Manic Monday

Manic Monday for December 10, 2007

For the holidays, are you a last-minute shopper or do you shop well ahead of time?
I try and shop well ahead of time. I still have three people left on my list, my FIL, my grandma-in-law and now Pat’s Tia. We are going to her house on Christmas day so I know I should bring her something.

If you had to pick a new first name for yourself, what name would you choose?
In all honestly, I wouldn’t pick a new name. I like my name, but if your twisting my arm I’d say Emalie. IDK why but I love the name. I am so tempted to name our next daughter that, buuuuttt we kinda want to stay with “S” names for girls. Is that weird? So that means the next girl would be either Savannah or Shelby

What’s worse, having expectations that are too high, or having no expectations at all?
none at all; I think, but then again I always hold high expectations for everyone and now for quite a few people I know not to expect anything. Like making plans to do things with people, I make the plans and after the first few times of getting the girls excited and then my friends not following through I have realized that it’s a a 5% chance they will actually follow through on their part. But like my best friends Megan and Jillian, I hold high expectations for them. Is that a bad thing? I am not trying to say that they have to always do what I want but it’s more I want the most for them in their lives so I want them to try and be the best they can be. Jillian has gone through so much in her life and she still holds her head up and knows that she can do whatever she sets her mind to and I want her to. She deserves to have the world and whatever she wants. anyways, I probably went way off on that question but I tried to explain why I feel the way I do.
