A fun post...

My friend Emily did this on her blog the other day, and I thought I would give it a shot. You should try it - and if you blog it, please let me know so I can read it!

Ten Things I Wish I Could Say to Ten Different People Right Now:

1. "Please be careful. I still need you more than you know."
2. "Thank you. I can only hope that you know how lucky we are to have you."
3. "You inspire me. Someday let's meet."
4. "Thank you for loving them."
5. "I'm here. A long way away, but I'm here. And someday you might know what that means."
6. "Thanks for always being on my side."
7. "NO biting!"
8. "I miss you. I wish you were here."
9. "I'm so sorry. This stinks. You don't deserve it and it isn't fair."
10. "You are not alone. You don't have to be so strong. Lean on us."

Nine Things About Myself:
1. My feet are my favorite body part.
2. Sometimes I would rather be on the computer than playing with the boys.
3. I often only shave below my knees.
4. When I have a tough day ahead, I wear a necklace that was one of my Grandmother's diamonds. It makes me feel like she is there, and gives me strength.
5. I adore the Chicago Bears, and have been counting down to the beginning of basketball season.
6. I am often too lazy to do the creative things that I want to do, surfing the web instead.
7. If I could, I would wear a hoodie every day.
8. I can't live without TIVO.
9. I want to move, just to be forced to clean everything out!

Eight Ways to Win My Heart:
1. Rub my shoulders.
2. Support my crazy fixations with cloth diapers and baby wearing.
3. Praise the virtues of Walter Payton, Buck Williams or Rasheed Wallace
4. Play Jimmy Buffet's "Little Miss Magic"
5. Chocolate
6. Be honest. Tactful, but honest.
7. Surprise kindnesses
8. Love my boys

Seven Things That Cross My Mind a Lot:
1. How can someone still be undecided?
2. Why can't there be more hours in the day?
3. Thank goodness for half-time!
4. They are the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
5. I'm so glad we got the red couch. (Yes, I still feel that way after 6 years!)
6. It's all going too fast.
7. I'm not done yet.

Six Things I Do Before I Fall Asleep:
1. Turn off the computer
2. Drink two glasses of water
3. Brush my teeth
4. Take out my contacts
5. Read
6. Nurse Luke and watch him sleep

Five People Who Mean a Lot:
1. Max
2. Luke
3. Dan
4. Mom and Dad
5. Erin

agh! only 5?

Four Things I'm Wearing Right Now:
1. Nursing tank top
2. Penguin pajama bottoms
3. Wedding ring
4. Two toe rings

Three Songs I Listen to a Lot: [at the moment]
1. "Grand Canyon" Ani DiFranco
2. "Little Liza Jane" Elizabeth Mitchell
3. "Banana Pancakes" Jack Johnson

Two Things I Want to Do Before I Die:
1. Fight my own laziness to pursue those things which I am passionate about.
2. Raise good people. Inspire them to make our world more kind.

One Confession:
Sometimes my motivation to go out and do something is so that I have something to write about here!
