Hello! I'm KP and I am not really a fan of these about you boxes. I mean does anyone really care that I like to craft, or read, or travel? Or that I am a sports enthusiast? Heck I bore myself just typing that. So I'm going to share the stuff no one else dares to share, the good bad and ugly.
I'm the oldest of 4, and if you ask any of my siblings, all three would gladly tell you that I suffer from oldest child syndrome, AKA I'm bossy. I like things a certain way, and when I don't get my way I'm not always happy. As I've aged I've gotten better about internalizing my mini "you're doing it wrong" meltdowns, but alas, I'm human, and sometimes my inner 12 year old rears its ugly head!
I'm long winded. I can take a novella and turn it into a trilogy. I can't help it. I feel the need to be extremely detailed. Much to the shagrin of my family, who like to sit and "fake" snore when I tell a story. Do they not realize that by interrupting me with their (rude) antics, it only makes the process that much longer??
I'm opinionated, thus this blogs title. Aren't we all though? Me, however, I am usually willing to share mine, especially if asked. I'm mastering the art of tact, and while I'm respectful of others feelings and opinions I'm a tell it like it is person. I am of the general opinion that most people appreciate this trait, there is never any question on where I stand, or where they stand with me. I'm sure there are others who are not so appreciative of it, and I can only hope they are big enough to respect me for staying true to myself, even if they don't particuarly care for me or my opinions.
I'm sarcastic. Extremely sarcastic. Some say sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, I say screw them!
I crack myself up. You know those people who laugh so hard at their own jokes they can barely get the punchline out?? *Hand raised high* Yeah I would be THAT person. I annoy myself with this one, but try as I might, when the mood strikes and the giggles start it's game over for me.
I'm thrifty. Fortunately I'm also crafty, so I take things like home decor and invent ways to accomplish the look I want on a budget I can live with, without buyers regret.
Finally I'm a wife and mother. My husband, CJ, there are times I think he is a saint to live with me and put up with my antics, and other times I think I'd like to strangle him. (I'm kidding people. Remember I'm sarcastic??) Fortunately the strangling day dreams are fewer then the he's an alright guy ones. Besides, he gave me a cute kid, E, and she provides me with more "somebody please strangle me" moments then I knew%
