Realizing Stuff

Something lighthearted to kick off the week.
The "I've Come To Realize" Game. Shamelessly hijacked from the Nocturnal Wench: feel free to play along if you like.
1. I’ve come to realize that my chest-size ... is irrelevant in the larger scheme of things. 2. I’ve come to realize that my job…now that I have finished raising my kids, is an unknown quantity. 3. I’ve come to realize that when I’m driving… I am anal about observing traffic rules 4. I’ve come to realize that I need… solitude, chocolate, family, friends, space, self-discipline, tv and my laptop - not necessarily in that order 5. I’ve come to realize that I have lost…nothing in comparison with what I have gained 6. I’ve come to realize that I hate it when… I waste time 7. I’ve come to realize that when I’m drunk… er, um, pass 8. I’ve come to realize that money…can be a trap or a blessing 9. I’ve come to realize that certain people…hide their beauty behind an unlikely exterior 10. I’ve come to realize that I will always… be yearning 11. I’ve come to realize that my sibling... is frailer but stronger than I am 12. I’ve come to realize that my mom… had to handle some very heavy stuff in her life and actually did a brave job 13. I’ve come to realize that my cell phone... has become a necessity 14. I’ve come to realize that when I woke up this morning…I had to convince DH it was his turn to make coffee 15. I’ve come to realize that last night before I went to sleep… I had so many people to pray about, I nearly fell asleep in the middle 16. I’ve come to realize that right now I am thinking…what all do I have to do tomorrow? 17. I’ve come to realize that my dad… might have been a successful artist if he had not had to support his family 18. I’ve come to realize that when I get on Facebook…I wonder if it is possible for us to get more banal 19. I’ve come to realize that today… I accomplished very little but spent the day with DH, so thats worth more 20. I’ve come to realize that tonight… I have a dry home, a warm bed, a hot bath, a good meal - which makes me super privileged 21. I’ve come to realize that tomorrow…I need to be organised 22. I’ve come to realize that I really want to… be organised but the chances are remote (unless a miracle happens, which is always a possibility) 23. I’ve come to realize that the person…I'd like to be, is very different from the person I am 24. I’ve come to realize that life… is a journey and an adventure but not a doddle 25. I’ve come to realize that this weekend…was spent mainly watching sport 26. I’ve realized the best music to listen to when I am upset…is Beethoven 27. I’ve come to realize that my friends… are a vital part of my life 28. I’ve come to realize that this year… has been a very significant one for me: next year could well be even more so 29. I’ve come to realize that my ex… did the best he could 30. I’ve come to realize that maybe I should… try some more new things 31. I’ve come to realize that I love… the interaction in a group 32. I’ve come to realize that I don’t understand... myself very well 33. I’ve come to realize my past… good and bad, has played a role in who I am today 34. I’ve come to realize that parties…are a rare thing in my life, sadly 35. I’ve come to realize that I’m totally terrified…of my life getting smaller as I get older 36. I’ve come to realize that my life… is an 'above and beyond' life in terms of how many good things have been poured into it

Hey Allie! I loved reading your answers. I did this sometime in the last month or so. I think it was a fun meme to think about.

Hugs,

Susan

Thanks for all the affirming comments - I like it!
My life would be thinner without you guys for sure!

Rambler man - its nearly the time when everyone is feverishly par-taying all over the place.
So you don't have long to wait.
To say nothing of your b/day. . .
