10 Things

This has been a crazy, hectic week. In the midst of the crazy I realized a few things about myself. Some good, some not-so-good, but still all me.

1. I work to a schedule and when that schedule is interrupted I become very agitated and I don't recover from that agitation quickly.

2. I'm totally enjoying Reisling month. I began with my old standby St. Michelle, then moved to a Mondavi which was just the best. Now, I'm trying a German brand called Schmitt Sohne. I'm having salmon tonight and I think they'll go well together.

3. There are entirely too many televisions in my house. This does not make for an environment which is conducive to effective writing.

4. I need more self-discipline.

5. I accept rejection today much better than I did six years ago.

6. I lack that hostess gene that some women possess so I hate entertaining.

7. I like carrying around a few extra pounds.

8. I have a man that loves, supports and encourages me no matter what. This whole week would have been unbearable without him by my side.

9. At age 43, I still yearn for my mother's approval.

10. I still know how to hold a grudge.

Thanks for reading. Love you guys.

Your list could be my list...but I think mine would end with 20 not 10.

I like your list, and we have some similarities.

I was laughing aloud at the first one. I hate when folk on the job would mess up my flow. Unfortunately, I'm so transparent it wasn't easily hidden.

By the way, you have to pick up an award. :D

I was thinking of you and your reislings yesterday when i was with a friend who said that he doesn't drink red wine during the summer...

i need to apply that to tequila, at least for THIS summer.

6. I lack that hostess gene that some women possess so I hate entertaining. Baby, I don't think you're alone. At least not according to the honeys I know -smile

7. I like carrying around a few extra pounds. - YESSS! Thank God for a few extra pounds. Although I tend to go above and beyond with what I'd like to see the ladies carry on them...

Love you too Chele!

Now, that first one, that was my problem all last week.

I don't have that hostess gene either. what's up with that?

I need that self discipline too. I think I will be forever under construction in THAT area.
