A Day Without Rain

Tobacco is an effective and immediate laxative...but sometimes you just fart.

Yesterday was my hardest day to date. I felt homesick. Something I haven't felt since my first permanent duty station in Germany, and I realized I was further away from home than I ever had been. It was a stressful day at work, Daisy bit the baby at the house in which she was staying (not unprovoked, I might add) and I was deeply touched when Tony offered to keep her (she's his favorite anyway). However, this necessitated a drive from Benbrook to Richardson, just over an hour via I-20 to I-45 to 75. I bought him a bottle of Maker's Mark to thank him, and ended up staying the night drinking half of it! I do feel better today, my worries swept away.

One of my favorite quotes, by Calvin Coolidge:

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

I live my life by this, though I admit I probably wouldn't if I were more talented, smarter, or better educated. Funny how that works.

I will never use Chase again. And I beg them to ask me why. I want to tell them, "Because you charged me $20 to fax my payoff information to the title company when I sold my house."

I'm done.
