One – I guess I’m just never going to get tired of fairy tales. We haven’t had cable for a couple of years now, so when we watch shows, it’s fun to see them back to back to back. Without commercials. Without waiting. The latest one my family and I enjoy is Once Upon A Time – a modern day twist on traditional fairy tales. It doesn’t require a lot of brain power, and I’m better at pacing myself now, but it sure is fun to pop in a new episode after dinner.
Two – I (finally) learned how to link up social media buttons on my blog. I had been wrestling with this for weeks and weeks and couldn’t get things quite right. The links would work, but the images would be off. Or the images would appear – sometimes randomly – and the links wouldn’t work. Then I read a series of great interviews with Amy Lynn Andrews on How They Blog and she had so much good information to share. I gleaned so much from her posts and Q & A, I thought I’d take my fledgling Twitter self and just ask her if she had any tips. Within 24 hours, she responded with a specific post that had the best tutorial I’d ever seen, and within half an hour, I had my buttons up. Thank you Kat Lee (How They Blog). Thank you Amy Lynn Andrews.
Three – Speaking of recommendations from Amy Lynn Andrews, Tiny Wings is totally addicting. Fun. But addicting.
Four – It’s official. I feel like I belong at work. I love my job. I never saw myself doing something like this. But in the process of configuring Microsoft Surface Pros for deployment later next month, I realized that I’ve found my next career calling in a place I absolutely love. Oh, and I learned how to configure a Surface.
Five – Having Fridays off in the summer is pretty fabulous, but working four-tens kicks my butt.
Six – No matter how many times I watch Firefly, I still love every episode. And I still get passionately annoyed that the series was cancelled. Browncoats forever.
Seven – I thought it would be awful when my daughter got around to texting, but it’s not. Granted, she doesn’t have her own phone yet – that may alter my opinion somewhat – but when she’s sending me love and sweet messages out of the blue, it’s hard to be unhappy about that.
Nine – I make a pretty mean, “gummy salad” for kids’ sleepovers. It was a huge hit.
Ten – Guest posting is exciting, and encouraging, and fabulous, and exhilarating, and exhausting. I was privileged to have my first guest post ever with the (in)courage Bloom book club, and the range of emotions I went through really surprised me. Their team was so supportive and just cheered for me the whole way – it was such a wonderful first time experience.
Eleven – this is not so much a “learned” as a “reminder.” It’s just so hard to be 3,000 miles away from home with no road in between; especially when they could really use you at home.
Twelve – In French, instead of saying “I miss you,” the translation is “you are missing from me.” Love that.
