Random Facts About ......ME!
I'm seeing so many posts reflecting on all that 2020 has delivered on people's doorsteps this year, and because I've already done a few of those, I thought it would be fun to write about something a little more personal.....ME!
In no particular order, here are the most random facts that you may or may not know about me:
I've always been a morning person - as in, up by 6:00 a.m. - even as a kid
I don't like mushy food. I need some crunch.
I drink coffee first thing every morning, but sometimes I actually get tired of it.
My morning routine is to get coffee, sit at my desk - write, create, and read my Bible.
I can't read if there is any type of noise going on.
I had the same cat from first grade to my senior year.
I competed in the Miss Teen of Texas pageant in 1984.
I love the music of Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn.
I kill plants.
I hate spiders and heights and hiking.
My love language is quality time.
I hate talking to people who are looking at their phone or aren't making eye contact.
I don't do fake. Especially in people.
I like giving better than receiving.
I enjoy being behind the scenes much more than being out front.
I have super high expectations of everyone, including myself. It's not a good thing.
I was once on a committee called The Committee on Committees. Dumbest thing ever.
I only like chicken if it's shredded.
I prefer savory breakfast over sweet.
The internet has given me overload of the brain for several years now.
I prefer old-school blogging over the current social media status.
I don't identify as any denomination. I'm a Christian - follower of Jesus. Religion is man-made. Just my opinion.
I enjoy worship over a sermon, any day. Preachers who don't like music......no. I don't get it.
I cry at weddings and baptisms. Every single time.
I love the conversations I have with my grand girls. I wish I had a recording of all of the talks we've had.
I prefer taking pictures of objects, rather than people.
I don't do selfies.
I'm never the one to tell people about my book. My husband always brings it up, which is embarrassing and yet, sweet.
I've owned a camera since I was a kid and used to send my pictures off to a company called YORK,
using my allowance. I always got double prints. My camera was the Kodak 110, with a flip flash. Oh yeah!
Every time I buy a new gadget, I end up giving it to my kids (bye bye Apple watch).
I don't press all the buttons in my car. In fact, I get a new car, learn the very basic functions and drive it. I never explore all the options. (This applies to electronics and large appliances too. Hence the Apple Watch situation).
I don't make resolutions any more because I can't be trusted to follow through. Same goes for yearly goals. I finally learned to accept this flaw in myself and I'm ok with it.
I change planners every few months and when the day comes that my kids have to clean out my stuff, they will find multiple planners, notebooks, journals, etc. that are 1/4 of the way used up and hopefully they can piece together my life like a jigsaw puzzle, because I've tried to change and I can't.
And there you have it! Random facts that make up some of who I am.
I hope you have a great New Year! We all know 2020 can be greatly improved upon and yet, I felt the move of God this year too.
More on that later.
Until next time.....
