What I Learned This Week:Back To School Edition 2013

What I Learned This Week has always been a favorite blog meme. Reading some of Julie's entries has always brought a smile to my face. Each week I think that there isn't anything I could have possibly learned that is worth blogging about. Or sometimes it seems like I learn the same stuff over and over and over again. Sometimes I feel like I am doing nothing but complaining, and who wants to read that, right? But then I think, maybe someone out there understands or is going through the same thing. So, without further discussion, here is what I learned this week:   I learned this week that despite what I say, I am not ready for … [Read more...]

What I Learned This Week ~Exercise Is For The Birds

What I learned this week has always been a favorite blog meme.  Reading some of Julie's entries has always brought a smile to my face.  Last week she discussed all the things she learned about exercising and water consumption.  She has some really great things to say about it.  Right now I am trying to work on some healthy lifestyle changes, but that is not going to well.  I have been so resistant to the whole exercise thing, until hubby made me get off my rear and workout with him.  So, without further discussion, here is what I learned this week: I am addicted to Turkey Hill Iced Tea.  Just the regular kind.  But it is like … [Read more...]

What I Learned This Week~Christmas Decorating

Happy Tuesday! In this week's edition of WILTW, I have a few things I want to talk about regarding decorating for Christmas.  It is kind of hard to believe that the holiday season is already here, and that it's time to put up all the Christmas stuff.

No matter how carefully you pack away your decorations, every year something gets broken, even though you haven't touched them for 364 days. A law of some kind states that somehow one or two strings of lights … [Read more...]

What I Learned This Week~After The Storm

Happy Tuesday! In this week's edition of WILTW, I have a few things I want to talk about regarding power and technology. We depend on it so much that we don't know what to do when it's not there. So here are a few of things that I have learned this week: Don't ever take power or heat for granted.  They are great conveniences but they can disappear in a flash.  Be prepared to survive without them. Have an emergency plan, and update it frequently. Keep all your important family information written down on paper in a secure location.  Storing them on your laptop or on your phone will not be useful if you don't have power and … [Read more...]
