Want To Know Wednesday


1. What is the best advice someone has ever given you?
This is a tough one.  I've had so many people give me such great advice over the years.  The advice that comes to my mind is some that my FIL gave me just recently.  He told me when there is conflict it's OK to agree to disagree and the move on with your life.  I LOVE that advice.  Honestly I never thought that it's ok to agree to disagree.  But sometimes in life there is no other option.   
2. What is your greatest accomplishment?
My family.  The hubs and I have been married 13 years.  It's been really tough sometimes to make it work, you know?  But we are happy and in love.  I also think that being a mom is another great accomplishment.  My kids KNOW I love them and we have FUN together!  They know they can tell me anything and that I'll listen.  It's something I've worked really hard at. 
3. Who do you admire?
I really admire people who have worked through some of the toughest things life can throw at them yet they remain positive.  We all have a choice when bad things happen to us.  I've seen people hold major grudges and I've seen people who just let it roll of their backs.  I am trying to be like that.  It's hard.
4. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
My weight.  Over the years I used food as my comfort!  I don't do that anymore but here I am carrying the pain, depression and the conflicts around.  I wish I could just snap my fingers and it would all melt off.  I know that's not the case.  But I have a good friend who told me about this new eating plan she came up with.  We are doing it together and I'm soooo happy to have someone to do this with!
5. How do you want to be remembered?
Hmmmm...this is hard.  I want to be remembered for having fun!  I want my kids to remember their crazy mom who played with them in the rain and who sang at the top of her lungs in the kitchen with a mixing spoon.  I want the hubs to remember that some of the best date nights were the ones where we grabbed salads and ate at the park or painted pottery.  I want others to remember me for being willing to help at anytime!  I really am the type that would do anything for anybody.  

Thanks Mamarazzi!

I want my kids to have good memories of me when they grow up. That's what hubs and I are doing right now, trying to build good, fun memories.

Totally love your thoughts today. Sounds to me like your kids and your hubs will all have wonderful memories!!

That exactly what I need... a friend to diet with. Not Roy... he will drop 15 pounds the first week and I only drop 1! Very frustrating!!
