I AM...

Yesterday I was surfin' some Blogs, and read this cool little meme on Rochelle's Blog at (Getting There)
who had gotten the idea from Caroline at
who borrowed it from September Mom at
who collected it from Kitten at
who found it from the originator, Emalee at 

I enjoyed peeling back the layers 
of each woman's interpretation of the meme,
curious to find
the original impetus.
You might enjoy exploring their sites too...

Here is mine:

I HAVE: all I need
I DISLIKE: dishonesty and prejudice
I MISS: my family and friends in California
I FEAR: snakes
I FEEL: intensely
I HEAR: Roberta Flack on the radio and Izzy chewing on her Bully Bone
I SMELL: burnt bacon...(I always do when I have a cold)...
I CRAVE: a sense of accomplishment
I USUALLY: make lists of things to do
I SEARCH: for my purpose and meaning to my life
I WONDER: whether my daughter will have a boy or a girl
I REGRET: wasting time
I LOVE: my husband, daughters, grandsons, family and friends
I CARE: about my fellow man
I ALWAYS: want to be positive
I WORRY: about my Dad
I REMEMBER: the good times
I HAVE: more patience for others than I do for myself
I DANCE: whenever the mood strikes me
I SING: horribly, but like to sing along with The Three Tenors while driving
I DON'T ALWAYS: appreciate what I have
I ARGUE: when I believe in something strongly
I WRITE: because it feels good
I LOSE: perspective with momentum and then beat myself up over it
I WISH: I could lose 20 pounds and have lower cholesterol and triglyceride numbers
I LISTEN: to my gut
I DON'T UNDERSTAND: why people have to choose sides
I CAN USUALLY BE FOUND: on one of my computers
I AM SCARED: of drowning
I NEED: my alone time to recharge
I FORGET: less than when I was going through menopause
I AM HAPPY: the majority of the time

I'm so glad that you did this meme. Loved all your answers. It must be nice to listen to the Three Tenors while driving. I'll have to try it. I try to listen to my gut too. It never steers me wrong. I'm happy to follow you on this wonderful blog!
