Why has the day gone by without a thing being accomplished? Why do I feel so tired and unmotivated? I started the day late but with plans to hang my drapery rod in the living room and work on my “new” drapes/valances.
Not sure where my mind was when I purchased the drapery rod?
After fighting with sealed plastic packaging for almost 15 minutes, and trying a razor blade, I had to chop it out with scissors! I scratched my hand in the process. That plastic is SHARP!
I laid it out on the floor and it didn’t look quite long enough? So I measured my window again and I measured the rod. I went to the trash and looked at what was left of the packaging and read the size. It is about 20” too short!
Reminder to self: Measure twice, buy once.
I have so many projects in mind. I thought maybe today I would get ONE thing done!? After the drapery rod disappointment my weak enthusiasm got weaker. A trip to Mickey D’s didn’t help. Now I craving CHOCOLATE!
I usually have my best energy in the mornings. It’s almost 6pm now and getting close to my bedtime. Well almost. Looks like tonight will be one of those veggie nights on the sofa with my “new” thrift store blanket (photo above), a cup of tea and perhaps a big bowl of chunky monkey ice cream?
Do you ever have a day when a small disappointment stops you dead in your tracks? How do you brush it off and go on to something else? I can’t seem to get beyond the drapery rod thing. It just took the wind out of my sail.
I did put away all of my Easter decorations earlier. Guess I did get something accomplished today . . .
The sun will come out tomorrow,
