A Little Friday Fun
Andrea did this last week at Under Grace Over Coffee for Caffeinated Randomness and I thought it would be a good break from serious posts. Here's lots of random stuff you can learn about me!
Maybe I should actually take a day off. My kids have been at camp since Wednesday and I promised myself that Friday would be a day without work. I know I won't keep this promise, but I would probably benefit me more than I know.
I love the times that God gives me answers before I even know to ask the questions.
People should know that I'm very focused. Sometimes this can come across as rude, but I'm really not trying to be. I'm just efficient.
I don't understand how people cannot watch Friday Night Lights. It is simply the best TV show there is.
When I wake up in the morning um...well, I'm just a big grump. Especially when my 4 year old comes in screaming, MMMMOOOOMMMYYYY at the top of her lungs. Even when it's said in joy, it just doesn't come across that way first thing in the morning.
I lost my some of my hearing when I was young. This does help slightly with the screaming in the morning, but unfortunately, not enough.
Life is full of surprises. Some good, some bad. Just gotta roll with the punches.
My past is full of rainbows. There were lots of storms, but the sun always peeked through the clouds eventually. God never wastes anything.
I get annoyed when people drive slow in the fast lane. This always happens when I am late. Always.
Parties are tiring for us introverts.
I wish I had more ability to sing. I think it would be so freeing to just belt out a song and have it come out sounding pretty, or at least somewhat decent.
Tomorrow I am repainting my adirondack chairs -- lime green. It's good to be bold.
I have low tolerance for whining.
I am totally terrified of sharks. And yet, every year I anxiously await for Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. They really are beautiful creatures -- at a distance. A very far distance. Like me on the couch and them in the ocean kind of distance.
I wonder why I have to have pimples, even when we are 32!
Never in my life have I said "no" to watching a James Bond movie. I love James.
High school was on the whole, pretty darn fun.
When I'm nervous I sweat. A lot.
One time at a family gathering I pretended to know everything about The Pogues so I could look cool to my cousins. The only reason I actually even knew who they were is because my boyfriend (now husband) had one of their CDs. I didn't actually listen to them.
Take my advice: It's not worth it to hurt someone just because they hurt you first.
Making my bed makes my bedroom look so much more cozy.
I am almost always listening to what someone is NOT saying.
I'm addicted to chai lattes. It used to be Dr. Pepper, but at least tea is a bit healthier.
I want someone to invent a "easy" button for home improvement projects. Just dream it and it's done!
Have a fabulous weekend and check out Home Sanctuary (Rachel's back!) and Under Grace and Over Coffee for more caffeinated randomness!
