Who Am I?

Who am I? Depends on the day , the time of month and of course who you ask.

One day I can be Pollyanna only seeing the bright side of every thing. The next I am Cruella ready to steal your puppies right out from under you.

This week Mamakat had us ask a loved one to use 6 words to describe us and report back as one of our prompts for Wednesday Workshop.

I decided the best person to ask would be my sweet, loving, wonderful husband. Who knows me better than him right? The most wonderful words would trip right off his tongue. Right? Wrong.

He. had. to. think. before. he. answered.

When he did answer this is what he had to say...........

1. Energetic- So what, I'm the energizer bunny running around like crazy never stopping? I do admit I can get a lot done in a day and I don't need a lot of sleep but pink was never my color.

2. Thorough- OK can you say anal retentive? I have to have everything (and I mean everything planned out to the minute. I am so organized that when we are going on a trip I am packed 1 1/2 weeks before and would have the suitcases in the car if my husband would let me drive around with them.

3. Resourceful- OK so I was a Girl Scout and could probably build a fire by rubbing two sticks together. Is there a crime in this?

4. Loving- Thank God he threw this one in there or the man might have ended up dead or divorced. Yes I do love him just kidding.

5. Thoughtful- I think about myself all the time. (That's a joke people.) I also think about shopping and how many new pairs of shoes or how many new purses I can buy.

6. Humble- I am truly humbled by how well my husband knows me and yet still loves me. Most people, myself included would have left me by now after all this.

When my evil twin creeps out, shows herself and starts acting like this, my husband puts his arms around me, tells me he loves me and brings me back down to earth. Then I truly am all of the above words he used to describe me and deserve them all.

Head over to Mamkats and describe yourself in six words or less

I think thorough is his way of saying OCD!

I didn't ask my husband, instead I asked my 13yo son, big mistake! I should have asked my 9 yo son, then the words would have been correct!

Diane said...

Energetic, thorough, and resourceful are good! Of course, it would have been better had 'loving' been listed first. But he's a guy, so what can you REALLY expect, eh? ;)

Debbie said...

He did a very nice job describing you. I can't speak to all six of them since I don't live with you but you are very thoughtful and loving.

Visiting from Mama Kat's...

This was a fun prompt, wasn't it? I would take your six words over mine any day! I think you made out like a bandit!

I don't think you should ever discourage a man who thinks before he talks.
Maybe you could rub some of that energy and anal retentiveness off on me... I'm already on board with the shoe love.

I didn't think those were so bad...of course, this is coming from someone who avoided that prompt all together... LOL

blueviolet said...

Those are good qualities and I'm jealous! lol

Dan said...

It seems that any male who answer this question for his spouse ran a good chance of falling ill with partial "doghouseitis". I wonder why?

No where near as bad as they could have been.

And your next assignment, since you chose to accept it, is the letter M.

I think that's a good list!! The fact they had to really think killed me too! The worst was that mine had to think that hard and then came up with WHINY! I'd take energetic over whiny any day of the week!
