Four Fill-In Fun with Feeling Beachie!
Well, I'm quite late with this post, but I thought it would be fun to participate in the Four Fill-In Fun, so I'm going to post this anyway. Hopefully next week I'll actually post it on Friday! Have a great week.
1. If not for my significant other, I’d never have started my own business. The landscape maintenance company that we have now is considered Daniel's, as far as I am concerned. However, our first business (also a landscaping company) was DEFINITELY a joint affair. We stayed up many nights working on our plan, and we got up early many mornings to hand out advertising flyers. I spent several months working in the field with Daniel while my mom babysat the girls. Owning your own business is an experience unlike any other. Knowing that your next paycheck is coming COMPLETELY from your own efforts really changes the way one looks at work.
2. On more than one occasion, I have slept in a car. I am notorious for falling asleep while someone else is driving. I'm amazed I don't fall asleep while I am driving! Seriously, if the ride is longer than about 15 minutes, and I'm not reading or actively talking to the driver or other passengers, I will be out like a light. I feel badly for my husband. I'm sure it can get lonely doing all the driving with me asleep next to him.
3. The worst meal I ever made was mac and cheese when I was about 10-years-old. It was the first dish I was preparing by myself, and I totally messed it up. I was supposed to put 1/4 cup of milk in the pot, but I misunderstood the directions. I put 1 and 1/4 cup of milk in. Thankfully my dad is really good at fixing things without too much trouble, and he grated some cheese into the mix and poured off some of the milk. He taught me that mistakes aren't the end of the world.
4. My guilty t.v. pleasure is "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" and "Make It or Break It." Both of those shows are filled with nothing but sex and gossip, but I enjoy getting away from the real world to watch them.
