You know the old saying, "you learn something new everyday"? I truly believe that. I DO learn something new everyday. For example, today I learned not to pick up a poopy diaper hastily or your fingers/hands will end up covered in poo. Not good.
This is me pondering life's lessons.
Recently I learned not to judge a book by its cover. I do this a lot. Case in point, my new blogging friends. When I first saw Kim and Ida, I thought, "who are those two skinny girls? And why are they standing by the food? "I automatically don't like anyone that's in better shape than I am (which is 90% of the population). I happened to sit down next to them and they could not be nicer. There were no condiments on the table and they, smart girls that they are, suggested using the ranch dip as a condiment. That was the moment that I knew I liked these two. They're also funny and smart. I adore them.
I was also nervous to meet Robin from Masshole Mommy. I thought, "with a blog name like that, she's got to be a loudmouth with a big personality." First of all, she's adorable. Second of all, she's so nice. I don't want to ruin her rep, but she's not a Masshole at all. She's a super cool blogger and mom. She really is one of the cool kids.
As I approach my 40th birthday (in 77 days) I'm looking forward to learning lots of things.
