232: words of wisdom...

howdy y'all.

i'm over at Crazy Hip Blog Mamas cuz i haven't been in a coon's age. i'm right on time for the latest, Collaboration (#45)

they're asking what words of wisdom have been passed down to me through the years, by a family member, a teacher, or somebody similar.

the best career advice i've ever gotten was from my momma, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day. when i was in 9th grade, she said if i learned to type i would always have a job. so i took one semester of typing.

and she was right.

when i lived with my grandma while i attended high school, grandma would always admonish me about laying around in my clothes after i came in from school. she said if they weren't dirty, i could hang them up and wear them another day.

i thought she was crazy. what the heck did i know back then?

when i became my own Principle Laundry Do-er, i began to understand what grandma meant. i repeat it to baby bliss all the time. maybe she'll get it sooner than i did.

thanks g-ma and grandma for the good advice. it's served me well over the years. '-)

now hold on to your own bon conseil for a little while longer and get on over to Crazy Hip Blog Mamas to check out the good advice other folk got.

don't forget to share yours.

I agree with the typing thing! now I'm a quick blogger! I'm still working on hanging up my clothes and I am the one who does oodles of laundry around here! I just got my energy saving washing machine though! going greeen! not green enough to wash them in a tub though!

Candace, there are very few things i'll wash very few things in the tub. usually my bikini when i get a shower after a swim. LOL

i do wish i had a clothesline tho. i love the outdoor smell of laundry hung in the fresh air. :-)

The typing thing is so true. In college I signed up with a temp agency and the only skill required for half the jobs was typing. Everyone should learn to type.

Happier Girl, temp agencies have been my life savers more than a few times. thank God for 'em. :-)

Typing always a good thing! Definitely agree. Temp agencies are a beautiful thing!
