Persistence Pays and Clearing the Deck
I wanted to get rid of my uncomfortable sofa and had a picture in my mind of what I wanted. Even though I wrote here that I didn't think I'd be getting a new-to-me sofa this year, I kept looking, and finally found exactly what I was looking for. It's even vinyl. And really cheap. We'll be picking it up this weekend. One of my characteristics that I most like - I don't give up easily.
Which leads into item number two. Mr Third Date never stopped texting me, even after he no-showed on a Saturday morning date almost two months ago without apology, email, call, or anything. Somehow I let it go, and we got close to getting together again this week. I had a chance to think on Friday as I was mowing the lawn (good time to think, mowing the lawn!), and I came inside and cleared the decks. No more Mr Third Date, about 6 weeks too late. Sometimes not giving up easily means things last longer than they should.
