She can't be taught

Photobucket

Ready or not, it's time for What I Learned This Week over at Musings of a Housewife. Did you learn anything?

It started yesterday. The wondering. The pondering. The smacking of my head with my hand. Why, oh why, did I not pay attention this week? Yeah, I couldn't come up with anything I learned this week. This morning, I told of my failings over on Twitter. If you put it out there, you just may get an answer on Twitter:

"PuriChristos @weightwhat maybe you learned that some weeks you don't learn big quantifiable lessons"

Yeah, let's go with that one. It sounds much better than saying I flunked this week's lesson. But in my own defense, it has been a crazy week. We're trying to refinance our house (Do you have any idea how hard that is to do now? Sheesh!) so it's been a whirlwind of home improvement projects. Remember the shutter incident? I'm still recovering from that one. But the shutters are now all up and they're lovely. The trim on the first floor of our house is all freshly painted. The house is, dare I say it? Clean! Okay, if not clean, the mess is well hidden in every cupboard and closet I could find. Like the shutters, it all looks great as long as you don't look too hard.

One might suggest that I take from all this the lesson that if I would just keep up with these things, I wouldn't have to rush to do them at the last minute. Meh. I won't be learning that lesson. But I did learn that I'm in serious need of a chiropractor right about now. My back has learned all new ways to hurt. Wish I didn't learn that one...

Ready for some funny? Then jump on over to the Life is Funny blog carnival. It's (mostly) pain-free!

Are you moving? Why all the home improvement projects?

It sounds like you've had a productive (if tiring) week. :-)

Now, see? You did learn something after all!

Sounds to me like you learned alot!

I am not good at keeping up with stuff, either.
I get too distracted.
I know. Who would have thought...?

With all of that going on, you are excused from learning anything.

I wonder sometimes if I really learn anything too. Hope you take it easy after all that work and your back feels better.

You're so smart.

So you learned that sometimes just getting thru the week is good enough! :)
