Here are just a few of the many lessons that I learned or were part of teaching to others over the last few days:

  1. I can out run the rain!
  2. Exercise relieves stress… more stress needs more exercise.  (NOT FOOD!)
  3. If you are going to test positive for drugs, BE HONEST with the court! Toilet water will NEVER pass for urine!  Two main lessons here: a) Punishment is always less severe if you tell the truth from the beginning. b) Don’t try to cheat on a drug screen… in any manner!  The professionals administering the screen have seen all of the tricks and will bust you!
  4. Doing work on your car at 6:45 a.m. in a skirt suit is not fun!  In fact, it takes a certain degree of skill to avoid getting said suit dirty!
  5. It is possible to have too much on your plate… literally and figuratively.  Give away whatever you cannot handle or save it for another day.
  6. August is a very costly month for my family!  Three birthday celebrations, car insurance due, two car tags to buy, and the list goes on and on….too bad no one has decided to give us an extra pay check or two this month!
  7. My two (almost three) year old has my husband and I figured out…. We are in BIG trouble!  Witness this conversation: Me: “Drew, I am done with you!” Drew: “ok, Momma!” Daddy: “you say cute things & we can’t stay mad at you” Drew: “so whatcha gonna do, Daddy?”
  8. A FREE and FUN way to watch the Falcons is to attend one of their Training Camps Practices.  We had a blast on Sunday morning (at least I know I had fun and I hope everyone else did too)!
  9. The amazement on my son’s face as he watched all of the people and then as the Stone Mountain Laser Show began was priceless!  Seeing new and exciting events through a child’s eyes brings a whole new appreciation for things we, adults, take for granted.
  10. Some Mexican restaurants have fancy lower calorie salads on their menu.  When you search the whole menu three times, you may find them and be pleasantly surprised!  (However, the fancy lower calorie salad is easily off set when you are eating your child’s unwanted nachos.  PUT THE CHEESY CHIPS DOWN!- talking to myself here)
  11. Cici’s Pizza makes a pizza that tastes exactly like a Big Mac….WEIRD!
  12. My husband is an awesome food combination inventor!  His Sun Dried Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Chicken is SOOOOO YUMMY!
  13. My fresh veggie soup that I invented was pretty good, too!  In fact, I would say it was MARVELOUS!
  14. As much as other people’s vomit makes me want to gag, catching my son’s vomit while trying to eat breakfast in a restaurant did not have the same effect.  Maybe because I was concentrated on covering it up and not disturbing any of the other patrons…maybe.
  15. A body lift will cost approximately $10K, none of which will be paid by insurance.  I am just about $10K short.  So, I will learn to live with about 20+ lbs of gross hanging skin.  I will deal with it and move on.
  16. Sometimes on the way to a goal, it becomes abundantly clear that you will not be able to reach that goal.  Instead of getting upset and quitting all together, revamp your goals and keep going.  Nothing wrong with adapting to your circumstances and reaching a goal in a slightly different direction.  As long as you have goals and you are striving to achieve them, you are doing well!
  17. When you feel like your destination has been moved further away or you are lost, take a walk and pray about it.  God will listen and often show you that your destination is in a slightly different direction from what you thought. 
  18. Money does not bring people together.  Spending time with people is what brings people together.  Cherish the time you have with your family and friends.
  19. I love my life and all of the people in it!  Yes, each and every one of YOU! 
  20. Don’t forget to watch Food, Inc tonight at 10pm on PBS! It is definitely a change-your-life kind of movie!
