SURPRISING THINGS I'VE DISCOVERED LATELY
- •I like weight-lifting. 💪🏻Don't get me wrong, I'm a total novice. You'd probably laugh at how light my weights are. But I've been doing it for 3 weeks now, and I'm noticing my body getting stronger!
- •Internet friends are real friends.In the last year or so I've grown away from several friends. With one notable exception, I feel like I don't connect with a lot of people locally. (Aka I'm really liberal & a public-school mom living in a conservative, home-schooling bubble.) But luckily I've found some great internet friends whom I talk to daily, and it's really filled a void. Even if my husband calls them my "fake friends". 😉
- •I like beans.This sounds dumb, but I was THE world's pickiest eater as a kid. As I grow older I like more and more foods, and I discovered legumes this year! Chickpea soup, huevos rancheros, black bean tostadas, even LENTILS guys. It's crazy town around here.
- •If I slow down, everyone is happier.I grew up with an ex-military dad who harped on punctuality, and I'm an ENTJ, so I like bossing people around. But lately I've been realizing that a LOT of the stress in our family is caused by me. If I just let my kids and husband do things at their own (slow & inefficient 😜) paces, everyone gets along better. So I'm trying VERY hard to not care that my house is messier & that we're occasionally a few minutes late. 😁
