On a slow day...

Kind of like, "On a clear day... you can see forever" (name that Musical.)

Except that it's not.

It's me, being trendy (which I hate) and doing the Facebook thingy. Except it's on my blog. AND facebook. HA! So without further ado, I give you:

25 Random Things about Morgan

1. I skipped a grade. My senior year of high school. It’s NOT because I’m smart.

2.I am possibly the most insecure person on the planet. But, I have come to grips with “me” and that being insecure is part of that.

3.I want 7 kids, but every time I get pregnant, I question it. Then, I have the baby and do it all over again. And I love it.

4.I got married at the age of 19, and I have never for one minute regretted it. BEST decision I have ever made.

5.If I could, I’d just go act on Broadway and sing my heart out.

6.Being a mother is the danged hardest, most wonderful, painful thing I have ever done. And I love it. Hence why I am not a Broadway performer. (This is of course NOT the only reason I’m not…)

7.I am a crunchy-wannabe. As in, I still eat fast food. And I shop at Wal-mart. But I dream of living au naturale. Except, with a razor...

8.I have extreme views on parenting. And I don’t make excuses for it. You don’t have to like it, but they are MY kids. Do whatever YOU want with YOUR kids. (Don’t fret, I don’t keep them in cages or anything, but I do let them sleep in my bed… GASP!)

9.I can not handle soggy carbohydrates. Bread, toast, pancakes, whatever. Soggy is not consumable or touchable. GAGAGAGAG!

10.I am an ANTI-procrastinator. Not doing something is torture for me. DO IT! DO IT NOW!

11. I’m a doula. And it is an AMAZING job. Seriously. Don’t know what they are? Google it. 2nd hardest job I’ve ever had.

12.I am a workaholic, something I didn’t know until my mother pointed it out to my husband. And I denied it, but I knew it was true. I am. Whatever my job is, I do it and I do it A LOT and I do AWESOME. I was literally the best danged BUSSER the Spaghetti Factory ever had. EVER! Worst job in the world, but I rocked it. When I was in the “workforce” I would arrive at work, terrified that my voicemail or email would contain something that I had missed, screwed up, etc. It’s totally all-consuming. Motherhood is the only job that I have yet to achieve “awesome.”

13. I wrote a book. A novel. And with three chapters left, I decided I hated it and quit writing it. (The book, not writing. I love writing. But my novel sucked, big time.)

14. I am paranoid about body odor. My own and others. I can not stand the thought of being stinky.

15. I pray every single day, multiple times. My faith gets me through everything that I struggle with.

16. I fight the tendency to be paranoid and terrified of everything. Which is where #15 comes it.

17.I love to eat junk. I would all the time. But, I am so completely obsessed with my weight that I don’t.

18. My husband is absolutely my favorite person in the world. We are a great team, and I miss him when he’s not home. My kids are a close (very close, overlapping 2nd). We still talk until WAYYYYY too late at night most nights.

19.I am extremely sensitive, but not about myself. It takes A LOT to hurt me, but when others hurt, I bawl like a baby. I just feel SO bad for them, it hurts my heart.

20. I was born in Germany and when I was little, I thought that made me EXTREMELY cool.

21. I have never had any kind of dental work done, other than cleanings. I had one “filling” done that was actually a sealing replaced and no numbing was needed.

22. I have never had an IV or a drug stronger than Ibuprofen in my life. I’m afraid what I would behave like… it’d be embarrassing.

23. I am terrible at all sports and all visual art.

24..I am completely flat-footed. NO arch. It makes shoes… difficult.
25.This took me WAYYYY too long and with WAYYYY too much thought.

Weird...I skipped my senior year too. I can't believe you are insecure, Morgan? You want to be on Broadway? In college, the theater professor pulled me aside and flat out told me not to ever act, so I feel pretty insecure too.
I am the same about pills too! I rarely take anything, even for pain. I love your Random things Morgan.

Just remember Boo, every novel sucks until it's been rewritten for the 3rd, 4th, or 5th time. Or however many times it takes to evolve into an awsome novel. Your final novel may not even look like it's original but every ideration carries it to the next level. Don't give up.

Thanks for all the wonderful insights about Morgan. If I could add one it would be that she's an absolutely wonderful daughter who I love more than I can say and is a total delight and blessing in my life. Proof positive that not all blessings are deserved.
Much Love,
Dad

Roxi- I remember talking to you about theater and that exact theater professor. Darn guy.

Thanks Daddy! I'm glad I can help. ;) Love you too.

Thanks Boo for the info. It's kind of cool to see how much of me you inherited (flat feet, insecurity, workaholic, love to write...)
