I’ve had more than a few people ask me more about myself. So, at the risk of boring quite a few of you here’s some things that you might find interesting – or not!
Things I Like:
♦ Books – Currently reading, The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, by Shaffer & Barrows. I love to read and recently starting writing down all the books I have read in the past year.
♦ Kids – This is probably pretty obvious since I have seven of my own. I’d have eight, or even twenty, but at my age, it is unlikely we will be blessed with anymore.
♦ Dogs – We have a great Sheltie named Tucker, who comes when he is called – unless he has something better to do.
♦ Talk Radio – I’ll admit to being a conservative, so I enjoy listening to American Family Radio, but also listen to a lot of National Public Radio, for a well rounded viewpoint
♦ My husband – What can I say? I do like him, and am glad to be married to my best friend, even after 22 years.
♦ Music – Here’s a picture of my oldest daughter and I playing at her Senior Recital
♦ Not Being Fat – You knew I had to put that in here didn’t you? I do like being a healthy weight, and not shopping in Plus Size Departments.
♦ Cooking – I do enjoy cooking all kinds of food, and with a big family I’ve learned to make pretty cute birthday cakes!
What I Don’t Like:
♦ Bathing Suits – It’s summer, so it came into my mind first thing. I still hate wearing a bathing suit, and with my personality, probably would hate wearing one even if I hadn’t lost all the weight.
♦ Obnoxious People – I like a good debate as much as the next person, but people that argue without listening to the other side drive me crazy.
♦ Cold Weather – Ever since I lost weight the difference in how I perceive temperature is amazing. Whereas John and I both used to love the house and car to be ice cold, now we battle over where the thermost should be set. He usually wins, because as he puts it, “You live in a fleece anyway!”
♦ Racism, Inequality, Big Government – These are pretty self explanatory I think.
♦ Dirty Kitchens – Ever since I was hospitalized with Ecoli many years ago from eating a hamburger at a fast food chain, cleanliness during food prep is really important. It bothers me when I visit people and see them not taking proper precautions with meat and veggie prep.
♦ Big, Scary Dogs – I like dogs, but don’t like it when the big, huge, fericous dog comes bounding out of nowhere barking and baring its teeth!
♦ Excuses – Don’t give me excuses and pass them off as reasons. Most reasons we use for not getting something accomplished are actually excuses in disguise.
Well, if you’ve read to the end of this little exercise I commend you. Have no fear though, I already have a post about weight loss all lined up for next time. Take care, and let me know some of your likes and dislikes. Diane
