There’s a lot of things I just don’t get the first time around. OK, there’s a lot of things I don’t get the 1500th time around. Rather than call myself a dunce I’m going to go with being a slow learner. Here’s the run down of lessons are particularly difficult for me.
Don’t drink. I will get a headache and be extraordinarily weepy the next day. Yet, I never remember that when someone offers to pour me a scotch. On the plus side I’ve managed to “just say no” to wine and beer.
Go to bed. But I just want to finish my book or watch one more tv show. I’ve got all the excuses and all the crankitude to go with them the next morning.
Have a snack. I love eating, no clue why it’s such a chore to remember to feed myself instead of having a blood sugar meltdown, nearly everyday.
Get good people. I’ve written about this before, surrounding yourself with your awesome people and I do a great job of this online. But very few real people. How do adults make friends outside of their computer?
Do. Again, this has been reinforced many a time. Still I spend more time than I am willing to admit to in public wailing on and on about what I should do and very little time actually doing. Shut up already and get busy.
Is there a Nanny McPhee for grown ups? Send her and her magic stick to help with my 5 lessons.
