Lessons Learned Over the Past Week

I haven't done a post like this in awhile and quite frankly, I've got a few things on my mind.

After I share them with you, they'll be on yours too.

Then maybe we'll be able to "put them in a bubble and let them blow away on the wind."

Please allow me to apologize in advance if any of these ruins your appetite.

1. Not only do I not like low-rider jeans, I do not enjoy following a woman who is determined to fit into a pair...even if she can't fit all of her into them. It gives new meaning to the term, "Crack kills." When she bent over in front of me, I may or may not have let out a little scream.

2. A peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwich has magical powers. It doesn't matter how bad a day can be going, bite into an old-fashioned PB&J and the day gets promisingly better. Add milk and lives change. Why has lunch gotten so complicated?

3. Turkeys are idiots. After setting on about 30 eggs for the past month, my "girls" smashed all of their newly hatched babies. With 1 egg remaining, my children decided to rescue it and place it in the incubator. Problem is, daddy and mommy went on an anniversary road trip for the week and the kids headed to cousin's and grandparents homes. Who's the idiot now? On second thought, don't answer that.

4. Mexican restaurant decor freaks me out a little. Not that I don't enjoy the food, mind you, but the decor really grates on my nerves. I like bright colors. I can handle the Sombrero's hanging on the radioactive orange walls. What I cannot seem to get past are the pretend parrots hanging from the ceilings. I thought it was just our local restaurants that did this, but apparently, it's the norm. This said however, real parrots hovering over my table would really send me over the edge.

5. Because we've gone away to celebrate our 24 years together, you'd think I would have shopped for  romantic, anniversary attire. Instead I bought a travel pillow, just in case the hotel pillows were not quite right. (Which they weren't...good thing I'm a planner and a doer.)

Don't worry about the Mister though. I got him one too.

Yep. I definitely feel better. Thanks for listening.

Agreed about the low rider jeans. Our church is folding chairs in a gym and we have tons of college students and......

My family has a parrot-she's been passed around for 40 years or more-real parrots would poo in the food-ewww!
