Meme Monday - I've Come To Realize . . .

I first saw this on Lee Ann's blog last week.  Then on Crystal's.  Then it seemed every blog I clicked on had it posted.  So,  being desperate for blog content  the follower I am, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and do it too. Spoiler Alert: If you manage to hang in and read my answers to all 35 questions, there's a cute kitty picture at the end.  

1. I’ve come to realize that my chest-size…
is something I'm okay with, but don't really need to blog about.

2. I’ve come to realize that my job…
will never happen if I keep convincing myself I will fail before I even try.

3. I’ve come to realize that when I’m driving…
I'm constantly singing along (off-key and loudly) to the radio.

4. I’ve come to realize that I need…
more yarn.  (I hear you laughing.  Stop that!!)

5. I’ve come to realize that I have lost…
the feeling that I'm actually contributing to society in any way.

6. I’ve come to realize that I hate it when…
a bad low or high blood sugar makes me feel so crappy that Pea has to cook dinner while I rest.

7. I’ve come to realize that if I’m drunk…
I shouldn't have had that second martini, but it tasted so good and I'm having fun!!

8. I’ve come to realize that money…
can stretch farther than you think if you budget carefully.

9. I’ve come to realize that certain people…
think they know everything even when they don't, and will proceed to tell you all about it.

10. I’ve come to realize that I’ll always …
contradict myself - I blame it on the fact that I'm a Gemini.  No, wait, I never contradict myself!!

11. I’ve come to realize that my siblings…
includes my brother-in-law, who is the bravest and strongest person I know.

12. I’ve come to realize that my mom…
has passed along most of her mannerisms to me.  Also, her butt and hips - gee, thanks Mom.

13. I’ve come to realize that my cell phone…
went from being turned on once a week at most (when I had the old, out-dated phone with the terrible calling plan) to being on all the time and used obsessively for everything under the sun . . . except phone calls (yes, I now have an iPhone).

14. I’ve come to realize that when I woke up this morning…
I had a head-ache . . . again.

15. I’ve come to realize that last night before I went to sleep…
my blood sugar was low . . . still.

16. I’ve come to realize that right now I am thinking…
that my answers are way too boring and I should go back and spice them up a bit before I put my lovely readers to sleep.

17. I’ve come to realize that my dad…
really needs a pet, and when he comes to visit he's actually coming to see K.C. instead of me.  :)

18. I’ve come to realize that when I get on Facebook…
I need to avoid all of those silly games and quizzes or I'll spend way too much time there.

19. I’ve come to realize that today…
is the only Monday, September 21, 2009 there will ever be, so I need to make the most of it.

20. I’ve come to realize that tonight…
is going to be so much fun but also kind of sad.

21. I’ve come to realize that tomorrow…
should always be something to look forward to.

22. I’ve come to realize that I really want to…
be finished with this stupid meme.

23. I’ve come to realize that the person who is most likely to repost this is…
probably going to be a knit-blogger.  I think all of the diabetes-bloggers have posted it already.

24. I’ve come to realize that life…
never turns out the way you thought it would.

25. I’ve come to realize that this weekend…
I'm really excited about because we are going to see Stars Stripes & Skates, and it feels like the weekend will never get here.

26. I’ve come to realize that marriage…
is even more fun than I could have imagined.

27. I’ve come to realize that my friends…
that I rely on most are the ones I know over the internet, rather than the ones I know in real life.

28. I’ve come to realize that this year…
is almost 3/4 of the way over and that Christmas will be here before I know it.

29. I’ve come to realize that my ex is…
not the soul-mate I once thought he was.   But he is just as hot as I thought.

30. I’ve come to realize that maybe I should…
make more of an effort.

31. I’ve come to realize that I love…
having a cat - and that's something I never would have imagined saying two years ago, before Charlie came along.

32. I’ve come to realize that I don’t understand…
a lot of people in this world.  And I think that might be a good thing.

33. I’ve come to realize my past…
has left me with a lot of baggage, but hasn't everyone's??

34. I’ve come to realize that parties…
always make me so nervous that I'm tempted to skip them, but usually turn out to be a lot of fun.

35. I’ve come to realize that I’m totally terrified…
that no one has been able to stay awake long enough to read this whole meme!  After all, it put K.C. right to sleep!

Oh, I read it all. EVery little consonant and vowel. I had to, you had KC to tempt me! She looks wonderful. I've come to realize that you made her the wonder she is. You took her nasty chronic health issue and bravely had her surgery!

So sorry your diabetes is again, giving you pains.

JellyDonut said...

I read the entire thing. I shamelessly admit I will do most anything for a cute kitty photo. Thanks!

OK - I have to protest. You don't add to society? I think your posts about Diabetes Awareness have done wonders for educating so many of us about diabetes. How many people actually get to say they teach people. I think that's fantastic!!! BTW - we should chat offline.... I want you to join me for a really fun lunch with a woman who is amazing!!!

I read all the way to the end too! You can't trust the cat --- they'll use any excuse to pull a nap!

I read the whole meme and I think it was interesting to get to know you a little more! I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't realize that your low blood sugar could actually make you too tired to cook or do other things. But I am so glad to read of course how much Charlie and K.C. have brought to your life and apparently your dad's too!!

I have to disagree very strongly with #5! This would be a good time for you to #10. I will resist being a #9, I'll just say we don't always know how we affect the world, just as the pebble doesn't know it is causing waves in the pond. You are affecting the world, and being you, it is bound to be positive.

I enjoyed reading your meme and realized... that I have a lot of backposts to catch up on! I didn't realize you had a cat?! You know I love #19- no day but today!

Katt said...

i believe you contribute to society more then you think you do!! after all look at the love you get on your blog!

KC looks gorgeous!! i love sleeping puddy cats!!

Jean said...

The kitten is darling. While I don't like to argue, I do not agree with you on #5. We all have so much to contribute to this world, each of us can make our lives and the lives of others richer. The ability to love and care for each other is precious. I have just discovered you blog and am enjoying reading it.
