things you may or may not know about snails

It's honesty Tuesday here at Musings of a Snail! (yeah, I just made that up)

1. I'm terrible in the kitchen. My food usually comes out tasting ok, but I make such a mess, I rush everything, burn lots of things, start fires, you know, the usual.

2. I eat a lot of macaroni and cheese. A LOT. The organic kind, though!

3. I never exercise. Partially because I haven't gained more than 2 pounds since 9th grade, and partially because I hate it. HATE it. I know, I know...

4. The earthquake in Haiti, my mom's death at age 48, and just contemplating humanity in general makes me question the goodness of a God I was brought up to love and worship.

5. I miss my mom most when I'm happy.

6. I feel scatter-brained almost all the time. It's Josh that pulls me together.

7. Sometimes I read the end of a book, just to make sure it ends happily- it's not worth my time if it doesn't.

8. I'm cold. All the freakin' time. I wear leggings under my pants every day (the thick kind, not stockings), and at least two shirts. It has to be at least 55 degrees out for me to not wear two pairs of pants. The other day my sister was over and she asked, "Why are you wearing two shirts?" To which I replied, "I think you mean, why WOULDN'T I wear two shirts???" Duh.

(A typical Josh and Abby picture- me freezing to death, and Josh not even wearing a coat, hole in the jeans and NO extra layer underneath. Ahh!)

Welp, that's the real me. What don't I know about YOU??!

This was a great post. I love exercise, but I suck at doing it consistently over long periods of time. And I need it because I have gained weight since ninth grade. I'm so sorry to hear about your mom, I could understand missing her most when you are happy, that makes sense to me.

x, ash

i like when you make mistakes in the kitchen b/c it makes me feel less badly about having NO homemaking skills at all :)
