Things I Learned This Week

Life has been crazy lately and I've found myself more out of my element than I have since middle school. We've been doing a lot of adulting with this whole new house business and I've learned a few things about myself and life in general. So here is what my running on three hours of sleep self has to share:
  • Refrigerators are expensive. Like $2,500 expensive. I was sticker shocked when we first began shopping.
  • I thoroughly enjoy working with local businesses.
  • Drinking caffeine past 3 p.m. means I can't fall asleep until 3 a.m.
  • Grown adults have more issues following simple directions than two year olds.
  • Rainbow Play Systems has amazing costumer service. I can only speak for our local dealer in Urbandale, Iowa, but they have been phenomenal to work with!
  • Alternative facts.
  • Post an ad on Craigslist (to sell an item) and you get THE BEST emails in response. Seriously fantastic entertainment and only slightly aggravating.
  • 3 words: Tangerine Red Bull. This is a re-learning. I drank this A LOT on our road trips last summer and haven't had one since our Labor Day weekend trip. I was given one at an event last weekend and since then they've helped me cope with so many late nights.
  • Another re-learning: how to pack a box. I learned how to expertly pack a box for shipping purposes and this week I was taught again how to pack boxes for both shipping and moving.
