Things I Learned Today / Friday, June 25, 2021

Things I learned today…(afternoon edition)

I truly believe that when you get excited about a new goal, take the slightest step forward toward it, and make the first bit of effort, the “dark” part of the universe will get a whiff of it all. It will circle and begin to poke you with little jabs. It will send you kinks and nay-sayers, inconveniences and doubts. It’s how you handle those things that determines your success. And I think how you handle those things is purely your CHOICE.

Today is one of those days when I have to do chores because I am supposed to be a responsible adult, definitely NOT because I want to.

We are having, smoked sausage, peas and cornbread for dinner. And I’m excited about staying at home. Hell, I always want to stay at home. (except when I want to travel)

I think one of the draws to travel for me is the anonymity. You go to a faraway place, and nobody knows you. You can just be you, get lost in the crowd, and not really answer to anyone. (That’s is, until someone hears us talking and is intrigued by our Southern accent, then here we go.) We do love talking to people when we travel, though.

People in this house have no regard for keeping socks in a pair. They might as well be disposable…the socks, not the people.

Dusting in this house should be an Olympic sport.

Buy yourself some new underwear. Seriously. It’ll change your life. And Ladies, make it all match. You’ll truly feel like you have your life together. You won’t, of course, but you’ll feel all put together. And buy that man some. You’ve seen his; they’re atrocious. Get him those good Duluth ones. He acts like he doesn’t even care, and God bless his bones, he probably doesn’t… but he’ll LOVE some new ones. Throw all the old ones in the trash. Do it.

Oh, I got me a new computer for writing.

I think I’ll make a pot of coffee.

That’s all. We learn everyday, don’t we?
