Do you ever have one of those days when nothing seems to get done? When you feel like your wheels are hanging up in the air and you can't move? I'm having one of those days. I'm usually a very productive person. True, we finally had a deep tub type sink from Lowe's installed in our old laundry room but I had to pay someone to install it. This is so frustrating. We both know how to plumb, do electricals, work with wood, install phone lines, performed shade tree mechanics, etc. but because of our collective physical limitations, we must rely on others to achieve such results. [sigh] Aw well, no point in looking back. I still feel very blessed and am oh so thankful for everything.
But like I said, I wasn't getting anything done today. I've worn quite a fanny groove in my recliner nursing this &*(^% ailing neck.
Then my usually very unfunny father-in-law sent us a good e-mail.
It went thusly:
I became confused when I heard these terms with reference to the word 'service'.
Internal Revenue 'Service'
U.S. Postal 'Service'
State, City & County Public 'Service'
This is not what I thought 'service' meant. But today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to 'service' a few cows. BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now I understand what all those 'service' agencies are doing to us.
Now I get it!! And I hope you are as enlightened as I am! [lol]
Now that THAT is cleared up ... you'll never think of 'service' in the same manner.
Well, maybe tomorrow will be more productive.
Perhaps the surgeon will call me about my upcoming neck surgery. Then I can go see him and make final arrangements for pain relief.
And I'm scheduled to meet with a fence guy. We're having some of the field fence that encircles our 7 acres redone, at least down by the dirt road. A post about that to follow. The new fence is gonna be so cool!
And now that you're totally bored with my doin's I'll let you go. Hey, a country girl has to have something to look forward too other than watching the caulk dry around my new sink. [grin]
