Things Learned So Far in 2010

To start off this post, I must sadly report that a very tragic thing has happened and it will greatly effect the posts I make until it is fixed. Yes, to start off the things I've learned in 2010 so far is that it is not a very smart move to kayak behind a four wheeler with a camera in a sweatshirt pocket. In fact, if you do this it is very possible that the camera will fly out into the snow and will not be found. Even if your camera is a bright pink, which normally could be easily found, it won't be found, not even if you use a metal detector! Yes, I am sad to report that pictures of Shrewsbury happenings are on hold until I get a replacement camera. Lesson definitely learned on that one!

Another lesson I have learned is that it is not a good idea to try to hard boil an egg in the microwave. I also learned that directions from the internet on how to hard boil an egg in the microwave are not correct. In fact, I learned that you cannot put an egg in a microwave safe boil, cover it with water, and put it in the microwave for 10 minutes. If you do happen to do this, it is very possible that the egg will explode and make a noise as if you have been shot. The egg will smell awful and you get to clean up a huge mess! I do not recommend this at all. I recommend doing the old fashioned hard boiled eggs on the stove, even if you are trying to save time. It could end up looking something like this...

I have learned that snow days are awesome, although I really should be getting to student teach, but I won't complain! I have not learned what it feels like to work for an entire 5 day week. I actually have not had a full work week for the entire year of 2010. I will soon learn I am sure, but for now I enjoy being able to say that! :)

Finally, Sam and I have learned that all you need is an awesome real estate agent and you can get the house you've been looking for! We have been looking for a house for quite some time and gave up for a little while, but decided to get back on the bandwagon and start over with a new real estate agent. We are very happy to announce that we are officially under contract on a house and will be closing March 31st! We are SUPER excited about it all! I would share pictures, but you know what happened to that!
