I Am...

Some time ago, Cheryl had this post and challenged us to post the "I am's" about ourselves. So, here goes...

I am: really ready for this splint to be removed. I have tried my best to maintain a positive attitude, and for the most part I think I have succeeded, but I will be really happy tomorrow at 1:30 PM. I expect to be in some apparatus for several more weeks, but just a half hour reprieve will be welcome.

I miss: My sister-in-law, Bonnie. She has been gone three years and I miss her every day.

I shop: Sporadically, but when I so, I most always find something I "just can't live without".

I hear: The chirping of the birds outside my sun porch.

I crave: My friends would all say attention, which is true. But right now I also crave a Wegman's chocolate brownie. Yummy!

I love: Jim and our daughters, my son-in-law Brian, and my extended family and friends.

I wonder: What my son would be like had he grown to manhood.

I celebrate: Everything I can.

I always: Love to take a nap.

I sing: Poorly. I sing very loudly when I'm alone in the car.

I cry: Much less than I used to. I think the sadness and hardships of life have taught me not to cry over small things.

I don't always: Finish projects I start. Knitting is a perfect example.

I pray: A lot but even still, I often neglect my quiet time. I'm working on that.

I write: Because I love to.

I lose: Everything but weight.

I need: People.

I surf: Not

I dread: Becoming a crotchety old lady. Nah! That won't happen.

I anticipate: The joy I'll feel when this splint is removed.

I laugh: As much as I possibly can.

Today has been a perfectly gorgeous day. Jim helped me with my summer program at a local library. We had 39 children and 20 adults. It was fantastic.

What a great list, I can relate to many of them myself. It will be so nice when you get that cast off. You will feel like you have been set free!

I know you can't wait to get the cast off! Anything new will feel better, at least for a while. You have been a real trooper during it all! How is Jim's hand doing?

Loved your list! You are so truthful. I've always admired you for that.

Gee, 3 years already for Bonnie! Time flies, doesn't it? It seems the older we get, the faster it flies!

Talk to you soon!

Love the list and will do one with my next post.

Happy you're getting a break from the "arm friend".
