A few of my blogger friends have done posts in the past dishing out the dirt on what they are bad at. I have found their posts to be hilarious and relate-able After all the best way to get over your “flaws” is to confront them face to face by putting them out there for everyone to see… right?
Well, it’s worth a shot.
Here is my list of 5 things that I am bad at:
This isn’t exactly a secret.
Using proper punctuation and correctly enunciating words is a real life struggle for me. Dusty writing skills and Kansas roots are what I cast the blame on. Over the past year I have tried to improve my skills in this department, but I still make some pretty epic mistakes. Is it sad that I really look forward to tackling grammar in homeschool?! It will be a lovely and much needed refresher course.
2. Cooking Poultry
Baking, crock pot, grilling you name it. I am unpredictable.
One day it will be so dry it resembles National Lampoons Christmas dinner. The next meal it is so under cooked you are worried that you may get sick if you eat it. I have tried using meat thermometers but nothing really seems to help. I never know where to put them in or I melt them on the grill (Oh yes I did). I really just need some sort of thermal scanner that says done or raw.
3.Whistling & Snapping
Things I just can’t do.
Why I can’t do either is beyond me but I can’t no matter how much I practice.
4. Cleaning the Bathroom
Specifically the shower.
As and OCD, clean house loving, can’t stand a mess kind of gal, I have some pretty dirty showers. I HATE cleaning showers. I will scrub toilets, clean sinks, clean the stove and literally scrub a floor on my hands and knees. But getting me to scrub the shower takes a lot of convincing.
I often worry that company may peek in the shower while they are in the bathroom and judge my cleanliness by my bad shower cleaning skills/habit.
5. The Budget
It isn’t that I am bad a making a budget or even staying within a budget.
I am TERRIBLE at keeping up with a budget. I let 2/3 weeks go by and then find myself in panic mode or complaining about the mess I am in and how long it is going to take me to straighten it all back out. You think I would learn, but I don’t. In fact what should I really be doing right now instead of writing this blog post?… You guessed it!
There you have it guys. 5 areas where I am far from perfect.
Now it’s your turn to air your dirty laundry and give up your secrets.
What are you bad at?
