Challenge Day #23

I do not know what the prompt is for today.  I have not looked and I do not have time to look.  As you can see, we skipped a few days.  I am not going to apologize.  I realize that I was committed to making this challenge thing work, but then life happens.  For instance, my Part-Timer came home for the weekend.  So, I gave myself a hall pass on the challenge and spent time with her instead.  I drug her and her friend across three counties on Saturday because she had some things to tend to, then we spent Sunday going through some stuff and getting her packed and on her way.  Several things you should know here...

  • If you are single and dating - I am so sorry.  Upstanding girls have it really rough these days.  There are not plenty of fish in the sea.  The sea is shrinking.  It is more like a really shallow pond.  Plus, your peers, you know the hoochy ones, are not helping you out at all.

  • Driving back and forth across three counties can wipe you and your whole day out.

  • Purging your junk and having someone get excited about the things that you no longer want or need can be a great incentive to get your butt up and get some things done.

  • When you write a post about how your Part-Timer never brings her work gloves when she comes home, and she calls you all offended.  Don't sweat it.  She doesn't mean it.  Once again, no gloves and no time for work. 

I am sure there are more things that I learned over the course of events, but that is not the point.  The point is, I am okay.  I did not hurt myself.  My horse did not die.  I am here.  I will get caught up, and the cold front made it.

Can you believe, in the 50's last night?


I feel human again.

So, with the incentive of purging crap, clearing things out and the cooler weather.  I have to go.  I am ready to tackle something today, and for once, it isn't someone. 

I am trying to work on my anger management issues. 


  1. For the 1st bullet point... Thanks so much for the lovely encouragement. I wanted so so much to hear something like that. It totally brightens my outlook on life. NOT.

  2. Sorry Anonymous. I wish I could candy coat things for you a little, but I feel like that would be a total disservice, and my blog challenge for September is to write about Serving. The facts are you need to know this. You need to know so you can go into battle prepared. Those waters are muddy and murky. You need waders. You need a wide net. You need to learn the art of catch and release.
