2014 A Year in Review

I learned a few things this year.  At least.

  • Time spent on a project does not always reflect in quality.
  • Plan for everything and then round up another 20%.  Diapers always be hittin the fan.
  • Sometimes the best thing to do is nothing at all.  Give it time, walk away, and come back fresh.
  • You don’t have to solve everything.
  • Peace and happiness don’t exist solely outsides of stress, sadness, or pain.
  • Fear can keep you from making some really awesome choices.  It can also keep you from making some really terrible ones too.
  • There are worse things in life than sharing a shower with five other people but it may not feel like it at the time.
  • Nothing is certain.  Just because you have something today doesn’t entitle you to it tomorrow.  That doesn’t make it any less of a blessing today.
  • Loving a child, any child, is awesome.

In other news….

Here are some out of context moments from my week.

-A first grader told me “Sometimes I forget to brush my teeth in the morning.  I forget stuff all the time.  I don’t even remember what I got for Christmas last week!”

-“Don’t smack the crack!!”

-“Whoa!  I just busted through that velcro like the Hulk!”

Me “Oh ya it’s getting old.  It just doesn’t stick well anymore.”

“Are you sure it wasn’t just my bulging neck muscles?”

– “I’m officiating in a wedding this weekend and the bride texted me to ask what their song should be. I’m going with Baby Got Back.”
