It is much better to patiently unwind the new outdoor extension cord than to just drop it, plug it in and hope it doesn't get tangled up as you pull on it.

Of course you can't sleep. You knew this would happen when you drank that soda at 6pm. Have you not figured out that future you and present you are the same person?

Enjoy running all over the courthouse on little to no sleep in a few hours, you dope.

The caramel goes in the fridge, not the freezer! Because of that you could not add some to your grape-nuts this morning.

There are some people that aren't happy unless they are unhappy. I should know better than to ask a person like this "so how's the new apartment?" I really should have known the answer wasn't going to be "Oh it's all good". Sigh. At least I learned fast enough and didn't follow up with "so how's the family?"

I used to know someone who would unload all her troubles onto me all the time, to the point where I started avoiding her because she was such a huge downer. She hardly ever talked about the positive things in her life, just the awful things.

I randomly bumped into her a few weeks ago after not speaking to her at all for quite a few years and within 30 seconds she was telling me about her recent hysterectomy.

Dawn, when re-potting a plant, only pour a little bit of soil into the pot. Put the plant in, and then decide how much more soil is needed. Don't dump the whole bag in and then realize that's way too much soil.
Oh yes, always remove your wedding band prior to any gardening. It just makes sense.

Another tip: don't remove the plant from the old pot until you've got the soil level just right in the new pot.

Kavanaugh is going to get appointed. The Republicans do not care what women say. They Do Not Care. Stop reading articles about this and getting yourself madder and madder.

I'm not sure that it wouldn't be very helpful and hopeful to this country if more and more people weren't getting madder and madder for the up coming election. At least US people, others I guess could reasonably stand aside for the time being.

You would not be late for work if you not spend 20 minutes on the Internet in the morning! You're just cheating yourself because you have to dock your time if you're late. STOP IT!!!

When Shadow jumps on the table when you're eating, it is OK to put her back on the floor.

If you've got a habit of saying something dumb /dad-joke-ish when people have a severe coughing fit like "Whoa, sounds like you're dying over there!" then mayyyyybe try to keep your mouth shut when the person coughing happens to be your friend with cystic fibrosis ....

Donít just skip a pill to see if it still hurts. Trust me, it does.

You can't do all the things. Stop trying to do all the things, and stop beating yourself up for not doing all the things.

A flower pot with a hole in the bottom will not hold water (literally) despite the presence of an attached saucer. The water will just take a bit longer to spill out on the floor.

To myself, not to Esprise Me:

but stop letting not being able to do All The Things prevent you from standing up and doing Some Of The Things!

(so why am I sitting down and typing this, which is not One Of The Things, or at least not one of the Things On The List? -- OK, standing up now. Be back later, I'm sure --)

It will if you don't pour in so much water than the saucer can't hold it.
