First time on this blog….

I don’t normal take these things because I hate picking who deserves what but since this isn’t an award and I don’t have to feel like I’m picking someone over someone else I’ll do this one. It’s cool really!! So I’ve been tagged by Deanna and boy you have to go and read her Q&A’s.

So I’m suppose to give you 11 random things/thoughts:

1. I am afraid of being without Mike here at home.

2. I have a sugar addiction I can’t seem to break.

3. I get overwhelmed easily but I handle things pretty good.

4. When I make a friend I want to keep them for life, not just be a stepping stone in their lives.

10. I love meat, thick juice steak, pork chops, chicken, pork roast. Just don’t get it almost ever.

Great little tidbits about you! I don't like being home alone either. That book you read last sounds really great. I'm going to put it on my list.

I enjoyed getting to know you a bit better Julie! :) Have a great start of the week! ♥

Neat Neat Neat!!!

I agree with your number 11. Mr. Pea and I are transitioning - half the kids are fledglings, the other half are still in the nest. We've decided to start working early on being a couple again in lieu of being parents. After several decades, it's sort of hard to transition out of that mindset!

I need a haircut, too. I'm resorting to headbands and letting the curls run wild instead of smoothing them out with a blow dryer.

I don't like being home alone either, and I am learning to love meat!! We didn't much of anything beyond hamburgers growing up, but now I am really learning to love meat. My hair needs trimming too...bother. Thanks for the tag. :) I'll do that sometime this week.

I enjoyed reading this one! Mike will become independent and so will you. And needless to say, the love will grow. The Lord will protect, guide and nourish you.
