Friend Makin Monday

I am so happy to be participating in Friend Makin Monday today, thanks to Jen over at Tatertots and Jello! I am always looking to make new friends.
Speaking of new friends, I would like to say thank you to all of the wonderful people who left comments and thoughts on my blog over the weekend.  I almost didn't know what to do with myself! Rob will testify, I spent so much time visiting and commenting and meeting new people and finding new recipes - but it was so much fun!

So let's keep that ball rolling, shall we? I can't wait to see who and what else I discover!

I AM...sitting across the table from my husband, who is also on his laptop.

I THINK...I am going to have a snack later.

I SHOULD...probably not have that snack.  Or at least work out tomorrow morning to make up.

I DREAM...of having children of my own one day.

I WANT...too many things to name here!

I KNOW...that I am loved.

I DON'T LIKE...when my food doesn't turn out as I'd planned - if it takes longer or is done too soon, I get really aggravated! I need to work on this.

I SMELL...pork chops.  Because I'm sitting in the kitchen and that's what we had for dinner.

I HEAR...the dishwasher and the TV in the living room - some sort of golf thing?

I FEAR...coming up short.  And mice.

I USUALLY...don't sleep too late anymore.

I SEARCH...for "meaning" all the time.

I MISS...when my brother and sister were babies.  They were easy then! (Well, it's true)

I ALWAYS...end up forgetting something.

I REGRET...dropping out of college.  I always will.

I WONDER...when the Bee Gees decided that going falsetto all the time was the way to go.  Do you think it was just something they stumbled upon?

I CRAVE...pasta.  All the time.  All day.  And sushi.

I REMEMBER...wondering if I would ever find someone for me.  And then I did.

I NEED...to remember to fold my laundry before I go to sleep or else I'll be mad at myself tomorrow morning!

I FORGET...that not everyone gets my sense of humor all the time.

I FEEL...very strongly.

I CAN...do and be anything I want.

I CAN'T...let doubt cloud my thinking! Oh, I also can't drive a car.

I AM HAPPY...most of the time, through everything.

I LOSE...my keys far too often.  But they're never really lost.  I just *think* they are.

I SING...far too little anymore.  That used to be my #1 passion.

I LISTEN...mostly to oldies.

I SHOP...at Walmart and Target far, far too frequently.

I EAT...uh...far, far too frequently.  And too much.

I LOVE...the way life just winds down its own path regardless of our plans or fears - things will always turn out for the best, but you may not see it for many miles down the road.


I look forward to visiting everyone else!

Hi Jen! (Lots of us Jen in the world aren't there!)

I hate when my food fails too...I started cooking from the Pioneer Woman and my food has been beautiful, my husband filled (and asking for more) and my friends wowed.

I adore how life is unexpectly wonderful too!

You can always go back to college. I did over and over, and finally got my degree. YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

Mmmmmmm.....pasta! I love it all the time too!

And yes, life leads us where we need to go! We may fight it every step of the way, but where we end can be so beautiful!

Hi, Jen! Thank so much for commenting on my banana bread recipe! What a cool post to click over to - I feel like I know you! LOL And I have also had the same thought about the BeeGees. Same with ACDC! :)

So nice to meet you! That comment about the Beegees really had me cracking up! VERY good point!

So glad you're joining in! Hope you'll stick around!

Haha. The Beegees. It's amazing the things we think about when left alone with our own thoughts. :)

Thanks for the comment. I totally forgot how dreadfully fearful I am of mice also! I have a couple of posts about some incidents, that are so dramatic. Ha! Anyway, nice to meet you!

I too forget that not everyone gets my sense of humor so I end up insulting people unintentionally.

Hee, hee! Target is my weakness! I avoid going there as much as possible - I'm not sure if it helps or backfires! LOL

I love Target too. You shouldn't have regrets. Go back to school if that is what you want. It really isn't too late. I loved reading your list. I also read a few of your recipes. YUMMY.

I'm writing for you. I'm speaking to you.

So I would like to hear from you in return. Did that story make you laugh, or think? Does that recipe look good? Do you relate to me or totally disagree?

Let me hear what YOU think!
