I Have Been Challenged

So, Brandee chose me to post seven things about myself that no one knows and then I choose seven other bloggers to do the same! I don't personally know all of the bloggers on my blog roll but I will choose seven anyway.

Here goes!

1. My biggest pet peeve is ignorance. Pure ignorance in any form. It just angers me to my bones.

2. I am really bad at keeping my kitchen clean. I was before I was married and I was before I had a baby. Some weeks I'm good at keeping on top of it but most of the time it's all piled up by the weekend. Cleaning it is never as bad as I think it's going to be, though.

3. I love Autumn and Winter. I like Spring. I hate Summer. It's taken me years to realize this. Autumn has this crisp, cool breeze and produces the most beautiful colors that God has ever created. Winter brings snow - I especially like it when there is lots of it. I like being stuck inside not being able to go anywhere and my favorite is curling up in bed at night with LOADS of blankets on cozy! Spring has beautiful renewal and gorgeous flowers BUT it's also soggy and muddy and just plain wet. Summer is hot...need I say more?

4. I don't want to be "the perfect mom." I just want to be the best mom for my child(ren.)

5. I am horrible at sharing my feelings. I hate it. I find it really hard a lot of times. I don't know where this came from it's just something that I've always struggled with. I usually use other outlets instead (music, poetry, etc.)

6. I used to write a lot of poetry. When I was single I kept journals a lot and I was often jotting down poetry that came to mind. Even when I was first married I would a bit but I haven't in a long time. Not that I'm not inspired I find I just haven't the time...or I don't make the time. It is something that I would love to get back into.

7. Deep down inside me I know there is a runner. I can envision myself that way and I just long to be that woman. I have a goal to be a runner in 5 years. Not necessarily a marathon runner but a casual one; for exercise. I have a lot of weight to lose first and walking is a good gateway to running so that is where I need to start.

There you have it. Some things about me that you might not have known! Here are my seven:

1. Jen
2. Lindsay
3. Kayla
4. Rachael
5. Deanna
6. Joy
7. Julie

I love reading these too... And I can relate to all of those, with the exception #6 - I'm definitely not a poet! :) You should post some of your poems!

I clearly haven't checked my own blog or yours in awhile (where did the time go?!) because I just noticed your comments on my own blog and your challenge here, which I will get to! But if the offer still stands I would like some help re-arranging mine lol it does not look the way it does right now by choice!
