Words that define us

The two peas challege for today is: Close your eyes, open a dictionary, and point to a word. Does your word mean anything special to you?
*Now this is really weird. I opened the Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary with my eyes closed and selected a word on the right-hand page, first column. The word that my finger was on, was..... lens. How funny! Does that mean it was a good thing that I bought a new lens last week? I'll take it as a positive sign :) The word right below that was lensman: photographer. I think most people that enjoy taking pictures could define themselves as a "lens". It's what we envsion before we even put the camera up to our eye for that shot that makes us a lens.

Have you ever thought about the words that define us? If you had to select 10 words that you feel define you as a person, what would you pick? Now I'm going to have to think about this one...
1. mother
2. giving
3. impatient
4. caring
5. loving
6. understanding
7. photographer
8. learning
9. disorganized
10. flower

Today is my day off and I have a few plans. I had "planned" on getting up by 8:30... that didn't happen. It was almost 10am when I rolled out of bed this morning. It felt really nice too. I've got plans for dishes, laundry and some general cleaning. Not too much, mind you :) It is my day off... I would like to make it to the library for a little dead people searching aka genealogy researching. Once school starts, I won't be able to do much of that.

My work schedule is finally taken care of for when school starts back up on the 18th. I may have upset someone about the new hours... well ok I know that I did. Not that I meant to or anything. This person already has a 40 hour a week job plus covers a few open shifts at the place I work and then waitresses some. The shifts she has been doing are open shifts, which means if someone wants to take them as a permanent shift and it's ok'd by the company, then they are no longer open. Three of the shifts I took were open ones plus the one I already had to make me 32 hours per week. This is plenty with my class schedule. The open ones were all on the weekend which also works better for school and studying. Now it seems I upset this person by "taking her hours", as she stated. I really didn't plan on upsetting her, but she had the opportunity to make them her permanent shifts, but she didn't want that. Why can't life be more simple? lol

Love your list of words. As for things being simple, everyone wants their world to be their way and some people are just more difficult than others. And they like it that way! She'll get over it. And she's probably more irritated with herself than she is with you.
