Day 169: The Small Stuff
Saturday, June 18, 2011
I once had a supervisor who said 'There are basically only two rules to life: 1) don't sweat the small stuff, and 2) it's all small stuff.'
I can't say I subscribe to the philosophy, but today was a day of small stuff. I had a long, chatty conversation with one of my cousins... put another bag of 'outgrown' clothes in the car for donation... did a little online shopping... heard some sad news about an old school friend... and added in the usual kitchen - cleaning chores.
I walked a half-hour at 5K / hour. If my math is right, that's a little over three miles - not bad, especially since I had the treadmill inclined. Watched an old Laurel & Hardy movie (have I ever mentioned what a fan I am?), watched my weekly medical drama, wrote a nice long letter to a penpal, and... oh, there was probably some other things, but nothing that stands out.
I suppose Life is mostly made up of small stuff. I'm not sweating it, you understand - just trying to observe it as it goes by.
Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!
