DSP Daisy: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I almost never get caught up on laundry. (I could easily remove the word “almost”)

I almost always plan on changing out of my workout clothes, shower and put on nice daytime clothes, but it usually doesn’t happen until bedtime, and then I just put on PJ’s.

I will NOT eat another Goldfish Cracker. I have overdosed on those little, crunchy, orange fish. Makes me gag just thinking about them. UGH!

It would be wrong to think that just because I truly LOVE being a stay-at-home mom, I don’t ever wish I could be working in an office, having stimulating adult conversation instead of cleaning up sticky hands and sorting dirty laundry. (I know I am lucky to be able to stay at home, but sometimes the grass looks a little greener on the other side.)

Character flaw: I am hoping my husband won’t read this one, but I am a bit of martyr. I tend to tell everyone I will do it all, and won’t let anyone help me. But then when I get overwhelmed, I almost demand sympathy, or an extra pat on the back for my great sacrifice. Man, that was hard to admit.

I always knew I would be a mom.

I’m afraid of people just dropping by my house and wondering if I ever clean up. I swear no one stops by on the one day a week it is actually clean!

One time I told my family I was running errands, but actually went to a movie all by myself and ate a whole bag of popcorn and a large soda. (Felt guilty for a week!) Now I just tell them I need a break and there is no fibbing or guilt necessary.

I wish I could quit negatively comparing myself to other moms who seem to have it all together. I am a work in progress. Embracing being a DSP helps a lot. Now I focus on finding what fits for me and my family!

First car was so old the Triple A Towing Company knew me by voice when I would call them to jump my car or tow it to the shop.

I was born to make a difference in the world, even if it nothing earth shattering. I know it in my gut.

Habits I dislike most in people Spitting on the sidewalk and littering; especially cigarettes. Hello people, those butts do count as garbage.

My worst habit is flossing my teeth in bed and leaving the floss on the night stand. My husband thinks it’s repulsive. Hey, at least I have good dental hygiene and I do throw it away in the morning. (Most of the time.) : (

True love is the feeling I get when my dog looks at me.

I feel the most ‘myself’ when I have a few quiet moment in the morning before everyone gets up to sit in my pajamas, drink coffee and read. No one needs me, it’s quiet and it’s my time. Sigh.

Three words to describe me distracted, loving, and funny. (At least I cracked myself up.)

Three people (dead or alive) that would make the BEST dinner party – God (OK, I know that’s a big one, but I have a lot of questions.) Ellen DeGeneres (She was so funny and could help keep things a bit lighter.) Taylor Swift (Because my daughter LOVES her and I would get major cool mom bonus points. And she also could provide dinner music.)

Hollywood actor who would play me – Melissa McCarthy. She is funny and didn’t change herself just to be a star. I admire her for staying true to herself.

There’s no good way to pull off a bandage. So just suck it up and rip it off. (I have said this multiple times to my children.)

One day I will learn to surf.

Right now, I am staring at the blinking curser on my computer, realizing it is almost dinner time and I do not have a thing thawed out. Crap.

Bonus: Here are two truths and one lie about DSP Daisy. Can you pick out the lie?

1. I can operate industrial woodworking equipment and have made my own furniture.

2. I can tie the stem of a cherry with my tongue in three seconds flat.

3. I have dove deeper than 100 feet SCUBA diving.
