    December 29, 2007

    MotherPie asked me what I was still doing around here. So here goes:

    Still amazed: at the miracle that is my little boy, how delightful and funny and bright he is, that God saw fit to make ME?! his mother.

    Still getting used to: a post mid-40s face (and backside)

    Still loving: my iPod

    Still proud of:  graduating summa cum laude with a degree in art and theater which I completed at 38.7-years-old proving that endurance trumps brains.

    Still not proud of: past relationships left in need of repair.

    Still hoping: to go back and complete a masters degree, to get published, to lose 7 pounds.

    Still worried: about the condition of humanity, the cultural direction of our country.

    Still never going to: wear mom jeans or a t-shirt with Sean’s picture on the front, still never going to have a tattoo.

    Still pretending: that I’ll get in great shape again.

    Still reading: Your blog!

    Still wanting to read: a real book, from front to end, in one sitting without interruption.

    Still interested in: studio arts and interior design

    Still not interested in: Britney Spears or anyone living in Hollywood

    Still looking forward to: hiking in Yosemite with Antique Daddy and Sean.

    Still not looking forward to: my yearly colonoscopy.

    Still failing: to work up any interest in our family finances…..zzzzzzz

    Still grateful for: every single day of life.

    Still praying: to get to see my little boy grow up and be happily married with a family of his own.

    Still not believing in: diets of any kind.

    Still believing in: Jesus

    What are YOU still doing?

      Still wandering around reading blogs this morning when I should be doing a bizillion other things in the house. But there are times when it is so worth it.

      Well, I completed my master’s at 50 and loved school now much more than I did at undergraduate level. So be inspired to go for that master’s. A mini is the Mini Cooper auto. As soon as I could sling off that family car, that is what I sunk into.

      I, too, am still amazed at the miracle of my wee/big ones.

      Still reading you, still. Cheers.

      Sadly, no matter how much I don’t believe in diets, it’s looking like I’m going to have to at least FAKE it, come January.
      Bah.

      Still enjoying checking your blog to see the wonderful ways you’ve strung words together today. Even if it is a re-run. If it’s a good show or book, I don’t mind seeing it/reading it more than once. 🙂

      I love how you ended your list with Jesus…and the be still and know that I am God.

      So, no tattoo OF Sean? Have you seen those?! I saw a huge body builder looking guy with a tattoo of his infant son on his arm. Glad he loves his son, but not for me thanks!

      Still wishing I didn’t love chocolate so much is all I can come up with as I eat yet another Lindt truffle.

      Happy New Year!

      AM,
      You’ve got to check out my blog and see what I woke up to this morning. When I saw it, I wished that YOU had woken up to it because you would have such a great story to tell.
      I did my best, but would have loved to hear what you could have said about it!
      🙂

      Happy New Year!!

      Still saying: I hope to be a lot like you when I grow up. “Still getting used to: a post mid-40s face (and backside)” Girl, I can only HOPE to look as good as you in the not to distant future.

      Love this list, AM. It made me smile a time or 20.

      This is a great list! I went ahead and posted a “still” list on my blog too.

      Still loving good quotes on my walls.

      Still loving the flavor of chocolate and mint together.

      Still not eating beets or organ meats.

      Still grossed out by even saying organ meats.

      Still wanting to make use of the jogging stroller I just got from my sister-in-law, and maybe even run a race or 2 before the year’s out.

      Still loving your blog and your way with words. You’re so funny you could be published.
