Loves and Hates

I was tagged by Michelle, Elliot's mommy:

Things I Love:

I love being a stay at home mom...this is the first year in 24 years that I have not had a job, other than taking care of my babies, family, and home.

I love being a mother of 4. (and to think I was going to stop at 2)

I love math and miss teaching.

I love cold, chilly weather...days like this, the kids climb in bed with me and we snuggle.

I love my wind down time at the end of the day.

I love to cook.

I love to sew, but don't have much time with two little ones under foot.

I love selling on ebay. and buying, too (got a bumbo, in perfect condition for $24. that included shipping!)

I love scrapbooking, even though I am new at it. Hobby Lobby has wonderful sales on items each week.

I love that Sam has Trisomy21, it is because of him that I am who I am now. Before, I was a workaholic (money-holic) and family didn't come first. It is because of him that I realized how important family is.

I love my husband, even though I may not like him or his ways sometimes.

I love Hannah, Sam's PT. She is so wonderful with Sam.

It's hard to name all the things I love. There are so many.

Things I hate:

I hate that my mom (the one who raised me, not my biological) died November 18, 2007. She bragged to everyone, (even her own children) that she finally got a grandbaby that accepted her the way she was and didn't cry everytime she held him (Sam). I believe he was her favorite out of 10 because he never fussed at her and he went with the flow. He "talked" to her, cooed and stared at her intently...(sorry, I have to take a short break)--I truly miss my mom.

I hate that my teenage daughter is so stuck up her boyfriend's a**, that family comes second. I believe that their relationship is co-dependent...she always feels like she has to take care of him.

I hate confrontation...I like my life calm and without incident. (Many have told me that that is a downfall because I sometimes don't stand up for what I believe--unless I feel it is worth standing up for.)

I hate PMS...I can be a biotch during this time and have to watch myself.

I hate cleaning up after I cook. I can find lots of other things that I would rather be doing.

I hate that many people feel they have to belittle and harm others to make themselves seem better than others.

I hate that you have to take time out of your day to sleep...I have so much to do and that I want to do....sometimes I feel so disorganized.

These are a few of the things I hate...

I will let you know who I tag......
