A Drive by Monday Motivation

The closet of the guest room we are redecorating is where I keep all the travel stuff; suitcases, backpacks, carry-ons, bathroom and cosmetic bags and the like.  We travel a fair bit and it had gotten messier than I can stand.  Can't have a nicely appointed guest room with a pig-bomb of a closet!  I was just mid-flow cleaning, organizing and chucking  in there when I came across an old friend.  The airplane seat belt extender I had "lifted" from a United flight in 1999 so I could have one at all times and never again have to suffer the extreme humiliation of having to ask for one.

I haven't needed it since 2008 and it was buried in the bottom of a bag full of other bags, plastic bags, zipper bags.  (I descend from a long line of bag ladies, it seems.)  My first instinct was to save it (Fat Andra has been around my head a bit lately,) file it away "just in case."  But then I got a hold of myself.  There is no just in case.  There is no going back.  I made my peace and tossed it.  Bye now, b-bye, thanks for flying the friendly skies.

  1. I LOVE this.

    That's my mind set too. Every pound I lose is a pound I never intend to take back. I release it to the ethers...

    Thanks for a wonderful Monday morning post!

  3. What a great discovery. You'll think of it every time you fly and fasten your seat belt.
