I Can Do Bad All By Myself



  • How long can I possibly spend killing brain cells reading the comment sections under news stories? I tell myself over and over again, "Don't do it; you'll want to tear out your eyes and move to the moon." Then I go and do it anyway. Who's coming with me to the moon? You get to drop 1/6th of the pounds on the scale, there. Cheesecake for everyone!
  • I realized that Maile called our security system monitoring service not once, but twice, this week! One call was over 5 minutes. What did she talk to them about, I wonder?
  • If trophies were given for ability to put one's foot in one's mouth, I'd have a large gold foot displayed squarely in the center of one of our bookshelves.
  • I've been selling quite a few unneeded items through a local buy/sell/trade group, and one of our neighbors has taken to conveniently being outside every time she sees a new vehicle in front of our home. I'm no Walter White -- promise!
  • If I don't have a deadline, I will draw a project out as long as humanly possible, until I have to apologize 10,000 times for whatever I'm doing being so late. If you get a birthday card from me within 6 months of your actual birth date, I really, really love you. If I want to thank you for something, I probably still haven't, so if you're one of the many awesome people in my life, whether online, or 'real,' I love you, and I appreciate you, and maybe someday check your mailbox. Just not this week.

'Fess up -- What do you do 'badly', without any help at all? ;)

  1. I am so. with you. on the first one. I spent almost half a day in a conversation with no one I knew in a comment section. I will go with you to the moon. Can we take all the people who comment with us? Actually, bad idea.

  2. There's not possibly enough room haha

    I'm really bad at laundry, like REALLY, horrible...I can no longer see the floor of my master bedroom, bad. It is clean! Just not folded. It got to the point where I was once pulling out clothes that my sweet girl had OUTGROWN. haha

    I'm really bad at keeping up with my hair. I get it cut twice a year, maybe three times. Awful!

    I'm also bad about mailing things...thank you notes, returns, etc.

    I could go on and on LOL but those are my BIG OFFENDERS

    1. Yep. Mailing things is maybe #1 on my list!

  3. Oh man, sending thank you cards will be the death of me! It took so long for me to send thank you cards after our wedding that I ended up not doing it at all. You know that point where it's been so long that it would just be embarrassing to send them? Yeah, I reached that. haha
    Love that picture of you and Maile! You two are the cutest :)

  4. Meal planning...it is the bane of my existence. I hate it more than cleaning toilets and every other dirty job combined. I put it off and put it off until I stare at the wall and realize I have no idea what I'm going to make for dinner and there's nothing left to eat. Someone please tell me what to make and I'll happily go grocery shopping and cook it!

    1. Ah, cleaning the master bathroom is up there for me. The powder room and guest bath? No problem. But I'm ashamed at how the master bath currently looks, despite how much I love a nice, clean bathroom!

  5. Totally guilty of your first and last bullet points. Why DO I read those comments? Especially when I know they will get me riled up. And the procrastinator in me is the worst at sending cards (birthdays, thank you, you name it). Deadlines are the only way I can complete a project and it doesn't get done until the last minute. I've read this might have something to do with being a perfectionist and I know I'm guilty of that. ;)

    1. I'm totally with you on deadlines, and I agree that being a perfectionist must be a part of it. The same part of us that loves crossing things off our to-do lists secretly loves just making a deadline, too!

  6. I love these. I'm very good at talking myself IN TO and OUT OF things. For example: I don't need to exercise. I've been chasing Michael around all day. That's plenty exercise. OR: I totally deserve pizza for dinner. It's been an exhausting day and it's either that or cook something, and I do not have the energy to wash all the dishes that would take.

    Michael will hide something, or get into something, and I will think he's perfectly content and then walk into the room only to find a disaster zone, or him chowing down on something (90% of the time it is actually edible food).

    Love you! <3

    1. I think they did! I muttered a quick, "So sorry. My toddler answered my phone." Hung up, and called them back -- haha!

  8. I'm AWESOME at going to Target "to look" and coming how with 2 bags full! I'm also pretty good at opening a bag of Reese's peanut butter cups and eating 10 in a row without batting an eye.

    These were great! Made me smile! XO

    1. Oh my gosh, I hardly even go to Target anymore! I can't go in and not spend $100.

      You can come over and share a bag of Reese's with me anytime, my friend!
