Five Things I'm Bad At

There are plenty of things I'm not great at. There are things that I am good at too. But today is all
about things I'm just plain crummy at.


1. Wrapping presents -- I am so bad at it. I always admired the way my mom wrapped presents. My husband is amazing at wrapping presents. Me, I'm bad. I don't know if it's impatience or bad planning or if it's just something that I don't excel at. Whatever the case, I am horrible at wrapping presents.

2. Playing video games -- Not something I excel at. I have no coordination. My hand-eye coordination not so great. Sometimes the hubs and I play Wii games today - Donkey Kong or Mario (that's the extent of my abilities) - and even then I'm not great.

3. Figuring out the middle -- That sounds weird. I know where I'm starting and I know where I want to end but figuring out how to get there is not my thing. The hubs, luckily, is really good at it.

4. Keeping plants alive -- I have a black thumb. I have had Herbert for years and he's doing good. I do a pretty good job of keeping orchids alive too. But outdoor plants, any other plants, they don't stand a chance. I feel bad for them and don't want to bring them home because I know they won't survive.

5. Waiting -- I hate waiting. I'm so bad at it. I try to rush things and push things along. I get impatient and just want to stop waiting. I feel like I'm stuck in a waiting period right now. It's not all bad mind you and I'm not wishing my life away. But trying to get pregnant is a whole bunch of waiting. This is a hard one to wait one. Especially right now since we had to sit out a cycle. I really hate waiting. Like I said, I'm really really really bad at it!
