Things That At Which I Fail

  1. Triple Digit Subtraction when attempted without paper
  2. Determining which way is north

  4. Negotiation (I have two modes: "Sure! That's fine! Overcharge me, I implore you!" and "$3. No? You are Effing dead to me.)
  5. Tempering eggs
  6. Doing anything to my eyebrows, ever
  7. Not crying during any even vaguely moving film

1. Asking for help. I never ask for directions or how to do something. Usually I find out later that it would have been better (or quicker!) if I'd just asked someone.

2. Finishing projects.

3. Getting into good habits (like flossing or taking vitamins).

4. Cooing over babies & pets. No, I do not want to hold your baby.

5. Spending time alone. Sure, I can manage if you give me internet and a good book, but I get stir crazy if I don't get human interaction.

1. Finishing things

2. Deciding which is left and right when on a hurry.

1. Accepting that not everything is as it should be (according to me).
2. Driving to a new place without completely freaking out and subsequently making a wrong turn that I wouldn't have made if I spent less time freaking out and more time calmly following directions.
3. Using my sewing machine without breaking/bending a freakin needle every freakin time.
4. Waiting for the bath to fill up all the way before getting in, even though I know it would be that much more satisfying to shimmy into a full, steaming tub.
5. Sweeping and vacuuming the floors daily. Which is essential with a baby, because he'll find the one minuscule piece of yarn you didn't sweep up, eat it, then throw it up.

1. Doing math in my head. I'm a retard.

2. Being organized in all things. I want to be, though, really I do.

Chrissy said...

1. Knowing my left from my right, in a hurry and otherwise.

2. Any craft involving yarn. I have given up on knitting forever.

3. Reading in bed. I always fall asleep within five minutes.

4. Having an argument or heated debate without crying.

Beth said...

1. Math. Ever. On a calculator is okay, but I'd really rather have somebody else do it for me.

2. Exercising calm problem-solving skills. My main methods are cry + sleep.

3. Not crying when I miss somebody.

4. Being sick. It's really really boring to be sick, so I get tired of lying in bed all day + get up + run around, + then get more sick.

5. "going with the flow." Everything I do is carefully scheduled. Everything.

Darcie said...

1) simple math in high pressure (read: public) situations.

2) apologizing to my husband when i know i've done something stupid (as opposed to when i've done something seriously wrong)

3) not being sarcastic. big fail.

4) giving up on friends that might be wrong for me.

5) admitting failure of any kind. ;)
