Maybe it’s because I’m a Gemini, but I’m way too good at jumping on passing bandwagons! I just leap right on, ride a ways, and then have to slog back to center and start over.
What the heck am I talking about?
Distractions. I get an idea–for example, yesterday, I decided I needed some Emergen-C, vitamin C in 1000 mg packets, because I’m coming down with something and I’m leaving for New York on Thursday morning and being sick is NOT an option. I got the Emergen-C, all right, but having just had houseguests, I decided I needed better sheets, too. The kind that don’t wrinkle in the dryer. To make a long story slightly shorter, I went out for Vitamin C and came back with a truckload from Linens and Things. I’d read somewhere that those Kong toys will keep dogs occupied for hours, so of course I had to stop by PetSmart because, while Sadie and Bernice have everything ELSE under God’s sun, they didn’t have Kongs. (They ignore them.)
Good heavens. Here’s me, slogging back to center…
