some of my pieces

Well, I’ve stolen this from a few people but most recently Annie…hehehehe…so here goes.

People call me Traci. My dad used to call me Tracer. My grandfather called me TD. Somebody I once worked with called me JunkFood. My kids call me Mom…never Mother.

I have straight brown hair that my mother used to call mousy. It hasn’t looked straight in a gazillion years because I pay my hairdresser to make it long and beautiful and curly.

I don’t smoke. I have this huge paranoia thing going on related to my parent’s lung cancer too so I struggle to keep breathing when I’m around people who do smoke.

I rarely drink although the giant margaritas at Who Song & Larry’s tempt me every now and then.

I love caller ID!

I can fix almost anything given the proper tools and even without them, if I have long enough I can still do it.

I check my e-mail first thing every morning…well, not first thing…exactly…I have to fix my breakfast first. I check it at least two other times a day too and usually play a game or two online before bed. I definitely need a support group!

I drink Diet Squirt…having done away with caffeine about 6 months ago. I try to drink more water too but am still working on it. I figure a bit at a time with the healthier habits ok?

I had my gall bladder removed in January after years of stomach aches and heartburn. I was a regular visitor to the alter of Prevacid until then. Since my surgery, I haven’t had a stomach ache once!

I wish I was a neat freak.

I am really a slob instead…much to the dismay of my husband. (I tried to warn him, he chose not to listen.) I just figure I have my whole life to clean and only a few short years to spend with my children…he disagrees…too bad for him. I have much more fun than he does…and so do my daughters.

I have no idea if I suck at poker or not because I don’t know how to play!

I am excited my daughter is going to college and sad at the same time. I am the only person in my house who will miss her.

I don’t get frustrated quickly.

I tell everyone I am going to live to be 100.

My favorite singers are Reba, Wynonna and Martina.

I love to sing and have recorded two CD’s.

I have a low tolerance for stupidity and tyranny.

I am good at a lot of things but love very few of them.

I had a huge picture wall until I got married this time. Now I have all the pictures packed away. I wonder why?

We bought our house as a compromise. It had the two things I wanted most and the two things he wanted most. It was most definitely not my favorite house though but we’re getting it more right as time goes by.

I don’t like gardening but I do love power tools! My lawn tractor is so cool!

I think my husband loves me more than I love him…although I question his definition of love quite often.

Sex is not my favorite thing. I’m sure it has to do with my abusive past.

I have been in love with a woman. It didn’t end well however I could have loved her forever.

I was overjoyed to become a mommy.

I went to school to be certified as a Medical Assistant to conquer my fear of needles.

My favorite color is purple.

I have high cholesterol.

I love books.

I wish I felt like I was a good person.

I like shopping…most times.

It is still painful to me that my first marriage ended in divorce.

My dad’s death hit me harder than I expected.

Damn! There’s a lot more but I think that’s enough for today. Geez, louise, this could get ugly! Peace.
