We Leave Tomorrow

Leaving early Friday morning. I am no where near ready and starting to have an anxiety attack. I just want say screw it and not go. I really can be my worst enemy (all though I think that is true for most of us.

I still have cleaning and packing to do. I have to finish up a list of information for the pet sitter. I also need to give one of the local vets Bullet’s information in the case of an emergency. This really is nothing compared to what is running through my head.

I am going to try to remember to post while we are on vacation. It will be posted immediately rather than scheduling though. Or, maybe, I will save the good stuff till we get back. I have a couple things I could publish.

Just in case I forget though. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Ten Things You Don’t Know About Me

Keeping up with the ‘get to know me’ style blog posts, I have decided to do some facts about me. However it seems much harder to think of ten things that are somewhat interesting. Let’s give this a shot though.

  1. I love numbers and math. It is not like I am a mathematician but I adore all the rules and how the process works from beginning to end.  I am not going to go into a huge explanation or gush about it.
  2. I am a high school drop out. I have completed my grade/year 10 and a course (or two) of grade/year 11. Not something I say proudly but proof if you work hard enough and are creative you can do what you set your mind to.
  3. I spent half my childhood growing up in a Mennonite colony and went to church with the neighbours for a while.
  4. I am dating someone…. you’re not getting any details other than that though.
  5. I had some foster siblings growing up (my parents fostered for a bit).
  6. I have three tattoos. My lower half sleeve is also a cover up. I do wish I had a picture of the original tattoo though. My first was when I was 13.
  7. I also have had my nipples (both one right after the other) pierced twice. Besides my earlobes when I was little, they were my first. Go big or go home. Right?
  8. I stopped speaking when I was a toddler. Sometimes my speech impediment comes out and makes people feel awkward if they are not aware of it. It also created a social anxiety that slowly improves over the years.
  9. Despite the social anxiety, I really love to talk and be around people. This makes things even more frustrating for me.
  10. I really would  do and have done anything I can to help someone out that needs it. It is what makes this world a good place.

I must admit once I got to number ten I struggled to think of something. I actually struggled through the whole list. It is a good exercise to think of what your qualities are. Especially good qualities as we criticize ourselves the hardest. While this is not what I had done with the list. Trying to think of facts about me is just as hard though.
