Virtue 6 - Days 1 and 2

So, last night was date night with my 11-year old, which means we went to Arby's and a movie.  "Green Hornet" is in town, which we've been looking forward to for quite some time.

A movie review, you ask?  Well, in movie land, you win some and you lose some.  I would go with "loser" on this one.  Tav liked it.   I liked the car.  That's about it.  I don't really remember much else.  Unfortunately for the superhero genre, the Iron Man series has set the bar pretty darned high.   Leap over or go home.

Anyhow, since we didn't get home until 9 p.m. (gasp) and I was mentally dulled from the movie, I decided to hold off until this morning, kill 2 birds with one stone, and combine both days of virtue into one post.  In that light, I bring you:

Industry: Lose no time; be always employed in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.


At work, I'm an expert at this.  I don't search the web for hours on end on company time (okay, I occasionally look at stuff, but it's 20 seconds, tops).  I don't go on Facebook at work and I don't play computer solitaire.  In fact, if I owned a company and I caught an employee on Facebook or dealing cards during work hours, that person would no longer be my employee.  That's how much wasting time irritates me.  I'm into focus/time management/work flow control, big time.  I listen to Tony Robbins cd's on my computer all day, for g*d's sake.

At home, I'm a complete slacker.  If I didn't have this blog, I would basically come home, make/eat/clean up dinner, and then sit around doing nothing until bedtime.  My lack of a hobby, hindered by my current living situation, was brought up in an earlier post.  I have an ungodly expensive sewing machine sitting in my mom's closet (2, actually; if anyone wants to buy 1 of them, let me know).  But if I bring it here, then I need to bring books, fabric, a table, cutting mat, blah blah blah.  And the next thing you know, my basement paradise looks like a Kathie Lee sweatshop.

So, to earn my checkmark today, I'm going to do something.  I'm just not sure what, yet.  It's only 11:00, the day is young and so am I.
