What event of 2011 affected you in an unexpected way?
Contributed by Kimberly Michelle [kimberlymichelle.com]
A lot of this probably has to do with my compulsion to plan things. I'm not often left surprised by anything (since of course, I always have contingency plans at the ready). I'm not the kind of person you plan a surprise party for, and I'm OK with that. Usually, if my husband is going to get me a present, it's from the Victoria's Secret catalog, where I've circled options and written in my size. The unexpected is something that needs to be researched to death, so it becomes the expected.
I know. My personality probably annoys a lot of people.
But hey, if you're my friend, you can always rest assured I've picked the best restaurant for us to eat at. And if you're going on vacation, I'm happy to put together some suggestions or an itinerary for you. Or if some snafu arises when we're together, I've got you covered. So while us type-As are annoying, they can also be your peace of mind!
Anyway, all of this is to say, I can't think of any events that impacted me in an unexpected way. That's just not how I roll. The only thing I can think of that barely qualifies is when we finally discovered deer and a fox that live in the woods behind our house. That was a pleasant discovery, although I wouldn't say it was that unexpected, since our neighbors had told us months before that there were deer around.
Oh well, I'll insert some cute animal pictures now, and just move on to the next, hopefully easier to answer prompt!
