7 months is really a long time.
It's soooo much more than half a year.
In terms of high school relationships, it's like, forever.
Then again, it's only 7 months, not even a year.
How are you feeling about this?
I'm talking about our relationship, hello.
You and me?
We have this thing, and we have had it since May..ifyoumustknow.
I'm going to act like I'm not hurt, that you don't remember.
But I am.
I don't know about you, but I have learned A LOT in the past 7 months..sheesh!
-Jennifer Lopez is the ONLY person who can make wedding planning look fun.
-Don't use casting material that expired in the late 70's.
-Never underestimate the power of the "high" slow cooker setting. Read: Volcanic Inferno.
-Check the washer/dryer routinely to be sure that they are working. (The Hondurans WILL wash their clothes by hand, with soap and a rock, and NOT tell you 'machina no worky'.)
-Teddie will NEVER pass up a chance to throw you under the bus...so don't stand by the road.
-Security cameras are the way to go.
-Hydraulic fluid is NOT blue.
-Never belittle the size of the bun that a relatively normal oven can produce.
-Eddie often puts things other than feed into the feed wagon.
-Cousins are some of the best friends you never knew you had.
-Don't shake off that sudden urge/thought to tell someone that they are important to you. There is a reason you feel that way.
-It is possible to find your best friend, and get engaged to them.
-Sometimes you must lose your way, to find your family.
I have learned lots more than that, I am certain.
The theme I will continue to live by and take into 2012 with me, is best summed up in this quote by Dr. Seuss;
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter."
God is always good.
