This is my third monthly review, so I say that it has officially become a tradition. Here’s how it works – every month I come up with some things I learned. Then, I ask you all to join in with some recent revelations of your own. And 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 are some things that I learned in November.
Things I learned in November.
1. I learned the joy of possessing a pretty pink laptop. Oh, sweet Thusnelda.
2. I learned, yet again, that November is my least favourite month. Can you say blah?
3. I found out that good leashes make good step stools, if you want to keep your toddler out of trouble.
4. I discovered that I am not the only mom who just can’t seem to find the time to be sick. We’re busy, yo!
5. I learned that I sort of find my husband’s moustache cute, and less irritating than he does. He was so happy to get rid of that thing at the end of Movember, let me tell you.
6. I sent my first email to my Strocel.com email list, and found out that the people who signed up for it really did want to hear from me. Bless their hearts!
7. I remembered how very, very small a 5-pound infant really is. My daughter Hannah was born 6 weeks early, and I can’t even conceive of it now. I also wondered, yet again, where the time has gone.
8. I learned that submitting an unsolicited article for publication feels a lot like handing in a term paper or applying for a job. As it should, because it’s sort of a little bit of both those things.
9. After some false starts I made my own sourdough starter and baked my own sourdough bread. Yum!
10. I was reminded, yet again, how much I hate handling the technical side of blogging when we switched web hosts. It’s amazing to think that I was a programmer for so many years, considering how uncool I am when any issues crop up here.
What about you? What did you learn in November? Please share!
