Quote of the Day: On Time and Nothing

Since my daughter’s daycare is closed for two weeks, I am finding this to be more true than ever…

“There is not enough time to do all the nothing we want to do.”

 – Bill Watterson (the wise author of Calvin and Hobbes)

Quote of the Day: On Human Nature

“You don’t really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around – and why his parents will always wave back.”

William D. Tammeus

Enough said.

Quote of the Day: On the Joys of Motherhood

“The joys of motherhood are never fully experienced until the children are in bed.”

Unknown

So true.  No matter how exhausting the day or how crabby the daughter, everything always seems better when I can reflect on it in a quiet house with wine in hand.  No matter what the day was like, by the time we go to bed my husband and I spend at least 30 minutes talking about how wonderful/smart/funny/perfect Lyla is.  Unless of course, she is up crying…

Quote of the Day: On Health

“I heard a definition once: Happiness is health and a short memory! I wish I’d invented it, because it is very true.”

-Audrey Hepburn

It is amazing how great it feels to not feel awful.  Stay tuned for the tale of Vomitfest 2012…

Technical Difficulties

Your favorite blog, The Good, The Bad, and The Saggy is experiencing technical difficulties.

Basically I am a freelancer who works from home, so I am my own IT department, and I am fucking fired.  So is AT&T.

Your usual well written, insightful and hysterically funny blog will be replaced with a lazy quote of the day.

“To err is human – And to blame it on a computer is even more so.”

– Robert Orben

Stay tuned for your usual programming.

Quote of the Day: On Getting the Last Laugh

If I never teach you anything else, please remember one thing…

“He who laughs last… thinks slowest.”

That’s enough for today.  Class is adjourned.

Fear Factor

I know you will be sad to hear it, but this week you will not be receiving your highly anticipated dose of wise witticism in blog form… at least not from me.  Today I am having a minor eye surgery – almost like Cataract surgery (because I am 92 years old) where they implant a lens into my eye –  and I need to rest my eyes for a few days.  In fact, I am really not supposed to be on the computer right now, but lucky for you I have one last insight to impart.

Even though it is a minor surgery, I am terrified.  Way more terrified than I probably should be, and way more terrified than I would have been a few years ago.  Why?  Because if something happens to me… it happens to my daughter too.  And that worries me more than anything. If something went wrong with the surgery (however small the chances) she could grow up without a mom, or with a blind mom, or worst of all… with a hideously ugly mom with a terrible wandering eye.  But we can’t live our lives guided by fear.  And we definitely can’t stop living our lives because we are afraid.  Especially when it comes to our children, because I have a feeling that never goes away.

With that… here’s your quote of the day.

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

Dale Carnegie

Quote of the Day: On Prejudice

“I hope that someday we will be able to put away our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.”

– Jack Handy

Because people ARE funny.  Especially the ones who don’t know they are funny…

Quote of the Day: “Dear Lord”

“Dear Lord. The gods have been good to me. For the first time in my life, everything is absolutely perfect just the way it is. So here’s the deal: You freeze everything the way it is, and I won’t ask for anything more. If that is OK, please give me absolutely no sign. OK, deal.”

– Homer Simpson

God and I struck the same deal last night…
