Like most people, I definitely have some bad habits that I wish I didn’t have!
1. I bite my nails. I know how awful and disgusting this habit is, but I’ve done it since I was a kid and it’s really hard to stop. The only time I ever stop is when I get fake nail tips put on at the salon, or if I get a manicure. I can’t bite the tips, and usually getting a manicure lets me grow out my nails a bit – at least until the polish chips off. This is probably one of the hardest habits I’ve ever tried to break and right now I’m not too successful at it. :( I tried getting a manicure a couple weeks ago and did not bite my nails for a full two weeks. Then the polish started to chip and I didn’t have time to go get another manicure, so I just redid my nails myself, and I have not been too good at keeping the urge to nibble on them away. This is a habit my husband REALLY hates, though… and the last thing I want to do is be a bad example for my kids and encourage them to “follow” me in the habit themselves!
2. Procrastination. This is a bad habit that probably goes along with a bit of laziness. There is a lot that I often leave until I absolutely have to get it done, and then I stress about it! I’m trying to be better at not procrastinating on getting all of the baby stuff done… it helps that my nesting instinct is starting to take over :)
3. Messiness. I do have a cleaning lady, so my house is always CLEAN…. it’s usually just messy! I typically blame this on the fact that a) I have a 3 year old whose toys somehow manage to get everywhere, and b) I don’t have a lot of storage in my house. I know there is much more that I can do, though, — including throwing away things that I really don’t need. I plan to get my house really organized in the next few weeks though, since I have to get things in order before having this baby! I got a bunch of organizational supplies recently, so I’m hoping to get things put away and find more things that I can get rid of before the baby comes!
