Lessons from the Weekend

1. Julia Child was 6'2". Also, a really fascinating woman if
Julie & Julia is any indication. Great movie, and I expect to add it to my will-watch-it-anytime-it's-on list.

2. When cleaning out the toy box, I really need to get the toys out of sight before the boy starts playing with all of them again.

3. Sometimes, I wish antidepressants were available in blow dart form. I'd hit the streets loaded for bear.

4. I never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever want to be in a ground war in the Pacific. Thank you, HBO for giving me another glimpse of a life I never want.

5. Butter sauce risotto ROCKS.

6. Warm weather is a rare jewel to be cherished and admired when you live in Wisconsin.

7. I need to stop slacking on my blog. (That particular lesson is one I've been learning over the last few weeks, not just the weekend.)

What did you learn?

OMG! That's funny! That's what I said this morning when I posted my blog. That I had to stop slacking that is. :D Don't know about the others, but I'll agree I don't want to be in a ground war.

Great post!

What did I learn this weekend? That vanity leads to sunburn. I didn't want to mess with my side bangs part, and now my scalp hurts. Sigh.

Also, zombie novels don't have to be gross.

OK, butter sauce rissotto does sound like it rocks. ;)

Mmmm...that risotto sounds delicious!

I learned that if I claim I need extra prep time for dinner, it gets me out of pulling weeds. Then I can go inside and play on Twitter while the meal bakes and the husband digs in the dirt.

The risotto with straight up delicious.

And I love your weekend lessons, everyone.

Thanks for popping in!

I learned that chaperoning twelve-year-olds on a camp out is a lot like herding cats and then trying to bathe them. That, and those kids just don't sleep. Four a.m., and there are still flashlight flickers and stupid prank attempts.

I learned that one Little Debbie snack cake is delicious, but two Lil' Debbies are divine. Love your list!
