The Post About Something

I decided to move my posts to Wednesdays. This decision was made while I was frantically throwing clothes in a suitcase last Friday before leaving for South Carolina and didn't have a post ready. Wednesdays make more sense anyhow. That way, IWSG posts aren't off-schedule and posting on Fridays is silly. People are busy on Fridays.

That, boys and girls, is what we call rationalization.
Meet Ellie. She's a darn good reason to 
drive 18 hours in a weekend. 

In this case, it worked so I'll not fight it.

Speaking of not fighting irrational thinking, have you watched Hoarders on A&E? It's about people who are drowning in stuff and the attempts of experts and family members to get through to them. I watch it as a cautionary tale. Keep the rationalizations to the small things, like blog days.

My son thinks I'm goofy, like I'm thinkin g I'm one more box in the basement away from being on the show.

He's right. I can imagine it. No one plans to go off the deep end. But sometimes, when the right set of events hit the right personality at a time when there is emotional fragility or lack of support, it's the perfect storm. And anyone can get caught in a storm. Especially when they are pretty good at rationalizing things to themselves. A-hem.

Now, I'm not saying I need an intervention or anything. I'm just saying, I can see how it happens, so nothing inspires me to get off my duff and start spring cleaning faster than a few episodes of Hoarders. 

Beware the rationalizations!
