I am ...


I am:
  • Good at unloading the dishwasher but not so good at actually doing the dishes
  • Always several loads behind on laundry
  • Often found in my pajamas late into the day
  • Someone who will forgo a shower for creative endeavors
  • A veterinarian who is allergic to animals
  • Someone who is always a few days late for her next allergy shot
  • Someone who gives eggs as gifts (but must photograph them first)
  • Often exhausted (especially after working)
  • A dreamer (and lover and poet and believer)
  • A person who prefers comfort over fashion
  • Someone who has never dyed her hair and rarely wears makeup (allergies people)
  • Someone who is in complete awe of her children and their amazing open book potential
  • A lover of all things vintage and worn
  • Emotionally rich but financially strapped
  • Constantly vacuuming up dog hair
  • Shy
  • Someone who loves "me" time
  • Used to heart palpitations (and finds them oddly comforting)
  • Peri-menopausal
  • A bagpiper without a set of bagpipes
  • A writer, photographer, crafter, seamstress and knitter
  • Scatterbrained
  • A budding buddhist
  • Someone who hates talking on the phone

Thanks for sharing! In my household, we also find ourselves always behind in laundry work. Hmm, I think for me, shower will beat creative endeavors because it helps me think. And why eggs? Although I must say, I'd love to receive eggs and the way you present them is so nice :D

Shalet said...

Hi Johwey! We give eggs because we have backyard chickens and therefore and abundance of them. :o)

I chuckled at your first "good at"... I am good at loading the dishwasher... not so good at the unloading! I think it is because after you load it the kitchen is all nice and neat. Happy weekend!
