Lessons in life

Things I've learned in the past few days....

If you wash your cell phone (or in my case, your daughter's cell phone) in the washing machine, get it out as soon as you remember, take the battery out, and put in a bowl of rice for 2 days. It will work again!! 

As long as you get the low-rise jeans, you can keep wearing your small size when you get a prednisone belly, because it sits BELOW the belly and not on it. :) Kinda like guys with their beer guts. (so that's how they do it)

People in other cars DO NOT hear you when you yell at them from inside your car. Somehow it still might make you feel better though.

Christmas "bargains" aren't really "bargains" at all! Go figure.

You cannot possibly finish all of your Christmas shopping when everything you see would look good in YOUR house!! :)

Impulse buys are not a good thing.

Stamps are expensive.. when did they go up to $0.42??

Chocolate DOES make your blood sugar go up, no matter how much you deny it.

A sodium-free diet is impossible!

A sugar-free diet is impossible!

And last, but not least... good friends and family are priceless, but of course I already knew this.

This made me laugh so hard! I especially liked the one about yelling at people in your car! I totally relate! LOL


Loved the tip about the cell phone. I know someone who has washed her son's cell phone at least once and had to toss it. I'll give her this idea with her Christmas present.

Love the low-rise jeans idea too. I don't get a prednisone belly, but sometimes a "too much food" belly. -Grin-

You are priceless. :)

LOL Oh, those are great!! I liked the one about not finishing the Christmas shoppping. Hmmm, so that's why I've still got so much shopping to do! But my home looks fabulous! :D

Hope you're feeling good today! :)
