Blogathon 2006 Post # 42

Wow, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I'm psyched that I've gotten this far without completely losing it, but I must admit I'm so wired at this point that I don't think I'll be able to sleep at 9:00. I might have to just continue.... just kidding! About continuing, anyhow. I'm so done. I don't think I'll be posting for a while. I believe you have plenty to read, right? Like 49 posts worth. :-)

I feel proud about:

It isn't my wardrobe or my makeup drawer, that's for sure! Nope, I'm proud that I've held onto my beliefs and convictions despite so many of the hardships we've endured as a family. I've always been very politically motivated and politically active, and that hasn't changed at all. I've been a stalwart supporter of Israel since I lived there in 1970. I've never changed my religious beliefs despite the way Judaism treats single parent families. I've remained a hippie in tie-dye and overalls despite the fact that the rest of the world wants Prada and Escada. I have never worn high heels in my life. Nor do I plan to start anytime soon. My hair is gray and I like it that way. Makeup is something my daughter wears. Not me.

I'm not a faddish person. I'm still carrying a backpack and not a purse. Oh, I own plenty of purses. Really expensive, made just for me purses by Carol Hearty. But I like my backpack and it's so much more convenient with all the medical accoutrements I need to carry with me.

Sometimes I feel like an old fogey, but that's not really what I'm about. I just stick to what I like and what I know works for me, despite what society says is more correct. I'm my own person, I've always been that way, and I'm really proud of that.

And you? What are you proud about?
