www.inkthinkerblog.com — It’s kind of been one of those weeks. Here’s what I learned/was reminded of:
- Implement a savings plan when you don’t think you need one, and always try to have extra work in the pipeline, lest you end up with $58 total left in both of your checking accounts after an unexpectedly expensive (to the tune of $800) vet visit.
- Salad goes bad a lot faster than you think it will, especially when your vegetable drawer spontaneously and inexplicably freezes things, so just to be safe, be sure to pull the bag out of the fridge with the opening pointed up rather than toward your adorably slippered feet so the ick will stay in the bag instead of splattering all over your kitchen — and your legs.
- When you live out in the country and are dependent on satellite internet, come up with a back-up plan before a terrifying, tornado-like storm drops a tree on your satellite dish.
- If it seems too good to be true, you will feel like a moron later when you figure out why, so make well-informed, well-researched decisions, even when you’re feeling kind of lazy.
- It’s better to have a lawyer before you need one than to wait until you need one and not be able to get anyone to return your phone calls. See also Items #1 and #4.
What pearls of wisdom have you picked up this week? Leave your advice in the comments. If my experience is any indication, we could all use it! :]
