- This week we'll talk about my flaws. We all have them. I get then and than mixed up. The more I think about those two words, the more confused I get about them.
- I'm HORRIBLE with directions. Last week I went downtown to a play. It should have been fun. All I could think about was, What if I get lost? What if I can't find a spot to park? What if I can't find my car afterwards? By the way I got there just fine! The other was to a graduation for my work. No one seemed to know where it was at. I got there fine to. I was feeling anxious all week. I told the Director of the college, "See this is why I don't schedule very many field trips. If I can't get places, how in the heck to I give my students good directions in getting from point A to point B?" I really need to get out more.
I'm so glad my husband rocks with directions. Although I do have to say that once I know where I'm going I'm better with getting places than he is. He goes in a lane that has a big utility vehicle in it, or the lane where everyone slows down to get on the interstate when we don't have to, and sometimes he takes a scenic route just because he forgets where we are going entirely.
- I don't wear very much makeup, I'm not a girl that paints my nails, and I let my hair go natural. I have frosted grey highlights. I don't know if all this is bad. It's just me. In fact I get complimented on my grey hair because it's so even.
- I'm not sympathetic when it comes to my kids getting shots. Is that bad? Some moms put on Facebook, "My poor son got his shots today. It melted my heart!" I think, Well it's better than getting Polio, Meningitis, Chicken Pox which isn't too bad, but leads to Shingles, which is horrible, Whopping Cough, Measles, and more. Suck it up they cried for less than 5 minutes. If they got something horrible they could be dead. I have that same conversation with both my boys when we're walking into the doctor's office when they are about to get a shot. They understand how serious things can get with illnesses. I also remind them of how I got allergy shots once a week when I was their ages. Yes I hid, but I neglect to tell them that part.
- Lastly I find myself in the middle of most things. I blame this on being a middle child. I grew up in the middle of my difficult older sister (whom I shared a room with) and my parents. I was in the middle of my oldest sister and my youngest sister. I usually try and see things from more than one side. Kind of a Cubistic approach. You'd think that many people would like that I do that. I'm trying to understand them, and their situation. Really it ends up pissing people off. They want me to choose them and their situation. When I bring up the other side to what they think is wrong, or right they automatically think I'm against them. I'm not. I'm just trying to make them see the light to what else is out there. I'm trying to open their perspective so to speak. The way I describe my views on vaccinations is how I think about most things. I think about the pros and the cons. I have a mixed thought on them in the end. I make a stand on the side that makes more since to me.
On the opposite of my pro vaccinations, I have my doubts about them to. Like, hummmm...what's in them? In that aspect I wish I knew what they are injecting in my boys. The government lets all kinds of crap in our food, and skin products, maybe they do the same with our vaccinations. Do you ever think about this? My mom had Polio, and Isaak had Meningitis, so my pro shots way over powers my anti shots. Trust me you don't want to get one of those things!
