While scouring todays paper for coupons, chatting with Fisgus and planning my shopping "attack" (all provide a great reason to continue my lazy day -I slept till 9:30am!- and not clean my house) I found a great quote.
"Experience is what you get when you don't get what you wanted. And it can be the most valuable thing you have to offer." (quoted from Randy Paush's last lecture)
Now I am off to clean the multiple puzzles strewn thru the downstairs and the pile of Splenda spilled all over the kitchen (apparently my monkey children are not only savages they are NOT frugal.... Splenda of all things! sigh)
