On being awesome

I was awesome today.
And yesterday.
And maybe even a couple days before that.

There. I said it.

If my self-praise rubs you the wrong way,
perhaps try substituting the word "productive"
from here on out.
That may read a smidge less arrogant.
But really, I WAS.
I was productive and awesome!

I posted a bit about my awesomeness on facebook yesterday
but was gently reminded that it was the Lord's Day.
*delete post*
*hang head in shame*
Seems my awesomeness doesn't always know
when it's time to take a break
from being so awesome.

So.... ya wanna hear about it?
My recent bout of awesomeness?
Why don't I just type it up quick,

Gettin stuff done.
At this rate, I may come to the very end of my
To-Do list
(has that ever happened?)
and have to take out an ad in the local paper:
Awesome for Hire.
Because I am.

Also, in case you still find
my shameless boastfulness
I promise to soon share with you
some things that are in no way
About me.
And my house.
And maybe my abs.
Because I am not always so awesome.

But speaking of awesome,
Steve is threatening to start 
The Sing-Off 
without me!
Ben Folds.
Sara Barellies.
A cappella harmonies.

You are so productive--I mean awesome! And it doesn't work in your one sentence because then it would read I productive and productive. :)

I can't even imagine getting that many things done. Wow! If I get my bushel of pears (that someone gave me) canned tomorrow, I will call it a very productive day. And if I manage to get laundry done in between, I will feel awesome.
