Special Talents

Whenever I start feeling like I'm not enough all I have to do is take a few minutes and reflect on my special talents. In our family of five we all make unique contributions. It seems I am THE only person in our house who can:

-refill ice trays. I discovered 4 empty trays in the freezer and an empty ice bin. Darn our malfunctioning or perhaps stubborn fridge who refuses to make ice or dispense water.

-replace toilet paper rolls. At least this allows me to ensure that it's done correctly. We all know there's only ONE way to put on a toiler paper roll, right? RIGHT?

-turn off lights, televisions, fans and any electronic devices.

-find shoes, jackets, and homework. Never mind that I cannot keep track of my own keys, cell phone or garage door opener. or debit card.

-close the laundry room door. I am also the only one who cares about the status of the laundry room door.


What are your special talents?


On the off chance that you have forgotten, I am over at the Yeah Write playground playing Red Rover with all the cool kids. We are harnessing the power of group motivation and our goal is to publish a post a day in the month of November.

My special talent is that I'm a teacher: I've taught my husband the RIGHT way to place toilet paper on the roll and how to launder bras.

Ummm yah, a waterfall is the only way toilet paper can be happy...

I keep the dog alive.

The bathroom trash emptied.

I am a master-mind at finding things others in the household have lost, but blamed on me moving them. Funny how we always find said items right where they left them. And then I hear "oh yah."

You are magically talented :)

WHOA! I cannot even imagine what life would be like if I could just teach everyone to do things the RIGHT WAY..aka MY WAY! You are lucky~

Robbie K said...

Thanks! You are a fantastic supportive bloggy buddy :)

Robbie K said...

Waterfall...I like it!

Yes. Yes. Yes on being blamed for moving things.

Apparently I'm the only one who can load and unload the dishwasher!

Kimberly said...

I'm certain I am the only one who can take out the trash. And who cares about clean underwear.

Robbie K said...

My husband would probably say the same...I do load it..just not a fan of unloading it.

Robbie K said...

Yes on the underwear and I'd add socks to that too!

That is all so true! I am also the only one with those special talents in my house. I would add that I'm the only one that can shut the front door (inside the screen door) to keep the heat in.
