Stolen off another blog, to which I am too tired to link - but doubt that the owner would mind.;-)
I AM: Excited, Overwhelmed, Anxious, and Grateful - for the impending arrival of my baby.
I WANT: To be healthy and fit forever.
I WISH: I could lose weight by eating chocolate like it was going out of style.
I HATE: Arame. And Kimchi. Both of which were in a macrobiotic rice bowl I ate this weekend, and the whole thing made me want to hurl. I did finish the meal off with a raw vegan chocolate fudge square, which made up for things.
I MISS: Cosmopolitan martinis. Oh god do I miss them. I thought about pouring myself some cranberry cocktail in a martini glass the other night. But the thought of a pregnant lady with a martini glass made me laugh. Perhaps I should have done it anyway.
I WONDER: whether my baby will look like me or my husband. Well he/she inherit his laugh? His smile? Since I could look into my husband's eyes forever, I would love for the baby to look like him.
I REGRET: Gaining back all the weight I'd lost before I got married. Oh well - at least that's one regret I can change now. Some of them, can't be reversed that easily. In fact, some of them can't be reversed.:-(
I AM NOT: Prepared for motherhood. Seeing as I like to prepare for everything else in my life, this one is a toughie. But I think that'll be half the fun!
I DANCE: To almost anything when I'm happy. With or without music. Whenever, and wherever. There's a lot of joy in shaking my arms and swaying my hips, and singing along to a good song.
I SING: when I'm at home alone, blasting my music. Or when I've had one too many at the pub.
I CRY: During cheesy movies and commercials. Or when I go travelling to developing countries, and I see little children begging for money. It breaks my heart.
I AM NOT ALWAYS: patient. I like things to happen right away - like, just because I want them to! Especially when I'm hungry. I gots NO patience.
I MAKE WITH MY HANDS: Cookies and Brownies, recently. Baking is incredibly fun.
I WRITE: Far too many work e-mails. I'd much prefer to write here, or in a diary. I miss writing snail-mail letters to pen-pals. That was fun.
I CONFUSE: Pavarotti (the singer), with Panzerotti (the pizza pocket) all the time. It makes my husband laugh so hard - and it always takes me a moment or two to realize I've messed up.
I NEED: a break from work. A long, relaxing break. So that I can do yoga, and read, and bake all day. Sigh.
I SHOULD: Print off all my travel pictures. Organize my closet. Fold the laundry that's piling up. Ignore all that crap, and keep blogging!
I START: worrying when I have nothing to really worry about. Yep, it's true.
I FINISH: my day off with a nice cuppa chamomile tea, and a deep sigh of relief.
