Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Hump Day - and it feels like an uphill climb

I have that "thank God it's Wednesday" feeling today... and it's such a short week too! I'm not sure what's going on with me yet, but I feel very blah, tense, anxious and like I can't wait for this week to be over. 

I am so glad Leigh Ashley came up with good wee bit of me Wednesday questions today. I am thankful it is Wednesday, which means two more days until I can spend some time on me and relax. I'm happy that last weekend was the last weekend Jed will be working on outside house projects (and I hope he takes a little break on the indoor house projects for a few weekends too). Oh yeah, and I'm grateful it rained this morning so our freshly planted grass seed could get some natural hydration!

{one} what was your first pet and how did you come up with its name?
You've all heard about my adorable Lhasa Apso, Morris Arthur. I actually didn't name him -- Justin and his roommates at the time did -- but I agree that his name is perfect for him. The boys decided they wanted to name whatever dog they got after the name of the street they lived on at the time: Morris Avenue. One of the roommates decided Arthur was the perfect middle name.

{two} do you like your ice crushed or cubed?
Cubed. With few exceptions.

{three} do you believe in love at first sight?
No, you have to know someone to truly love them.

{four} do you have any nicknames?
Way too many to list here! Jen is the most common, obviously.

{five} what movie do you never get tired of watching?
Bad Boys. I don't know why, but I heart that movie.

{six} how do you like your eggs cooked?
I'll eat eggs cooked multiple ways, but my favorite is omelets, and they better not be overcooked! 

{seven} are you named after anyone in particular?
My mother, in an indirect way. She didn't want to give me her first name, so my first name is my mother's Confirmation name, and we both have the same middle name.

{eight} what are three things that you would like to do that you haven’t done yet?
Get married, travel the world, have a family... probably in that order!

{nine} what one thing always brightens your mood?
A kiss from Jed.

{ten} what five things will you always find in your purse?
My driver's license, cell phone, lip gloss, eye drops, cash or credit card.

okay, now it’s your turn!

Hey Jen, I just found your blog through Leigh Ashley and I really like it :) Also, I love that Kenny Chesney song.

I'm sorry, but I just LOVE posts like these. They're straight, to the point, and you learn so much about your "online friends."

We're so much alike, Jen. I hope to someday (soon!) get married, travel and have fun, and start a family, too!
