I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged by a sorority sister and new blogger Travis. She currently lives in Iowa but is gearing up to move to Florida for missions work. I know...I'm thinking a vacation is calling me there too :-)

*I am-- A mother to Matthew and a weekend med/surg/telemetry nurse

*I want---A happy home. Matthew to grow up being independent, feeling safe and seceure, well loved and did I mention independent? :-)

*I have--been very blessed. I have wonderful friends and family. I truely feel I am loved. I have a good job and I only have to work 2 days a me, that is about all I can handle!!

*I wish---my father could have met Matthew and my best friend. He died 17 years ago May 11th and I know he would have LOVED Matthew. Matthew's middle name is William...after my father.

*I miss---my father horribly this time of year. The anniversary is always the toughest time of year. I can deal with holidays just fine but this gets me. I've blogged about it before actually. I'm sure some think I'm crazy. I see an Exide truck (the company he worked for) and I get goosebumps and think maybe my dad is looking down at me and giving me the...."everythings going to be ok" signal.....I went to Iowa a couple of weeks ago and on the way home I saw two trucks. Seriously...TWO? I think it was a sign. I am not looking forward to working Mother's Day...May 11th. It's two weeks away and I'm already dreading it. I know...not the right attitude. Maybe my heart will change by then.

*I fear---failure. Being a single mom has its own challenges but so far nothing I can't handle. I don't want to smother and protect Matthew from all the evils of the world but I also don't want to throw him to the wolves either. There has to be a delicate balance of raising a good kid, who's not a momma's boy and who will make a good husband someday :-)

*I feel----love, fear, freaked out, anger and sadness. Ah...can you say PMS??

*I hear---Rascal Flatts. "I Melt"

*I smell---freshly mowed that smell :-)

*I crave--chocolate chip cookies. Oh those are my favorite...with a diet coke.

*I search---I agree with Travis on this...I rarely pay retail anymore. If you buy anything online...always search for a free shipping coupon code. :-)

*I wonder---what the future holds. I hate waiting. LOL

*I regret---oh I have lots of those and they are so not suitable for print here!!!

*I cry---at the drop of the hat....Ya caught me at a bad time for this I think I just worry about stuff I have no control over and worrying just gets you no where.

*I sing---amazingly in the car. Oh...I'm GOOD. I love country music, a little rock and roll. I will sing songs I don't know too. Yeah...I'm fun to go on LONG trips in the car with. I will sing while I mow too....can't mow without my iPod...just ask my neighbors. And I dance a little too. It's scarry to watch.

*I need---to work on my patence. I'm pretty sure I inherited that trait from my dad...or so I've been told. I catch myself with a little road rage problem too.

Well, on that note, maybe I'll end this. I know I haven't "blogged" in a while. I have been busy working on the yard. Oh it looks SO green and lush. I've been trying to get the bare spots to fill in. And I got new storm doors to replace the screen doors I had. Oh I LOVE my new doors. I will have to take some pics and post them. They are storm doors and screen doors too.....very nice...and they lock.
