Grapemo Friday, Week 1

For a gentle kick in the butt, here is a thought-provoking quote from H. Jackson Brown:

"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein."

My first snarky thought (because all my "first thoughts" are snarky) was: um, okay, but Keller didn't work in a psych ward. ;P

Then I thought: Are you nuts, Garsee?

Anyone else need this quote as much as me?

Dear Lord, thank you for my family who doesn't  pretends not to care that you can't walk through our house without stubbing your toe or tripping over crap (including Christmas gifts that haven't yet been put away) or--as poor Beth can attest to--getting a splinter in your foot from Elijah's chewed-up toy basket, because housekeeping happens to be at the bottom of my to-do list this month (like that's news any month). Sincerely, me.

The first weekend is nearly upon us. Send in your updates and/or any revised PWGs  for posting on Monday! xoxox And have a GREAT, PRODUCTIVE WEEKEND--for those of you who, unlike me, don't have to drag themselves off to work at 7 a..m... grrr.

Oh, I need this quote, too! You'd think it'd be easier to think "I can!" instead of "I can't!" since the only difference between the two is a letter and apostrophe. ;)

I hate quotes that tell me that I can actually do what I think I want to do even though it seems impossible. But they're also inspiring.... funny how that works.

I hate looking for quotes that don't make me smack the author, lol.

Keller didn't live in today's world. Life was a bit different then. And all she had to do was take care of one spoiled blind/deaf girl. Wait. What was my point?
