Things I Learned Today / Friday, July 2, 2021

Things I learned today…

I am thankful for the reasonable, supportive, loving dance families I have. It’s a privilege to be a part of the lives of such good people.

When we go through a rough season – illness, a job loss, relationship troubles, whatever – we worry. Sometimes we don’t want to hear that it’ll be ok. We don’t want to hear that it will all work out. We want to cry and bitch and scream and complain and freak out for a minute. Sometimes we need to give people space to do that and not always jump to pet them or be fixers. Let ’em rant.

Don’t forget to be a good roommate when you’re married. My junk is all over the bathroom counter. Three pairs of Keith’s socks are on the bathroom floor. Sometimes we forget.

At one point today, I realized I had about 36 windows open on my computer at the same time, maybe 14 of which were Word documents. Had to go down through there and exit out of all that mess. Reminded me of how my brain must work. Uugghh.

When someone in front of me is driving PAINFULLY slow for the particular road we’re on, local tags, nice truck, beautiful day, no traffic, I have many questions about their life.

Men say they can think about nothing. Nothing. What even is that?!

I’m thankful for the people who play along with my little blog, like, and share. That’s so nice. I’ve gotten many nice compliments and support. Maybe it’ll take off. Who knows?! Otherwise, it’s a good outlet, and the 20 or so of us will enjoy it together. It’s alright to be little bitty.

Few things equal your kids or your husband telling you they’re proud of you.

Related to that perhaps… have you done or said anything today to make your husband or wife so glad they’re married to you? Do it! Small things count.

When you resent another person, the only one who feels it is you. Put that in the bank.

iPhones do that thing where you can LOVE or EXAGGERATE a text message. That means us lowly Android people have to open up our texts just to clear that notification as if we’ve gotten a real text message. Annoying first-world probs. Don’t come at me about having an Android phone either.

Consider this an afternoon TILT edition. I’m mentally exhausted from work, and I am off to do things I love. I plan to cook food and be with the fam this evening, and I didn’t want to miss posting. Thanks for the support, Everyone. I’m trying to get this little dream off the ground, and I couldn’t do it without you. I appreciate your liking and sharing the WSS posts and telling your friends to follow.

That’s all. We learn everyday, don’t we?
