So, I gotta Scrapper award! In a round about way Jax at The Roaring Twenties
1.) I have a bad habit for the past year. I sleep with the TV on all the live long night. It started as an "oops" and now is a comfort thing. I turn the volume down really low and sleep with a white noise maker on and it's like a cacophony in there. Noise soothes me though. I can't stand silence. But really the TV has been on "for light" since Henry's been here. Since he's been sleeping through the night there's no more excuses. So we're going to ween off of that.
2.) I have a taste for seasonal fruit. I only buy fruit in season for a couple of reasons, 1.) it's cheaper and 2.) it's at it's peak! Nature intends for us to enjoy these treats at these times. Not so much on the veggies, but Alicia and I are working on it. :)
3.) Flying with a newborn was the most terrifying thing in my mind. When I flew with Henry at 6 weeks I thought I was crazy. But it went great! People were so very nice and helpful. Henry didn't cause any problems and like Kat said the worst part was getting through security.
4.) I like to eat in bed. It's an indulgence and I love it. Sometimes I'll have a glass of wine, too. My bed is my sanctuary, my all time favorite place to be, so why wouldn't I have a snack or libation in their sometimes? No apologies.
5.) You don't have to be of any sort of religious following to appreciate the work of God all around you. In my opinion, the God I know gave me the most beautiful personal gift of all time; my intuition. And if you're lucky enough to be a woman, too, you have this gift. Just listen to yourself. Women are such incredibly smart and multifaceted individuals and we don't give each other enough credit.
6.) That being said I hate the saying "Things happen for a reason" because I think it's a horrible thing to say! "Hey Jimmy, your dad just died in an auto accident but things happen for a reason. Let me give you a hug". No. I'm sorry, sometimes there is no reason or why. It's beyond you and any comprehension anyone can have. Sometimes I feel like it's not mine or ours to decipher.I had a friend appear into my life out of no where and it was my intuition that told me to contact her. And guess what? We BOTH needed each other. All on a whimsy of mine to ask advice from this person. Now I have a close friend of which we shared a difficult time in life for a few moments.
7.) So that was getting deep. Every time Henry poops I make a big production sort of like this "OHHH MY GAWD, What is this?!?!? Alan! Alan! ALAN!!!! Oh it stinks it stinks it sticks. Oh God he's going to get it on his socks. WHAT?!? Is he still going?!?! Oh gross!!!" and on and on I go. Alan just laughs and laughs at me but really am not at my best with those doo-doo-diapers.
8.) I still miss smoking. I started smoking when I was 17 and quit last year on New Years Day. It took nicotine patches to help me quit and it was a sloooowww ween. I'll be a year cigarette free on 1/1/10
9.) I'm a sucker for those "As Seen on TV" products.. I nearly want all of them. I do have a Bump-It, lol
10.) I'm the worst with sending out Christmas/birthday/anniversary/thank you cards. But I'm working on it.
