Quip of the Year

My dear friend was talking to me in passing. I offered to pick her son up from school because she wasn't feeling well. Then I remembered I had a time conflict. She was very forgiving, and kindly but frankly quipped,

"You think with your heart. Your brain eventually catches up."

I laughed so hard, I nearly fell over, partly because of who said it, my sweet Hindu friend. Plus, this is SO me. In fact, I don't necessarily think. Whatever I do, my brain does eventually catch up, though....

I'm starting to "stop to think" when I go places so I don't forget items I need to take or do.

Now if I can only get my kids to be quiet when I stop to think...

I think with my heart too, you want to help, it's hard not to be able to (almost as hard as asking for help).

Thanks for the advice on my blog -- I responded to you there. :)

:D

My problem is that I can remember two things that happen at the same time, at different times and not realize the conflict until I try to go do them.

My problem is I try to people please so much that I end up agreeing to whatever to the person I'm with, thereby offending the person I'm not with. Like when we're at home where both our parents are a few minutes apart, I agree to do things with whoever asks while I'm there, even if it conflicts with what I know I told the other family I'd do. It actually causes a lot of problems in our marriage communication.

Very true, Kimberly. I wish I was more like you in that regard. I have a tendency to think through something too much. And if it's not in my daily planner, I freak. I'm so anal that way.

I just tagged you on my blog, but if you don't want to do it, I won't care cuz I don't really like getting tagged myself.
