Things I'm Not Good At

- Painting (or clipping) my own nails

- Applying make-up

- Ironing

- Single-tasking (that's the opposite of multitasking in case you are confused)

- Responding to blog emails/comments  (I'm trying, I really am!!!)

- Grading papers in a timely manner

- Getting up early

- Staying up late

- Laundry

- Cooking

- Giving back rubs

- Arts & crafts

- Dancing

- Listening

- Mopping (maybe it isn't so much that I'm not good at this, as it is that I just never do it)

- Letting some one else make decisions/ be in control

- Sticking to diet plans

- Utilizing a "Home Organization Binder"

- Cleaning (or doing anything, really) quickly

- Driving

- Being on time

And, just to balance out this self-deprecation a little, here are a few things I think I am pretty good at (if I do say so myself):

- Decorating

- Finding a bargain

- Making Sam laugh

- Sleeping

- Making Sam stop crying

- Telling stories

- Writing

- Making a diet plan

- Teaching

-  Entertaining

- Creating an adorable "Home Organization Binder"

- Public Speaking

- Getting ready in less than 30 minutes (shower, blow-dry, make-up included)

- Showing others grace

- Showing myself grace (this is a work in progress, but I'm getting there)

What would your lists look like?  I'd love to know!

*I'm linking up this post with From Mrs. to Mama's "Women Connect" today.  I imagine this post is slightly different from most; but, I do think it is a good representation of who I am - which is mostly light-hearted, real, and (sometimes) kind-of deep.  If you are here visiting, I hope you'll stick around and get to know me more! (Also, check-out my "About" page for the more basic stuff.)
P.S. I got this idea from the blog Charmingly Chandler.


  1. Hi! I'm visiting from Women Connect! I love the post idea. Short, sweet, to the point.

  2. I was relieved when I got to the second list. I was worried that you were being too hard on yourself. If it makes you feel better, I too am bad at listening. And I don't know if I'm good or bad at ironing, because I simply refuse to do it.

  3. Also, never feel bad about not responding to my comments. You can skip mine and focus on other readers' comments. I know you're reading them!

  4. My list would look EXACTLY like your's. Like I could cut and paste your list onto my blog and it would be 100% true.

  5. We have a lot in common, you and I ;)

    I linked up too!

  6. I didn't realllly link up, but I've been stalking all the awesome posts on the link up today :) I was happy to see you are a working mama. So many blogs are SAHM's and while I would love that, I also love to work... and it's something I'm constantly thinking about. We have no kids yet but would like to start a family within the next couple years and I'm happy to find someone who can blog about both work and momma stuff! Sorry for the novel! ;)

  7. your lists are funny!! you are pretty hard on yourself, though!!


Your comments are what makes this thing fun! I LOVE to hear from you and do my best to respond to everyone! THANK YOU!
