Thanks for joining me for our continuation of "Ask Tristi."
You must be a very organized person. How in the world do you find time to do all you do? Do you ever sleep?
My Answer: I've actually weeded out a lot of things, but yes, I do still do quite a bit. I don't spend a lot of time on housework and I have given up all but a couple of my hobbies. I do it all in little chunks here and there, and somehow, they add up to completed projects when I'm done. Sleep? Not so much.
What is one strength and one weakness we don't know about you?
My Answer: I've been thinking about this ever since Kim first asked it, and I have to say, it's one of the hardest questions I've ever been asked.
My weakness is that when I get stressed, I get very selfish and I shut the world out. I'll turn the kids over to my husband and go curl up and read, or I'll leave the house, or I'll stay up late and watch a movie, all by myself. I am very stingy about my alone time.
My strength ... it's pretty hard to look at yourself and identify your own strengths. I have the strength of listening to two people argue and being able to understand what they are both trying to say and aren't able to express. It's come in handy in negotiations and helping to solve disputes.
Stay tuned for more questions and answers tomorrow!
