Fun Monday

Sauntering Soul is our wonderful hostess this week.....thank you so much for volunteering!!! Here is her assignment:

Come on - it's confession time! List the small things you do that make you a jerk and elaborate just a bit on each one. Please tell me I'm not the only jerk around here!

Don't are definitely not the only jerk around here!!!

Well, I will try and keep this post short!!!, but I am not sure that will be possible!! I thought about asking my family for their opinion, but then I thought better of it. This post may go on forever if they put their 2 cents in!!

Here is my list of "jerkiness":

*I tend to judge people from the outside before getting to know them....I am wrong almost all of the time

*I tend towards impatience when it comes to my children and my husband, I am working on this.

*I err on the lazy side, would much rather be blogging or reading than working!!

*I hide my chocolate treats from my family.

*I pass gas frequently.

*I am told that I snore, but I don't believe it.

*I can easily go into a state of denial and stay there!!!

I am sure there are tons more....but I can't for the life of me think of anymore!! I am sure if I sent an email out to everyone in my address book I would have many more bullet points....but I don't think I will!!! I think I would much rather focus on the positives, and work on the negatives.

I am sure there will be some wonderful posts on this subject so head on over to Sauntering Soul to see all the participants!!

Love your list...cute! I'd rather blog and read too! And talking about state of denial...I can keep you company there!

Happy Fun Monday!

Aoj & The Lurchers said...

Yep, I'm right there with you on hiding the chocolate!

IamwhoIam said...

Oh most of yours sound more human than a true Jerk - thanks for playing

Sayre said...

Boy, I can relate to more than one item on your list! I thought about asking my family too, but didn't want to hear what they'd say.... I'm a jerk that way.

Hootin' Anni said...

Hey, if you don't hide them from the family....there'd be no chocolate left for you, right? At least that would be my excuse.

Great Fun Monday

ChrisB said...

Great little list~ my family know where I hide the treats~blogging/snoring yes could be me!!

swampy said...

This isn't a Jerk List...this is just being "mornal"...see, I'm lysdexic early in the morning.
Now what did you do with my chocolate while I was sleeping/snoring?
Hey, for a giggle head back to my place for an Update...someone is stealing Fun Monday posts.

Don't feel bad about the passing gas thing. Dr. Oz says we all pass about 14 liters of it a day..most of us just don't admit it.

Karmyn R said...

Hiding the chocolate is not being a jerk - no is self-preservation at its finest!!!!! haha

jennifer said...

Listen, it's just NOT NICE to publish people's secrets on the internet...How did you know all of those things about me?

Wow, we are A LOT alike. Excuse me while I light a match.


storyteller said...

Many of the items on your list ‘resonate’ with my younger self and #3 hits home right now! Alas, I do snore and know it ;--) My Fun Monday post is at Small Reflections today.
Hugs and blessings.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee, I am just like that, right down to the chocolate hiding. :D

Faye said...

I'm totally impressed that you admit to frequent "pressure failures"! Jerks, just do it and let everyone else be blamed. . .

P.S. My tardy FM post is up now. Yes, I'm a jerk for making people check twice!

Hootin' Anni said...

to answer your question....nah, Bud expects things I do to him and have done over the years.

I just read your adoption post above and it made me cry! so, so beautiful alison!!!

Sauntering Soul said...

Awesome list! My office-mate who sits approximately 4 feet from me brings out the can of air freshener several times a day. I'm going to tell her she's a jerk. :-)

Chrys said...

roflrol, oh my goodness! keepin' it real!LOL

nekked Lizard Man said...

this sounds very familiar - however the road to recovery begins with acceptance. I do a lot of things in my sleep I am accused of as well.

Peter said...

Hiding chocolates = normal.
Snoring = lies.
Being lazy = necessary.
Passing gas = sneaky.

Pamela said...

good traits we share. (:

our happy happenings said...

I'm definitley way too impatient with my family too. And the chocolate- I hide that too ;)

Patience-please said...

It's a great list! Who wouldn't rather blog and read than work???
