Things I Learned This Year
Washing your hair with one arm in a cast is next to impossible.
Having a husband who's willing to use his longer fingers to scratch that spot inside said cast that your child-like fingers just can't reach? Priceless.
Sparrows can brighten any day.
Getting back into running is painful, even if you were a trackster in high school.
Don't wear light-colored shorts to the gym if you sweat around your butt a lot. It will, in fact, look like you peed yourself.
Silverfish are the nastiest bugs on Earth.
Sometimes the difference between a black thumb and a green thumb is decent sunlight.
By mid-August, your entire garden will look like a desert.
Walking to the post office is actually kinda fun.
No matter how hard you try, that cute fluffy orange cat is not going to come.
Don't eat grey meat.
If you get an odd sunburn in April, you will have an odd tan all year.
Good flip-flops are worth the money.
Typing a novel with one hand is extremely difficult.
Physical therapy is not glamorous.
The only way I can stop biting my fingernails is if one hand is casted away from my body at a ninety-degree angle.
Grey's Anatomy can still make me cry.
Some new television is worth watching.
Starting a blog was the best decision I've made for myself since I married Evan.
Writing "The End" on your first novel, after 15+ years of never finishing anything, is a feeling yet to be unmatched--even by writing it on the second novel.
Some kittens are very strange. Their hobbies include licking eyes, licking eyebrows, licking sweat off my body--generally licking anything on me that sits still long enough.
This licking is actually kind of soothing.
What did you learn this year?
