I got my case study finished, and after reading it a half dozen times, I sent it off. Really, I'm one of those people who could agonize over a paper and spend hours trying to make it better. I would let it chew up and spit out a whole weekend, one that I have set aside for my husband. I acknowledged my own shortcoming, took a deep breath, and I attached the assignment to an e-mail and sent it off. It is done, submitted 3 days early.
I then went out and mopped the kitchen floor. I stood at the door enjoying how it gleamed. I polished furniture, and put text books away once again. Room by room, I put my house back to rights.
Isn't it strange that I should get as much satisfaction from polishing wood as I do from sending off a seven page paper?
