What I Learned This Week - Random

I learned this week that the Target bakery requires 48 hours to decorate a cake. Most grocery stores require 24 hours and do not have a cake decorator working on Sundays.

I learned that kids do not really care how the cake is decorated. They just want cake.

I learned that spending a weekend with my son will require me to play video games and watch movies about racing, kung fu and superheros.

I learned that boys - no matter what age - do not like to shop.

I learned that even though people will disappoint me that they are most likely doing the best they can.

I learned that saying no to a couple things this week allowed me to be a nicer mommy and wife.

I learned that when I don't blog, you will email me to see how I am doing. Thanks. :)

I learned that when I don't blog or Twitter or Facebook, I get laundry done.

For more lessons learned this week, head over to Musings of a Housewife.

Video games, racing and kung fu...sounds like a weekend at my house!

Target needs 48 hours...really? I love their cakes but haven't had to order one before. I will have to keep that in mind.

Amen to getting things done when you don't blog or Twitter! I have piles waiting RIGHT NOW. Time to get off this old 'puter and putter around the house a little. Have a great day!

Anita said...

I like this random list! No Target Bakery near me, but good to keep in mind.
I play a lot of wii with my son when I'm doing what he wants, it can wear me out. My son doesn't mind shopping as long as it's mostly for him.
I agree about getting things done when you stop blogging and facebook......ugh, a good plan for my day!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!

Hmmm... Do you really need clean clothes? Doing laundry is overrated really. Blogging and twittering are much more important! :o)

Courtney said...

great list! and I am loving the lesson on say 'no'!!!

Allison said...

I think most of us are having that epiphany about the last one!

Great list. Have a great week.

Kristin said...

The Target 48 hr thing has burned me, too! And I think I know what you spent a little of your "free time" doing yesterday.... thanks again! :)

Emily B said...

I blog and Facebook between the loads. =) It's my reward for a chore that I have no great love for.

Lindsay said...

hehe ooh great lessons. Didn't know that about bakerys.. good tip to put in there for the next birthday! I get so much more done when I leave my computer off :-P

This was too cute. I also learned that laundry seems to be a lot less when I'm not blogging.

GladMom24 said...

ahh...maybe that's why my laundry pile never gets any smaller ;)

Terra said...

I have learned that same cake lesson. Not a fun one.

Musings of a Housewife said...

What a fun list. And so true about boys. And what Target has a bakery, anyway? I've never seen one of those.

Hairline Fracture said...

Good to know about Target--although ours isn't a Super Target, so we don't have a bakery.

I can do laundry in between reading blogs; it's the other chores that get neglected!

fortyb4forty said...

Target makes cakes? I live in the between two Targets and neither makes cakes....so sad.
I have 3 boys and mine do like shopping as long as it includes a legos...

The Tree Swing said...

logan must be weird then, lol he likes to shop with mommy especially grocery shopping !

Bj's can do it in 24 hrs, they have great cake.

I dislike laundry more than anything, lol

That's why we are doing muffins for my 2 year old's birthday this Sat!

Jenn Peacock said...
