1. Going to Sleep
When I take a nap during the day I can only sleep on my right side. But when I go to sleep at night I have to start out on my back. If I can't get to sleep instead of counting sheep I try to name the capitals of all 50 states. I can never remember Missouri (Jefferson City).
2. My Good Side
Photogenic is not how I would generally describe myself in photos. I do like some photos of me, but I think my face looks really asymmetrical. I tend favor the left side of my face because my mouth looks fuller, my teeth look straighter, and that eye is more open; plus I think my nose looks more "stuck-up" on the right side. I know I am being too self-critical; I don't notice such things with other people.
3. Magazine Hording
We recycle big time in our household. I can't help but feel a little guilty anytime I throw something away because it cannot be recycled. We are good at sorting through stuff and giving old clothes to Goodwill. There is, however, one weakness that I have ... magazines. I LOVE magazines! I have piles of them everywhere because I keep buying them but don't get rid of the old ones. For some reason I can't convince myself that I probably won't need that article on how to make my own marbled paper or what jeans Nicole Kidman preferred to wear in 2003. I know, I'm sick.
I think ironing is enjoyable. I do. I like to starch my shirts and I find a great sense of accomplishment out of ironing my jeans. The problem is that I don't like to set up the ironing board, therefore ironing doesn't get done very often. I know, what is so hard about setting up the ironing board, right? Nothing. I just feel very unmotivated to walk into the laundry room, take the board down off the wall, unfold it and plug in the iron. I have no excuse for my laziness.
5. Coca Cola
It was tough at first to break myself of the habit of having a can of pop everyday. I just stopped buying it and decided to force myself to drink Perrier or Pellegrino instead - it's fizzy without the sickly sweet syrup. There are times when I HAVE to have a good bit of Coca Cola. When I eat Kraft macaroni and cheese Cherry Coke is a must and drinking water with most fast food just doesn't cut it. After consuming the vile liquid I always feel a little guilty for putting it in my body ... but it tastes so good!
