30 Days of Truth: Day 11

Day 11- Something people seem to compliment you the most on.

That was easy, wasn't it? Well, it's true. The girls get me the most compliments, not just because they are cute but because they can have very outgoing personalities. In the right mood, they are downright impossible to ignore. Case in point: pushing them around Target with Sophie yelling "Mewwy Cwistmas!" and Liv saying "Ho ho ho!" to every one we pass. I try not to be one of those crazy moms who get addicted to their kids getting attention, but I do feel a weird pang of jealousy whenever a child near us gets a compliment and the girls don't. Madness, right? But they are such an extension of me, it's hard not to take such things personally.

Besides the girls though? The thing that comes to mind is my handwriting. Which is funny because for years I had horrible handwriting. Then I took some drafting classes in college, and my writing changed to all caps forever and people seem to like it. I had to work very hard to re-train myself to write in proper D'Nealian in order to teach Kindergarten!

30 Days of Truth: Day 10

Day 10- Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn't know.

Well, hmm. This one is tough. I can be remarkably good at letting go. I surprise myself sometimes. And pretty much every one I associate myself with is on my own terms these days. I don't run in a social "pack" anymore, I don't have a work group of acquaintances that I am obligated to hang out with. I pretty much spend time with the small handful of people I choose to spend time with, and most of them (here I am thinking about Amy and Susan) are pretty darn awesome.

I might come back to this post and edit it if someone springs to mind, but so far... nope.

(Was that artful dodgery? Because if you would have asked me this question 5 months ago, the answer would have been much, much different.)
