Me Lately …

Here’s a bunch of random junk about me because there have been a couple of times when I think I’m awesome. And then the rest of the time I pretty much wonder if I’m just plain weird.

ME RIGHT THIS MINUTE: Sitting with my back against the burning hot glass of our gas fireplace.

ME IN TWENTY MINUTES: Warming up in a hot bath and then hopping into my fuzzy socks and fleece pajamas while my heater blanket warms up the bed.

JUST FINISHED: Wonder by R.J. Palacio.

JUST STARTED: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

CAN’T STAND: Handling raw meat. Gag reflex in full force.

CAN’T HELP: Singing every song in the radio even though my daughter says I sound like dying cats.

REALLY MISSING: David Tennant as Dr. Who.

REALLY EMBRACING: Amanda Abbington as Mary Watson on Sherlock.

WISH I COULD START: Learning calligraphy.

WISH I COULD QUIT: Cleaning toilets used by boys.

ON MY GOOD LIST: Jimmy Falon making me laugh every time.

ON MY BAD LIST: Justin Bieber living the thug life.

ON MY MIND: An upcoming visit from a far away friend.

IN MY HEART: Jesus, constantly working miracles.

MAKING ME SO HAPPY: A trip back to New York City for Mother’s Day

MAKING ME SO SAD: My brother and his family are moving!

NEW MAN CRUSH: Benedict Cumberbatch

OLD MAN CRUSH: Benedict Cumberbatch

WISH I HAD: Ronalin in Virginia.

WISH I DIDN’T HAVE: Dry, itchy skin issues.

GOOD AT EVERY DAY: Praying with my kids before they go to school.

BAD AT EVERY DAY: Taking off my makeup at night.

GLAD THEY INVENTED: The Swiffer.

WAITING FOR THEM TO INVENT: The stinking cure for cancer. It’s getting old for reals.

LAUGHING BECAUSE: I love finding funny pictures my daughter sneaks onto my phone.

CRYING BECAUSE: People I know and love deal with really hard stuff a lof.

FASHION FOR ME: Mixing patterns.

FASHION FOR NO ONE: Black leggings. I’m over it. It’s like girls wearing nothing but tights.

I THINK I’M AWESOME WHEN: I end a day without yelling at a single kid in my house (believe me, it’s rare.)

I THINK I’M WEIRD WHEN: I look in my closet some days and think, “I would rather go naked than wear a single thing I own.”

I love your random posts, they are always so clever and insightful. The weird thing is I feel totally in sync with you on most of it except for heating up the bed. At this time in my life the colder the bed the better.

Every random fact about you makes me nod in agreement or want to know more. I say you are fascinating and funny, not weird.

I think we might have been twins separated at birth, although I'm not nearly as cool. Love everything about this.
