5 Random Things About Me

I've been tagged by Linda Lu and Amber to post 5 random things about me. So here it goes:

1. Before Aiden, I used to kind of freak out whenever I 1. got sticky 2. got wet while wearing a sweater or fleece 3. got peed or pooped on (can you imagine that?) and 4. if I didn't use things in a certain order (I didn't really freak out but I did get a little twingey at times). It's amazing how much having a little person around changed all that for me. I guess that reality set in.?.

2. Jon thinks it's quite funny that I often make my own words. We tend to reference President Bush when I do this. The first paragraph includes one of my, not really a word but used often, words. I can't think of any other examples at this time, but I use them day to day. Which brings me to number...

3. I have the hardest time with articulation. I can sit here for minutes at a time trying to come up with the word or words I want to use to explain myself, to no avail. This seriously drives me nuts! I also have a hard time remembering words I intend to use. They are right there on the tip of my tongue but just won't come out. I sit there fighting myself internally because I know I have something great to say but just can't get it out. This is why I prefer to communicate over email. I have time to sit and think, write and rewrite, or use the thesaurus if needed. I've even forgotten words like cupboard. I have no idea why this happens. I hope no one takes me for an idiot. I'm not... Really.

4. It certainly doesn't come through in my writing as much, but I am very goofy. It mostly shows when I am around people who I am super close to. I make up songs, love to dance but have no talent for it!, and can come up with clever jokes.

5. I get totally into things, but have a hard time finishing anything without an impending deadline. I can sit and research a particular idea, and find the perfect way to follow through. Once I get started, if I can't finish in 1 or 2 sittings, I guess I just get over the excitement of it. I also go through phases in what I enjoy doing. Like with work, sometimes I like to get a whole bunch of slings done and other times I dread the idea of sewing.

Well, I really could go on but I am over the excitement of this little post already :) I'm not going to tag anyone else, but if anyone wants to tag themselves, please leave a comment for me. I'd love to read your 5 random things.

I'm so with you on #5! I found what helps is to only do OOAK's. It's the repeats of the items that cause me to lose my mojo sometimes.
