What I just REALIZED...

This looked like one of those fun survey type things that I kept seeing on some of my friends blogs. It wasn't until I read Lee's that I *realized* how serious it could be. I mean, if you're really honest. SO. I am going to own my answers. You might read it and not even *realize* what the big deal is, but for me, goes.

1. I've come to realize my boobs are...needing to be hiked up and reeled in...big time.

2. I've come to realize my complicated. I am not just a stay at home mom, teacher, or pastor's wife (yes, that is a job. Phew!), my job description is not written. It is sometimes stressfull, thankless, and tiring. I also have come to realize that I wouldn't change any of it.
3. I've come to realize that when I'm driving...I can no longer catch up on my phone calls. The hands-free law has been enforced here in California. One day I will have to get a blue tooth. Hubby HAD one until it fell off of his ear while he was working and he ran over it. Ugh.

4. I've come to realize that I not stress and obsess over every little thing that I can't make "perfect". Things happen and sometimes you just can't do anything about it. Just relax...

5. I've come to realize that I have lost...the anger that I've held towards some people for the last TWO years, the body I once had, and the need to be the perfect mom, wife, teacher, friend, daughter...I am what I am.

6. I've come to realize that I hate it when...people lie, people try too hard, someone misunderstands me, or judges me too hastily.
7. I've come to realize that if I'm drunk...someone else has taken over my body. LOL

8. I've come to realize that something that I will never have in excess.
9. I've come to realize that certain people...will love you and believe in you no matter what. Others will judge you and mistreat you no matter what. Be yourself.

10. I've come to realize that I'll always be...the one that laughs until she cries, the one that is too forgiving (is that possible or does that mean I am a sucker?), the one that follows the rules even if she wants to break them...

12. I've come to realize that my mom...will never change. Her way is not always my way, but I have to understand that I am an adult now and I do not have to agree. I also am a mother now and realize why she was always so strict and sometimes even harsh. It's not easy being a mom.
13. I've come to realize my cell not as important as I think it is. It is okay to leave the house without it or turn it off for a while. That's what voice mail is for.

14. I've come to realize that when I woke up this morning...I thought I was going to get my hair done, but it had to be cancelled, I remembered that I have a ton of bills to figure out, and that it is trash day and I need to make sure it's out front.

15. I've come to realize that last night before I went to sleep...I was exhausted and sore and fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow.

16. I've come to realize that right now I am thinking I am going to deal with the finances. Ugh.
17. I've come to realize that my one of the hardest working men I've ever known. He may be hard and rugged on the exterior, but he has a heart of gold. He is way too forgiving and patient beyond understanding.

18. I've come to realize that when I get on the computer...I can not wait to read my favorite blogs, make my play on Scrabulous, look for personal email (not spam), and catch up with friends.

19. I've come to realize that a fresh start to a new week.

20. I've come to realize that tonight...will be a guess as to what I am going to do, but as long as I'm with my family, I am happy.

21. I've come to realize that tomorrow I will...hopefully get my hair done. *fingers crossed*
22. I've come to realize that I really want to...lose weight, get healthy, get organized, catch up on my scrapbooks and projects, go to the beach...

23.I've come to realize that the person who is most likely to repost is... I have no idea.
24. I've come to realize that what you make it...wait is that a Hannah Montana song?? Well, at any rate, it is. We can not live our life to please others. We must be honest with ourselves, with God, with those in our lives. It is too short to try to be anything/anyone else.
25. I've come to realize that this weekend...was wonderful. We spent Saturday at the San Diego Zoo. It was a perfect day.
26. I've realized the best music to listen to when I am upset...needs to be soulful. It can't be too crazy or upbeat, because I need to unwind or simmer down. I need to think.

27. I've come to realize that friends...come in all sizes, shapes and colors.

28. I've come to realize that this year…was not easy, but I have learned a lot. I've grown in many ways (some that I did not care for, ehem.). I've learned who my real friends are. I've learned that people are not always honest, that they some times (a lot of times) don't think for themselves and that family comes first. Always.

Alas, #11 is missing. I could make it up, but I thought I'd wait to see what it was in the first place...anyone know? LOL

I love this!!!! I did this a while back, too, and I LOVE to read other people's answers. It's so informative, I think.

I already knew it, but this shows how dedicated you are to your family, and that's just awesome. And I love your attitude - I am what I am. I'm glad you are, because we like you that way!

Great answers! I love reading other people's answers to things like this. I especially like how all your answers have a positive spin even when they're about things that aren't so positive. Well done!
I made up my own #11. I didn't even think to google it at the time but now I'm going to have to.
