Holy cow! Is tomorrow Friday already?
Indeed it is.
Well, this summer provides a spectacular example of “the days are long, the years are short”. This week distills the summer down to its very essence. IT TOOK FOREVER! And yet… it still sort of flew by.
Part of the problems has to do with the various types of mistakes. (This list is *NOT* exhaustive but feel free to point out important oversights that I may have missed.)
1. A mistake that you make and you catch before anybody sees it.
2. A mistake that you make and you catch before anybody important sees it.
3. A mistake that you make and someone else catches it before anybody important sees it.
4. A mistake that you make and someone else catches it after somebody important sees it.
5. A mistake that you make and somebody important catches it.
I try to keep my mistakes to the 1s and 2s (hey, everybody makes them) but, this week, I had a 3. 3’s tend to result in conversations if you have too many of them in too short a timeframe. I’m pleased to not have had any 3s recently… but this means that I can’t have any 3s for a while. My cushion has been flattened.
On top of that, there’s only one week before household schedules change and we move from Summer Schedule to Autumn/Winter/Spring Schedule… so we have to pack as much summer as we can into this next weekend!!!
Which means, basically, The Colorado State Fair. The one time of year I pay five bucks for a lemonade. The one time of year I don’t mind paying five bucks for a lemonade.
And the rest of the weekend, where it doesn’t involve laundry, will involve the usual. It’s time for a Costco run, time to go to the Pet Store for litter and tins of meat paste, time to go to the grocery store for tins of human meat paste and human litter, and maybe find an evening amenable to squeezing in a bottle of something in front of a movie. Or squeezing in a movie in front of a bottle of something.
So… what’s on your docket?
