Things I Have Learned This Week

You thought I forgot? Yeah... I actually did. I have been so caught up in my personal funk of a crisis - between interviews and traveling and stressing, who has time to analyze their week?

Well... starting now.. I'm back.

Okay, without any further ado...

Things I have learned this week:

1. Yeah, I like big books. I feel like a smarty pants when I read them.

2. I don't trust anyone. EEk - I know... or maybe I should say, I will keep people at arm's distance. Yeah... that's better.

3. My love of God is strengthening during this trial in my life.

4. That if you drink Pumpkin Spice latte, and eat ice cream, and don't exercise - you WILL gain weight.

5. I am a natural promoter.

6. I could live off potatoes.

7. I can breathe better now, knowing I have a final plan - if my whole world falls apart, I found at least 3 places to reside until I get back on my feet.

8. Burt's Bee's Chap Stick called Red Dahlia is beautiful. Even on days I don't put make up on, it makes me feel better.

9. That being unemployed sucks. Sucks soooo bad. Sick of the emotional roller coaster. So sick of it that I am refusing to give into the BS anymore.

10. I should not be allowed to grocery shop when stressed out.

11. Giving the egyptian space is the best thing right now for our marriage.

12. Many of my friends really do care about, and that's nice.

13. That a 100$ gift card to Walmart (though I hate the place) - from Mom (thanks) - goes really fast.

14. That laundry detergent and other major cleaning aids like that are entirely over priced. (Never noticed until I became broke.) ;-)

15. That the book - "Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch in Your Marriage" - is a book most couples (regardless of what you believe) should read.

16. That the sounds that husband makes in the living room or kitchen, while I am trying to sleep - drive me crazy. But somehow, the tv on and the fan on in the bedroom soothes me right to sleep.

17. This pearl nail polish on my nails looks ridiculous

18. That maybe I should not have asked my hair stylist to cut my bangs this short. They are just not laying right... (swoopy bangs)

19. I need new shoes.

20. IT'S FALL - AND THAT MEANS MY MOOD WILL BE BETTER!!!

I agree with you about Fall. I love it. The problem here in San Diego is that it can get very hot in the Fall (Bleh :-/) There's nothing worse than a hot Halloween.

I also can relate about keeping people at arms length, I've been trying to abolish that. To accept invitations and friendship given to me. And stop focusing on friendship not given to me. Relationships are so complicated.

I'll have to check out those lip balms by Burt's Bees.

Hope that fall brings better days.

Nicole.... you just make me smile. I think you're a pretty cool girl, and I wish we lived closer so you could rub off on me - haha!

The sucky thing about moods is also the awesome thing about them... they change.

I need new shoes too! We should go shopping together... virtually, though, since we don't live in the same city...

Oh, and if you ever need a virtual hug (see previous point about why I can't provide a real one) just give me a shout!

Nicole, I think this post is a wonderful way of letting your readers know what's on your mind, your likes and dislikes, as well as some of your pet peeves. To read these made me smile. And may I say I need new boots for winter? :) Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting!

EmptyNester said...

Wow, can I ever relate to quite a few of those! Some of which I wish I didn't know. LOL
