My attempt to find balance with the sweets, and the sours, of life.
Saturday, July 3, 2010
1. Do you feel that you need to keep repeating yourself when talking to a particular person? Yes, my son. He's 9. I think he just tries to wear me down.
2. It's July. Do you have anything special planned? Independence Day with the family and my son's 10th birthday (I can hardly believe it.)!
3. Who is your big celebrity crush? Harry Connick, Jr.
4. Tell us about a local restaurant you are sure we'd love. Wag's in Frederick, MD. Great little "below the sidewalk" pub.
5. Tell us about the shyest person that you deal with regularly. Our pastor. Sometimes I think a pastor needs to be a bit more outgoing, but he means well.
6. What is your vision of heaven and hell? The usual cliche's.
7. What is your neighborhood like? Our neighborhood is nice and quiet, but sometimes too quiet -- it seems all the kids disappear during the summer and it makes me sad for my own kids.
8. What's your favorite cook-out food? It's hard to beat a good burger on the grill -- accompanied by an ear of corn, yum.
9. When was the last time that you saw fireworks? Let's see, maybe the last time I kissed my hubbo . . . or, no, wait, the last time we had a big fight! Oh, okay, last Fourth of July . . . if that's what you want to hear.
My thanks to Sam at Saturday 9 . . . check her blog to join in or read more.
“Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, ‘In this world, Elwood, you must be...’ - she always called me Elwood - ‘...in this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.’ Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.”~Elwood P. Dowd in Harvey
I am a stay-at-home mom who is coming to grips with the fact that my children are growing up, and that is bitter sweet. I have several pets who understand me including a couple dogs, some beautiful pigeons (yes, pigeons), some chickens who boss me around, and a mourning dove who I believe is God's little whisper to me from heaven. I was a lawyer before I got really serious and became a mom. I love to knit, write, cook, and to take good care of my family. We struggle with my daughter's Reactive Attachment Disorder, and hold hands very tightly sometimes while we withstand the high tide of her challenges. Through it all, I am blessed to have a husband who is the corner piece to my puzzle.
