6 Things About Me....A "meme"

My friend, mamajil, tagged me. FUN! So to start....
Her blog, M is for Mommy, can be found to your right, just scroll down.

2) Post the rules on your blog (copy and paste 1-6).

5) Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6) Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Ok, six things you didn't know about me, or maybe you did.

1) I hate being deaf. It's very isolating. Even with an implant that enables me to hear, I still function as a deaf person. I miss a lot of life, but not as much as I used to. But I am still not a totally independent person. I hate it.

2) I have never tried to have children. None of them were planned. I am glad they are here though. Who knows where I would be without them. And I don't want anymore. I don't think I could handle it. 3 is enough for me. That's just who I am.

3) I would love to live in a big city where I could walk everywhere or take the subway. I hate driving.

4) I have some emotional scars from my childhood that prevent me from enjoying or doing certain things in my adult life. I need to get over it, but I just can't.

5) I don't have a lot of patience for some things. Ok....many things. I get irritated pretty easily, but I do force myself to have patience about it. For a little while anyway. On a good day.

6) I want my kids to stay kids. That way, I am in control of their lives. I can keep them safe and healthy. In other words, I wish I could freeze time. I do not look forward to the day when the kids have moved out and are fending for themselves. I just don't trust myself to bring them up in a way that allows them to be successful and happy. Try as I might. I guess we will find out though. Fingers crossed and first and foremost, trust in God.

my husband and i love sign language, and wish we knew more.

I may give this a shot over the weekend when, hopefully, I will not be so exhausted! Thanks for thinking of me.

I clicked on your site from M Is For Mommy; it's very interesting to read a little about you! I, obviously, didn't know you were deaf either. We have a good friend who, within the past year, had a cochlear implant; and that has changed his world in so many ways. But it's not like perfect hearing.

May you be blessed in many ways!
