All systems were go for picking up Daughter from summer college on Tuesday/Wednesday. And then the strangulation of my plans; remember, I plan my next breath (read here). Daughter found out about a work-related luncheon that occurs on Wednesday, which would push the plans back one day.
I broke that planning choke hold with tenacity and said “That’s OK, just let me know by Monday night.” I amazed myself and it truly does not matter whether it will be Tuesday/Wednesday or Wednesday/Thursday. Now that I have had a few minutes to even think about it, later would be better; gives me a bit more time to finish up some things around the house.
And I am now considered Ms. HandyMouse as I replaced a broken light switch without electrocuting myself or burning down the house! I read a couple of fix-it books, checked out info online, and just did it. The only slight snag was that the broken switch was in the basement with no outside light available. Needing to hold a flashlight while doing electrical work is a juggling act to behold. But I did it and “let there be light.” The sad part is that the light switch broke 2 weeks ago and I have been petrified to fix it.
Guess all those raspberries I had for breakfast gave me strength to overcome my unreasonable fears and anxieties. Did you know that raspberries are high in anti-oxidants, vitamin C, K, and E, and rich in B-complex goodies! They are the wonder berry, and very berry tasty too.
Too bad ice cream can’t do that.
