Things I learned or was reminded of this week...

Things I learned or was reminded of this week:

1. Even though a four year old doesn’t usually nap, she probably still needs to.

2. A dislocated toe hurts for a long time. Especially when you whack it on a shoe left in the middle of the floor. Especially when it’s your own shoe. Damn.

3. Guinea pigs poop. A lot.

4. If you put said guinea pigs on the floor in an effort to get a cute picture, the flash will probably startle the little darling, and it will likely try to make a break for it under the sofa.

5. An hour can easily slip away while sitting in Barnes & Noble, reading the first few chapters of Twilight to see if you really want to purchase it.

6. ‘We are often our own worst enemies’ and ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’. And a couple of other platitudes.

7. Any rags that have ‘Goof-Off’ on them should go DIRECTLY to the garage. NOT the laundry room… ahem.

8. I take mine and my family’s good health for granted. I need to work on that.

9. Taking at least one picture a day is harder than it sounds. Especially when it's pictures of guinea pigs.

10. That I should keep it in perspective. What? Well, just about everything. ;)

Oops... forgot one: No matter how thorough you are with the Christmas 'undecorating', you will STILL find something that didn't get put away, once the boxes are already sealed and back in storage. Dangit.

About the Christmas deco- I always leave a "catch all box" down until at least Valentine's Day. So far it has caught several forgotten items.

Isn't life fun that it continually reminds us of things, even when we don't want it too. Also my hurt toe from your house back in June, took a long time until it felt back to normal.

You're doing better than I. I got busted by a mom dropping her kid at my house today with my front door still fully adorned with garland and lights. Eh. February?
