I've come to realize...TAG

(I am not tagging anyone in particular, just everyone who wants to participate.)

1. I've come to realize that my chest-size ...has grown in quantity and decreassed in quality.

2. I've come to realize that my the absolute most rewarding & important thing I could ever be doing with my time. Love being a wife & mom

3. I've come to realize that when I'm driving...I am usually going one of 4 places. The gym, my church, the store or home

4. I've come to realize that I need....My husband. He is like water for me. Just talking to him on the phone makes me feel refreshed and keeps everything in perspective.

5. I've come to realize that I have lost...a lot of time worrying about things that now seem so silly & selfish.

6. I've come to realize that I hate it when...I loose my patience with my 2 year old. I have to constantly remind myself that he is a baby too. It's just so hard to deal with the tantrums sometimes.

7. I've come to realize that if I'm drunk… then i'm not trying to get pregnant, pregnant or it's been a few years.

8. I've come to realize that money...Comes and goes. Steve getting laid off for those 8 months really gave us a reality check. One minute you have a home & security & a well paying job and at any minute it can all be gone! Family, health, love & faith are what truly give you security and they are enough to sustain you! But getting that job back DEF showed us how much easier things are when you are not under so much pressure and gave us a whole new appriciation for the abilty to have a job right now!

9. I've come to realize that certain people...hold grudges. I am not one of them and I have always had a hard time understanding people who do. Especially over really small, un important things!

10. I've come to realize that I'll always ... cherish photos of my kids. They change everyday and I love being able to re visit the baby fat and chubby cheeks and all the other changes that come down the road.

11. I've come to realize that my sibling(s) one of my very best friends. He gets me and I get him. We have been through a lot together. And when everything in our lives was rocky and confussing we were eachothers only constant.

12. I've come to realize that my mom...Is never gunna change but I love her anyways. I might not agree with her choices and may never understand her priorities, but they truly are a reflection of who she is. I have to get past how they differ from my own priorities and appriciate that she is who she is and always has been and will be.

13. I've come to realize that my cell phone...Is such a piece of crap! But there are a million things i'd rather have than a better phone so I just keep it.

14. I've come to realize that when I woke up this morning...I was exhausted. I was in the hospital all day yesterday from severe dehydration a heart rate of 141 and blood pressure of 82/54 AND falling down the stairs & hurting my neck & back. Not to mention I have a 2 year old and a 2 month old AND my husband is gone 50% of the month. He happens to be gone right now. I feel like I can't take the pain medicine bacause I have to be alert to be a mom. Of course my mom is very busy and i'm on my own. If only the baby would sleep thru the night tonite I would be so happy!!!!!!! Ok, ok enough feeling bad for myself.

16. I've come to realize that right now I am thinking...That I REALLY need to go to bed!

17. I've come to realize that my dad...Is a very genuine person and that he did the best he could. He has a big heart and good intentions. I am greatful that he and I have gotten so close as I have become and adult. I see a deeper side of him than most other people do. Who is is and how he acts differ a lot of the time and he regrets a lot of choices he has made. I respect & appriciate that he is open about things he wishes he would have done differntly.

18. I've come to realize that when I get on Facebook...I am usualy nursing the baby and make tons of typos since I am just using one hand.

I am sorry that you are sick and all alone. If you would just move here you would have all of us, your family, to take care of you. :) I hope all is well with the kids, I am excited to meet the new baby, soon hopefully.
