Meet Momma Monroe or better yet Shirley Temple! You too can achieve this look with the lovely help of sponge curlers! lol. I envisioned long beautiful ringlets and instead got insanely bouncy curls that were uber short. I figured I might as well dress the part! Kinda fun. Broadway perhaps? lol
I am veering away from the given question for day 22 only because truth be told I am not exactly sure how to answer the question.
So my Day 22 Question is: What am I doing right now?At this very moment I am blogging, sitting in my jammies on the couch, listening to my mini Dachshund crunching on her kibbles and all while watching American Idol. Karen Rodriguez just sang it it was UH-MAZING. She seems so genuine and comfortable not to mention beautiful, sweet and a what a great voice she has! I loved her. Did any of you watch her sing tonight? If so, what did you think? I started watching late so I haven't seen all of the singers but, she has been my favorite so far. I've never had cable so I really never followed American Idol and honestly it's no big deal if I miss a week but, it's fun to watch when I am home. I wish I could sing like that. Seriously, I can sing..but, NOTHING like that. lol It would be so fun to belt out a tune and hit crazy notes without shattering my bathroom window. hehe. Oh, and did I mention that I made some delicious brownies and am eating a couple with a nice cold glass of milk too! Good night for me not so good for my baby. Daisy had a 101.5 temperature when I laid her down for bed. She was tired and groggy and flushed. I gave her tylenol before I put her to sleep and when I felt her forehead a few minutes ago it felt cooler. Doctor visit for Daisy tomorrow. Poor boo boo.
Day 23 - What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses?
I am well aware of both my strengths and my weaknesses in my head but, putting them out there in a blog post is not an easy thing to do. I'll give this a go though. My weaknesses are my need for things to be scheduled all the time. I don't like things that get thrown at me without time to prepare or plan on them. I don't like last minute changes to a big plan. It stresses me out and can even make me angry at times. Sometimes I surprise myself and I am flexible but, I wish I was always flexible and I admire people who are! Another weakness is that I struggle with insecurities and I think they hold me back at times. I have overcome SO much but, this is still a work in progress. I don't like doubting myself or the gifts God has given me and I don't like feeling inadequate next to other people when we are all cherished by the King! I have a borderline phobia of public speaking. It terrifies me to be in front of people whether on a stage, in a small group, on camera, etc. I have been working to overcome this for years. Baby steps! lol
I think a strength of mine is that I am pretty even keeled and patient. I don't respond in anger very often (which has been a big asset in my marriage) and I try to process things quietly before responding so I communicate my thoughts as lovingly as possible even when I am frustrated. Mom, is this true about me? lol I love to encourage people. If I see someone struggling with confidence, feeling down, sick or whatever it is my hearts desire build them up with Godly counsel and support. Oddly enough I am not always great about encouraging myself..oh wait, that should have gone under my weaknesses, haha.
So yah, how bout we leave it at this for now:-)
