10 Observations

1. Caramel flavored mini rice cakes are nummylicious and addicting.

2. Never look at a sunbeam streaming in through a window. You'll see an invasion force of pre-dustbunnies.

3. The look of clutter in your house can be deceiving. While it may look bad, it's an optical illusion - it's WORSE than it appears, and you won't know this until you start clearing it.

4. Small dogs will think they are a large and large dogs will think they are small enough to be lap dogs.

5. Your elderly dishwasher will start misbehaving at the most economically inconvenient time of year - around the holidays.

6. The power surge mother of all hot flashes will hit only when it's inappropriate/inconvenient for you to shuck your excess clothing.

7. The only time the phone will ring all day long is during the last 5 minutes of a new NCIS episode.

8. No matter how hard you try, if you've had a long and difficult week, you will fall asleep 15 minutes into the new Blue Bloods episode. (Which is why, and this applies to #7, too, DVR was invented.)

9. There is, apparently, a difference between car batteries made for cars that reside in the north and for cars that reside in the south. Has to do with how cold it gets during the winter. Learn something new everyday.

10. No matter how diligently you train your laundry, it still will never learn how to do itself.


Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

I give thanks everyday that I've been able to take my craziness and make it work for me.
