Tuesday…Tuesday…

Yesterday…was that first day back to work…after having Saturday and Sunday at home…AKA…Monday…and…it was…Monday…all day long…I started out…with…a modest to-do list…and…high hopes of getting it completed…

But…alas…the day just didn’t go that way…and…truly…the only progress I made towards my tasks…was about fifteen minutes before leaving work…

Now…granted…this wasn’t something that had to be completed…yesterday…and…I had made a bit of progress…so…I wasn’t doing the self-flagellating thing that I tend to do…no…it was more like a mild…frustration

Anyway…when…sharing my accomplishments…and…lack thereof…with my friend at the end of the day…he took it all in…then…replied…with a grin…

And…that’s why…God made…Tuesdays…

Hmmm…he’s beginning to sound…an awful lot like…Bertha…I wonder if I can handle both of them…

Picture Imperfect…

I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened. ~ Mark Twain

Yesterday was picture day at school…you probably remember those days…everyone comes to school…scrubbed and polished…wearing their best outfit…

Well…I’m no exception…at least not this time…while I usually don’t enjoy having my picture taken…I’ve lost weight…so…I thought a new picture might be just the thing…

I started getting ready for it the day before…by washing my hair…which usually looks better on the second day…then yesterday morning…I painstakingly selected my outfit…discarding three or four before finding just the right thing…carefully applied my makeup…and I was all set…

Picture perfect…

The only thing is…I never went to get my picture made…I was busy…no one ever called for me…I didn’t feel good…spring pictures aren’t mandatory…the dog ate my homework…and the list goes on…for whatever reason…I never went…

Bertha…laughed and reminded me of Mr. Twain’s quote…one of her favorites…as she pointed out…this is so true about my life…most of the things I fret and worry about…never happen…and…all the fretting…just gets in the way of enjoying my life at the time…

So about my picture…oh well…maybe next year…fall pictures are mandatory…hmmm…wonder what I should wear…
