My learning curve

I had to give myself a pat on the back today. I came to the conclusion that I have been very teachable in the last year. Here are some of the personal learning projects I have taken on in the last year.

Digital photography
Blogging and understanding blogger (now have folks asking ME for advice on how it works!)
Learning to eat healthier
Coming to understand and embrace the things a eliptical trainer can do for me
Learning to dress more professionally
Learning Powerpoint and creating powerpoint projects
Leading a group at VBS
Doing a junior camp (grades 3-5)--I had never done anything but youth camps before this year
Bleaching one's hair 101
Got my first cell phone and learned how to program it
Learned how to negotiate auctions on EBAY
Officiated my first wedding in 5 years
Leading the creation of a second service at our church
Learned not to send flowers to someone's workplace as a surprise
Taught an all-women's adult Sunday School class for the first time

I always encourage others to be teachable. It is good to see that at least in some small ways in the last year I have practiced what I preach.

You certainly have accomplished a lot in the past year, Friar Tuck.

Why did you have to create a second service at your church?

No, no, no...don't learn not to send flowers. Never learn not to send flowers...if I taught you that, I taught you a bad lesson, and I apologize.

Too many double negatives...sorry.

Wowsers! I'm impressed.

The eating healthy and elliptical is great...but not fun..I'm in that same predicament!
My mom would be so proud of you for the Ebay one! My dad had to ban her from ebay for awhile..she was obsessed...setting the alarm for 3am to make sure she got the last bid! ha
And...let's face it...you are a brave soul taking on the All Woman's Sunday school class! WAY TO GO!
