You think you know me but did you know…
- I have a severe vitamin D deficiency despite the fact that I live in South Texas. Oddly enough I did not suffer from this when I lived in Michigan, one of the more cloudy regions in the U.S. Some of my symptoms that occur when I’m not taking my vitamins are: odd, sharp pains all over, including in my eyes, fatigue and moodiness.
- We have not had a couch for over a year and FINALLY got one two days ago. Not sitting on the floor or on a lawn chair is now a little strange to me.
- When I started working full time all of my incredible cooking skills vanished. With that in mind I can follow a recipe, however, the urge to “improve” it through modifications typically takes over mid recipe and I characteristically end up ruiningthe entire dish. My sweet husband still eats what I cook, which is good… for him.
- Speaking of husbands mine is 9, count ‘em 9, years older than me. Maturitywise we’re on the same playing field.
- I have a bad habit of committing to doing something and then regretting my commitment because I’d rather stay in the house with my husband and two cats. I don’t typically back out of commitments and always enjoy myself once I’m wherever I need to be.
- When I was a kid I HATED my smile. I had a go-to fake smile that, when looking back, I realize is exponentially more hideous that my true smile.
- I never got to celebrate Christmas as a kid. Now that I’m an adult I have a childlike zeal that makes itself known about three months before the holiday season starts.
