What I Learned This Week!

Do you think you can take another week of what I've learned? I mean I don't want to overwhelm you with this mind blowing stuff. Just chew on what you can and leave the rest for later.

This week I learned that....

1. ...blogland truly is a place that you can meet friends. (Even if our husbands still think it's a little weird!)

2. ....I'm obviously not sick of cake yet. Though this cake was not in any way related to my birthday like the first 3, it somehow still appeared when Debra and her husband set out to just get a "little" something for dessert last night. They came back with 2 cakes, doughnuts, ice cream, cookies, pie, and a strudel. Oy! They took their mission seriously! LOL

3. ....I can let go of things having to be perfect and just have fun.

4. ....my 4 year old will ultimately have to go "potty" while at the beach and is now all sandy and wet without a bathroom in site. (Yes, I ended up walking him home so he could go in comfort. With that said, I take off his wet shorts and send him into the bathroom. Oh no, not that easy. See there is something about a wet shirt that cuts off the "signal" and thus the shirt had to come off too. Then come to find out he HAS to have a shirt ON but just not a WET one, before he can "go". I'm sorry but if I had to "go" this would not have had time to take place, you know what I'm saying? LOL.

5. ....that my husband still gets excited when he has to extend the table to fit more people around it. LOL. Don't ask! Okay, I'll just tell you. It's a "new" table for us and we've needed one for a long time and we finally found one and he loves how easy it is because it's a drop leaf table and so he just enjoys "using" something that we "needed". .....it's a man thing! LOL

Okay as sad as it is, that's all I got. I'm drawing a blank.
All I can say is it's been a month full of fun and I've documented it right here on my little blog for your reading pleasure. But if your like me you're probably to busy for that! So I guess you'll never know and probably don't care about all the fun I had this month! LOL (Unless of course you are a faithful reader of mine then you are probably sick of hearing about it!) LOL!!

If you want to share your learning experiences head on over to Musings of a Housewife and link up!

  13. I love bloggy friends! They are the best! Yes, my kids have to go potty at the most terrible times. "why didn't you go before we left?" "I didn't have to go!" There is truth to that, but not the point I was trying to make!
