Here is what I’m learning


Some uncomfortable situations are worth stretching and growing for; others might only make you unhappy. It’s important — and sometimes difficult — to know the difference.

It doesn’t matter if it takes you five minutes or five years: As soon as you know a romantic interest should no longer be a romantic interest, cross him off the list. With a Sharpie.

Time is the new money — that is, until a 50-foot tree limb snaps and almost crushes your car in the driveway. When you fork over $450 to have some guy saw it down and haul it away, you realize that in certain situations your time is kind of worthless and money is, in fact, worth a lot.

At the end of the day, dogs are just wild animals. So when yours hunts, chases, catches, kills, rips apart, and swallows a rabbit, come on, man, don’t be so surprised.

If the only food you stock in your house is eggs, apples, string cheese, and Wheat Thins and it makes you feel sad but you still don’t change your ways, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Wherever you go, there you are. The grass is never greener; it’s all just grass.

    Deep thoughts, by Annie P! And oh man, I was so sympathetically bummed to see the photo of your tree limb/car-crushing cruddiness… NOT the way you want to spend $450! :(

    I’ve missed you!

    Sorry about your car – hope your insurance covers tree limbs.

    I think it is always a hard lesson to learn that we are much better off tending to the grass where we are at instead of going in search of the greener fields.
