Things I've Learned Thursday

1) Having to say goodbye to someone you love has got to be the hardest thing ever in life. I saw one the cheeseburger bird's baby eggs, cracked and on the ground and I about lost it. I know the little nugget is flying around rainbow bridge.

2) My Wii Fit is a compulsive liar. On Tuesday, I got confetti and music for having lost 9 pounds and on Wednesday, I got the sad voice saying that I gained 6 pounds. Either she is playing with me or my balance board needs new batteries.

3) It's truly a blast interviewing people for Hope for Women Magazine. I interviewed Kari Jobe this past week and she is a doll! To speak to a teen who is truly humble and on fire for God was refreshing. She is a sweetie!

4) Thanks to Buckeroomama, I lost about 3 hours of sleep after seeing her "eensy weensy spider". I felt something crawl on me and I was up the rest of the night, thinking that it was the EWS.

5)I'm loving this online site called Swap It Green. It's like a giant yard sale that is based on trading with points instead of money. Nothing like getting rid of stuff and then getting more stuff.

6) Humble is obsessed with his swimming pool. Each time he goes outside, he take a dip and splash and then runs back in the house. Unfortunately, he does it right after I've mopped the floors. He just came in with a mouthful of water, stared at me, opened his mouth and let the water drool out on the floor. THEN, he looked at the puddle, smiled at me and then started to lap it up.

7) At least once a year, I get an overwhelming desire to take a road trip....the kind where I just get in the car and drive. I'm not sure where I'd drive to or how far I'd drive but I love daydreaming about it.

8) Even though my daughters are grown up, I still worry about them. Married Boo is heading out to Vegas to meet up with a huge group of bloggers. Although I know she's going to have fun, I still worry about her making that drive.

9) I was totally grossed out when Boo mixed his egg into his bowl of oatmeal. Ewwwwww.

10) It's just not fair living in the desert in the spring time. It's gorgeous outside but too hot to really enjoy it.

What have you learned?

I live in the desert too and I know exactly what you mean about beauty and viewing it from the inside looking out.
Love your blog.

I felt the same way the other day after seeing Buckeroomama's, "eensy weensy spider"!

I often have visions of a road trip across the country in a mobile home. Don't think my husband will go for it.
But you just gave me an idea...maybe I'll do it with "the girls." If that dream ever comes true, I'll invite you along. :)

Mandy's Life After 30 said...

LOL at Humble and his mischief! :-) You can take a road trip to Pensacola, Florida to see me! Free room and wonderful homemade meals by me! :-) Come on down then we'll take a road trip to my parents for dad's bacon wrapped shrimp!

I learned this week that my daughter is even smarter than I realize. I realize the value of good conversation. I also learned to find positive things in my life even when I'm feeling low.

Have a great weekend Simone!

I like that idea of you going on a road trip. I can have your room ready in minutes! Just say the word!!!

My dream is to drive across the country on Rt. 30, the old Lincoln (or National) Highway. I can jump on it about a mile from my house. I've wanted to do it ever since I saw the old 'I Love Lucy' episodes where the Arnez's and Mertz's did it.

Buckeroomama said...

Aw, really sorry, girls. Okay, I've now learned that just because spiders don't give me the heebie-jeebies doesn't mean that others are okay with them, too. :(

Ina in Alaska said...

I am NOT going to check out that spider!

One of my favorite vacations of all time was in 2006 when I drove from Anchorage to NJ (took my sweet time: 22 days, saw lots of sights along the way), spent the summer at the Jersey Shore with my family, then drove from NJ to Seattle (did not dawdle headed West). Put my car on a ship back to Alaska from there and flew from Seattle to ANC with Ginger. Was accompanied by Ginger and my mom from Anc and by my sister and Ginger on the way back. Loved the freedom of the road! Ginger, being the protector that she is, served as security!

Happy Weekend!

I've learned that road trips are more fun in theory than in action.

I think you should take the road trip. ♡

New scenery refreshes me and at the same time makes me appreciate home. From the time my parents took me home from the hospital, I have always loved being in the car. (50 years almost :D)

#6 is very funny; #9 is very disgusting. :)

I've learned that 6 big penicillin pills a day for 10 days will make your stomach very, very upset. :)

Syrone said...

I wanna go! A road trip sounds like fun. Nothing like traveling to an unknown destination. I have a feeling we'd get into a little trouble, but hey, at least we'd have fun doing it.

Nezzy said...

Ewwwww, egg in his oatmeal...what was he thinkin'???

Ya'll have a fabulously blessed Friday!!!

Xmas Dolly said...

Okay, I've learned not to go read Buceroomama. Also, I love road trips. We took one to Virginia one time to Busch Gardens, and there was this long tunnel through the mountain it was fantastic. So, I have Fox River by me, and if you get up early and head out you can be here by ?? and we can go Garage saleing together! WOOHOO!

Joanna Jenkins said...

I learned a long time ago that I do not like oatmeal so I can't even imagine mixing eggs into it. I'm with you. Ewww!

Have a great weekend CCD and stay cool.

The girl with the flour in her hair said...

I'm with you on #7. I daydream about that a lot. I even go as far as planning what I would pack in my bag.

And I am absolutely going to have to check out the Swap it Green site. That sounds like something I'd love!

Veronica Lee said...

The road trip sounds like fun. Can I follow??

Have a wonderful weekend, Simone!

Faith Imagined said...

Great list! It is a joy learning more about you! I am going to check out the Swap it Green site. Sounds fantastic!!!

I know that your daughter and fellow bloggers will have a great time in Las Vegas.

Ed Pilolla said...

i get that road trip wanderlust once a year. when a i had a stash of cash, it was easy to satisfy it. something really human about that internal longing to go somewhere, anywhere. there's a nomad in all of us. fun read.
