LOL - funny you write this... We are in the steps of adoption and we had to put a photobook together... I realized that all the pictures were of Zeva (DD)... It was supposed to be mainly about DH and myself... Funny, I think of us as her, not us as individuals... So here goes...
I am sometimes a control-freak, a great cook, a good listener, a loud mouth, a spontaneous person, compassionate, talkative, an 8+ hour sleeper, a dog person, a shoe-aholic, sometimes lazy... what else? lol
I am a loyal friend, a comedian, a good cook, an optimist, a violinist, an artist, a scrapbooker, a photographer, a traveler, a tennis player, a scientist at heart, a person who is very detail orientated and an OCD clean freak.
I am a singer, good cook, perfectionist, thoughtful, spontaneous, nature lover, animal lover (to the max, especially cats). I think sleep is a waste of time and wish I didn't have to do it. I get restless easy if I'm understimulated. I love to have fun and LOVE family events. I believe in karma. Music is an absolute must in my life. I'm a control freak also. If everyone in my house had the same expectations for themselves as I do for my own self, it would be ideal (LOL)! I pay my bills on time and am anal about being responsible and doing the right thing. My feelings get hurt easily but many times I hold that in. I'm insecure about my body, but trying to learn to accept me for who I am. That is the hardest thing I've ever tried to do! Oh, I'm sometimes lazy too. I love sitting around in my sweats watching movies with my loved ones! Food is my #1 enemy. If I could figure out how to be able to eat whatever, whenever, I WOULD. (:
This is a great post! It made me think. :) I think I'm still "coming into myself" but here's who I was:
Traveler, avid reader, animal (mostly dog) lover, laid back (read:lazy), but some what outgoing (likes to learn & try new things/places), summer person, bargain hunter, lots of sleep needer, aspiring writer, salsa dancing, freedom loving geek :)
I am: a soprts fan, avid reader, cross stitcher, dog lover, good cook, insecure about my body too, a devoted christian, family girl, motorcycle rider (passanger of course:), fisherwoman, and most of all a MOM. LOL
I am stubborn, nature lover (camping and cottaging is my all time favorite thing to do) animal lover, emotional, sarcastic, loyal companion, family is important to me, journal keeper, music is a must, easy going, hard worker, ............. gee it sure makes you think!
I am an animal activist, a native american, a hockey fan, an auntie, an x-files guru, a traveler, a volunteer, a devoted Christian, a vegetarian, an environmentalist, an OC neat freak, a reader, a chef, and a loyal friend
I am a Christian, a devoted and loyal friend, extremely clumsy (I can trip and fall while standing still), goofy, a major animal lover, an owner of multiple species of pets, horse-crazy and a horseback rider (English hunter-jumper preference), outdoorsy and a nature-lover, adventurous yet somehow with a fear of taking risks, a tomboy, a taekwondo martial artist, very family oriented, frugal, a dedicated employee, a writer, a literary geek, a perfectionist, a news junkie, extroverted and able to make friends with almost anybody, compassionate, patient, non-confrontational and easy-going (most of the time), a college graduate, a homeowner, optimistic, and insecure about my body as well.

I like the raft better though, picture fanatic LOL my husband tells me I have tooo many pictures, love to text message on my phone, love to travel, and I am a football and baseball fan!
This was fun... made me think about all the things I love to do in my life and things I enjoy! I am sure there is soo much more but I have to get ready for bed! LOL! thanks for posting this!
Great post. Hits a nerve. The second my son "came out" I thought: this is the end of me, and the beginning of him. And it is exciting that way. But I never imagined I would have 360 bad hair days per year and hardly ever read a newspaper anymore.
Deep down, the explorer, the photographer, the technical solution enthusiast, the focused person, the skater and the short story writer, the silly person rolling on the floor in laughter, the workaholic - the real me, is still there but facetted with all the "responsible" behavior a parent needs to provide. There is no way to restore the old life but an exciting path ahead to mix the old and new. A toast to every parent who has lost and found themselves along the way!
wow, its hard to remember who i am besides a mother. i am a poet, artist, great dancer :), a loyal friend, a family person, a very giving person, a christian, good lover :)
i have a great humor and am normally very clowney, very responsible and loving. i dotn have patience though. lol. this is a fun post. thank you for posting it. its hard to remember what i used to like and what i used to do. right now, i am just 3weeks from popping! too pregnant to be any of the above. God bless you all.
I REALLY LOVED reading about you guys. And Deanne, I agree---the BEST thing I am is Mommy, and I wasn't trying to diminish it at all, just wanting to point out that we are all unique individuals with talents and desires that get lost sometimes.
The reason why I posted this, is I walked past my piano which I havent played for MONTHS, and actually said to myself, "Oh Ya!! I play the piano! Pretty dang good too!!!!" I actually kinda forgot!!
And I realized that its easy to forget who I AM. Besides Mommy. Which is obviously VERY important and wonderful.....but its just nice to remember ME too. :)
