Yes, that’s me. It’s probably my best and worst trait all wrapped into one. If I know I’ve got something to do, I am not going to postpone-I’m going to do it right this very minute.
This could also be why I end up with my “free” time at 9 pm every night now. I go downstairs, sit on the couch with NewHusband (who is not so new anymore, but it’s what you know him as) and reach behind me to the stand near the sofa and grab the glass of my favorite Argentina malbec he’s had “airing” for me while I tuck the princess in. So although I don’t really go out dancing anymore, each night home is exactly what I look forward to every night. I never, never thought that would be appealing. Or that I would look forward to it so strongly. But I do.
As an aside, B wanted to have some recognition of Earth Day and we decided to start our own tradition. We walked a mile around our development picking up trash on both sides of the street. For a nice neighborhood, there sure were a lot of cigarette butts. We took a pictoral representation of the results, I’ll load a few here. And yes, my girl has some interesting clothes on…a plaid jacket, plaid skirt and argyle rain boots. But for her, it just works.
