Some humor on this Wednesday

"I am passing this on to you because it definitely works and we could all use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace. Dr. Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished."

So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, a bottle of Kalhua, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos, and a box of chocolates. You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now. Please pass this on to those whom you think might be in need of inner peace."

Instead of the above, I have some "healthy" things to finish such as the woodwork in the home library to sand and varnish (5 times); a boat trailer to sand, prime and paint; the garage floor to paint; and a few other odds and ends that I haven't gotten back to completing. Neither my SO or I take what Dr. Phil says seriously.....thankfully.

I'm grateful today that:
  • I have choices about what I do to achieve inner peace
  • Nothing has to get done all at once
  • If nothing gets done, the world (and I) won't fall apart
  • I'm rowing tonight with the crew


  1. Cool post. The unfinished bottles bit made me laugh. I needed it today. Thank you.

    Take it east, matey.

  2. Good for you, Syd. Rowing with friends tonight? I really do need to take a trip down south and soon. Right now, it is cold and windy here.

  3. I'm with you on the list..well.cept rowing.

  4. Your to do list involves a lot of FUMES ;)

  5. I'm glad I'm not the only person who doesn't take Dr Phil seriously.
    I love that joke.
    Have a friggin' great day and night, Syd.

  6. I like the second one. Nothing has to get done. My family is walking around scratching their heads, saying What's up?


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
