Bad Blog

Folks, I truly didn’t mean to have all my work displayed for an entire week so that you could compliment me and tell me about how great I am and about how many people I’m going to bring to the Lord through my ministry of photography. So because of that I’m going to take some time to share with you all the things I’m not good at…

I’m pretty bad at keeping up with the dishes. Are you surprised? Don’t get me wrong. I do them. But not before there is a large pile and it bleeds onto the countertops… I’m also not too good at keeping animals alive. They don’t all die… I. am. horrible. at. sending. thank. you. notes. Even my mom can vouch for me on that one. What’s the point, though? 90% of the time I’ve already thanked them in person! …One time I even woke my husband up from the nap I gave him permission to take to ask him what I was bad at because I couldn’t remember anything… I am bad at taking bad pictures. That’s for sure… I’m bad at calling people. I don’t like picking up the phone when I have a million other things I should be doing… I’m not good at keeping a schedule for my children. I know it’s the best environment for them but I figure, what’s the fun in that? Let’s mix it up and be crazy!

…I have a long list but I don’t want you to know all of them! And just so you know, this is not a ploy to obtain more compliments. Just take it all in and allow this information to balance out the great things you’ve learned about me thus far. For aren’t we all really the same? A little salt, a little pepper… A little sugar… Some just have more than others…


whew! I did it! I thought that was going to be a hard one!

one of the good things about being human is that, while I am not as good as you in the picture area, I am good at some things you aren't. I just don't know what yet :)

i think we should make this confession time...what am i bad at?
i dont like making decisions that dont matter. (neither eric or i care where we go to eat for lunch, so we take hours to decide and are pissed by the end of it.)
im bad at doing laundry. but eric is bad at folding it, so he washes and drys it and i fold it.
im bad at washing my face before i go to bed. the whole reason im going to sleep is because im really tired, the last thing i feel like doing it putting water on my face and waking up.

I'm really bad at waking up. Why, just this morning I hit the snooze for an hour. Then, upon remembering I had an early, work meeting that I would be later for, I let out an expletive that woke my wife and scared the dog. I suck.

Lisa said...

I am also reallllly bad about waking up. Just ask dodyb, and poor little rolo.... i will hit the snooze for as long as it takes. waking up enough to change the time is too much, its easier to hit snooze. I am also bad at procrastination... or i guess im good at that, so im bad about doing things before the last minute. i am also bad at calling friends, and emailing. and im bad at dusting...i.hate.it.

I am bad at being woken up from a nap to help my wife brainstorm what she sucks at so she can write about it on her blog. I don't know why I get so angry when she does that? I am also really bad about remember birthdays of my family. Like others who have posted, I also suck at waking up, except on Sundays. There are other things I suck at...everyone knows what they are so feel free to confess them for me.

Ben said...

CRAP! I also suck at posting comments! Jen didn't post that...I did.

Jess said...

I am bad at being organized...I mean real bad at it. Infact I try constantly to learn how to do it...so I think about it a lot, just never really get my thoughts organized enough to get it all going. I am also bad at cleaning up after myself. Ask my husband, I am a slug. Anything else...Hmmm...Jen this post is depressing!

tara said...

jess, i dont think youre as unorganized as you think...kind of like how marme thinks shes such a horrible listener...i dont think that at all! (im trying to turn these post, that are gettting mildly depressing, into something good)
the next comment will be like..."im bad at loving jesus" or "im bad at not killing babies"

Rizzle said...

You called me on it tara. I am bad at not killing babies. I feel like a fool for never saying it before. But its true.

I think that I might write a blog that will have us share what others (or ourselves) are good at. Maybe that would be a nice conclusion to everyone saying what they suck at.
