Day Nine

Recently, someone I know referred to sleep as "one of life's simple pleasures".  Pleasurable as sleep can be, it is far from simple. Even now, with a relatively stable sleep cycle, I have to dot every "t" and cross every "i" . . . wait, strike that; reverse it. My sleep will never be simple; its complexity ensures I will never take it for granted. I am okay with that fact.

What I am not okay with is forgetting that a Groupon is expiring. Bloody hell. I had every intention of ordering this wooden photograph puzzle with a picture of me and little buddy. I was going to give it to him for St Patrick's Day. Now if I want the puzzle, I have to pay full price. Sure, I can use the amount I paid for the Groupon towards the puzzle -- but, then I am paying full price PLUS shipping. If I wanted to pay full price and shipping, I would not have purchased the damn Groupon. I don't know how this happens. I look at the dates, I tell myself I have a deadline, and still, I end up doing them at the last minute OR missing them by a day.

From this moment forward, I vow to not allow another Groupon to expire unused. The next one expires on March 18, 2015. That gives me twenty days to . . . attend 10 classes. Looks like someone is starting Yoga on Saturday!

It seemed like a good idea at the time. I thought it would help me relax.
