The Game of Tag...Continued

I have been looking at other journals, and I found this game of tag that I would be fun to get to know people.  Please feel free to use it also.  Thank you to the journal that had it on there. 

I am also copying this off of Katie and passing it along.............Thanks to whoever started it..........

I AM: Chris

*I WANT:   To remain positive and upbeat.....to face each day as a challenge instead of an obstacle.......

*I HAVE:  3 children:  Rebecca, 24,  working and living on her own, pursuing a Phd in infectious disease and genetics at Pitt;  Joe, 22, still struggling to find his niche; and my ball of fire "baby:, Megan, 19, at Duquesne Univ. pursuing a degree in accounting; a totally deadbeat ex-husband; a cat, Mocha; a dog, Grizzly; and my longtime boyfriend, who is my soulmate albeit a few stones in our road, but my bestfriend and love of my life.

*I WISH: I would quit "yo-yoing" on the 15 lbs I put on last winter and buckle down and just lose it and keep it off already.


*I HATE:  I don't hate.....I seriously dislike but don't hate.....hate drains the soul.


*I MISS: My father, who died in 1994.....I was his princess and only daughter.  He showered me with unconditional love.....he also showered my children in the same way.  We all dearly miss him..........


*I FEAR:  Not having money in my savings account for emergencies.....obsessively.


*I HEAR: The Pussy Cat Dolls.....I can hear this.....also....OutKast, The Way you Move....

*I WONDER: If I will ever reach the level of financial security that I had pre-divorce.

*I LOVE: My family and boyfriend..........and myself............most importantly, myself....as it is impossible to love others if you don't love yourself, imperfections and all.........

*I ALWAYS: talk to myself, either outloud when no one is home or in my head when people are around.

*I AM NOT: Mean, vicious or fake.

*I AM NOT ALWAYS: calm and collected.  I tend to get really worked up. Me too...only about the most minute things.  My kids call me OCD'ing.  A major crisis I can handle like a trooper....little aggravations drive me totally crazy.

*I NEED: reciprocated love and respect.  Nothing more; nothing less.  I've reached the point in my life where I simply will not compromise on this.


*I SHOULD: avoid the sun as I have always been a sun lover....LOL...I think I have a sun addiction.  And number one.........STOP SMOKING....I'm still working on this..........

Hi Chris.  I'm happy you used this.  You just sound like a great person, and I really look forward to reading your journals.  I am the same age as your oldest daughter.  They sound like very smart and fabulous children

Hi Chris, I agree this tag game is a nice way to let your readers get to know you. I also used this as my first entry because I thought it's a good way to break the ice. I enjoy reading your journal and looking forward to staying in touch. Have you heard the Pussycat Dolls new song "Stickwitu" I love that song so much. If you haven't heard it yet I recommend taken a listen. If you want take a look and my tag info on my first entry.. ~j~
