It says that I am an Organizer. And Creative.

I guess that's accurate.
What do your favorite colours say you are? Take this test. And then tell me what it concluded.

Other than that?
I decided that today is going to be the last day of this cold.
Seven days is long enough.

I went to a movie on Friday night, but spent a goodly portion of the evening in the bathroom, coughing up lungs and blowing my brains out my nose.

On Saturday night I went to the beach for some Gelato but, again, coughed and blew my nose endlessly.

And today? This glorious, wonderfully warm, spectacularly sunny, absolutely splendid September Sunday? The day that I was invited to join Shelly and friends on their boat and cruise the San Juan islands? I coughed. And blew my nose. And saw tiny sparkling stars whenever I stood up too quickly. So I stayed home and did laundry.

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. My grass is back from being dead.
2. Dad and mom were over for dinner tonight. Mom is doing an incredible job of caring for him. He is not the man he used to be... but he is content.
3. Drew loves school. Did hell freeze over?

Key Words:
Self-Control, Practical, Self-Contained, Orderly, Systematic, Precise, and Accurate
These conservative appearing, plotting-types enjoy organizing, data systems, accounting, detail, and accuracy. They often enjoy mathematics and data management activities such as accounting and investment management. Persistence and patience allows them to do detailed paperwork, operate office machines, write business reports, and make charts and graphs.

Yup, that about sums up my job and me. Uh, but I've never used an office machine to photocopy my butt. FYI.

Apparently I'm also an organizer. And a researcher. Perhaps that's why I'm also a nerd who loves academia... ;)

I also am an organizer and 2nd place - a doer. Your very careful, conscientious, conservative nature gives others the confidence to trust you with handling money and material possessions. Structured organizations that have well-ordered chains of command work best for you.

It also said that I would do well as an IRS agent. I think that would be because of the cop mentality I have not anything to do with accounting. My eyes glaze over if too much accounting talk goes on in any meeting I'm in.

Birds of a feather flock together. Clearly Organizers like Organizers.

Or maybe all first-born daughters are natural organizers?

Organizer...researcher. I am a first-born (only one!) daughter, too! Linda
