Ten Honest Things

1. I cannot stand when people are late, absent any good reason. And even with a good reason I still get irked. This was especially maddening when I was doing hair in a salon.
When I am late for something I just about have a full on panic attack. If I'm not ten minutes early, in my mind, I am late.

2. I also cannot stand when people chew with their mouth open or slurp their drink.

3. I hate when my feet feel dry and scratchy, especially if I have to walk barefoot across cement. BLECH!

4. I love taking baths. It's like a hobby of mine. If I don't feel good either mentally or physically, a super hot bath always fixes me right up.

5. I use sugar and both powdered and liquid creamer in my coffee (all at the same time) when I drink it at home.

6. I am turning 35 in a couple of weeks and I am not happy about it. This is the first birthday that is bumming me out, and I hope it's not a pattern because there's not turning back the clock.

7. I am having a hard time with sending my youngest off to kindergarten in the fall. It's not that she's not mentally ready. She's just so tiny for her age and I'm worried she'll get run over by all the other kids. Hopefully having a big sister will have taught her the proper way to throw an elbow without getting caught.

8. I love love love reading true crime novels (or "murder books" as my husband calls them). I'm also obsessed with the television equivalent. When I found the ID channel I about peed myself with excitement.

9. Ever since I was old enough to read and write I've wanted to be a (paid) writer. It doesn't look like that's happening any time soon so blogging is the next best thing. I'll take what I can get.

10. I love my family. Some days I wonder how the hell I got here, but I am so happy I did. Without them and my wonderful friends, I would most likely be the subject of one of those books or TV shows I love so much. I wish I was kidding.

Big ups to Alice at Mindless Rambling of a 26 Year Old for this prestigious award (seriously, she sent a fruit basket and day spa gift certificates with it. What? You didn't get yours?).

I'm supposed to tag some people to continue the gut spilling. I can only think of two people off the top of my head that would really really get into this.

Earth Muffin and Astroboy.

Get to work, bitches!

I share your hatred of people who are late, it is like their time is somehow more valuable than ours.

Bubs said...

I had forgotten you were a hair stylist. I'll have to tell the eldest about that.

Sorry to hear about the birthday depression. That's hit me twice in the past 10 years or so, for no real reason. Try not to let those bad birthday thoughts take hold. Plan something nice for yourself if you can, and count your blessings.

I could not agree more on #1.

Earth Muffin said...

Thank you for honoring me with this prestigious award. I await my fruit basket and spa certificate with bated breath.

35 was a little hard for me too. I've always been a "age is a state of mind" kind of gal, but now that my age is about to be (choke!) 37 it seems more like a monkey on my back.

Alice said...

Thanks Bacon Lady!!!! I am glad you like your award and the awesome gift basket too!!!

35 is not old... I keep telling myself that since I getting closer and closer to 30

I relish the idea of turning 40. Ima start my own Sally O'Malley routine.

Dale said...

If it were just the first 4 items on your list, we'd be mistaken for each other. I'm usually 20 minutes early even for things I don't want to do. Maybe I should just have an extra bath?

Tanya Espanya said...

It's true what Dale says...You have to show up for dinner the night before or he dumps the food on your head.

For Your Scrapbook

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
