I've come to realize...

I've come to realize that stealing Facebook posts for my a good thing.

I've got a couple of posts in the works but they require me to sit down and think or edit a bunch of photos. And I don't quite have that in me just yet...
But I wanted to get something up so here is a quick and easy Q&A that is making the rounds on Facebook though it was a bit too long so I've taken a couple of questions out. (And if you are like me and wanting a quick post, feel free to steal this one.)

1. I've come to realize that my chest-size...
is not as big as I once thought it was (prebabies).

2. I've come to realize that my job...
is the hardest thing I've ever done but also the most important thing too.

3. I've come to realize that when I'm driving...
I like the windows down and the boys singing in the backseat.

4. I've come to realize that I need...
something for just me...but I don't know what that is yet.

5. I've come to realize that I have lost...
my sanity.

6. I've come to realize that I hate it when...
I scream and cry.

7. I've come to realize that when I'm drunk...
well, I'm never drunk...unfortunately.

8. I've come to realize that money...
would be nice but certainly isn't as important as others believe.

9. I've come to realize that I will always...
need a shower.

10. I've come to realize that my cell phone...
is a must have when the boys are at school as I unfortunately get frequent calls from their teacher.

11. I've come to realize that right now I am thinking...
that I ought to be doing something more productive than this quiz, like maybe a shower.

12. I've come to realize that when I get on Facebook...
time will slowly get sucked away until I realize that I've spent way too much time on the computer.

13. I've come to realize that today...
is not over yet.

14. I've come to realize that tonight...
I've got to figure a way to get out of making dinner.

15. I've come to realize that tomorrow...
is a new day, a day to do better.

16. I've come to realize that I really want to...
take a nap.

17. I've realized the best music to listen to when I am upset...
nothing because I relish the quiet.

18. I've come to realize that my friends...
are few and far between.

19. I've come to realize that this year...
like all years with young kids is going by too fast...even if the days are so long.

20. I've come to realize that I love...
my husband in a very understated yet deep way.

21. I've come to realize that I don't understand...
just about everything.

22. I've come to realize my past...
is behind me and it does no good having regrets.

23. I've come to realize that parties...
aren't really my scene.

24. I've come to realize that I'm totally terrified...
of something happening to a family member.

25. I've come to realize that my life...
is basically good and I am lucky.


  1. So facebook is a good source, huh? :)

    Within the last 10 years, I have really come to realize how unimportant having a ton of money is. I just want to be able to pay the bills and not worry about it.

    I adore naps too!

  2. Love it!! Love it all! I am amazed that about half of those would of been my answer too, great minds think alike :)

  3. Oh, yes, of course I actually read it! I agree with point 2 (I think) - windows down, children singing in the back... a good summer thing.

  4. the teacher calls you all the time? i think you need a teacher with a higher tolerance level.....

    your kids cant be THAT bad. certainly no worse than mine. who bit each other this week. yes they are 5 & 6 and they BIT each other. why didnt anyone ever tell me that raising boys would be so hard?!?

  5. facebook TOTALLY sucks all the time you have away. i know! i'm with you!

  6. #25 it takes some people years, or not at al to realize this....
    Welcome back Carey.

  7. Great answers! I hate that I get sucked in at times...I just need to put the computer in the closet and lock it up! haha! Fun post, though! ;)

  8. So true about #22. I like to think that my past helped shaped who I am today.

  9. That is pretty good. Cell phone for me is a must have too. I think the windows down with the boys singing sounds melodious as well!!! ;)

  10. That's funny. I write a blog and then put it on FB, Maybe I'll try your way! Great answers!

  11. I've come to realize that being kind to yourself is the first step to being kind to your family and the world.

    I've also come to realize I Suck at memes, FB, etc.

  12. What an interesting post. I'm still sorry your having a hard time of it right now. A really big hug to you.
    Personally I like number 9, considering most times that's the only way I can have any "me" time.

  13. Awesome quiz! I haven't seen that one making the rounds yet. I've also posted things on FB and my blog. Especially the ones that took a lot of work!

  14. I like reading these quizzes. You should totally have a cocktail when the boys go to sleep. ;)

    (it's nice to "see" you again!)

  15. I loved this. So many things to realize and so many things to be thankful for. You are right...your life is good and you are so blessed.
