I’m pretty sure I have a cold.
And yet . . . I mopped this morning. Since, y’know, it’s Thursday and all.
Why, thank you. Yes, yes I am rather proud of that accomplishment.
In order to allow myself time to go rest for a bit before picking up the boys, I’m just going to share a quick
beginning-of-the-year decision I made. As I’ve mentioned before, I chose to not make New Year’s Resolutions, but instead tried to implement a few quick changes that would make things easier in the New Year.
So here’s one.
I threw away the pretty-little-red-wreath-thingy that has been sitting on my fireplace for over a year. It had a large candle in the middle of it (which I never burned), and served to add a little color.
Fine . . . except that it was a constant source of irritation because of this:
It left droppings.
And inevitably, as soon as I cleaned around it, someone under the age of 10 would toss something in its general direction, and there would instantly be . . . more droppings.
Now? No more droppings. One less thing for my Slob Vision to ignore.
