Thinkin' about It Thursday

This week, I'm thinking...

  Doofus with a little spring fever

Doofus with a little spring fever

  • how absolutely, fantastically, great it feels to be home for a prolonged period of time and in a routine again.
    • (The doggies agree.)
  • how, on the other hand, being hither and yon for so long means a backlog of appointments that all landed on this week so I'm not entirely feeling in routine yet.
  • that, however, all that means is I'm finally getting some stuff taken care of that should've been dealt with weeks ago.
    • so it's all good.
  • how new furniture is both fun and stressful at the same time.
  • that the words "oh, we'll just use this for now" should never be spoken.
    • Is 10 years later still "for now?" 
  • that, in the time it's taken us to choose a new coffee table for our family room, other people would have redecorated that same family room twice over.
  • how that should make me remember that every decorating choice doesn't have to be a forever-choice.
    • less stress?
    • faster decisions?
    • no more naked windows or cheap, folding, very unsteady TV-trays as end tables?
  • that our highest priority in choosing new end tables was, "Which one will the Doofus not be able to knock over as he runs by?"
  • how the store clerk was looking a bit askance at us as we leaned on the top of every table and wiggled it to check for sturdiness.
    • but it's a thing.
    • and I'd rather not have it be a thing anymore.
    • Dang Doofus.
  • how nice it is to see green grass.
    • and growing things.
    • and hear birds.
    • and sneeze.
    • because sneezing means spring.
    • Hurray.
