Things that I have learned in 2008

1. Life without flavored creamer is not as good. I would rather go without DINNER than go without flavored creamer in the morning.
2. Multitasking is overrated.
3. The "Tree" wall scent from Bath and Body Works really does smell like a Christmas tree.
4. Spending an hour over coffee with a friend is always one of my favorite parts of my week.
5. Being BRAVE takes less energy than hiding in fear.
6. I cannot brush my daughter's hair when I am angry.
7. Apparently, you have to change your heating filter more than once a year.
8. It costs $100 to have someone come out and tell you to change your filter.
9. I can be an artist AND a business woman.
10. No matter how long ago someone has passed away, it is still a shock...and the tears and memories flood back when least expected.
11. My perfectionism is a major drag..."good enough" is okay, especially in cleaning, cookie making, dinner, and laundry. Good enough means I can relax and enjoy the journey. Good enough means that what I do has no bearing on my worth as a person.
12. It doesn't matter how many cloth shopping bags I own...I will always forget to bring them into the store.
13. Grinding your own coffee beans really does make the coffee taste better.
14. Texting is fun.
15. (insert your learned thing here). :)

I would love to hear what you all have learned...leave a comment and we can all share in the magical blogging love.
