Never borrow trouble...



...imaginary things are harder to bear than real ones.

I don't know who to credit with this quote, but I found it in the sidebar of a book I am reading and it has kept me grounded these past few days. My reality is a wealth beyond measure of amazing friends and family, (and blog readers - thank you!!) a great little home, good health and of course, Max the wunder-schnauzer to name just the highlights. My imaginary worries got the best of me last week - worries about the future, which, if you really think about it, is imaginary. There is no other moment than now. So now is where I am living today.

And speaking of now, I am now the proud owner of a trunk-turned-coffee-table, which I found for a steal while antiquing with a girlfriend this weekend. I am hoping it holds up better than the checkerboard table, though I have yet to test it on my family. It looks pretty durable, but I haven't dropped a 220-pound man on top of it yet. If I do, you'll be the first to know!

Very nice trunk! I'd like to witness the test of dropping a 220 lb man on it. Sounds like fun. :)

I would like to volunteer a few men to drop the trunk on. :o) Oh, you said dropping the man on the trunk. Sorry I misunderstood. :)

Love your new trunk Sisser.....

I love your new trunk / coffee-table! Did it come in these colors or did you paint it? It's great.

Love the trunk! And a personal message from me to your family.....Stay away from the trunk!!!

Excellent idea from Sisser. When you are feeling low make a little list of men you would like to drop a trunk on. It should put a smile on your dial pretty quickly.
