another wee bit Wednesday & #14.

{one} what profession have you always admired?

I can’t pick just one - Soldiers, nurses, police offices, firefighters, teachers, there are so many!

{two} what would the title of your memoir/biography be if it was written today?

oh dear, probably something like “Let God Lead” – I guess it would be a story of struggling with what I thought my life would be like and surrendering to the life God has planned for me

{three} how far do you commute to work?

it’s about 10 miles/17 minutes each way – not bad at all!

{four} are your earlobes attached or detached?


{five} do you eat the unpopped kernels of popcorn at the bottom of the bag?

yuck, no thanks.

{six} what is the strangest gift you’ve ever received?

my parents gave me money one year for Christmas in a shot gun shell box.  The money was nice but tearing off the wrapping paper to discover a shot gun shell box at 7 years old was definitely strange!

{seven} what is one tv show that you wish hadn’t been cancelled?

ER & Crossing Jordan

{eight} what is something that you are saving money for right now?

our beach vacation in July

{nine} what hobby would you like to take up?

well I would definitely like to grow my photography hobby.. I feel like I’ve lost my ‘touch’ over the past couple of years and it’s very very frustrating. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if my D-SLR actually worked.  =(

I’d also LOVE to learn how to sew.  I’d love to be able to go to the craft store, pick out a beautiful fabric and make something fun with it =)  [Maybe one day when my kiddos are older!]

{ten} how many times a year do you get really dressed up?

well, I dress fairly nice for work most of the time but if we’re talking ‘Prom dressy’ then never!

truth #14: This one is tough to admit.. I have a major jealousy issue and I’m not proud of it.  I am jealous of people’s relationships, cars, houses, money, jobs, physical appearances, artistic abilities, creativity, will power, intelligence, pretty much everything.  It’s terrible, embarrassing and such a waste.  I feel like I go through seasons when I don’t allow it to bother me too much then there are seasons when all I want is what other people have.  I’ve been praying a lot about this and have been trying to rid my life of this evil for good.

“A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” – Proverbs 14:30

I'm right there with you on the jealousy thing. It's one reason that I decided to stop using Facebook. I found that it was making me jealous of what it "seemed like" other people had that I didn't. I was comparing myself to others based on only the things that they made public knowledge.
