Mandie's Weekly Lessons:
1. Simple gestures mean a lot. Yesterday was my grandmother's birthday & since they had gone out for a big lunch, we had decided that I would just pick up a treat. So, I ended up getting some delicious goodies from Culver's - large orders of fries, onion rings & cheese curds & then a Turtle Sundae for each one of us. Then I gave her my gift & I did a photo album of just her kids, grandkids & great grandkids. It was a hit! She loved it! Yippee! My grandfather had said that she had a great day yesterday & I'm happy for that.
2. Being back in school is good. Leading up to getting back into school, Sunshine was not so sunny but now that she's been back, she's been better. I don't know if she's like me & needs to be on a set schedule or what but she has been more delightful now that she's back in school with team gymnastics starting up next week.
3. Going home for lunch leads to disasters. Today was the first since school ended that I went home for lunch. I typically take a "Parking Lot Lunch" & read my book in the comfort of my vehicle but since Sunshine was in school & Paul was at work, I went home to start dinner in the crock. With that, I started opening the can of green beans instead of the cream of mushroom soup. Then I decided to boil these lil warmers that Paul got me & he had found the bag that they came with that we were suppose to be using to boil them so I used that (we had been just wrapping them in a towel). Well, the bag meant to be used to boil the warmers melted which then melted one of the warmers. I was pissed! Paul believes that they under a life time warranty & he'll be contacting someone about it. So, yea, I hope this isn't an indication of how lunches at home will be. I didn't even get a chance to start my book! :(
So, what are some lessons you've learned this week?
