I Placate Myself

This is my backyard yesterday. Yesterday we hunkered down and watched the snow out our windows and the local news stations on TV report on the storm; we enjoyed being house-bound.

Today was the punishment for that crime. My husband and I spent the morning outside shoveling snow. We dug out both cars, our steps and our sidewalk.

So now we are done our chores and getting ready for Super Bowl Sunday. I just did a quick job search and found no new leads. As always, I placate myself (sounds dirty doesn’t it?) today by telling myself tomorrow is a new work week and this will be the week I apply for “the” job.

They say you should live in the present but it seems to me that most of the time I miss yesterday or long for tomorrow. I know that’s not right but it’s true.

I’ll tell you one thing, I’m not longing for Wednesday. More snow is headed this way.

But June . . . now that’s something I can get behind.
