Running behind - Yep that's me!

Amy's Friday Five: This is where I share with you the 5 things I have learned this week and you just might learn a little something about me at the same time.

I am late today b/c I was out late with dance recitals and then woke up with a sick kid and a really messy house this morning. 

Five things I have learned this week:

1.  I love love love chopped salads from BJ's Brewery.  Good thing I live in the middle of no where, no where close to a BJ's because although it is a salad I am sure they are not the healthy type.

2.  When I a am missing tupperware, kitchen utensils, and pans from my cupboards I should remember to look in the backyard because that is where they are sure to be. Covered in mud and dirt but at least I know I wasn't crazy after all.

3.  When I need Tylenol the most I'm sure to be out. { If you have read my posts you know I live in the middle of nowhere and a trip to the store and back takes two hours.}  You would think I would be prepared for such situation - I thought I was until this morning where apparently the three bottles of children's tylenol I thought I had were completely empty (who puts empty bottles back in the cupboard? What is up with that?). I am blaming the hubs  (love ya! babe)- actually I am taking his word that they are out and have not actually looked myself . Maybe I should..........................Nope he would be correct.  I did find some Infant Tylenol so we area not completely out.

4.  Fresh cut grass is like getting a new haircut. I love it! It just looks so good! I'm strange - I know.

5.  I should pack my whole cupboard of snacks (instead of a small bag) when going to the next dance rehearsal. That and feed my girls a huge lunch instead of peanut butter roll-ups and cheese quesadillas as we run out the door.  In my defense I wasn't planning on being at the theatre from 4pm to 8:30pm. Good times! HUNGRY children are NOT HAPPY children!

There you have it - 5 things I have learned this week.  Because there is always always something to be learned.  What did you learn this week?

Can anyone translate?

Amy said...

No I can't translate? Sorry.

I learned that because you want to go to a new vet closer to home is not always the best thing. Why? I am ending up going back to the old vet which is farther away. Oh well.

I learned that I really hate getting up early to exercise....oh wait, I didn't learn that, I already knew it, I think I just remembered it this week....does that count? HA
Love the Friday 5

That's just great...I love how all over the place your learning is, that's how I would be :-)

I learned that meeting new blogger friends is wonderful!

Amy - Vets are like doctors and hair dressers. Once you find one you love stick with them if you can.

I once drove 6 hours for a haircut. I would still go to her if I didn't live 15 hours away now.

Erin I'm with ya! I relearn that everyday. It count's!

Trudy - I AM an all over the place kind of gal! I think it keeps it interesting. I agree meeting blogger buddies is great!

I don't know much portugese, but she says in a nutshell: "You have an excellent blog. I would like you to visit my blog and know more about the things of Brazil." I think. I know spanish and it is simular.

Nice to know more about you! I totally understand about the missing pots and pans... I find many of my kitchen stuff out in the sand box.

I learned that I can't do my work and everyone else's, too. Have to learn how to delegate, even at home!

Great friday five!! I am sure that I learned something this week, but I don't remember what. I really need to write things down. Maybe that's what I learned this week that I am getting old and don't remember anything.!

So with you on the Tupperware, utensil comment. Relieved to hear it too. I looked out and found a good butter knife, two plastic cups and an empty water bottle all sitting in the dirt before dinner this evening. Someday, wayyy in the future, when they go on some kind of paleontological dig, they'll find fossilized Tupperware and other amazing things in my backyard. Glad I won't be there to observe. It'd just make me mad.

Veggie Mom said...

BTW, I have a bit o' bloggy bling for you at my place today!

Such good things to have learned this week! My tupperware is always in the sandbox!
