Virtue 10 - Day 1

Sincerity: Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly.

Honestly, dear reader, I think I should get a pass on this one.  I am, after all, in the middle of a divorce.  While controlling my tongue isn't much of a challenge (see "repression" in an earlier post), you can't expect me to control my thoughts.  That's just not fair.  And Ben was a very fair man.  He wrote the Poor Richard's Almanac, after all.  If he wasn't a fair-minded guy, he wouldn't have shown such consideration for the poor, now would he.

I await your decision.

On another note - today sucked.  I had several unexpected "drop-ins" on Friday who sucked my time away, so I started the day behind.  I then responded to what can only be described as an obscene amount of e-mail requests - I actually sent 15 e-mails in my first 2 hours at work - and guess what - 2 more drop-ins.  So, I basically gave up on trying to get anything major accomplished, and just worked until 3, when I stopped and left.  Some days you just have to do that, I guess.  But I face a desk of half-finished crapola tomorrow, and that makes me cranky.

Oh, and when I got home, I started to do the dishes, cut my finger on a freshly-sharpened knife, and dripped blood all over the floor.

AND I have a Planning Commission meeting tonight, which will be 3 hours with the entertainment value of, oh, watching paint dry.

But - in the interest of our virtue - I present:


1.   My Zumba DVD's arrived in the mail.  If you don't know what Zumba is, well, welcome to Planet Earth, Google it and be envious.

2.  I registered for the "Write on the River" conference in Wenatchee, joined the Write on the River club (yes, there's a club, what of it?) and requested my appointment with a literary agent.  It cost all my "fun money" for the next 2 months or so, but it will be worth it.

3.  I got out of finishing the dishes because I was bleeding everywhere.

4.  Synthia is making dinner so I don't have to cook.

Well, there you have it.  Day 1 is in the bag.
