What is True (about me)

It’s true that I love cats. It’s true that I killed my first cat when I was two (it was an accident. I loved it to death by hugging it around the neck far too often).

It’s true that music is with me almost 24/7. There is music running through my head almost constantly. Often songs, but sometimes just melodies or rhythms.

It’s true that the toe next to my pinky toe is bent funny. From the bottom of my foot, you can’t see that 4th toe at all.

It’s true that as a kid, I lost almost all my fingernails and some more than once. It was a by-product of sucking my thumb transitioned to biting my fingernails and the skin around my nails.

It’s also true that I still bite my nails and the surrounding skin today.

It’s also true that that might be the thing that drives my husband most crazy of all my bad habits. It’s true that I’m aware of this and that I still can’t seem to stop myself (though I think I may be better about refraining when I’m with him, but maybe not).

It’s true that I throw like a girl. Like a girl who really, truly can’t throw. I once tried to throw a frisbee for my dog and it ended up on the roof of the house. Behind me.

It’s true that I’m out of Β time. πŸ˜‰


This was a Five Minute Friday post written for only 5 minutes on this week’s prompt of “true.” I’m linked up with a ton of great writers all writing on the same prompt, check it out.

Here are my two current furballs, Chloe and Fritz.

We love you, Mom!

  1. I’m stopping by from the FMF link-up–and I’m so glad I did :). I’m more of a dog person, but I’ve had my share of cat experiences, too (I almost loved a cat to death when I was three).

  2. Hi, visiting from FmF.
    My husband still bites his nails and it drives me crazy. Sometimes its good to list bad habits – taking a clear look at yourself and to be honest.
    Will you stop biting your nails anytime soon?

    • It’s definitely lessened, evidenced by long nails over the past year. We shall see. I’ve definitely recognized it as mostly a stress response (or sometimes a boredom thing). The flip side is learning to offer grace, knowing we are not perfect. I say that thinking of how I need to respond for the things he does that drive me crazy.
      Thanks for visiting.

  3. Aw..I loved your cat photo. I have cats too and love them dearly! ( I have cared for a whole colony in the past ! πŸ˜‰ ) Thank God for men who put up with all of our annoying habits, and thank God for we who put up with theirs too (they can’t get off they hook scott free now! ). P.S. I run like a girl. Like a girl who can’t run. LOL. ~Rebekah @weliveinspired.com
