Wow, life is feeling busy. Last night I stayed up late thinking up sixty reasons why the Mister should finish his dissertation by April 6th. I put them in a little book and illustrated them. It makes me sound like a sweet little wife, I know, but I didn’t think of the idea– it was commissioned by the Mister.
So far I’ve only come up with 42. It really got difficult after the first 30. I cut a picture of a red Dust Devil out of a department store ad. A similar item has been waiting for us in “storage” (if by “storage” you mean indefinitely borrowed by a sister) in Oregon for five years. I wrote,
You will be reunited with the vacuum cleaner
I wonder if the Mister will read the motivator and decide to spend that day eating ice cream and throwing things off of overpasses. Wouldn’t surprise me. You win some, you lose some.
READER INPUT DAY:
If you have any ideas for the motivation book lemme know. Keep in mind, all the obvious ones have been used. Including free time, a real job, vacation, outdoor stuff, food, money, and the satisfaction of a job well done.
