What Have We Learned?

The weekend is upon us! It is not as sweet as a three day weekend, but I will take what I can get. I have some really exciting plans to get my car inspected this weekend, then I'll probably do some laundry. Jealous?

This has been another insightful week, as usual, and I've realized I'm more than ready for January to be over and for spring to get here; ready to no longer have to wear double layers everyday, and trudge around in my boots, because this is Virginia, NOT Michigan. I'm also ready to share with you all, dear readers, the nuggets of wisdom I've learned this week.

- I've learned that my yogurt phase has come to an end. We had a good, one week run, Chobani, but I've once again realized I just can't stand that weird yogurt texture, so it's back to using you as a cooking ingredient only, until one year passes and I've forgotten why we broke up in the first place.

- Millie has learned that her doggie bed is still going to require quite a bit of punching and scratching until it is just right.

- I've learned that when you get knocked down, you just have to get back up again and keep on fighting. I realize this sounds like one of those horrible, vague Facebook status updates that end with the person saying "message me" to anyone who comments, but sometimes you just can't show all your cards. I will say that I've been on an emotional roller coaster this past week, and that roller coaster was most unkind. It was akin to Fabio's ride on Apollo Chariots back in 1999, when a goose smashed him in the face and he broke his nose. One day, I'll tell you my secrets, but for now you'll have to be content with the image of Fabio's face colliding with a goose.

- This week, I've realized that my one year old niece, Nora, really has no interest in talking to me unless Millie is in the picture.

- I've learned that every year, without fail, January manages to feel like a never-ending month.

- I've learned that I really need to make a mental map of where all the mud pits are located around the neighborhood. This way, when it snows, I can make sure Millie doesn't go frolicking through it and track frozen mud into the house.

- At first, I thought there was no cure for the Baby Fever, but then my co-workers started discussing the births of their children, and I learned that yes, birth stories really do work just fine to shut that biological clock up.

- I've learned that I really am just like the other moms, especially when the other puppy mothers and I get together for a playdate at the playground.

Millie! Don't let Mac get too close to the edge!

Have you had enough Millie pictures yet? No, of course not. What inspiring things have you learned this week? Maybe, you're like me, and all you've honestly learned is that you want to eat all of the butter and carbs you can find.

Stay warm, stay safe, and have a glorious weekend.

linking up with Leslie!

All Love,
