This past week has been so very full of life's little lessons, but aren't they all? Even the best of weeks have something to teach us. Fifty four weeks of learning, if we're lucky. Big and small, if you're paying attention, they're there for the taking. This simple idea was all it took to form the School Of Life linkup. I hope you'll join the fabulous Mariah at Food, Booze & Baggage, the ever twirling Miriam at Farm Girl and myself on Sunday's for some schooling :)
Now pay attention class, it's time for this weeks lessons.
First, the drive thru line at In-N-Out. It's always going to be a half an hour long. Just expect it. Bring a good book. Do what you need to do. The burger is so worth it.
It's true what they say about the importance of having 6 months salary in the bank. D and I always laughed at this notion. I mean, what could possibly happen that we'd need more than a couple a thousand dollars for right? We've been very lucky up until this point, but as the vet bills start to stack up, I'm rethinking the idea.
Buying a whole melon is never going to work in this household. I have a watermelon and a honeydew sitting on the counter now. They've been here all week and I can't seem to bring myself to cut them up. There's not a drop of domestic goddess in me.
|And apparently chopping too!|
Speaking of alcoholics, until this last week I thought I was a stress drinker. That couldn't be further from the truth. When real stress kicks in you won't find me anywhere near a bottle. Unless of course it's Friday night!
Don't take anything for granted friends. I know we hear this all the time and sadly sometimes it takes something hitting us close to home to make us realize that. Everyday is a gift. treat it that way and treat the ones you love the way they deserve to be treated.
So how'd I do? It's not too late to join in the linkup, and even if it is, there's always next week. Have a wonderful Mother's day all you psycho bitches. You absolutely deserve your own day. XO
