Wouldn't It Work Better If...

we could all be super heroes. Maybe just for a day. Selfishly, I must admit that if I were a super hero (I would call myself "Scarlett Flame" btw. Is that already taken? =) ) I would not use my powers to right the corrupt systems of the world nor to save the innocent in dark alleys. I would not even rescue a kitten from a tree. I told you I was being selfish. On any other day, I would gladly do those things. But today...I need super hero powers to tackle my own house.

There's a moment when you realize that there is more to do in 1400 square feet of space than is humanly possible in only 12 hours. Of course, it doesn't help that you use up one of those hours to blog about how you can't get anything done. shrug. Without super hero status it is a "one bite at a time" elephant sized project. The problem with eating an elephant one bite at a time is that from certain angles, the little bites can't be seen and it still looks like one honkin' elephant sitting there.

Nonetheless I, the Scarlett Flame, am going to attempt to eat an entire elephant today. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Oh, and ---does anyone have a red body suit I can borrow? ;-)

I actually have an orange one. Is that close enough? I mean can't flames be orange too?

Just letting you know I am still reading your blogs. Maybe not every single day, like when I didn't have anything better to do, but I do get to them. (Just kidding)
