Good morning, and it is definitely going to be one of those mornings! I’m glad that I’ll have the opportunity to share, thanks to this meme hosted by There’s A Book.
Because we leave “bits and pieces” of ourselves in the world around us, like a “footprint,” the world is changed, just a bit, by our presence.
Today’s question is this:
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU ARE REALLY NOT GOOD AT?
Oh, my, how I do hate to try to pick just one! There are a few, I’m afraid, but let’s not go into how I’m not good at curbing my “buying impulses,” especially when it comes to books. Or let’s not talk about how I really obsess over certain things, and letting them go…not so good at it.
Hmm, well, I do seem to be talking about them, don’t I?
To sum these things up and put them under a heading, I guess the primary flaw would be my INABILITY TO STOP OBSESSING OVER THINGS WHEN I NEED TO DO SO.
Today’s obsession: Chaos all around me.
The pipes are broken in my walls and the plumbers are coming, but maintenance has to come saw through some walls on Monday.
Meanwhile, I was instructed to move things out of my little office nook and off of some hallway shelves, just so they can saw through those walls. Which means that I had to stack things up AWAY from where they’ll be working, and some of these messy stacks look like this.
Now, I’m told that I’m very fortunate that they didn’t have to completely remove the DVD shelves (and their contents) along the hallway.
Imagine having to empty all of these, and then watch as the maintenance staff took them apart. I’ll bet they wouldn’t put them back together afterwards!
But now they’ve said I only have to clear out a few shelves, which I’ve done; you see some of those in that chaotic mess in these photos.
So…to sum up: I’m absolutely NOT good at letting go, or of dealing well with chaos in my life (other than what I’ve happily created for myself! lol), so I OBSESS.
Now I must figure out a way to do that (Not the obsessing part, but the dealing thing!). I must deal with the fact that there is no hot water until this fiasco is over, so I’ll be going elsewhere for showers, etc.
Hey! It’s a hot summer and a cold shower could be just the thing. I’ll try not to obsess about THAT.
Thanks for giving me this opportunity to FURTHER OBSESS, a thing I can’t seem to stop doing!
I hope to see some of you here, commenting and sharing your own tales of woes and flaws.
Have a great weekend! And aren’t you glad you’re NOT ME???
