Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do?

We went out to run errands today, and scored several excellent boxes of chocolates on the cheap.  \o/

I also discovered that Big Lots has fantastic garden goods this year.  I found several things I want, and started by buying a plant tower with multiple shelves and a solar light at the top.  They also have three-part folding planters like one I already have, a new style of garden table with mesh sides that I could pop over plants to protect them from critters, and a gorgeous foil mosaic table in which the design is made on the underside of the glass so the top is smooth.  I hope the other stuff will still be there when I go back for more.

The Cherry-Picker in Chief is having a hard time keeping all his fruits in the basket.  His putz of a labor secretary nominee just withdrew.  You know, that severely anti-labor guy?  Gone.  \o/

Keep nagging.  The more humiliations heaped on the party, the easier it is to divide and conquer.  The resistance is working!

... with the successful launch of 104 satellites from a single rocket.  That's almost three times the previous record, 37 from Russia.  Cluster rockets are fantastic tools.  \o/
