About 40 minutes ago I destroyed our kitchen/dining room table.
Unintentionally, I did something stupid, which resulted in the top of the table being broken in two.
I’m all alone right now, as Matt took the kids downtown while I tend to some “chores”.
After the initial shock of what I did, the few moments of regret, and the even fewer moments of beating myself up for my moment of idiocy, I realized that this would mean we’d have to buy a new table.
Great. Not. I can think of other ways I’d rather use our money.
I texted Matt: “I just severely broke the dining room table beyond repair.”
His response: “It’s about time!”
Well, that sure put things in perspective. We purchased this table brand new—17 years ago.
New perspective: “Wow! How grateful I am that our table lasted 17 years!”
Okay, back to my chores.
