Even though I was home in time to get this post published, I fell by the wayside due to tiredness.
(Giveaway Alert: See details at end of post.)
So I'm writing this the afternoon of the 16th instead of the day before when I should have done so and scheduled it.
That leads me to the subject of today's post:
Undeniable Truths in an Uncertain World.
1. Truth: Some things change.
Two years ago in March, I was blogging about how to sew surgical masks if you couldn't find any disposable ones to buy.
2. Truth: Some things stay the same.
CoVid is still with us in its ever-mutating vampiric life.
3. Truth: Evil people still walk the earth.
One of our holiday guests who shall remain nameless knocked my laptop to the floor or stepped on it or played keep away with it or something. It has a crack completely across the bottom of the case, another crack at the top left corner of the screen, and the outlet where the power cord plugs in won't hold the cable now.
With Hubby's help, I took the whole thing apart, cleaned all the dust from the inside, painted the cracks of the case that could be seen on the inside with Gorilla glue, let it dry, put it together, then ran beads of glue on the outside cracks, let it dry, then duct taped every broken piece of the case. Guess what? It works again, and the power cable stays in the slot.
5. Truth: When you need to see a Chiroprator, don't delay!
This is the root cause of my extreme tiredness. I postponed an appointment I had for last week, thinking I'd go this week. Well, guess what? He's on spring break!
6. Truth: Best intentions mean nothing unless you take immediate action.
That's the reason I haven't been keeping up with my posting responsibilities for Smart Girls Read Romance. Too many things on my plate.
Late at night, I look at my To Do list and realize I didn't get a post written. Each time, I think, "I'll jump on that tomorrow." When tomorrow comes, the same thing happens. Mea culpa. I actually wrote a goal on my day planner today to fix this problem!
7. Truth: Daylight Savings Time sucks!
We are no longer a nation of farmers so why can't they leave the blankety blank time one way or the other.
8. Truth: Prices will continue to escalate.
Darling Hubby who spent his career in the Financial side of Risk Management and Energy Trading said this is just the beginning. The gasoline situation you see unfolding will have a domino effect on just about everything. Batten down the hatches folks.
9. Truth: Reading is a perfect escape from harsh reality.
Like I always say, "Too much reality is depressing. Read a book and escape." You can read in print, audio, or digital. Ebooks can be read on dedicated devices like a Kindle, a tablet like Kindle Fire or iPad, on a laptop, desktop PC, or on your cell phone.
If you're a reader, teach the others in your family or friends group the joy of reading. Find out what they like in movies, TV, video games, and find books with those plots, themes, characters. That will hook them on reading.
