It’s April already! Where does the time go? Once again I am, in fact, overdue for my monthly review. I didn’t want to let it go, however, because monthly reviews are one of my favourite traditions.
Here’s how it works – every month I come up with some things I learned, and not always the easy way. Then, I ask you all to join in with some recent revelations of your own. Or this time, perhaps you can share some less-than-recent revelations that occurred over the past year. Either way, we all learn and grow and what-not. Or at least share a laugh at our own expense, because some of these lessons are both hard-fought and funny. Sound good?
So, without further ado, here is what I learned in March – or some of it, anyway.
What I Learned Last Month
1. I re-discovered the joy of seeing those first sprouts poke through the soil.
2. I learned the injustice of rain during Spring Break, and a gorgeous first day back at school.
3. I found out that you could drink maple sap … and it’s actually not bad. Much better than coconut water, in my book.
4. I re-discovered the process of letting go that is writing and submitting a term paper.
5. I found joy in raising my own Mason bees.
6. I learned that when teaching your child their first song on the recorder, you become well and truly tired of hearing that song long before your child tires of playing that song.
7. I painted the playroom, and re-discovered just how much prep work is involved in that. Luckily, the result is worth it.
8. I learned, yet again, that I cannot be trusted around a bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs. Not even a little.
9. I discovered that cooking and cleaning is much more pleasant when listening to a podcast. You would think I would know this, having recorded 80+ podcasts of my own, but it was a revelation.
10. I went for a world record in the number of times in a row I can turn on a kettle and then completely forget about it until the water is too cool for tea. Lather, rinse, repeat.
