I saw this at January One who was tagged by another. A list of 10 aspects in your life beginning with a random letter assigned to you. Since I’m doing this without being tagged, I’ll copy the letter P. Hmm, let’s see how I do.
1. Potty Training. My littlest is almost 4, and is resisting all efforts of becoming a diaper-free child. Probably TMI, but I’m a stay-home mom.
2. Potholes. If you live the Seattle area, you know what I’m talking about. The huge holes on the streets that look like they can swallow whole Metro buses. The sneaky smaller ones that make you dribble your drink down yourself.
3. Procrastination. I’m a great procrastinator. Just ask the hordes of people waiting for handknit things promised months ago.
4. The 7 P’s. Proper Prior Planning Prevents P— Poor Performance. Learned it from a co-worker of my husband’s who was in the military. Straight, simple, and to the point. I try to follow it.
5. Perfection. Not here, that’s for sure. I like my knitting to look neat, but I’m bad at making proper gauge swatches prior to starting projects.
6. “Pretty in Pink”. One of my favorite movies of all times. Of course, I’m fond of most John Hughes movies from this era.
7. Patterns. Love ’em if they’re well-written, not so much if they’re vague. I’m not really brave enough yet to design my own, but if a pattern’s well-written, I can tink with it forever and a day.
8. Pictures. I don’t think I look good in photos, even when disregarding the extra weight I have. I can count on one hand the number of photos that I’ve ever been happy with. This would be the reason my profile has a butterfly frog instead of a pic.
9. Plastic. Plastic has it’s uses, like debit cards for those of us who don’t carry cash. But not for grocery bags. I can’t count the times I’ve seen them flying down the road at me or waving shredded from trees.
10. Pullman, WA. I went to WSU from 96-02, didn’t graduate. But I did meet my husband and start my family there. And even now, four and a half years later, I still think of it as “home”. I liked the way it was bigger than my hometown, smaller than a major city, and Summer was the calm season.
Bonus P: Project. I have completed the Fiber Trends Baby Basics pattern. It’s now drying and waiting to be photographed.
If you read this and decide it’s fun, my letter to you is L.
