What I learned this week is hosted by Jo-Lynn over at Musings of a Housewife. Jo-lynn also posted a ton of reviews on her review site this week - check them out!


It is amazing what can change in just a few minutes. I had every intention of posting this as a "weekend wrap up" post. I was busy uploading the photos to link to and everything.

Then I stepped out front with Lauren and while standing on the edge of the porch I decided I wanted to walk around a bit. To get down from where I was standing you have to cross a 2 foot rock bed. Big woop right. Right.

But when I went to JUMP I took a little pansy leap instead.

I have never looked before I lept before in my life (just ask Grams)

I took the SAFE WAY off the porch. The EASY WAY over the rocks.

I looked before I lept.

I realized it the minute I landed. I was shocked. I think I even spoke outloud what I was thinking in my head.

"Wow I must be getting old"

Damn.

Good lesson! I mentioned you and the contest briefly in the post. I'll say more tomorrow when I put up Lindsey's attempts at a poem!

I've always been the cautious type. But there are other things that are making me realize how old I am.

Courtney said...

oh my goodness, I totally thought this was going to end up horribly as well!

I thought you were going to say you'd landed on something and hurt yourself, glad that didn't happen.
Very funny.

Kim H. said...

Oh thank God it was just a pansy-wansy leap. I thought you were going to post that you broke something.

Jen said...

You make me laugh - but since we've had our fair share of ankle injuries here from you know, NOT looking before leaping, I can say...good move!
