What I Learned in February

What I Learned this month
I have learned that I don't love snow...or ice...or cold.  I am the Scrooge of winter.  In other news
I also learned that they actually make battery powered heated socks...

I have learned that you are never too old to be homesick.  My parents moved from my childhood home this summer and I have ached and longed to sit in front of its big fireplace all winter long. (see cold feet above)

I have learned that what messes life up most is that we have a preconceived notion of what it's supposed to be.  I have read a quote several times saying as much, but I read an excellent article by Sally Clarkson that drove that point home.

E.T. the Extra Terrestrial DVD

I have learned that whether you are 6 or 36, ET is probably going to make you cry.  We had a family movie night this weekend and while my boys aren't quite old enough to "get" it, my daughter loved it.  She cried, I cried...I somehow felt like I was doing something right as a parent!\

So what did you learn in February?  Anything you're hoping to learn in March?
