I'm In Need Of Some R&R

8.22.2013
This whole race thing is wearing me out y'all. I can barely type I'm so tired. Maybe an ice cold beer will make me feel better? Yes, yes I think it will. Hold on.

Ahhh yes I feel somewhat happier. At least I feel as if my fingers might make it through this post. Speaking of beer, guess what I found yesterday. A gas station that has beer on tap and sells it in growlers. Ahhhmazeballs. I went home with two full growlers. It's going to be a long week, but maybe a happier one now. Don't judge me.

Anywho, back to the subject of this post. I really don't have one. I have been so caught up in the craziness of this race that all my mind can think about is sleeeeep. Or the fact that I'm not getting much of it.

Perhaps I'll share 5 quirks about myself? Yep, sounds good.

Here goes 5 things you would never know unless your a friend or family. So consider yourself a friend of mine after you have read these.

One: I can't stand not having my nails painted. Fingers and toes must be colored at all times or I feel as if I'm standing in my front lawn butt naked yelling, "hey, hey neighbors! Look at me! I'm naked!" It makes me extremely uncomfortable.

Two: I despise my natural curly locks. Most pictures you will ever see of me my hair will be straightened or curled with an iron. Natural curls make me uncomfortable. I see other girls embrace it and I'm like man their hair looks like they just stepped off the beach. Mine does not. No, mine looks like I have stepped into one of those machines that blow money around you while you fail miserably at catching any of it.

 I guess it could be worse...it could look like this most days

Tres: I speak pretty dang good Spanish. I should after taking 4 years of it in high school (even though that was awhile ago) and working at Chick-fil-A for 4 years with an entirely Hispanic kitchen. I wouldn't say I'm fluent, but I can hold a conversation.

Four: I secretly want to have a full sleeve of tattoos, wear red lipstick everyday and dress in high-waisted shorts and heels. I have a thing for the whole "pin-up" style. Not like a thing for pin-up girls or anything. That just sounds wrong. I'm straight. Married to a man. Ugh I'm digging my hole deeper. Anyway maybe my Pinterest board could explain it better.

Five: I was going to be a Police Officer. I graduated, was offered a job at my dream dept. and turned it down to marry Jon. He proposed just after I graduated. I moved states and gave up the career I had dreamed about and worked really hard for. It took a lot of prayer and I know I am in the right place now, but it took a long time to understand why I went through what I did and not come out an officer. At the time I thought I did it for nothing. I saw it as a waste of time and money. It took 4 months for me to understand why I did it. Four months after I graduated I saved a woman's life and everything made sense. God had the master master plan like always. I'll save that story for another day :)

My beer glass is empty so my fingers are done moving. Off to go get that rest and relaxation. Goodnight loves.

  1. Heh heh! This is great! :D
    I wish I could speak fluent (or even semi-fluent) Spanish! My Mum does, because she grew up in Chile, and I took it at school for a bit, but I wish I had taken it for more time than I did. Totally jealous! :)
    I need to have my fingers painted all the time too :)
