Some things you've always wanted to know..and the majority you probably did not.
- I get really excited every day to get the mail. It's weird and I know that. But I hear that mail truck and I get a little flutter of excitment, like a mini dose of Christmas morning. And if it's a bad mail day (aka no mail, all bills, or stupid mail no one wants to read) it makes me a little sad! I'm so glad the postal service didn't suspend mail service on Saturday's. That would just be too long for me to not get mail! :)
- When I was growing up I dreamed of being a lot of things. A teacher, a professional tennis player, a newscaster, and then in college, a marriage therapist. Now I am a Mom and it's the hardest/most rewarding job I could have ever chosen. I still have no clue what I want to do when this season of life is over but I really hope I find something I love doing.
- I have major anxiety over going to the doctor. Like, horrible anxiety. And it's not rational at all either. So when I was high risk with gestational diabetes and pregnancy induced hypertension at the end of my pregnancy with Layla and going to the doctor at least 3 times a week, it was horrible for me. Giving birth wasn't exactly fun for me either but at least I had this perfect tiny bundle in my arms each time. I don't like even taking my kids to the doctor or my dog to the vet. Any type of medical environment just makes my heart start to pound. I can cross nurse/doctor off my list of occupations I will never pursue.
- I hate building or putting anything together. My mind has about 0% engineering ability in it. Luckily my husband has an engineering degree and can make up for my lack of ability in that area.
- My "love language" from Gary Chapman's 5 Love Languages is "gifts". At first when I realized that I thought to myself, ugh that sounds so shallow! But the more I read about it, the more truth I saw in it for me. It's not the material part of the gifts that matters to me, it's the thought of the gift that makes me feel loved. And I absolutely love taking the time to think of gifts for my friends and family, that's how I show love to others. And the gift doesn't always have to be something material, but could even be the gift of time or help that someone gives me or I give them. I highly recommend if you haven't figured out your love language, to do so! It's very interesting!
