Five Things I Don’t Like About Myself
- I have silly, girly emotions. Useless in my opinion. Practicality should reign. Alas, I still suffer from those feminine hormones that make me jealous and hurt like I’m 14-years-old, and every time it happens I get thoroughly annoyed. I want to shake myself or something. And that’s not easy to do.
- I have an extreme desire to work out and tone up before I can create a breeze when I wave, but lack in the willpower department. It seems like I have to have a reason that feeds to my vanity. The last time I exercised really well, I was about to be in 2 weddings. Go figure. Give me a reason to wear a strappy dress in front of a bunch of people, and apparently it motivates me more than good health and general wellness. Disgusting.
- It is very hard for me to disguise how I really feel. I’m a pretty good actress, but that doesn’t seem to help when I am thoroughly annoyed or irritated, or just feeling like crap. And I always look the worst when I want people to leave me the heck alone. So if I look like I feel bad — you know it, I know it, and the American people know it. Let it lie.
- I’m a snob. I don’t talk to my neighbors on a regular basis. I give a little wave and smile, that’s about it.
- I get annoyed when people are surprised, more like shocked, when I’m out without my daughters. Likewise, I get annoyed when people say, “Is The Husband watching the girls?” Puh-lease, I can have some free time, and he’s being DADDY, for crying out loud! Grr. But I should be more understanding, and I know that.
Five Things I Like About Myself
- I can survive on very little sleep.
- I am much better at taking criticism than I used to be. (That’s not an invitation.)
- I can make people laugh.
- I make a great apple pie.
- I am a frugal shopper.
