Save $$ (especially on scrapbooking; I know, boring, huh?) and Purge !! (continue purging junk in the house...I've done some this year, but want to do even more this year - I feel a simpler life coming on!!)
Yep, that's me...finicky. I am real picky about things. My husband was filling my dinner plate on Christmas Day, and I was like, "Wait, don't let them touch!" He couldn't believe that I didn't want the different foods to touch. I like my cokes to be fountain cokes, with just the right amount of ice. I like 3 cookies for dessert. I like my hair cut a certain way. I like my closet with long sleeve/winter things on the left and summer things on the right. I have a particular way of getting ready in the mornings, where the hair is done last. And the list goes on...Yes, I am a finicky person & I have learned to work with it!!
I really struggled with E - I mean really, what is there with the letter E that will describe me? So after a lot of thought, I came up with "everyday", as in plain, simple, everyday me. I try to be me, ever-changing (Oh, an "E" word!) as it is, but to stay true to who I am. Nothing great, spectacular, overwhelming, extraordinary (OK - there's another "E" word!!), or showy, just me...Sometimes predictable, sometimes unpredictable. I'm not always in love with the everyday me, but I am comfortable with the everyday me, and I think that is more important. Although, I do love to challenge that everyday me, and test the waters on where those boundaries are written. Mmm, I think I will stick with me.
OK, I was going to go with D = Depressed, but that was well...depressing! Sometimes I do suffer from depression, and this summer - well, I think I went through about 3 or 4 months of it. Well, again I determined that I did NOT want to continue with life like that, and made some changes, and now I think I am out of it. I think it is determination which helps me stay a driven person (another "D" word! - driven...). I am determined to make the most of life, even when life itself is not what is driving me. Does that make sense?
Originally from Florida, I miss the palm trees. Now I call southern Indiana my home. My husband and I have been married for 15 years, and we have a beautiful 12-year old daughter. God, family & the arts are my passions. That is it...in a nutshell!
