Ponder this:

Winter this year has been a challenge.


My all-season tires have proven inadequate, time and again, at getting me up any of the various hill routes to my home. The last storm, on Wednesday, had me circling the bottom of The Hill, attempting incline after incline until I abandoned my car at a neighbor's barn and called for Husband to come and retrieve me.


On Thursday, ta da! Heavy duty studded snowtires installed. Now I want to drive on nothing but snow and ice! This morning in the supermarket I heard someone say, "The roads are really lousy!" and I hadn't even noticed!
I smile now as I effortlessly roll up hill and down dale. Such a nice improvement from semi-controlled sliding as a means of transportation.


This weekend I am diligently napping and swilling water in an effort to get past a head cold. I should have gone to bed at 6pm the first night that I felt it coming on and slept it out then, but that night it was my turn to wait by the phone in case Husband required retrieval from his turn at Flying Dutchman of the Hills. Studded tires have since been added to his vehicle as well.


At work, I am growing more comfortable with the change in my responsibilities, and with the necessary shift in my relationships with my coworkers. On Friday I made the kind of mistake I had been dreading....just a dumb error involving placement of a decimal point....and (again, ta da!) nobody died as a result.


I find that there is a personality disorder called Mistake Phobia (of course there is, there are syndromes and disorders for every human quirk under the sun) and I have it. Having personally survived The Error and having caused no more than a half hour's disruption in the order of the office, I am greatly reassured that Life As I Know It may continue.


During my reading/napping cycles today I read my latest More magazine from cover to cover. I always find pithy quotes from wise women in More, and this is one of my latest favorites:

“I spent so many years thinking the most important thing was to be productive and now I think it’s to be joyful.” --Arianna Huffington

Amen.
