Owl through and through

I am an owl. It seems like I have always been very interested in people who have extensive knowledge in whatever their interest is. For a while it was my highest ambition to become a college professor--I realize now because of how knowledgeable they all seem to be and how much is required to become one. I love to just listen to people talk about the details of how to do something well and what makes something work.
My husband (pretty sure he is a Peacock by the description) can become frustrated with me when I always know just how much we can spend without putting ourselves into unnecessary debt.

As a musician and teacher, I do tend to spend hours on the details of one particular objective to the detriment of the big goal. Sometimes I create resources that I could find already completed somewhere but I am just "sure" that the students will benefit more from mine and just obsessed with trying to do it myself. (I get that I actually do not have all of the answers lol!)

I definitely overplan everything!! The meals in my home are planned two weeks in advance and I research all of the grocery circulars and coupons to get the best prices and stock up on everything we need. Vacations are not fun for me unless I have created an itinerary with all of the directions, fees and prices, budget, packing lists, etc that we could need. All of that work just to enjoy life!!! I admire my husband's ability to just wing it but I have a hard time following suit. He calls spontaneously to suggest a bowling date that night with another couple and I am instantly asking questions and thinking through the details. He just goes with the flow, and I am sure it is more fun! That's why i was attracted to him in the first place....
I think a lot of my tendencies come from having an "owl" for a dad. He was always making lists for everything in our home, never left the house unprepared for whatever event was coming (we always brought extra warm clothing just in case--even in summer). Yet, my sister is not entirely that way, so I assume it is somewhat built into me as well.

I am 100% at your back for this road safety forum you are having. It's a great way of instilling to the people the value of safety when on the road and thus, preventing any accidents from happening. In our country, the rate of minor road accidents seems to rise so this forum would be helpful especially if attended by people mainly using the road for transportation.
