I just spent an hour doing actual work for my former work-place, only to manage to delete it all at the end of the hour. I'm such a winner. It takes me so long to get motivated to even tackle such work, and now it's gone. A whole hour that I will never be able to claim. Sigh. Instead of wallowing in self pity, and instead of actually re-doing the work, I will make a list some good things that happened this past week:
  • Hubby and I did dinner and a movie last night
  • I found and bought two pairs of awesome jeans with my birthday money (no, I am not too old for birthday money!)
  • I discovered that the yoga pants that I got for my birthday don't attract dog hair
  • I got to sleep in today, AND had a nap in the afternoon
  • I was able to show my daughter her first rainbow
  • A house on our street went up for sale, and I was able to go to the pictures on the on-line listing to steal some decorating ideas (same builder, same challenges)
  • Hubby is feeling motivated to renovate our washrooms now
  • We got free tickets to see We Will Rock You - enjoyed the show
  • My car is now (temporarily) Cheerio-free
  • This picture:

Ok, I feel better now. I don't get to bill for twenty-odd dollars, but I feel better.

Each of those items are totally worth 20 bucks of lost work.

AND holy heck are the yoga pants Lululemons? Because mine don't get pet hair either - HOT DAMN!

Oh and that photo - PRICELESS (and sniffless).

The sleeping in and the nap are in and of themselves almost enough to salvage an entire bad week!

Love the picture.

Pants that don't attract pet hair. You must divulge!

Nomotherearth, they are Lululemon. Who would have thunk it?

You are never too old for birthday money. Ever.

This was a great list - I loved the "cheerio-free car" - Ha. See ya.

I'm 45 and I still get birthday money from my mum.
