On 6th September I learned that kids have an unending ability to teach you new things if you'll let them. Life is a lot more fun if you let yourself be the student sometimes. On 7th September I was on the lookout for something new to learn when I realised I already had one in hand. Enjoying the ride is just as important as reaching the destination.
On 8th September I decided to finally accept that grocery shopping is a never ending task. When I was ill many years ago and got better, I relished a trip to the supermarket as a sign of recovery. I need to relearn that feeling instead of complaining. On 9th September I learned to be grateful for the opportunites my kids have that I didn't. A trip to the orthodontist and a parent/student careers convention. I could have done with both of those.
On 10th September I learned again that you don't need to spend every minute of the day on worthy or improving activities. When The Accountant is off on a Friday he always shows me the benefits of a bit of relaxation and lazing around. On 11th September I was determined to learn something I have been putting off. How to really sew up a knitted sweater properly. On the right side. No back stitch. I think I've cracked it.
Postscript: I'm doing the Pass The Book Draw on Tuesday morning, so you still have time to check that out. Sandi has last months book on offer here if you would like to be in on that one too. And, finally, anyone reading in Bloglines, please don't forget to switch to Google Reader before the end of the month!
