Wow, where to start?  At the end of every month is a good time to reflect which is why I am joining up with Emily Freeman from chatting at the sky.  Here are just as few of the {random} things I have learned this past month, in no particular order:

 

 

1.  When shopping, if you already have something in your closet that you like more then don’t buy it.  This is simple yet so true, right? I’m adapting this (which will make my financial planner hubby happy).

2.  I should have never bought Cookie Butter from Trader Joe’s. It’s as good as everyone said it was, darn it.

3.  With a family of five I should be buying double the groceries when at the store.  I’ve always been a slow learner.

4.  Fitted tops are more flattering than over-sized blouses.   A fact that I may waive my right to accept  after three children.

5.  After baby #3, maybe those last 5 pounds aren’t ever coming off.  As in, ever.

6.  Arteries carry your blood from your heart to various parts of your body; veins bring the blood back to the heart (This works great, until one gets lazy).  Did you know this?

7.  My 8 year old comes up with the best one liners.  Mr. Robinson jokingly asked why Family-So-And-So never invited us to their beach house.  Before I could say anything, Kenley responded with, “Because we have to many kids.  Simply put.”  Amen.

8.  My favorite quote of the month, “To surrender a dream is to leave life as it was, not as it could be” from a Today Show segment on a puppy rescuer who drives 4200 miles twice a month.  You can read the full story here.

9.  With a pre-teenager, an inquisitive 8 year old and a toddler who still needs a lot of my attention, I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Raynes is getting, do I dare say, a bit easier.  Please, Lord, let is continue this way.

10.  The meaning of Maundy Thursday. I’ve known that is comes before Good Friday, which comes before Easter Sunday.  But  I “get it” now- the depth of the meaning of that momentous day.
