This question confounded me a bit. After reading it a few time I came to the conclusion that it should read "Something that sucks about you but you think you ought to be complimented on" or "A skill or attribute you lack."
I have absolutely no ability to decorate. Anything. Ever. No one has ever come into my home and complimented me on my paint colors, furniture placement or [lack of] wall hangings. [And no I don't want to be complimented
I like to think of our house as a home, and I suppose it is, but it really looks like a furniture store with hairballs, day old newspapers and random shoes tossed around. I don't do area rugs or carpets, I couldn't place a few knick knacks on a table in a eye pleasing arrangement if I tried and you can best forget curtains, throw pillows or candles.
Curtains, throw pillows and candles, oh my!
The thing is I have a lot of stuff. I have been on this planet a pretty long time [as has my husband] and we have accumulated bunches. Besides what we pick up here and there we keep inheriting things. Cool things. Things of which I have no clue what do with them. Case in point: The painting "Custer's Last Fight". Remember that whole diatribe? Well, yeah - ol' "I am no Martha" Skippy finally hung it in the kitchen. Yes you read that right. The kitchen. ::shame::
See what I mean? I am just BAD at this.
I am so bad at it that Wallene took it upon herself to rearrange the living/dining room combo, place flowers and candles about "just so" to make the house more homey for her sister's prom date. Her exact words "No Mom. No. [steering me to a safe place in the kitchen] Let me do this. Please. PLEASE." The child was begging to do housework and heavy lifting. That has to tell you something. Like perhaps she didn't want me to embarrass her sister with my oh-so-not mad skillz? I am still convinced I saw Squirrel slip Wallene a 10 spot when they thought I wasn't looking. sigh.
You know you really suck at something when your kids conspire to keep you from doing it. Yep!
