I just read a post talking about how many people say "I'm____, but______." I know I do the same thing.

For example,
  • "I'm really sedentary, but I want to be fit"
  • "I'm a mom, but I would like to spend more time with my children."

  • "I'm on a tight budget, but I would like to have more financial security and be able to give more money to those in need"

  • "I'm a caregiver to my mom, but I wish I spent more time talking with her and getting her some friends in the area"

I would love to hear how you fill in these blanks: "I'm_____ , but_____."

LOL Judy, I almost put that down. I'm a woman who admires great housewives, but I am really bad at keeping house.

(However, I am great at coming up with plans for it and for big projects. But, keeping house on a daily basis? Not so good.)
Jis4Judy replied to Louise_WebMD_Staff's response:
me too I am up for some pretty big jobs cleaning but doing it on a regular basis seems to fly by me
I can plan the meals and keep the kitchen fairly clean
and the bathroom gets done every so often but no scheduled times at all..
I have no schedule for house hold chores I do some every day but just enough to get by lazy lady thats me..

louise did you see the book I wrote you about all the steps I do for chicken broth?
Hugs Judy:)
