What I’ve Learned In My Life So Far

I've learned that...


Very true. Especially the tangled Christmas lights.

Do you agree? What other things tell you a lot about a person?

  1. So very true! Good quote. A couple things that tell me about people is if they pay promptly and if they can make it to an appointment on time (or if they can do what they say they'll do). In my extended family the saying is "Five minutes early, but not one second late." If anyone of us is late to a family get-together there's talk of excommunication.

    1. Two very good points, Bethany, especially punctuation! That's important to me.

    1. It takes patience to untangle lights, which really says a lot about someone!

  5. Yep, so true! I'd add: a computer that isn't cooperating.

  6. I'm not so happy about lost luggage, but the other two are no problem. Here in the midwest we appreciate the rain as it is the life blood of crops and keeps lawns green. At other times of year rain means it isn't snowing, and I don't have to shovel anything.

    1. I wouldn't be happy about lost luggage either. That could really put a damper on things!

    1. Most definitely! That's always the first thing I notice about people.

  8. I go crazy. Just kidding. Rain - I love it. Luggage - just call me tomorrow. Happened to me recently. I wore my husbands clothes until my luggage arrived. I take pride in tangling wires - curling iron, electrical cords, the list goes on.

  9. Maybe I shouldn't tempt fate, but I've got all of these under control! Rainy day ~ big, fat book. Lost luggage ~ You should see me pack my under the seat carryon: everything I need (meds, curling iron, computer and camera, big fat book, toothbrush, deodorant, and spare underwear (bought by me, because I expect Santa putting pressies under my tree!). Tangled tree lights ~ my Dad taught me how to put them away when they come off the tree so they won't be tangled when I use them again. Sticking to a schedule, picking up phone messages, checking email ~ that's where I run into trouble! LOL! Have a great day, Martha!

    1. That is a great way to handle lost luggage (should that happen)! I'll have to consider that next time I get on an airplane. And I don't really mind rainy days unless I had plans for a rode trip or some outing that I've been looking forward to. Or if there was a festival or outdoor event that has been ruined by the rain. That's not fun. But curling up with a good book on a rainy day that I have no plans on? I'm a happy camper! And like you, I put away Christmas lights nicely, so there are never any tangles.Makes it so much easier the next year!

  10. I love that quote. And so true. In fact yesterday I was in fact 'trying' to untangle some Xmas lights. And may I add, much swearing ensued!!! :)

    What does that say about me, I wonder? Crikey ...

    1. Hahaha! I always enjoy your comments, Wendy. And I LOVE the word 'Crikey'. Such a cool word.

  11. I LOVE tangled Xmas tree lights just as much as tangled yarn and tangled just about anything. I can sit down and go at it until the project is complete. Such satisfaction!

    1. She is a very cool lady! Well, technically she was, but you know what I mean. Someone like her never truly dies.

  13. One thing i always notice, Martha, is whether or not someone is listening while we are talking......I always look at their eyes.
    I don't mind a rainy day at all and my grandmother taught how to unravel yarn, so I think I could handle the tree lights.

    1. I totally agree with you, Jim; the eyes say it all. I do the same. Unraveling yarn is a great way to learn patience. I'm very detail-oriented and focused, so untangling lights doesn't bother me in the least.
