i am...

I found this idea on Hip to Code, a delightful new blog I am trying.  I am feeling self-indulgent today, and you know I can't pass up a quiz, so humor me.  :)

i am . . .

i am: ready for lunch and for my co-worker to go home for the day.
i think: i will ask mom to teach me to use my sewing machine.
i know: who i am much better than i did ten years ago.
i want: a calm life with strong relationships, creativity, and laughter.
i have: always loved the smell of lavender.
i wish: i didn't have to work for a living.
i hate: working with crazy, mean people.
i miss: working at P&G. and liking my job.
i fear: losing my job.
i feel: good about having a loving relationship with my mom.
i hear: the ocean when Red talks about going to Barbados.
i smell: good, thank you very much!  ;)
i crave: babies, cooking, chocolate, and time to myself.
i search: for meaning.  Scott says I have to find it within, but how?
i wonder: why no one stops Bush from ruining the country?
i regret: ever starting admin office work.  Shoulda gone to art school.
i love: my poochie, Tip.  We snuggle every morning.
i ache: for my extended family - they're too far away.
i care: what my nieces think of me.
i always: am surprised by Scott...always.
i am not: one of those smug, straight married people.  it's perfectly valid to be single, or not want kids, or be gay, or whatever fits with your heart.  i've lived several lifetimes already and been on both sides of many fences.  it's a long life.
i believe: people can experience healing and love, at any stage of life.
i dance: around the living room and with the dog.
i sing: without realizing i'm doing it.
i cry: whenever my heart feels too full - of any emotion.
i don’t always: use the laundry room as my second closet...but i often do (to the annoyance of my husband).
i fight: with my own angst.  and with the TV.
i write: honestly.
i win: the affections of parents, usually.
i lose: one earring from each pair of favorites.  grrr.
i never: know how to respond when people are mean to me.
i confuse: loyalty and love with obligation and guilt.
i listen: to Marie's playlist while blogging late at night.
i can usually be found: in front of a computer, steering wheel or TV.
i am scared: i will never find work that i love.
i need: money.  a lot of it.
i am happy about: finding a good baby doctor.  yay!!!

Now your turn.  :)
