Polarity Meme

Okay, so lucky duck Sticky tagged me for this ages ago. But I'm finally getting around to it.

10 Things I hate, in no particular order:

1. INFERTILITY (uh, this really is #1 though, isn't it #1 for all of us?)
2. An overtired, and thus psychotic, pre-schooler, notably mine (J)
3. Pretentious people who use big words just to show they know them, and who think their children are remarkable -- even when they eat sand
4. When DH leaves my car's sun visor unhooked and I go to put it down and it WACKS me on the head
5. When people don't know what to say about IF, and so say "maybe it will just happen"
6. When I overhear people give inane "medical advice" about their pets -- like taking voodoo root will cure Fang's tendency to chew off your fingers
7. That I was right, and the puppy we picked 3 years ago did develop raging skin allergies
8. When said puppy, now dog, insists on barking non-stop for 5 minutes at the paperboy/mailman/delivery person
9. My husband's long, long, long hours, and how they make him so tired he only hears 1/8 of what I say
10. Going to a social function where I hardly know anyone and have to make small talk with people I'll never see again

10 Things I love
1. My amazing, loving and devoted husband
2. My amazing, loving and comical son
3. Our goofy, barking beagle mix who has sad eyes and loves to cuddle and never bites J, despite the torment
3. My parents, who never stop amazing me with their support and respect for me, how they treat me as an adult
4. My veterinary education, even though I'm not using it everyday it's help make me who I am
5. Edy's Espresso Chip ice cream, heaven in a carton
6. A glass (or two) of lovely red wine and some friends to play cards with
7. A great camera and time in a darkroom (which I haven't done in decades, but LOVED)
8. Going antiquing and finding a great deal or exactly what I had in mind
9. Decorating magazines, the gamut -- Martha, Country Home and Living, RealSimple, Home and Gardens -- I just wish I could do the shopping
10. Painting, not the arty kind, but my house. I love seeing the transformation of a room and hearing my DH say "you're right, it looks totally bigger now," HA!

Okay, I didn't think too hard about these, but maybe that's the best way to get to know a bit about me. So now the TAG. I'm new to blogging and some of you have been around a little longer, so if I tag you and you've done this already ... sorry! Here are a few ladies I'd like to know more about if they are up for it ... Tag to some of my fellow 2ndary IFer's Leah at My Dusty Ovaries, and (I know you are busy but when you have a chance) Bean at Where is My Happiness , and a fellow scientist Caro at ThirdTimeLucky?. Hope you have fun Ladies!

To ALL the BFP ladies: I sincerely wish you good luck, speedy progress to the 2nd trimester and beyond, and all the joys that go with it.

To ALL the ladies in waiting: I sincerely wish you peace and serenity as you strive to build your family and perservere through all the difficulties. I am with you gals!

Thanks for the tag and thanks for popping over, I'll try and get on to this soon.

Leah said...

Thanks for the tag, I'll see what I can come up with. I'm pretty bitter lately, so I might struggle with the "love" list and pile up on the "hate" list. :-)

Waiting Amy said...

I know, I could have gone on and on for the hate list. Some of the love will be easy though, you'll see!

In and Out of Luck said...

Thanks for your good wishes. I like your list.

I SO hear you on #10! I'm so bad at going to functions and having to make small talk with people I'll never see again--and who, let's face it, I don't necessarily have much in common with. Argh.

And good call on he edy's ice cream. Good stuff!

And, Amy, I wanted to say thank you for the well wishes. This community really means the world to me, and I sincerely appreciate the support.
