Things I Have Learned...

this week:

1)  To never, ever blog when I am tired.  I apologize for all of the 
mistakes I made in my last few posts.  Wow.  Humbled.  Me.

2)  That I have the greatest followers ever!  You all leave the nicest,
sweetest, encouraging comments.  I thank you!

3)  I am a terrible juggler.  I think I've got it covered
only to realize I am usually just running in circles.

4)  When I turned 50, I kept asking myself how I was
supposed to act like a 50 year old.  I still feel like I'm 18 or 20.
I'm quickly approaching another birthday and I still don't know
how to be a 50 something year old.

5)  I hate housework.  

6)  I've lived in Minnesota for 99% of my life yet
I STILL get suckered by early spring weather.
Hard frost last night.  Hoping for the best.

7)  I made it through Prom.
Now it's onto graduation.
Look for my Pink Solo Cup post coming

8)  I'm so thankful I know who my real friends are.

9)  I hate housework.

And finally?

10)  That I spend too much time blogging
but I so love it!

Have you learned anything lately?

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I hate housework too. x1000000000

You have learned a lot !!!! Never, never ever, feel your age--always keep that youthful exuberance, an open mind, a willingness to change with the times, and a happy heart. Have a great day, Jill. Mickie :)

Donna said...

Hahaaa...I try to avoid house work but it follows me around...
I'll be 61 in August...I Thought I was still 45!! What Happened???Hahaaa...

Blogging is addictive and I'm sure there is a program somewhere we should all join but as long as we're having fun that is all that counts.

I didn't notice any mistakes/typos. You my friend are an expert juggler...I don't know how in the world you accomplished all that you did on Saturday to make Becky's day perfect. You are a GREAT mom.

I'm past 50 something and still have not learned how to act my age.
A young mind in a wiser body is fine.

this was cute. :)

Lynne said...

I have learned to appreciate my right hand . . . Oh my . . .

Mike said...

I rarely think of my age anymore. Eventhough, most folks I interact with are younger than me, now. 50 is merely a number to keep track of time, not your age.

Donna said...

I've learned quite a bit about us this morning - while I don't hate housework, I'm not fond of doing it anymore.

And, on my next birthday I turn the big 60 - and I still feel 25! I look better than most of the stars in their 30's and 40's without makeup.

I didn't notice any mistakes in your last post - guess because I don't look at the mistakes people are making, only the friendship in my heart for them. I look so forward in their sharing their lives with me, any mistakes they, or I, make are overlooked!

I treasure our friendship and look forward to your wonderful photos and stories on your blog!

That's quite a bit for one morning! Have a wonderful day, Jill!

Gentle hugs,

Hi Jill. Hopefully I learn something new every day. I am happy to hear that you made it through prom. I hope you posted some pictures. I will have to visit your last few posts. Hope you have a beautiful day.

Hi Jill,
Hrmmmm...about age...you act as you feel. I am headin' 45 soon and still don't know how to act...well, I do what I usually do...being me self [tehee] so, don't worry ;)
I've learned this week that things don't last forever. Moving to my own place tomorrow...I'm ok though...but life is changing!
Have a great week!

I have learned that I was able to love and I mean fall in love again after a 17 year marriage gone bad. I love house work and I especially love ironing. I love the blog world and now doing videos. I have not learned that firends do exist. I have yet to find one that will listen and be your friend through good and bad.
TFs. Love this post.

Gloria Hood said...

nanny said...

I didn't notice one mistake....no, not one.

I've learned and keep learning that time is going by waaay to fast. It's hard to get everything done in a day that I want to do. I always want to read blogs and post but many days I just can't get it done. It's not because I am not thinking of you all!!

I've learned that I'm not the only one who hates house work. I love your Blogs Jill, We are always more critical of our own work....i see no mistakes in your blogging, keep them coming girlfriend :)

P.S. My flowers made it through the frost....whew

Walking on Sunshine... said...

Well, I never noticed any mistakes! Good list of things you've learned. My list would be too long to mention! Enjoy your day!

Ellie said...

The amount of times I've posted a blog and seen the amount of mistakes and that's after I've proof read it. I certainly didn't notice any mistakes in your post.
I also hate housework and I turn 51 this year (ouch) but definately DON'T feel it.
I love blogging and reading fellow bloggers post to much too - it's so much fun :))

Lisa said...

Oh, I was going to say exactly what Ellie said. I ALWAYS proofread my posts, always. And I always go back and find mistakes. It drives me crazy!

I'll be 50 in another year and a half. I feel your pain!

Saun said...

I've learned two puppies are a handful but I do love them :)

Debbie said...

#11...you are way to hard on yourself!!

#12....we love you!!

i always proof read my comments after i hit publish, what's the point at that point!!

and i loath housework but love to decorate and organize things, there is a difference!!

i spend way too much time on my computer and i don't care, that's what i have learned!!

Furry Bottoms said...

What have I learned? I've certainly learned that I am who I am online, and much less so in real life. And I've learned that is not always a good thing... but I don't think I am going to change anytime soon! I like who I am online, because it's who I feel I really am.

Dawn's Craft Place said...

I have learned I am not good at saying NO!!! lol
I have stretched myself as far as I can go and hope I bounce back.
Hope your recouping from this weekend

I hate housework too and do as little as possible. :-)

Paula said...

I've learned I'm old enough to do what I want when I want. Well almost. I couldn't notice your mistakes when I make so many.

Points 5 and 9 I agree with strongly:) It really interferes with life:)

What are thoose?


Greetings from Minneapolis!


Nancy Claeys said...

I believe to be a blogger, you must learn to hate housework. The two just don't go together very well. Lol.

I need to learn not to have phone conversations when I am tired and/or stressed. Not a good combo.

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

OH! I hear ya Jill!! So much to do SO little time! Blog when you can...days go by and I MISS blogging! I MISS touching base with all of you and when I do it is SO enjoyable!

I still feel 30! FOR SURE! :)

Have a FANTASTIC day!

Susan said...

QUIT being so hard on yourself!Are you feeling tired, discouraged, what?
Whatever it is, it's ok, you are human and we're not perfect. I'm 60 and I don't feel it, well, let's just say my body does, but my spirit doesn't. So many times our spirit is willing but the body says "what the heck are you thinking?" You are going thru a busy time of year when you have kids. It will be over soon.
And blessed summer will come.Hang in there and take care!

Red Rose Alley said...

First of all, I love your new Header! The colors are perfect for spring. I spend too much time blogging too, but isn't it fun? Happy Wednesday.

Tammy said...

That you really hate housework...you listed it twice ...lol. I continue to fight the battle for a clean house, but lost the war long ago....maybe when the kids finally leave the nest, it will be clean, but then, It will be Oh So lonely.

momto8 said...

EG CameraGirl said...

Housework? What's that? :))

Marie said...

HA! We're both in the same boat and went to the same school ;)

Sandra said...

Love this picture of you. We could be sisters! :)

Jill, I love this post. My mom is 77 and says that in her heart she still sees herself as a young woman. I love #7 too.
