3 second summations

I thought that this post was very interesting. Heather Armstrong reports that a friend told her that

No matter what horrible thing you're going through, when it's all over it only takes three seconds to sum it up. Remember that."

She had her list of things and I thought I would look back and do 3 second summations a few bad things from the last year.

Our washing machine broke. It was broken for two months. We have a new one now. Sears sucks.

Salinda broke the law. She violated her probation many times. She hasn't for a week now.

Mike moved in and moved out. He stole a bunch of our stuff. We had to get a restraining order. He's in jail now.

Dominyk had a pop obsession. It consumed hours of every day for a whole year. It still does.

Rand had a job. He lost it. He had another job. He lost it. He tried college. That didn't go so well. He has a job now. He's not going back to school.

But really, looking back, has it been that bad of a year? Maybe it has been, but maybe not. But as pointed out, all the bad stuff can be summed up in 3 seconds.

I just went through my 3 second summations for the past year and I feel so much better. Now it is time to move on. Thanks Claudia.
