#atozchallenge – Quick Trip-Quiet Time


Q         Quick Trip-Quiet Time


There is a gas station that is called Quick Trip. It’s a place you go to when you need to make a quick trip to gas up your car or your lawn mower needs gas to cut the grass.


At Quick Trip you can get snacks, drinks and for those who smoke cigarettes. If you’re feeling lucky you can spend your last two dollars on a lotto ticket. Your last two dollars can make you a millionaire or a thousandaire. (My spell check said that isn’t a word-I just made it up)


Sometimes we don’t need a quick trip, but a little quiet time. A time to step aside from the hustle and bustle of the moment, day or week and reflect on the good and bad of the day. It’s good to be able to take a deep breath and exhale slowly while we count the things to be grateful for.


Whether on a quick trip or having quiet time enjoy the journey.

A to Z Blog Challenge Uncluttered

Yesterday I answered questions about organization. When I added my score I found out I was in better shape than I thought I was. Though my score said one thing what I see in my home is another. I see mail, magazines and a few other things lying around. One issue is that I’m gone more than I’m home. Because I’m gone a lot these items keep piling up. I don’t get to read my magazines. Some mail I need to pitch in the trash as soon as I get it.
Maybe I also need to get an uncluttered life. I probably don’t need to be gone as much as I am. My home could get uncluttered if I’d spend more time here. Here’s another area to work on.
I can help others get uncluttered but I have a hard time helping myself. I need to hire someone to help me. But then I need to stay home long enough to get the assistance.
When all is said and done I want an uncluttered mind, life, house and car.
What needs to be uncluttered in your life?
