If you really knew me...

A blog I love, Mommypants, had a post inspired by Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. Since I didn't have the slightest idea what to write about today, I decided to jump on board.

If you really knew me, you'd know that:

1) Clutter drives me nuts, yet my house is cluttered despite my best intentions. So frustrating.

2) I'm horribly shy with new people unless I'm hosting or in charge in some way. I have no idea what the difference is. More than once my shyness has been taken as boredom or unfriendliness.

3) Despite my best intentions, I am a grudge holder. It takes a lot to piss me off, but once I'm there, I'm there for a nice long while.

4) My eye sight is horrible, which is why I squint even when I'm wearing glasses or contacts. I am not ready to admit I need bifocals yet. Because I totally don't.

5) R is my second husband. My first marriage lasted about a year. A stressful, horrible, meddling mother in law filled year.

6) I love being able to be a stay at home mom, but I miss a lot of things about working.

7) My first car was named Kermit because it was Kermit the frog green.

8) I'm training for a mini triathlon with my husband

9) Doing nice things for others for no particular reason makes me very, very happy. Especially if I can do it anonymously.

10) I love, love, love to read.

Good job on the triathlon training! That's awesome! And I totally know what it's like to have a meddling MIL! Ugh! Glad you got your second chance. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Great list! I also miss working, although I'm glad to have been able to stay home with my girls. I also hold grudges, although I'm trying to work on this....I am so impressed that you're training for a triathlon! You go girl! (:

Love that your first car was named Kermit!

Doing nice things for people (especially anonymously) is a wonderful feeling, isn't it?

Stopped by from the workshop. :)

I'm with you on the shyness! When I'm in charge -- no problem. Otherwise... what's with that stand-offish, aloof girl? Is she stuck-up? NO! I'm just introverted! Really!

Love to read as well. I didn't know they had mini triathlons. I have always wanted to complete a triathlon but have been way to intimidated.
