Photo Of The Day 9/22/2008

The father of my children will lift them to his shoulders so they can see the mountains and touch the sky. Without knowing it he will show them what it feels like to fly.

Sweet Indulgence
Never tasted so good

I see Me

I would choose a quiet room by myself over a room of people, strangers or not.
I will listen to any type of music as long as it makes sense to my soul.

I have a hard time laughing at myself but if encouraged I will eventually see the humor others see.
I love photography but the main thing I would enjoy photographing, people, is deterred by my social anxiety issues.
I don't have difficulty in voicing my opinion but I have a hard time receiving constructive criticism.
I am stubborn, enough said.
I am impatient.
I love animals and have been at a loss ever since we became a pet-free home in 2007.
I am proud of the strength I have discovered I have.
Some of my beliefs are unfounded but that doesn't change my mind.
If I'm bored I get angry. If I am busy I get overwhelmed. It's hard for me to find a happy medium.
I take things personally even if I say I don't.
If something goes wrong I think it's because of something I did or didn't do.
I struggle with trying to understand other peoples actions.
I assume responsibility when I shouldn't.
I am working on not having expectations.
I will be 31 on November 14th, 2008, that is totally crazy.
I love my husband but am in love with two other boys....they call me Mom.
I think I intimidate people by my bluntness but I am just being honest, life is to short to refrain. Trust me, I do hold back...a lot.
I am always trying.
I become indifferent if the work doesn't equal the goal.
My lists and planning keep me sane, OCD perhaps....just a touch.
I don't know how to initiate conversation.
I like my dimples but not my freckles.
I enjoy memoirs.
I wish I could fly.

A Beginning.....

I need something for myself.
At least that's what I've been reading in the parenting books and magazines that fill my mailbox and clutter my dining room table.
In order to not lose myself, my identity as "Kerri", I must find something to do that resembles my interests before my husband and two sons became my main focus.
I need to find a little bit of myself again.

So, I'm giving this a shot. It'll be tricky, especially at the current time because I do feel like I'm being pulled in so many different directions.
I need to make time for that I can feel like "Kerri" for just a few minutes each day. Because I know that in doing so, I will enjoy being a wife and a Mommy that much more.
