As I mentioned in last week's post, thanks to a fabulous gal pal blogger (and old college friend) Ashley
I have found a fun fashion blogger http://www.hopeandthedresscode.com/ who is sponsoring Fabulous in, where each Monday in February we must say 3 positive things about ourselves. It was tough the first week, but I have been reflecting and here it goes:
I like that I can read quickly and take deep meaning from what I read. As an English teacher and student, this makes life much easier. I can practically speed read. I am taking an online graduate course right now and I can get through 15 education articles with a screaming 2 year old in the room in less than a hour and then pull a decent refelction paper out of my butt that summarizes all the main points.
I love that I am a planner. I can plan the crap out of any vacation. We rarely forget anything when we travel and my to-do lists are to die for. People thought I was crazy taking a newborn and a 2 year old on a 5 day camping trip in the Mountains with no toilets or shower ...but it went off without a hitch thanks to my weeks of perfect planning.
Speaking of camping. I like that I am very low-maintenance. I camp, I hike, I am not afraid to travel through remote jungles of Belize with slightly creepy tour guides. I am tough and have carried a baby up a mountain without complaining. I have come face to face with wild animals without screaming. I do not need makeup or a mirror ever day and I think I am confident enough to try almost anything. I thank my mountain man father for this.
