I'm a Lazy Blogger

I did this 25 Things list on my Facebook account and since I'm too lazy to make another original entry I'm copying it here:

25 Random Things About Myself:

1. I am a complete neat freak, which I'm pretty sure is a bother to my family. I can't even start on other projects until my entire house is clean or my brain won't focus. This is probably why I have a hard time getting stuff done.

2. I have a degree in dance that I don't use because I started having babies when my classmates were out starting careers. Sometimes I want to get back into dancing but I get overwhelmed and don't know where to start. Probably with going to class, right?

3. I started running a couple of years ago. I am not fast and I don't even attempt to be. I like how it makes me feel and how it has changed my body. Since I work out in some shape or form every day though, I have this irrational fear that if I stop I will wake up one day and suddenly be ginormous.

4. I feel like I am very spoiled.

5. For years I used to only order things like Chicken Caesar Salad when eating out until Jason took me to Fleur de Lys in Vegas for my birthday and I had Filet Mignon. I am now a very expensive date.

6. I often wonder how working moms do it because I am a stay at home mom and I feel like I am always running behind and can't keep up with everything.

7. I have always been a very introverted person and I feel like this often comes across the wrong way. There are times when I have forced myself to be outgoing but it doesn't come naturally to me. I think this is why I was good at performing onstage because I didn't necessarily have to be myself.

8. I miss performing onstage. I never had a lot of confidence in my dancing technique because I started training much later than others but I knew I had a stage presence and could sell it well.

9. I am baffled by people that have real careers. I try to make myself feel better by thinking they must be baffled people who have kids.

10. My mom died when my first daughter was 8 months old. I hate that my kids don't know her and that she didn't get a real chance to be a grandma. I also have lots of questions about how she used to deal with me as a kid.

11. I love nerds. I love nerdy things. I love most everything about nerd-dom. However, I hate Star Wars and the only Star Trek I like is The Next Generation. The Phantom Menace's awfulness made me so mad that I could not even watch it.

12. I love old timey music. A lot. If you come to my house you can expect to hear The Andrews Sisters or Al Jolson on the record player or the 1940's station on my radio.

13. I think that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of the most awesome stories ever created and would follow Joss Whedon and his work to the ends of the earth.

14. I love to read but I only do so in spurts. Right now I'm in the middle of a dry spell and it's making me angry.

15. I lived in the suburbs for almost five years and though it was a nice place to raise babies I always felt out of place. When we lived there I always felt like the baby of the neighborhood. Now that we live in area with a fair amount of hipsters and they make me feel old.

16. I used to have the worst time connecting with other moms. I was always the weird mom at soccer games or the outsider at the playground. I've finally started talking with a few women at my daughters' school but I still sometimes feel like people think of me as "That Mom."

17. I always have dreams about strangers being in my house like the freaky dudes from the movie "Dark City". (God, this is starting to feel like a therapy session.)

18. I am a dirty, liberal hippie. Deal with it.

19. I used to want to own my own vintage clothing store. I still sometimes think about owning my own business but I don't know how to begin.

20. I have always loved to sing and think I'm pretty good at it but I suck at writing music. I am jealous of girls who sing in bands.

21. I am interested in so many things, which I feel has made me be mediocre at a lot of things rather than an expert at one special thing.

22. I desperately want to be crafty. I am learning how to sew right now.

23. When I'm feeling down, I buy things. This can be a problem. Especially because I also like to shop when I'm happy.

24. I am 30 years old and I have been married to Jason 11 years. People's reactions are always amusing when they first hear that.

25. Despite my whining, my life is really, really good. Not a day goes by when I don't think about how lucky I am.
