Good ideas/Bad ideas of my week:
Good Idea: Getting my 'permanent cosmetic' eyebrows touched-up and bringing my Mom along and talking her into having hers done as well, even paying for hers as a special treat because you are so positive she will just love it.
Bad Idea: Having your eyebrows basically tattooed on the day before your niece's shower so you and your Mom show up looking like the Marx brothers.
Good Idea: As Treasurer of the Homeowners Association, get fancy and color coordinate budget with current standings for Homeowners meeting and make plenty of copies for everyone.
Bad Idea: Get so caught up in being creative and colorful that you forget to even put the actual balance on the copies you so professionally rendered and having to 'pen' it in.
Good Idea: FINALLY getting a manicure! :)
Bad Idea: The day of manicure, going outside and realizing that you want to rearrange your entire garden and then proceed to do so, digging everything up.
Good Idea: Pruning your very overgrown rose bush so that the big thorns don't protrude out very far and won't harm anyone.
Bad Idea: Pruning the rose bush from the bottom so that the very big thorny branch falls on you after its cut.
Good Idea: Tip-toeing around the huge ant mound to transplant a few flowers.
Bad Idea: Transplanting flowers around ant mound while FINALLY deciding to put on gardening gloves to try and save what's left of the manicure only to realize that it prevented you from noticing that ants are crawling all over you and there's nothing left to do but run and jump in the pool like a lunatic and cry because even after they are OFF it still feels like they are stinging you. (Was that all one sentence?)
Sadly enough, this is all true and I even have witnesses for each and every situation. I am so glad I am full of good ideas! :)
