Day 146

It was definitely a Monday today. I couldn't seem to get caught up all day. There certainly wasn't that much going on, but everything I did seemed to take forever. I wanted to get this month's invoices out this afternoon, but the envelopes kept getting stuck in the printer. I had to print each envelope three or four times before I could get something that the postman could read. No wonder many of my clients have gone back to just using a rubber stamp to print their return address on the envelope. It's amazing how often technology designed to make your life more efficient actually ends up slowing you down.

I had to go to the grocery store today because I was too busy with dog events over the weekend to get any shopping done. I forgot to get half the things on my list because, you guessed it, I forgot to bring the list with me. I totally depend on lists these days. There are so many things to remember that I've just given up trying to keep them all in my head at the same time. I definitely need to add "call a plumber" to this week's to do list. The trap under the sink in Janet's bathroom just fell off somehow, and I don't think that the bucket I put under the sink is going to be acceptable for very long. With a house that was built in 1955, there is something that breaks or disintegrates just about every day.

I wish I could find some work that was fun but still paid well. The websites I design don't pay very well at all and the jobs that still have decent budgets are so complicated they give me migraines. At least this blog is still fun. For a very brief moment last night I noticed that "Some Assembly Required" had risen to number one in the Entrecard Personal Diary category. I never thought I'd see that happen. My rise to the top certainly didn't last long. I did a screen capture just to make sure I wasn't imagining things and about thirty seconds later the Entrecard website refreshed itself and I slid straight back to number five again. I'll probably slide straight to the bottom as soon as I stop dropping on as many sites as I can before my thumbs freeze up. I'm just waiting for the medical report that says Entrecard dropping has been determined to be a leading cause of Carpal tunnel syndrome.

    I find it hilarious my friend. I now experience that no matter how hard you try to make life so simple but it is very hard especially if you live here in the US...Too many choices even if you live in a very small town...That's why, as what you said, grocery list is very important in order not to forget things you want to buy.....Have a wonderful day.
