Things that I have learned this week:
Just purchasing cleaning materials, doesn’t necessarily produce a sparkling clean house. You have to actually use them.
The cat that cuddles with his paw wrapped around you in a friendly embrace during the daytime, isn’t nearly as appealing when he is kneading your body with his claws and meowing in your ear at 3 am.
Just the words “Doesn’t Kayla have school today?” combined with a sleepy eyed glance at the clock to see it’s 6:45am is enough to catapult me out of bed like I was 17 again!
Never ever decide to brush your teeth in the dark and trust that the tube in the drawer that feels like toothpaste is, in fact, toothpaste.
How enjoyable an evening out with friends for drinks and music can be when your daughter acts as the designated driver. Thanks, Bri!
To not get too smug about your new-found Spanish skills, less you wake up the next day with seemingly no memory of having started lessons.
That life gets a whole lot more complicated when two people are trying to agree what to do with the rest of it.
That just because you love each of the ingredients you are putting into the casserole, it doesn’t necessarily mean they will bond like BFF’s to produce an edible outcome.
Never convince yourself that it’s a better deal to buy the big jar of gourmet jelly beans from Costco over the small box at Trader Joe’s.
You’re wrong to expect rain that falls every day for months to produce a clean car.
I’m convinced it takes a village to find a comfortable yet attractive pair of jeans for the 50+ year old body.
