I now wear glasses. All the time. Until such time as I can bring myself to submit to laser surgery or deliberately stick a bit of plastic in my eye, I wear glasses to walk around in the world. I am still figuring this out as I have prescription sunglasses with a bifocal, walking around glasses and reading glasses for the computer, books, smart phone, canned goods labels, instructions… you get the idea. I now wear glasses.

I don’t know how I get sucked into the Pinterest DIY boards. Its pathological. I don’t have a crafty or creative bone in my body, but they draw me in to the land of Pin where I invariably stay for an average of 45 minutes.

I start by thinking “These people are all so clever and creative! Look what they did with that old dresser/door/crib/hunk of trash! Its amazing. Why didn’t I think of that?” This deeply appreciative phase lasts for about 15 minutes. 

As I get older it gets harder to recover from late nights and too little sleep.

Sleep is one of those things that gets to be a habit. Your body gets used to being well rested and protests when its not. It may have been a better strategy for me to fight the impulse to rest when tired in order to reduce the backlash when its not available. But that horse has left the barn.

I’ve never understood the point of that trust exercise where you fall backward and let folks catch you. In my mind its a given that the people in the circle will catch you because its a set up – who is going to risk looking like a schmuck in front of everyone standing around to participate in this exercise? Therefore, the real purpose of the exercise is to show whoever paid for the “team building” that you and your co-workers will play by the rules when someone is looking.
