I'm Back & WWTK

My busiest time of the year has finally concluded! I can't tell you how anxious I am to get my life back! I'll tell you about my big banquet later.  I'm totally out of the habit of blogging so it might take me a while to get back into the swing of things.

I'll start back with something easy: We Want To Know sponsored by Mamarazzi and Crazymama. All the content has been provided for me and I just have to fill in the blanks. If you want to join in the fun, feel free to link up!

This week's questions are all about friends.

{1}I have found myself jealous/envious of this friend because...
This isn't really a good question for me because, lately, I've tried to make a conscious effort not to be jealous of others or wish my life away. It's so easy to want the things that others have but we must realize that not everyone has everything. I'm jealous of all my friends who are skinnier than I am. I'm jealous of the ones who have a nicer home or a knack for decorating. I'm jealous that those without kids seem to have so much time. I'm jealous of my friends who don't have to worry about money. BUT, my lack of decorating skills, my frugality, and my plethora of children makes me who I am. I bet you didn't want an answer quite that detailed, did ya?

{2}I admire this one for her _________ (insert admirable quality) and tell us about them.
My friend, Sandy, is such a talented artist and can turn anything into a work of beauty in just a few moments. I can barely hang a picture on the wall. In fact, I have her coming over this summer to do just that! I will watch her kids and cook her dinner while she spruces up my home a bit!

{3}I really love this blog friend because...
I admire a lot of bloggers, who are listed in my blog roll. I haven't updated that list (or my wallpaper) in quite some time. (Yes, I know it's no longer snowing!)

{4}I was stuck on a desert island I would want to be with this friend...
If I can get away with this, I'm going to say my hubby. He's truly my best friend and the person who gets on my nerves less often than anyone else!

{5}I think the best qualities in a friend are...
Being themselves. My friends and I all have a lot in common. I don't want them to try to be something they're not to impress me. I won't do that either. I enjoy being with people who are like me. Bad traits in a friend are self-centered people who don't know how to pay a compliment. Be there for me and I'll be there for you.

You are right, I think there are things in all our friends that we are (for a lack of a better word) jealous of. But it's often because it is something that we lack in our lives. On the other hand we have things in our lives that they might be jealous of ... so when you get together you fill each others lives .... together you are 'perfect'. So while the things we have in common attract us to each other it is often also the things that we don't have in common. Ooops didn't think it was going to sound so deep :)

Great to hear you are back to blog!
It is very easy to be envious of friends that have more time, decorating skills, etc. But you have to remember that you have your own set of skills that I'm sure they are jealous of too. :)
I said my other half also for the deserted island one! No offense to my girls.. but they wouldn't be too helpful stranded on an island! HAHA!
Awesome qualities, and great answers :D

being good friends really does involve a give and take. It can't be all one sided.

I like all your answers, and I'd like to think you and I would be friends in the real, non-blogging world. I like your honesty, your principles, and your sense of humor!

Good to see you back blogging. You're very brave to answer those questions. They seem to be difficult and easy at the same time.
