Saturday Rambling

Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.
Voltaire (1694 - 1778)
Our doubts are traitors, And make us lose the good we oft might win By fearing to attempt.
William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616), "Measure for Measure", Act 1 scene

Don't know why I chose doubt today, but sometimes I doubt myself too much. I know I have the smarts and "gut feelings" to aid me. but still doubt a decision made. usually find out it has been the right decision, but alas still doubt myself. guess somehow it's how I find my truths??

update on accident: haven't been able to get in touch with the other guys insurance company yet! doubt again- should I pursue or not? Yes, nothing ventured nothing gained. why should I pay my deductible to get it fixed? esp when hubby can prob fix.

both grandsons are playing football this fall. should the 5 yr old be playing? he likes it thus far and it's flag, hope it will teach him some things. the 9 yr old is into it, but his asthma like symptoms are on the rise. he complains about every bruise he gets-don't know why he is like that? he has practise every day except Sunday right now, but will slack down to 3 days per week when school starts. it can't interfere with his education. they start Aug 25th, I never started til after Labor day, so weird to me to start before then.

The twins are in Colorado with their dad. couldn't figure out what clothes to pack. colder in the mountains for sure. I saw snow in Colorado in Aug when I lived there, but only lasted a day. quite different snow there. why doesn't their dad call to say they got there safely? guess I can't make others do what I feel is right. I know they are ok but would be nice to hear from someones mouth!

Dau # 2 did plumbing this week! she had leak in the bathroom and decided she could do it all, and of course she did! She changed the pipes, sink, drains- when she sets out to do something she gets it accomplished. think she likes those kind of challenges.

Now I am off to making cookies with #2 grandson, doing some housework and maybe pack some stuff for my trip to FLA at the end of the month. O yeah he just asked me to fly a plane with him! guess I will do that too, all before I get dressed, owell whats a granny to do!

Yay for daughter being able to fix the leak! Not sure I would have attempted it. I would just assume I would make it work and then suddenly find my house flooded. LOL

I can relate to you about the self doubt. Like you, I find if I go with my gut feeling, it is usually right.

sorry about the accident. I find because I have no patience and need my car all the time, to just go with the solution that is fastest and easiest (in car accidents).

Thanks for the visit.

I like the Garage Sale post. Just have to do it occasionally.

Come visit anytime,
Troy and Martha

Goodness, sounds like lots going on there. So sorry to hear about the accident. Hope it all gets sorted soon.

Thinking about you. And good to catch up a bit on your goings on since I've been away.
