What’s on deck today? A fun post about me inspired by Ashley’s post over at A Lady Goes West (check her out if you like healthy living blogs and a glimpse into California living!).
Want some insight into the person behind the blog? Well, today you’re getting it. I have no problem admitting all the things I’m really bad at. And this is just the short list! I’m working on these things I swear, and if you ask Tom, I think I’ve improved on a few of these points as of late. Maybe not. I actually asked Tom if he could help me with this post and bless his heart, he agreed with the first point below, but said he didn’t know and couldn’t come up with much else. He’s amazingly good at lying and guess he’s learned a lot after 4 years of marriage! 😉 So… let’s get on with it. Admitting I have some weak points is the first step at addressing them and improving, right? What’s something you are really terrible at?
Things I’m really bad at
If you know me in real life, you can attest to at least one point on the following list. To publicly shame myself, I’m presenting you with a list of things I realllllllly suck at. So enjoy this one. 😉
Keeping house clutter to a minimum.
Taking no for an answer.
Staying up late.
If it’s midnight and I’m still awake, one of three things is going on and none of them are good: 1) I’m sick or Dagny is sick. 2) I’m jetlagged 3) Crisis at work. None of those things? Then I’m in bed and asleep by 11 max. Often 10:30. There are exceptions like if we’re traveling or visiting family and there’s a party or concert or something else.
But my everyday life? You’ll find me snoring at a toddler’s bedtime. I know that I’m a granny. If Tom and I start a movie at 9:30 pm, unless it’s the best movie ever, I pass out on the couch halfway through (much to his dismay, but hey he doesn’t get up ’til after 9 on the weekends when I’ve been up for hours). I’m not a night owl and am perfectly happy to wake up early and get my day started shortly after sunrise. Or this time of year, before since sunrise is after 8am where I am. Yikes!
Handyman stuff around the house.
Knowing street names in my town.
In the evening when Tom gets home from work, I’m smack in the middle of my own work and can’t focus on prepping a meal. I’d love to use my slow cooker once a week and whip up something awesome on Sunday that I can save and heat up as leftovers. And sometimes we do this but it’s not consistent. I know what I need to do and what I should do but for some reason I just can’t consistently get there!

Please chime in and let me know if you can relate to anything and tell me, what’s something you are really terrible at? We’re all friends here.
