The Monday Project - I rock? Yes, I do!
This week's Monday Project assignment was a toughie! Our topic? List five ways in which we rock. Do I have to? Can't I do something else for extra credit and stay after school to erase the blackboards or somethin'?!
After taking a short trip over to a few blogs of other ladies in the Sisterhood, I see that I was not the only one to have a hard time with this one this week!
OK.. deep breath.. here I go....
1. I ROCK because I have not given up, not on my weight loss and fitness goals, not on life even though my family picture frame is not as full as I want it to be, not on my marriage, even though we have had some dark days in the past and most of all, not on myself.
2. I ROCK because I know a million jokes. Seriously! You don't want to get me started telling jokes because it will go one for a long long time!
3. I ROCK because my friends and family know they can count on me. Say the word and I am there for people.
4. I ROCK because I once drove in a demolition derby (for a story I wrote for my newspaper at the time) and won a third place trophy for it. Still have a chunk of the car as a souvenier!
5. I ROCK because I still hope. For lots of things, big and small, hope still lives.
Oh what the heck.. now that I am on a roll, how about one more? I am shameless like that!
6. I ROCK because I play fiddle in a Celtic band, along with my husband and a few friends. it's a ton of fun and we do a few gigs for charities each year.
