Things you didn't know

Good morning, all! I stole this one from my sister Lisa. I like these kind of posts! Hope you all have a great weekend. I actually get a weekend finally, so I'm a very happy camper!

I am rather pithy at times.
I think often about the future.
I know life is full of endless blessings.
I have lots of painting to do, even though I've done hours of painting already..... The projects never end when buying a new home!
I wish crystal balls were real - and they could tell me if my decisions would be failures or successes.
I hate disappointing people.
I miss my family.
I fear that someday the US will be a 3rd world country.
I hear birds singing outside.
I smell coffee.
I crave a day out on the lake.
I search for a place to get my hair done. It's been 2 years since I've been in a hair salon.
I wonder what I will be doing 10 years from now.
I regret not paying attention to the "formal meetings" when I was in a sorority in college. I went to my 1st "real" meeting Thursday, and that was all I could think about when people were seconding motions, etc.....
I love trail running.
I ache in my upper back and shoulders from lifting yesterday. My upper back is also bruised from my deep tissue massage on Thursday.
I am not a "people person" as much as some think I am. Sometimes I just want to have silence. I love the quiet (at times).
I believe in God.
I dance in my kitchen while I'm cooking.
I sing Stevie Nicks while I'm cleaning house. I will never sound like Stevie Nicks. Who the hell am I fooling.
I cry rarely. And don't cry about real issues. I wait for frustration and stress to build up -- and will find myself crying because I can't open the pickle jar.
I fight not enough. I'm really good at turning my head and pretending things don't phase me. 
I win Scrabble against my husband when he's distracted by a football game or the history channel.
I lose Scrabble against my husband when he's actually paying attention.
I never EVER will eat a "Sonoran Dog". If you haven't heard of this - it's like "The thing" to eat in SW AZ. It's a deep fried hot dog served with chili, jalepenos, cheese, salsa, etc. I will never try this. Ever.
I always feel better once I've worked out, ran, or gone hiking.
I confuse my score in golf because I have to hit the ball so many times. I can hit straight, but not far.
I listen to the world around me. Never get caught up and forget to listen to the birds, and the wind.
I can usually be found at work, on a running trail, or in my kitchen baking or cooking.
I am scared of mice, cockroaches, scorpions, the dark, and gas stoves & grills..
I need for time to slooooowwww down.
I am happy about the way life is right now.
I imagine all the time. I'm quite the day dreamer.

Ooo, deep tissue massages are painful. i had one last fall and I did NOT like it. I know they are good for you as they work out your kinks/knots. But i prefer the relaxing ones that aren't painful/don't leave you bruised!!! :P I am a wimp!

Good luck w/ all the painting. I am not envious! And I am glad you are starting to get more time off for yourself! That's important or you will burn out!

Love this post! And you are so right - "Life is full of endless blessings"! We just have to be aware of them and thank God for them! The birds singing is one of life's blessins, isn't it? Also, the smell of a new born baby - there is nothing to compare to that! Keep dancing in the kitchen!
