some things about me.

most the time I am actually pretty private on here.
BUT, I read this today and thought it sounded like a pretty good idea.
If you knew me, you would know:
I love rainy days and the smell of laundry.
I think Jordan almonds are addicting.
And, sometimes laughter is addicting too.

You'd know that even though I have gotten pretty good at not showing it,
my feelings are easily hurt.
That my kids actually think I am INSANE, because I often say things backwards or
too straightforwardly.
Which usually causes them to blush a little.
They think I seem too happy most the time
"and that's just not normal"

People often think I am really, really air headed.
And actually, sometimes I let people think I am. Or, just insane.
Because, that is easily the best way to see someones true colors. no?
You can quickly find out who your peeps are.

I have a hard time turning my brain off.
I am in creative mode too much and sometimes wish I had a pause button so I could keep up.
I tell myself not to worry 100 times a day.
I worry too much about the people I love.
But a Momma bird has to teach them how to fly right?
So I whisper, "you can't live in fear, you have to trust this life."
as a daily reminder to myself, and then, I try to let it go.

I think absurd things are insanely funny.
like a pissed off person.
I probably make them even madder because I usually start laughing at them.

That I have the smell of a blood hound.
It is a gift and a curse.
I can probably tell what my kids have been up to with one sniff.
But I also might pass out because the person in the elevator with me has doused on too much perfume.
I have also saved the house from fires on more than one occasion because of this gift.

I don't think you have to do every single thing that society says you "should do"
I am kind and quiet when people question my choices that go against it.
Because I know what's best for my kids.
Society does not.
SO I just smile and nod.
And then I don't send them off to preschool.
And I decide that kindergarten at home is a much better choice for us.
thankyouverymuch.

If you knew me, you'd know that some of the things that my shop is turning into are most of the things that I love. These are things that I doodle and draw and want for myself.
SO it's fun.
SO there, now you know a little more about me.
What should I know about you?

  1. Love it!

    As for me - I am super sensitive. When I get mad I cry (which just makes me seem week instead of strong.) I hate being told no and when people tell me I can't or won't be able to do something I make sure I DO IT! I often put too much on my plate and can't blame anybody but myself for that - like you my brain is always thinking creative thoughts. Some nights I can't sleep because I am too busy planning in my head. I know I am capable of so much more I just don't know how to get there. :)
