As I write this I think I let Jean Claude out of the back porch/pantry. I make no promises he will get back in the house. I am exhausted but I feel compelled to write this blog. What a day! Now collecting my thoughts and trying to will myself to get into bed after I write this blog. I have to admit I’ve written about this before but it is true – a good desk calendar can make the difference. Today I pitched a dreary one that dealt with life lessons. It prescribed daily doses of helpful “household or lifestyle hints” with peculiar humor – UGH . I now have the 2012 Robin Pickens “Seize the Day” calendar series which includes daily words of inspiration. It’s quite wonderful. We can all use a little inspiration in our lives. A good “page a day” desk calendar. Ah- . Now where’s Jean Claude?
