the smell of beer. I donít wear perfume. Almost all of my shoes have at least a 2-inch heel on them. I love blue jeans. I love when the sunshine completely lights up the living room. Diamonds do nothing for me. I have
no sense of direction and get lost or at least make a wrong turn several times a week. I get spooked very easily. I am niave. I love puppy dogs, but I totally misunderstand cats, therefore Iím a bit scared of them. I fell in love with your dad on the way to the restaraunt on our first date, not kidding. And, I loved his Jeep. I
donít really stress out about how much TV you watch. I live for mexican food. I love to shoot pool and Iím in fact pretty good at it. I canít play a single musical instrument or any kind of sport. Iím very girly when it comes to hair, make-up and fasion. I hate all bugs, especially ones that fly. I love windy days... they are my favorite... wind relaxes me. I hate clutter and therefore do not ďcollectĒ anything. I like very modern and clean lines when it comes to decor. I love organization, but Iím not always that great at it. I love checklists. I love filling out forms and it really stresses me out if a ďblankĒ is left blank. I love romantic comedies with happy endings. I canít listen to classical music... Iíve tried. I love God. I love chocolate milk and usually drink at least 2 or 3 glasses a day... sometimes 4. I donít know much about politics and sadly prefer it that way. Up until the past few years, my absolute favorite singer in the world was Tori Amos... I even had her sheet music played at our wedding... but Iíve since outgrown her. Now my favorites include Derek Webb, Jars of Clay, Norah Jones... oh, and I secretly love todayís top 40 music. Iím not a pack rat at all... if it hasnít been used or worn in a couple of months, it gets given away... or thrown out. I donít eat breakfast... but I almost always eat a huge lunch, but then Iím still full at dinner time, so thatís a pretty light meal for me. I miss smoking. I love Chuck-E-Cheese pizza. I donít want a big house... mainly because I would get too spooked. I love BMWs, but I wouldnít buy one... I donít understand that type of purchase. I love, love, love to shop for clothes. I donít own a set of China or fancy silverware, and probably never will. I love our house. I love being your mom. I love being 32. I love being Willís wife. I love who God has made me.
(my gosh i hope there aren't any typos, but i'm sure there are. oh well.)
