I’m sitting here this afternoon wondering what to do. It’s not that there isn’t anything to do. There are about ten things I could be doing and I don’t feel like doing any of them. And I feel like doing all of them.
Anyone else ever feel that way?
Finally told myself one of my life mantras: Do the next thing (which is loosely translated: get up and do anything other than sitting here thinking about what to do first). So I got up and put things away, started some laundry, and cleaned up a mess that Caroline made while I was trying to do the other things. And got a Pepsi so I will have some energy to do the next next thing.
Now I’m back at my desk and need to choose something to do. So I’m writing here because it is something.
Have you priced rental cars lately? Yeesh. We have to rent a car for a few days this weekend/early next week because our car needs servicing and they need it for a couple of days to do it all. It’s crazy what you have to pay just to rent a car. It’s a whole lot cheaper than having a second car payment or even paying insurance on a second car, but still. Yuck. Feels like $200 completely wasted.
Found out that the strawberry farm where we get our strawberries plowed under all their Early Glow strawberry plants after last year. I am in mourning. On a brighter note I found a place that sells Early Glow strawberry plants and ships them all over the US. So all we have to do is find a house that actually has sunshine and we can grow our own. We priced having our neighbor’s trees cut back and it was $600 to have them thinned. You can imagine how long thinning would last. They wouldn’t cut them back for fear of the tree’s health. (What about my health?) I can’t imagine we could grow enough of anything in our backyard to make back $600 right away so we put in hostas instead. Only problem is you can’t eat hostas. Oh well.
Well, I think I’ve sufficiently passed enough time that I’m ready to go on to the next thing. Anyone else have anything inconsequential to share?
