#1. I Feel a Change Comin' On...Or Not
(title thanks to Bob Dylan)
Change is good. Change is constant. Change is scary. We don't like it. We avoid it. Yet it becomes necessary to make changes in our lives in order to grow as human beings. And that sucks.
Of course, I'd like to think that I'm perfect, and there is not a thing I would change. But then I'd need to check into an inpatient unit and have my medication adjusted, as that would be just plain delusional on my part.
And if you read this, you can see some of the things I'd change about my physical self
I've decided to talk about a habit I'd
I am a Procrastinator, with a capital P. And to add insult to injury, I am lazy. So not only do I not want to do something, I don't want to do it NOW.
I don't want to do it LATER, either.
But since I have to choose, later always wins.
I justify my procrastination with my love of a deadline. I love the adrenaline rush, I like to see that I can get something done in record time (and I get weak-kneed thinking about all the lovely time I wasted before I buckled down and got the stupid job done).
Didn't I give birth to
They just didn't understand that after I was in labor to have them, I moved to management.
There's snow to be cleared tomorrow...and if you drive by, I'll be the boss leaning on the shovel.
Or maybe I'll just wait for the Spring thaw.
#2. What children's book do you hate reading to your child?
I hate repetition. Big time. Even in music. If I'm driving and a song is on that has repetitive lyrics or melody, I drive faster (thinking I'll get to the end of the song sooner that way). Yeah, I know...why don't I just change the station? Cuz I don't want to.
I am aware that children improve their memory by repetition. And I agree - it works. God knows I can't get the stories out of my head after all these years!
Here are two children's books I always dreaded reading to my kids:
The House that Jack Built, and even worse, There Was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly - because the little imps would want to sing that one.
Here is one repetitive children's song that I can tolerate (I think because it's SO annoying, it's funny):
Lambchop is cuter than a button, no?
Please stop by Mama Kat's for all the fun! You'll be glad you did!
