Here's what I've been learning:
- There are going to be a lot of wet towels for me to wash this summer. Even though we don't own a pool, we are getting invitations to go swimming or to water parks until my kids already think they should be going swimming every day. And if all else fails, the kids want to play in the sprinkler.
- It's not a good idea to get obsessed with what type of job you are going to find after your youngest child starts kindergarten--two years from now. The obsession will merely waste your time and try your husband's patience.
- No matter how sleepy I am after breakfast, I should force myself to stay awake (rather than dozing on the couch) and get going. I get more done and have more energy for the rest of the day. Today I even went to the gym and feel more energized. With any luck I'll feel energized enough to fold the laundry waiting for me.
