2- I need to loose some poundage. I was 98# until I got into my 40’s, then my metabolism got messed up (thyroid cancer --- I didn’t know) and I gained lots of weight. Since I never dieted before, I can’t seem to do it now. I say I’m okay with the extra weight, but secretly (until now) am not happy about it.
3- I fancy myself to be something of a comedienne…I laugh a lot at my own jokes and sarcastic thoughts. Not everyone “gets” me.
4- I love to be alone. (I also love to spend time with Patrick. Okay, so I am a dichotomy!)
5- I’m beginning to think I might be addicted to blogs. Since returning to Phoenix I’m on my laptop every day.
6- I’ve been married to Patrick for over 20 years now, but was married more than once before. Nothing I’m proud of, but it’s the past and seems like a lifetime ago.
7- Though I put on a façade of being confident, I really am very shy & sometimes even depressed. I force myself to be outgoing.
8- Patrick just told me I should let you all know that I don’t suffer brats gladly. By that he means that I have little patience for naughty children (dogs yes, kids no). I also, like Suz, think I could be the Super Nanny.
9- I really do not like being in Phoenix. I miss our home in farrr N.Idaho and am counting down the days until I can return. [I have to keep reading my sign that says, “There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.” That helps pull me out of the dumps.]
AND last but not least:
10- Though I just said (#9) that I don’t like “being in” Phx, I wasn’t completely honest. Because, I do like Phx. for the following reasons: I met Patrick in Phoenix. I gave birth to my daughter in Phoenix. I was born again in Phoenix and came to have a personal relationship with Jesus in Phoenix. So, my life was saved in Phoenix. Forget #9. I always, always, always have something to be thankful for!
