The other day, Pat and I were discussing our personality types. We both agreed he’s an AAA+. Yeah, not even just an A. He doesn’t let things sit, everything needs to be perfect and manages to work out every problem besides E=MC2…but I’m sure he would’ve come up with it if Einstein didn’t first. We then both said in unison that I’m a B personality. You know, cool, calm and collected.
But folks, there’s another side of me…it’s the AAA+ side. It called me getting something in my head and never dropping it until it’s done, 15 minutes ago. A client emailed us 5 minutes ago? I need to respond as soon as I see it in my inbox. I suddenly get an urge to move a piece of furniture? That furniture better be strapped to Pat’s back in less than 2.5 seconds and carried across rivers and active volcanoes to place it where I want. Let me tell you how much he loves this side of me.
Most of the time, I let things slide off my back. I’m usually the one telling Pat, ehhh its fine the way it is. But when it’s something that triggers my get r’ done list, ahhh I need to get it done now! And by the way, why did I just pull out the get r’ done? I definitely just put my New England apple picking, lobster catching roots aside for a moment to let ya’ll know this is serious business.
I’m trying to learn to give myself a woosaw moment and just let it be. In the meantime, Pat bought me a new notepad to write my lists down, think about them and possibly realize it’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t happen in this moment. I’m working on it. I’ll think it over while I give Pat another pulled back muscle because I force him to move another large object across 4 states.
Here’s me and the woman responsible for my personality, my mother. She has amazing photography skills as you can see.
Ma, you made it! You’re famous on the web!
