I've seen this on a few blogs I love and since I can't seem to think of anything else interesting to post today, I thought I'd play along too. Most of the posts I've read have been thoughtful ones about what God has been showing people, or what they're learning about themselves--you know, deep stuff.
I'm not feeling all that deep today, so here's a sampling of not-so-serious things I've learned this week:
1. I learned that if you're going to send out a district wide email about the Gifted and Talented program in your school district, it would be a good idea to spell "gifted" correctly. Or at least hit spell check. I wish I could tell you that my district was inspiring confidence in me these days, but that wouldn't be true.
2. I learned that there are some honest repairmen in this world. John called a guy to come take a look at our barely-functioning garage door and the guy gave him some things to try before he made a service call. It worked! John was able to fix it and we saved mucho money!
3. I learned that it cost more to have a suede shirt dry cleaned than it does for me to get my hair cut. Shocking. More about this on my No-Spend Challenge recap this weekend.
4. I learned that my oven has a self-cleaning feature. No joke. I've lived in this house for 5 years and didn't realize that until last weekend. (You're not allowed to ask if I've cleaned my oven in five years).
5. I learned that you can cook steel cut oats overnight in the crockpot, and that steel cut oats aren't your normal run-of-the-mill oats.
6. I also learned that these muffins are really good with some raw sunflower seeds and coconut mixed in. We've had them for breakfast twice this week! (Healthy and low-fat too!)
