To The Beat Of My Own Drum
The time is just past 6 a.m. As I scroll through the internet with one eye open while the other adjusts, my current obsession is finding the perfectly scented hand soap for my master bathroom. Why, because I'm a huge scent freak and googling weird things at odd hours is simply what I do. My mind never stops, the wheels in my brain turn faster than a hamster chasing his long-lost love on a never ending wheel of doom.
My days have been running together in no proper fashion for the past six months. A full on collision of mayhem and boxes. The two go together like popcorn and fried eggs. And yet there is someone somewhere eating that very weird combination as I type this. I've had quite the adventure with my new home and decided to summarize things in chronological order for my friends on Facebook. Today I will share my story here, with all of you to raise an eyebrow at me, call me crazy, laugh with me, or at me. At the end of my story, if for any reason you feel sorry for me, yes I will accept your generous donations. 😇
The Good Things
We all know there are certain things best served in moderation, maybe small doses, and perhaps not at all. However, we indulge anyway. Determined to believe if no one sees you that it really doesn't count as a 'bad thing'. Taking it a step further by convincing yourself that it won't hurt if it's just this one time. The problem with that theory is, once is typically never enough, especially if it feels good while you are doing it.
There are daily reminders all around us of the things we shouldn't say, do, or feel, so I dare not bore you with any more of that. I am here to remind you of all the good things and just how wonderfully splendid and magical they are.
