Dear 2017, you’re going to need to go ahead and slow down. These first two months have gone by insanely fast. And I’m going to need a slower pace moving forward, okay?
But, first, let’s look back on February. In no particular order, here are Six Things I Learned in February.
1. Ear infections are no joke.
I mean, I guess I knew this, but having one is a vicious reminder. Thankfully, I only felt like my head was going to explode for two days. Thank you, Amoxicillin.
2. February can feel and look like spring.
There are daffodils in bloom around our property. We’ve gotten chances to be outside. And four of the five of us have had poison ivy, which, really, also is no joke. I’ve had THREE STEROID SHOTS of varying doses & type because the first low-dose one didn’t cut it. Having a steroid shot as a diabetic is a blood sugar balancing act, but, y’all, I need the itchy rashes and blisters to GO AWAY.
3. A 1,000-piece puzzle that is a collage of pencils is difficult but oh-so rewarding when it’s finished.
As her second “real” puzzle, Cate may have been a little overwhelmed, but she stuck with me until the end. And, yes, this is definitely one that’s going to be glued and framed.
4. “Revenge” is an addicting show.
I started watching it on a Tuesday when my husband was sick in bed, I was puny on the couch, and my youngest was creating some nasty diapers but walking around otherwise unaffected by a stomach bug.
5. Rachel learned how to climb into the bar-height chairs around our dining room table, which means she can also climb onto the table.
That’s not exactly what I want to happen, but she made it happen the other day for the first time and many more times since. She’s going to be 18 months in a couple weeks, and she’s still full of joy and adventure. I would like her to learn so more words so the screeching can stop.
6. Popcorn with Reese’s Pieces in it is an awesome snack.
Okay, so, maybe I didn’t just LEARN this, but I’ve been enjoying it lately and wanted to make sure I mentioned it to you. You’re welcome.
Tell me about your February. What are you looking forward to in March?
