My 3 Monsters: A Few Things I Know.

A Few Things I Know.

I work with a bunch of teenagers. At the gym. At church. Surrounded by young'uns. Young people whose lot it seems to be in life to make me keenly aware of how old I am. To painfully remind me of how much I don't know anymore and how much of modern life I am not aware of. So sad. Anyway . . . I thought about it today and I have a lot of my own wisdom to impart. I don't hold out a lot of hope for my coworkers benefiting from it, but maybe my children. I'll preserve these things for them:
  • McDonald's has the best Coke. If you happen to be out for a Big Mac and you're thirsty, definitely get the Coke. If your sole purpose in going out is to get a Coke, definitely go to Micky D's.
  • Food tastes better if you don't have to cook it yourself. Most of the people I know cannot afford to eat out every night, so a crock pot almost works in a pinch. If you put the food in the night before and then remember to start it in the morning, it just about almost feels like you didn't cook. Kind of.
  • Beauty really IS in the eye of the beholder. My husband thinks I'm stunning. Seriously. And I've had his eyes checked and everything. Go figure.
  • Bath & Body Works' Japanese Cherry Blossom is MY scent. I smell fabulous when I wear it. Every woman should find her scent.
  • Running is NOT the ONLY way to work out. Fastest, most efficient, most effective? Yes. Only? No.
  • When you can only justify buying one pair of shoes on a given shopping trip always go for the hot pumps, not the sensible flats. You're welcome, men.
  • As long as we're talking about shoes, every woman should own a pair of knee high boots. And it's OK to wear them every Sunday, with every dress you own from October through February. Though you may need brown AND black to pull that off. Successfully.
  • When every fiber of your being is begging you to just go back to bed any opportunity you get, RESIST! The exhaustion is like a tidal wave that will completely consume you unless you stand firm and fight. Just because all my kids are in school all day doesn't mean I can sleep my life away. (The only exception to this is when you've recently given birth. In that case, SLEEP if you're ever lucky enough to find the opportunity.)
  • Just because my kids are all in school all day doesn't mean I have to spend all day cleaning, either. Happy medium. Keeping busy doesn't always mean work.
  • Pay your tithing. It's always worth it.

That's what was on my mind today. Welcome to the madness.
