In college, I used to post Things I Learned Today on my AIM profile each day. I would also copy and save it to a Things I Learned Today document on my computer. I guess it was sort of like my journal, although recently I read it and had no recollection of about half of the things I wrote about. It was fun to read, and it brought back a lot of memories of good times, and stressful times, and really drama-filled times. Living with other girls just tends to bring the drama. Anyways, reading this ancient document made me miss Things I Learned Today. It was a really good way to summarize each day and also to see the humor in life’s situations. So, starting today, October 20th, 2010, I am vowing to begin Things I Learned Today anew. I will try to post everyday. If I don’t post anything, know it was a truly boring day, or I only learned things that I can’t post to a public forum without getting in trouble. Hopefully, someone will want to read this. If not, at least I will have a record of what I have learned to look back on someday and laugh.
- I am an avid Tennessee Titans fan, so there will be a lot of comments about football.
- I watch waaaay too much tv. I also watch a lot of movies, which I like to review on this blog.
- My husband is a police officer, so sometimes I learn things from him. Of course, sometimes I learn things I’m not allowed to tell people. This makes me feel important and awful, because I am terrible at keeping secrets!
- I have two dogs- a big fuzzy mutt named Scrappy Doo and a redtick beagle named Georgia who is dumb as dirt. (The vet thinks she was inbred.) They often teach me things that I wish they hadn’t.
- I have a two-year-old son, Sammy, who I unbiasedly believe is the cutest kid in the world. He has taught me so much, and I know will probably continue teaching me things for the rest of his life. 🙂
- I am a former elementary school teacher who is now a part-time SAHM. I work at a Mother’s Day Out two days a week in the 4-year-old classroom. It is all the fun parts of teaching without the crappy paperwork and administrators. 🙂 I also tutor two elementary-age boys after school every weekday. They are a challenge!
