TT # 9
|The ladies at T13 have challenged us to write 13 things that we like about ourself, because we do spend more time talking about the things we don't like. So it would be nice to focus on the positives, rather than the negatives.|
So ... here are ..... Thirteen Things That I Like About Myself 1. I like the fact that I taught myself how to knit from a book and watching a video. I take great pride in my knitting, and that pride is greater when I know that I am the one who taught myself. 2. I like that I have a pretty decent singing voice. Not operatic, mind you. But fairly decent, and ok to listen to. 3. I like that I get more and more computer savvy every day. I am trying to learn some HTML, and I think I am doing an ok job with it. Now, don't ask me to design a blog or website. Not up to THAT much coding. 4. I like the fact that I followed through with cloth diapering my last child. I didn't think that I would have the fortitude to see it through, but I did. And I am so glad that I did. I loved every minute of it. I love it when I can surprise myself like that. 5. I like my sense of humor and quick wit. I like that I can (sometimes) come up with a crack, and I think my timing is pretty good. I won't be doing stand up any time too soon... I am not the next female Dane Cook or Ron White. 6. I like how I can multi-task. I love to be busy, to the point of appearing to be insanely busy. I love how I have been able to juggle a lot of balls in the air. I don't like it when those balls drop to the ground, of course. 7. I like that I can dye yarn. A lot of people are amazed that I can do this, and I love to admit that the item I am knitting is using my yarn. 8. I like that I have a law degree, and that I am using it. I decided not to practice when I was in law school, and I am glad that I stuck to my guns on that decision. 9. I like my vocabulary. I don't have a large one, but what I do have ... some words I use can cause some to scratch their heads. 10. I like the friends I have. I know that isn't something directly about me, but it is. I like that the friends I have seek me out, and me them. I like spending time with them, and they are all people that I need to surround myself with. 11. I like that I have found Thursday 13. I am so glad I made the decision to try it out, and this is my ninth week doing so. 12. I like, no, I LOVE my blog. It is very me. 13. I like that my reputation precedes me in some settings. So ... what are 13 things that you like about yourself? Dare ya!

I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
The nine-year-old who seems to be growing older every minute, has an opinion and a comment for everything, and has a true servant's heart.
The seven-year-old who loves the organization of things, will someday be someone's therapist because of his kind soul, and will more than likely be living with us until he is 40 years old.
The five-year-old with the 13-year-old attitude, who has a dictator's personality, asks you to watch her all the time and say "hold on" to keep your attention, and will someday come home on the back of some dude's motorcycle with 10 tatts and a body piercing or two.
The man of the house, the fixer of things, the winner of prizes, and the only person in his family to escape the South.
And the answer to the question was....
Oh .... the sexual depravity
More than just a Happy Meal
On the cusp
The Crocodile Hunter
A heavy heart
Apparently $ 10K can buy a lot of fireworks
