I’m feeling a lot better about life these days (notwithstanding the fact that I hit the snooze button about 5 times this morning), so I decided it was time to be miscellaneous.
• Reading my quotes for the day on my iGoogle page, this one just jumped out at me: You don't get anything clean without getting something else dirty. - Cecil Baxter This is so true!! I think that perhaps we’ve reached the root of my haphazard cleaning habits. For every mess I have to consider what I’m going to use to clean it up. It’s kind of debilitating, actually. What? You don’t think he was talking about household cleaning?
• And here’s another gem from This Day in History on my iGoogle page: 1920: US Postal Service rules children may not be sent via parcel post. I think that’s pretty self explanatory.
• Dr. M did a post about the waterfall & covered bridge we saw on Saturday. Go here to look at it. Yesterday we went out after church & found two more covered bridges, including the one we were looking for on Saturday. You’ll get to see pictures of those next Saturday.
• I had many separate issues going on which made me post this on Thursday, but here is one of the issues that repeatedly beats me down & yet I never seem to “get” it: When I have an unpleasant task ahead of me I stew, push it to the back of my mind where it stews some more, growing larger & larger until I can barely lift my head for all the stew. For example, I received my surgery packet a few weeks ago. It sat unopened on my desk at home for a couple of weeks. Then it sat for a few days on my desk at work. Friday morning I finally opened the thing, read through it, made a list of things I needed to do, & voila! I was about 20 pounds lighter. I worked like a maniac, bounced around, & then generally made a nuisance of myself with Dr. M later that night with being so ebullient. So, perhaps next time I have an unpleasant task ahead I should just do it. Like eating your peas first (except I like peas, so bad example).
OK, I think that’s enough to get you through the day. Have a great one!
