No Thank You Very Much

Contrary to your belief in me (ha, yea right), I am absolutely not perfect at everything that I do. In fact, I am terrible at quite a few things. For your convenience, I have narrowed down to 5 things that I suck at.

1. Texting.
I dunno why, but lately I've really been a slacker when it comes to texting. I usually just glance at the preview of the message on my lock screen and then think to myself, "I'll write back in a minute." Then 5 hours goes by and I am suddenly nominated as the World's Worst Texter Ever.

2. Taking a compliment.
I often times think nice things in my head about someone's outfit, or their hair, or their makeup, or just their overall awesomeness... however, I rarely give compliments. Not only do I feel awkward when I give compliments, but I feel awkward when receiving them. I always feel like I have to justify myself. If someone says, "I love your dress," I tend to comeback with, "I got it at XYZ store and it was $20." Very matter of fact, thank you very much. I am sooo weird.

3. Dealing with Negative Nancy's.
Just stop it right now and take a chill pill, pa-lease. What could possibly be so wrong that you have to suck the life outta everyone else around you? Ain't nobody got time for that.

4. Consistently doing the dishes.
I have never claimed, "I rock at household chores!" Because that would be a lie. I happen to be really good at keeping up with the laundry and maintaining our carpet (vacuuming & deep cleaning), but other than that, no thank you very much. The dishes in the Skinner household consistently pile up beyond all logical reason. If only I had a child that could do the dishes for me. #kidding #imakemyselflaugh

5. Exercising. 
We've owned a treadmill ever since we built our house. I swore that I'd never become one of those people who use the treadmill as a prop... yet here I am to admit that I'm one of them. I mean... how lazy can someone (me) be??? I have a treadmill in the comfort of my own home, yet I barely even touch the thang. That changes soon. Unless I'm pregnant in the near future. In which case, I'll pass.

  1. Negative Nancies are the WORST! I recently had to let go of a friend because everything was always the WORST, or horrible or you can't imagine what I have to deal with wah wah. And it was just meetings, dealing with people at work and just everyday life stuff. Not something to whine about. Way too draining for me.

    I'm bad at receiving compliments too. Great at giving them, horrible at receiving them.

  4. I tend to be the same way about receiving compliments, the justifying that is..."Oh it was on sale!" or "It's from Target!" I do try to give them out to people though.
    Honey Boo-Boo texting...hilarious.
    Dishes...I sat my self on the couch last night while my husband did them. I didn't feel too bad about it since I did them the day before. I'm like you though - hate it. But at the same time I hate when they pile up!? I'm much more of a "load as you go" type gal but my hubby, not so much.

  9. I'm the worst with dishes, too! I'm pretty OCD about the rest of my apartment but the dishes always seem to pile up until I finally just throw them all in the dishwasher and call it a day haha

  10. I have zero tolerance for negative nancy's. Like I am straight up rude to them. It's a problem. You are not alone on the compliment thing either!

  12. I'm pretty bad at the compliment thing too. Every time someone compliments me on my Michael Kors purse I feel the need to tell them "I didn't pay full price and I got it at Steinmart and they should go sometime because they have a lot of cheap Michael Kors stuff, oh and my sunglasses are Michael Kors too and they were only $30".....yep...awkward.

  13. I find it hard to take compliments, too! I feel so ridiculous, like why do I have to justify it? Glad I'm not alone :)
