Five things I don't do well
1. Getting out of bed in a timely manner. I procrastinate and procrastinate. And I try to get back to sleep. I don't want to get up and face my to-do list.
2. Running. I can't run more than a block. I want to die at the end of the block. I'll walk all day but don't ask me to run.
3. Calling people. I hate using the phone. I'd much rather use email. (Except for calling my mother or my sister or Jim). I'm fine to answer the phone, but I don't like initiating the call. I'm afraid that people don't want to talk to me.
4. Seeing. I have glasses and contacts to help with that, though, so it's ok.
5. Sticking to a routine. I get bored with some routines (like using the same exercise video more than two times in a row), or unplanned events crop up and I get majorly sidetracked.
OK, now I've complained about myself publicly, I will allow a little pat on the back. Five things I think that I do well. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
1. Making dinner. I love to cook for the family. I love trying new recipes, but I also like using family favorites. I love to make up dishes and I am good at substitution when I find that I am missing an ingredient. Just this morning I made chicken salad for a luncheon and I added avocados and Lawry's salt and I was quite pleased with the result. (But now I'm out of Lawry's salt. The luncheon is for 50+ people and my Lawry's ran out! I've had that shaker of Lawry's for quite awhile.)
2. Knitting. A friend who knits all the time told me (when I showed her one of my little projects) that I have very even stitches. I am learning many knitting techniques through the Monthly Knit-Along Dishcloth Group.
3. Folding laundry. I am nitpicky about it and I have certain ways of folding for certain things. I like doing it because it's an excuse to watch TV.
4. Sewing. I need to do more of it.
5. Being agreeable. I tend to side with whoever I am talking to. So if you need a yes-man (uh, woman), I'm your man (again, woman).
