I ... Meme

I borrowed this meme from Betty in Paraguay who lives in a Spanish-speaking country, blogs in English, and speaks German at home!.

I live: in busy, cold metro Detroit

I work: as a part-time instructor at a community college

I smell: banana bread baking and soup simmering

I listen: to the cd of choir music I am trying to learn after skipping a month of rehearsals

I hide: under my pillow during thunder storms

I walk: to the end of the driveway and back and you wonder why I haven't lost any weight

I write: better than I do math

I see: the clutter more often than I see the beauty

I sing: every day

I can: avoid burned banana bread by not blogging while I bake

I watch: t.v. in bed every night

I daydream: all the time

I want: someone to help me learn to play the bass

If I am angry, excited, sad or happy: you will know

I read: every single day

I love: when someone holds my hand

I rode: a jet ski only once

I fear: outliving Checkered or my kids

I eat: incessantly

I drink: far less alcohol than you might think possible

I play: a passable house-rules bocce ball

I miss: having my parents and sisters close by

I forgive: s l o w l y

I drive: a Chrysler mini-van. Oh, so sexy!

I dream: of being naked in public or being enrolled in a course and never attending until the final exam

I kiss: more people that I used to

I once: introduced a couple to each other who then got married and did NOT invite me to the wedding

I remember: how I used wonder what stay-at-home moms did all day

I don't: really enjoy the "greet your neighbor" portion of church

I believe: that the Lord knows me and loves me anyway

I hate: the way my boy bites his fingernails

I wear: jeans, jeans, and jeans

I get annoyed when: a student asks if we did anything important in the last class

Never in my life have I: been downhill skiing

When I'm nervous: I find a bathroom

When I was 5: I tried to drop out of school

If I ever go back to school: I would probably skip a lot of classes

And, by the way: I deeply appreciate that you stopped by here and stayed to read.

This was such a great "get to know you more" post. I may have to steal it!

I also tried to drop out of school when I was 6. First grade just didn't appeal to me and my better judgement.

I drink far less alcohol than I should to deal with my daily life.

Urgh..I hate the 'greet your neighbor' part at church too.
I am by nature a worrier, I ALWAYS worry about my children.
I absolutely HATE feet, they gross me out!!

I am so glad you're blogging again. When I read your posts it's like spending a little time with you, in the middle of my day, when I'm "working." You're fun.

I don't really like the greet your neighbor at church part either! It feels kind of weird and normally I love meeting people.
Great list, I may have to "borrow". And now I think I have to go bake something because I have the smell of banana bread in my brain.

I´m glad you "stole" this from me. Very interesting and funny. I agree with a lot of these, especially the "greet your neighbor at church" one. Why is it that almost everyone here feels that way and we still have to do it at church?? Don´t they get it?!
You dream of being naked in public? Is that a nightmare then?

How cute. I loved this one. That took a lot of work to write through all of that and it was really interesting. I just love getting a little glimps of people through meme's. I am so a "people person", thanks for sharing!
