I am on fire today!
Well, not literally. I probably wouldn’t be feeling so accomplished if I was really on fire.
…that’s actually probably one of the more useful yardsticks for gauging your success at Life, now that I think about it.
Checklist For Winning Life
-Still alive? y/n
-Not on fire? y/n
WIN! You deserve cake!
(Sometimes low bars are the only bars you can meet. Victory needs to be graded on a sliding scale)
(Now I want cake.)
(TBH, I kind of always want cake.)
Right. Where were we? Successes! Today!
-I actually remembered to call the eaves trough guy and as of 6:30 this evening, my neighbours can stop side eying me every time it rains because my eaves troughs are more like planters and they overflow. A lot.
-I set up my summer lawn maintenance (I really don’t like yardwork for many reasons: I have allergies, I burn easily, I get heat stroke, it’s just very very unpleasant all around, and it’s fucking BORING. I used to put it off until I got threatening letters from the County, now I pay someone to do it for me while I crouch in the shadows and hiss at the sun. Everybody is much happier.)
-I set up my appointment to use my Junk Removal Groupon and FINALLY get all of the crap out of my backyard/basement/front foyer/garden shed. Most of which isn’t even mine, but was instead left by my ex… 6 years ago. (I am the worst home owner ever. I have never denied this. My goal is to be in a condo by Fall)
I am one productive mofo today.
Except for, you know, my actual job XD
