I live: in the sweetest little town on earth, Sugar Grove, PA.
I work: as a freelance court reporter, and sometimes not enough in the things that matter.
I smell: my Diet Coke as the cup leaves my mouth.
I listen: to the Family Life Network and instrumental music when I'm driving, and it's something my granddaughter is constantly telling me to do.
I hide: how much I really care about people sometimes.
I walk: around in my house, lol, and hopefully soon on a treadmill.
I write: not as much as I used to, mainly type everything.
I see: my computer screen and my puppy laying at my feet on a pillow.
I sing: whenever I get a chance, in worship, in the car, used to sing bass with Sweet Adelines.
I can: get this list done and get back to work as soon as possible.
I watch: less and less TV every year, yippee!
I daydream: of what my daughter will look like and when I'll finally get to hold her.
I want: to be in China by the end of the year.
I cry: more than I used to, what's up with that? and when I read adoption stories, and hear songs that get you right there.
I read: just about everything I can get my hands on, Internet blogs, magazines, novels, etc.
I love: Jesus, my husband, my daughter, my granddaughter, my mom and dad, my brothers and their families, my Christian family, friends, the list goes on and on and on, oh, and I love Diet Coke.
I rode: in my car yesterday to watch my neice's softball game that got rained out.
I sometimes: just wanna scream.
I fear: that God is going to someday take me down a road I don't wanna go.
I hope: this country somehow gets turned around and back to its Christian roots.
I eat: way too much and need to stop it!
I drink: about four large glasses of Diet Coke a day with lots of ice.
I play: cards as much as I can with my hubby and mom and friends Scott and Cathy, and Dora The Explorer match game with my granddaughter.
I miss: my granddaughter when she's gone.
I forgive: as soon as I see the person the next time.
I drive: a lot, and some say too fast, but I just like to get where I'm going.
I lost: my mind a couple years ago and I'm struggling to get it back,
I dream: about once a week and they're doozies, usually about someone I love getting attacked by bears. Weird; huh?
I kiss: my husband and my daughter at least once a day, and my granddaughter..well, that's just a free for all.
I hug: my family a lot, not as much as I should, and others usually only when they approach me for one.
I have: not taken a shower yet today or eaten yet.
I remember: names, places, facts in general, but try to remember to stop and pick up a gallon of milk, nope, it's not there.
I don't: like cabbage, corned beef, celery, Spanich rice, stuffed peppers, mean people, interruptions.
I believe: in the Creator of the Universe, and in the Bible, the whole Bible, and nothing but the Bible so help me God.
I owe: a lot to my mom and dad.
I know: any value I have is because God loves me and Jesus died for me.
I hate: the teaching of non-scriptural doctrine.
I wish: our adoption agency would call today and tell us our daughter is waiting for us to come get her.
I wear: whatever fits and is appropriate.
Maybe I should: hurry up and finish this post and get back to work.
People would say that I'm: opinionated, loud, someone with high standards, what you see is what you get, decent, funny.
I don't understand: a lot of things God allows to go on in this world, but I trust that He is in absolute control of everything.
Life is full of: stuff! Stuff I like and stuff I don't like. Gifts, blessings, surprises, opportunities. Sin, pain, being patient when I don't want to, garbage, junk.
My past is: mine and no one else's business.
I get annoyed when: people feel they're entitled to what is mine when I would probably give it to them if they asked, and people who take, take, take.
Parties are: a great way to see people you haven't seen in a while, like birthday parties, anniversary parties, retirement parties.
Tomorrow: is Saturday, May 2nd, and I don't have anything planned yet.
Never in my life have I: been happier than I am now.
When I was younger, I: never could've imagined what my life would be like now.
When I'm nervous: I bite my fingernails, and when I really get upset and nervous, I get these horrible stomach cramps.
When I was 5: we lived in a little trailer in Burgettstown, PA, and I shared bunk beds with my younger brother Jeff.
My life is not complete without: my family and friends.
If you visit my hometown: don't blink, but take the Y to the left for 2 miles and stop by our farm and say hello.
The world could do without: abused and abandoned children, liberal judges and politicians.
If I ever go back to school: I'll attend another Christian college and study history.
