Things I Learned Last Week (2)…

  • It’s a lot more difficult to find time to blog with a retired hubby around the house, but that’s okay.  I’d rather talk to hubby than type on a computer.
  • “Fifty Shades of Gray”  will most likely show themselves in the mirror each day, if you stop coloring your hair,  however, I also learned that I don’t mind having “fifty shades of gray” as much as I once thought I would.
  • Reducing hormone replacement therapy still sucks, even when it’s done slowly.  Sleepless nights and  hot flashes are still no fun.
  • Life always seems better on sunny, warm days–even after a sleepless night without hormones.
  • Raking leaves is a more fun way to exercise than walking on a treadmill.
  • Burning leaves and fallen limbs is a great excuse to have a wiener roast.
  • Wiener roasts are more fun when done during my retired hubby’s [former] working hours!
  • Wiener roasts are even more special when our daughter and granddaughter join us in the fun.
  • Roasted wieners are best when eaten outside on a beautiful, sunny day!
  • S’mores make a great dessert after a lunch of roasted wieners.
  • Having a retired husband, who likes to cook breakfast, can (and does!) cause weight gain.
  • Weight is a lot easier to put on than it is to take off.
  • Even though the calendar doesn’t officially say spring, the thermometer, the trees, and the flowers are saying, “It’s spring!”
  • Seedlings grow twice as fast when temperatures are warm, therefore, plants quickly outgrow their cups!
  • Watching Netflix is more enjoyable than watching recorded satellite television.  You don’t have to fast-forward through a million commercials while watching a show!
  • Our favorite show on Netflix, at the moment, is ‘Breaking Bad’.  We’re on Episode Six, Season One.  Only fifty-seven more episodes to go.
  • Unfortunately, I learned that three of our favorite new shows–Stalker, Forever, and State of Affairs— are, most likely, going to be cancelled.  C’mon people!
  • Cats can be pretty resilient.  Thankfully, Jo Jo’s eye has completely healed, and he seems none the worse for wear.
  • Even the best laid plans can (and do!) often go awry.  This happened to us twice, last week.  First, our daughter became ill on the way to eat lunch out-of-town with us.  Next, our youngest grandson, Evan, got sick, forcing his parents to post-pone their weekend visit to our house–again!

That’s some of what I learned last week.  What did you learn?

  1. Sorry for the sickness, and sorry for your lower-hormones maladies. Not fun at all!! Hope all are feeling better soon!

  2. I just couldn’t get into Breaking Bad. We watched “Manhattan” on Hulu…can’t wait until this summer for the new season! Also, Vikings is high on our list, too.

  3. Sorry you’ve got some illness in your family … hope the sick ones don’t decide to share. 😉

  4. I’ll pass on the wieners but I am thinking of subscribing to Netflix as a an addition to my retired life. Breaking Bad will be my first assignment,

  5. Yes to #1, plus we’ve got lots of comings and goings, so hopefully I can figure out how to squeeze in the A-Z next month. I think it will take some time to get into a new routine, but so far so good : )
