Monday “ugh” jobs

October 27, 2008 at 2:23 pm 4 comments

Monday:  man, Monday’s are lonely some weeks with the family all gone!  It’s almost eerie.

Trying to get the bedroom cleaned out for carpet and move a zillion books I have laying around to get read that I’ve not read.  Not been in a non-fiction reading mood in the last year or so.  I could just leave them there until I get in the mood, or I could declutter.  I’m shooting for declutter, but that leaves the question as to where to put the books in the meantime.  Questions, questions.

Also, trying to get myself revved up to re-paint the bedroom before carpet is laid.  I’m sure the thanks will flow once it’s done, though I’m not really feelin’ it at present! The Hub is trying to gently prod me.

I want to do it, but hate to break into another pair of pants with pain on them.  Ugh.

What are you “ugh” jobs today?

    Cleaning 3 humidifiers that I left sitting out in the bedrooms since last winter (shame on me). My kitchen is full of vinegar and bleach smells. Ugh.

    Oh, and wiping the baby’s really snotty nose several times a day, and cleaning my own out too. Ugh.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
