Thirteen Things about Ginger

1. I tend to 'over' explain - I'm finding lately that others sometimes have trouble seeing things from any other point of view than their own - or when they agree with you, they still want to explain the subject matter differently - almost like arguing - and I find it frustrating. Why can't people just agree?

2. I think I struggle most in getting along with people who feel they must control their surroundings. My hubs is a tad controlling - and when he gets a bit over zealous is when our personalities clash. I'm a big girl, I can handle myself, thank you very much.

3. My neighbor is very controlling - I mean, if you tell her the sky is blue, she'll argue with you until the cows come home - because she knows better - and she proudly states to anybody who will listen, that she's not happy unless she's in control of everything in her life. It's kind of scary. I just smile and nod politely.

I know she thinks I'm a little whacky - so I guess we're even. :)

4. I'm excited to remove the screens from our front porch.. It's totally screened off, which has proven very effective when we want to eat outside - but we dont' use it much and I think it takes away from the 'look' of my house. Today, I will start removing the screen with Hubby's electric screwdriver :)

5. I'm also excited to get my kitchen remodeled. I've been looking into what I want and given my estimates and materials to Hubs - last night he told me he's working on it and it will be done soon. I cannot WAIT! Later, 70s kitchen from hell. :)

6. I beleive that every bad experience in my life is a blessing in disguise - it's just hard to know, in the moment, what the blessing is.

7. The gardners are coming today with all the flowers I picked out at the nursery! I'm excited to see the colors in my yard.

8. I'm a pretty simple person except in one area - men. My love life has always been very complicated and I think it's always going to be complicated. I'm lucky my husband loves me for who I am because I think I'm hard for a man to love. Who really knows.

9. I'm really independent and sometimes have a hard time letting my husband take care of me.

10. I think I found son a new babysitter - right down the street. I'm going to meet her today or tomorrow. That's inspiring to me since his now sitter recently told me she's moving 1/2 hour away.

11. Summer is almost here.. the weather is warming up and my attitude is slowly becoming better. Whew.

12. I had to really struggle today to post my 13 - my mind is really focused elsewhere right now. But, that's okay.

13. I think I'm coming out of my recent funk. I hope so. I've been sort of 'off' lately... uh, really off.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy T13!
