The Happyish Homestead

Monday, May 24, 2010


Some of you might think that the title is my age, but you would be wrong.

25 things about me that are true, but I wish they weren't:
  1. I have a big nose, and it's only going to keep getting bigger.

  2. Sometimes I yell at my kids.

  3. I am not patient.

  4. Not every idea of mine is a good idea.

  5. I have no more money for home improvement stuff.

  6. I'm frustrated that no one told me how great short hair is.

  7. I can't grow corn for the life of me. I can grow the stalks, can't grow the ears.

  8. I let my kids watch one movie a day.

  9. Sometimes if I'm changing Meg and I get a little bit of residue gets on the new diaper, I just wipe it off, rather than getting a whole new diaper.

  10. I haven't read a book or finished a quilt in weeks.

  11. I watched New Moon, it was awful.

  12. I check my e-mail obsessively.

  13. I crave root beer, and then when I have a 2 liter in the fridge and I forget it's there.

  14. I'm lazy about cleaning my bathrooms.

  15. The garage smells like diarrhea diapers. This isn't about me, but I'm guilty by association.

  16. I haven't finished registering Elizabeth for kindergarten.

  17. I like Twinkies, I know they're awful for you and are made from a bunch of fake stuff, but I don't care.

  18. I'm an indifferent seamstress.

  19. Not a perfectionist in the least.

  20. I've watched High School Musical a couple of times and liked it.

  21. I'm probably going to stink up the 100 6 week push up challenge.

  22. I'm slightly terrified of the snakes that are living in our yard, not that I don't appreciate their skills.

  23. Sometimes I'm a horrible daughter, mom, wife, and/or friend.

  24. I can be terribly selfish.

  25. I like to sleep in till 7am.

That was harder to talk about myself than I thought it was going to be. I'm usually good at that kind of thing.

A side note, this was a Monday post and I didn't once mention painting. Well, until now...



  1. p.s.--don't wear and red shirt and khakis ever...Target totally ruined that trend.

    Happy Monday! Our baby brother is graduating today...I was hoping for a "here's all the terrible things we did to Andy as a child...surprising he turned out to be well adjusted" post...sigh... :)

  2. I love reading your posts Katie, they totally make my day!!! :)
