last week's lessons

So I enjoyed doing this one so much last week, that I've decided to make it a weekly column, if you will. Here are some lessons learned:

  • A third-grade squid dissection is not "gross;" it is "interesting" and clearly I don't have a very "scientific attitude."
  • It will rain all day Sunday, except for the time you spend at church.
  • Strawberries always taste better with angel food cake and whipped cream.
  • Making a beard like President Lincoln's is not as easy as it looks.
  • Playing baseball with my family is really, really fun.
  • I should always check to make sure the shower head is actually pointing INSIDE the tub, and not at my face, before turning on the hot water.
  • When your husband asks you out on a date and you assume he's asking your four-year-old daughter - it has been WAY too long since you've been out.
  • Babysitters are worth their weight in gold.
  • When cleaning out the garage, do not be surprised that you will throw out more than you thought you had to begin with.
  • Getting takeout is always better than cooking.
  • Favorite stores of the week: Costco and Banana Republic.

Anything you've learned that you'd like to share?

Happiness is not doing what you like, but liking what you do! You are a great example of this! You remind us all that life is fun when you expect it to be! You inspired my blog on lessons learned this week.

Love your lessons! How great that you have strawberries that are edible--I love strawberry shortcake season! What did you and J do for your night out?
