Let's be real most of the time over here on the blog I'm sharing things I'm good at, right? I'm not bragging AT all, but just sharing in hopes that it'll be beneficial or helpful to someone else. I started thinking..."Why don't I share the things I'm not good at and then maybe someone will have some ideas for me"? And voila! This blog post was born. :) So in no particular order these are the things I am NOT good at....
This is pretty much as good as it gets from me. Ebby Lee wants to be an artist and I have NO idea where those genes came from!
You guys. I mean for real I have a big problem with this. Think red face. Think sweat. Think nervous laugh. Sometimes even think hives depending on the severity of the situation. I remember choosing a degree in college and weighing the not-having-to-take-a-public-speaking-class very highly when deciding. Seems crazy to me, but as an early childhood education major-I did not have to take the class.
This one applies to anywhere outside of the United States. I'm pretty good right here in the U.S., but if you ask me where ANY other place is, I'm in trouble. I could tell you the continent. hahaha! (We did a fun little song/dance about the
five seven continents when I was a teacher. I have those down!) *Except-I published this and said I could tell you where the FIVE continents are, so maybe I'm not good at continents either. Thanks, "Anonymous" for pointing that out. It was seriously just a typo, but super funny and proved my point about geography.* But...not the name of the country for sure!
I should go ahead and add any sort of historical thing onto the list. I'm 99% sure my high school history teacher does not read this blog, but I'm just going to say that history was NOT my favorite subject. I'm sure it was all me and not her. Basically, we read sections and answered questions. I memorized the information long enough to remember it for my test and then it was gone.
I mean I know everyone has reflexes, but mine are the opposite of cat-like. You know that game where someone holds their hands on top of yours and you try to slap their hand before they move them away?? You know what I'm talking about? Let me tell you that if my life depended on it, I'd go down because my reflexes are lacking. I have no clue why Tab and I ever played that, but we can laugh so hard by playing that game and observing my turtle-like reflexes.
Really who is good at laundry? Anyone? Every single time I get all caught up I tell myself that I will not let it get that out of control again. Give it a week and there I am again. I have definitely gotten better, but I still have a bit to go. Maybe I should set a daily alarm that reminds me to do a load of laundry?
*Remembering Hair Appointments
I've never missed a hair appointment. Whew! Those things are serious around here! But...I have the hardest time remembering the date/time. I ALWAYS have to call or text my hair stylist to ask when it is. I'm sure it's annoying for her, but she's gotten used to it and will now remind me with plenty of notice. I think I forget because I make them in advance?
What about you?? What are you not good at? Maybe we can give each other some helpful ideas. If you have any about the laundry, please let me know! :)
