The Eight Things Meme

Apparently, this blog is turning into one big collection of memes. Oh I know I'll get back to blogging my usual whining and bitching and moaning at some point. That probably won't happen though until a new laptop magically appears at my house, and I'm not counting on that happening anytime soon.

I've seen this meme on several blogs and was pseudo-tagged over at The Silent Male's blog. Here's my best shot at it.

8 Things I am looking forward to:
(and before I answer may I say that every time I read that line the grammatical error bugs me, but it isn't my meme so I left it the way I found it even though I really really really wanted to change it to "8 Things to Which I am Looking Forward:")
1. Going with BJ to a conference on the West Coast.
2. Meeting a fellow blogger or two on the trip to the West Coast.
3. Attending my 30th high school reunion this summer.
4. Getting my house cleaned up (this could take a while). (This was on The Silent Male’s list, and I stole it verbatim because it seemed so applicable to me and my house, too.)
5. Finally breaking through some internal barriers with the help of my therapist.
6. Finding the means to get a laptop to replace the one I busted.
7. Continuing and possibly expanding my involvement in church activities and leadership.
8. Getting my divorce over with.

8 Things I did yesterday:
1. Took N to school
2. Went to work
3. Went to the bank at lunchtime
4. Ran loads of month end reports
5. Went to N’s Little League game
6. Watched N hit a home run! (actually would’ve been a triple if the other team hadn’t overthrown third)
7. Had a fast food dinner when N’s game ran late (after 8 p.m.!)
8. Watched a little TV before going to bed

8 Things I wish I could do:
1. I wish I could lose weight easily
2. I wish I could stop procrastinating
3. I wish I could be cured of depression
4. I wish I could stop tricking people into believing I’m okay by telling them what they want to hear
5. I wish I could believe in myself and trust that people are seeing through me and that I really am okay
6. I wish I could just be okay
7. I wish I could play the piano every day like I used to
8. I wish I could have a good cry

8 TV Shows I watch:
1. Survivor
2. Amazing Race
3. Criminal Minds
4. Cold Case
5. The Unit
6. Harper’s Island
7. Supernanny
8. Wife Swap

8 People I am tagging for this meme:
1. Nope
2. Nobody
3. No tags
4. Nada, negatory, nil
5. Do it if you want
6. Don’t if you don’t
7. If you like to be tagged, consider yourself tagged
8. If you don’t then consider this THE END
