Hey, I am good at things!

Today I should be educating you on something that I am especially good at, and after dealing with some writer's block, asking Dean what I am good at, and texting a few friends, I have realized that the things I am good at are kind of hard to teach.  That or I am just a crappy teacher.  So, in typical Katie fashion, I will write you a list of things I am good at.

ONE.  I am great at what my co-workers have come to call "Office Charades".  I have this thing where I brain farts and forget what normal things are called, so I act them out.  For example, the stapler becomes "that paper-putter-together-thingy".  I will say that and make a stapling motion with my hands.  It's a great party trick.

TWO. I am a talented car dancer.  Okay, maybe I am not really.  Once, I was dancing to a Lady Gaga in the car - Just Dance, actually.  A cop ended up pulling me over because he thought I was having a seizure.  I am not exactly sure how he thought that I was controlling the car if I was having a seizure, but it's still a funny story.

THREE. I am really good at getting sales on clothes.  I am extremely cheap frugal when it comes to buying clothes.  Even my wedding dress was on mega sale.  I shop sales, sign up for email alerts at my favorite stores, coupon, and make friends with sales people.  Seriously, I have a hard time spending $13 on a's just not "Clearance" price to me.

FOUR.  I am really good with children.  When I was younger, I was under the impression that all females were good with children.  It wasn't until I was older that I noticed that not every one was.  I am not sure what exactly it is about working with children that makes it come so naturally to me.  It just does.  I think it may have something to do with the fact that children need structure, and I am a creature of habit.  It could also be their innocents, and my desire to keep them that way.  What ever it is, I am thankful for it.

FIVE. I am a master list maker.  I am convinced that I can rule the world if I make a detailed enough list.  Usually, they end on increments of five.

Oh, in case you are wondering what my favorite people think I am good at, here is what they suggested I write about:
Motivating my husband
Packing a house
Shoe shopping
Making enchiladas
Long distance relationships
Being Proactive
Being frank with people


  1. Okay I think we might be the same person with this post. I'm not much for office charades but that's because I'm a nanny so I have that kid one down pat. I grew up and learned that a lot of women didn't want to have kids. Blew my mind. And YES to car dancing all day every day. I miss that so much now that I live in NYC and rarely ever drive.

  2. I've been told I should have been a teacher, because I have a way with children. Yes to car dancing, both hubby and I do it, lol...though to much different music then you listen's age thing. I don't like to shop, but when I do; I don't even look at something if it's not marked down.

  3. Hahaha the story about getting pulled over while dancing, I'm SHOCKED that hasn't happened to me before. I'm definitely a car dancer as well, I'm sure we'd put on a rockin show together :)
