I hate:
  • when I yell at Punkin
  • that I feel like sometimes the only way Punkin hears me is if I yell
  • that when I make dinner (which is a rarity) I expect applause and cheers and a parade thrown in my honor
  • when I make dinner (which is a rarity) but it doesn't turn out how I hoped
  • that I'm disorganized and can't seem to hold on to the motivation to do much about it
  • that middle school doesn't feel so far away some days when I wonder if people like me
  • that this list has become self-indulgent and whiny

I love:

  • that I'm married to the most wonderful man in the world
  • that Punkin loves to talk and ask questions (even if it is "why?" every 3 seconds)
  • Punkin's toes. Seriously, they're the only toes I've ever not thought were completely and utterly disgusting
  • that my relationships with my brothers have grown as we've all gotten older
  • that I'm actually looking forward to the day my parents move to the same town as me
  • that I've been blessed by the friendships of great women from my moms group
  • that God is faithful and loves me unconditionally
  • that this list makes the first list seem so small

What about you? What makes your lists?

I hate that I use the word "hate" way too often - trying to rid it from my vocab!

I LOVE how my son rubs his hands on my face and says, "hands are for loooooooooooooove." :)
