In news that is surprising to no one, I've learned that I am very boring.

Here is my life, in a nutshell:

Get up
Work some more
More work

Note what is not on this list:
-Travel to exciting locations!
-Meet interesting people!
-Dance like nobody's watching! Or some crap!

Nope. Just work, work, work, work, work. I'm not even in a Rihanna song or anything. That would be far too interesting for me. Also, too much nudity. No one wants to see this mess.

It's okay though, really. You know why? Because these things are not on the list either:

-Unnecessary drama!
-Fear of STD's!
-Anyone having to see me dance! Except in Zumba, and it's okay there!

Really, I like being sane. I like being quiet. I like being "normal" (I use that term loosely, of course). I like working. I don't always love my job, but I like being productive. I like being able to support myself. I like looking forward to having dinner with my whole family on the nights that we get to do that. I like going to my regular Zumba class two nights a week, and I like my running schedule with my son. I like being married. I like feeling secure and safe and loved and respected.

I like my life.

There are things I don't like about my life. No one has a perfect life, obviously. I like mine though. I do. I like my kids. I like my husband. I like my dog. I like our routine. I like "us".

I just booked an Alaskan cruise and I'm excited and happy about that, but I also get excited about the littlest things, like Saturday night church service and having two hours to myself sometimes. I like to stand in my closet and smile at my clothes, because they are pretty and, thanks to Gain In-Wash scent booster, they smell amazing. I like coffee dates with my husband and the fact that everyone knows us when we go to Highway 55 for burgers.

So I'm boring.

It's amazing, and I'm happier than I've ever been.
