Welcome back, guys! Yesterday we were talking about how The Days are long, but the Years are short.
Today is the last day of this years A - Z challenge, so we're literally
meaning, narrowing down our task and aiming at our target.
Whoa, what a ride it has been!
Every year I pledge to start early and write ahead all my posts so I can use my time to visit other blogs. While so far I have never managed to be done with 26/26 in advance, I am quite happy with the amount of prep work I put in this year.
I took the picture above in the parking garage of my favorite Mall.
It was December 23 of a random year before the virus. The Mall offer 4,500 parking spaces, which is usually enough. On Saturdays things can get busy though. (Stores are closed on Sundays in Switzerland, so everybody tries to run their errands on Saturday.)
So on that particular 12/23 Colin was off school, so I had to take off work. It was the morning our cleaning lady came to our house to make everything nice for Christmas, so we had to find something to do in order not to be in her way. For some reason we thought it'd be fun to go to the mall and watch desperate people ;-)
We arrived early, even before it was officially open, and had we had no trouble finding a parking spot. However, just an hour later, all h*** broke loose.
So what's the moral of the story?
Just like us A - Z bloggers know way ahead of time that the month of April is approaching, and we should better get started early with our writing, people know that Christmas is happening in December, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with shopping in November ;-)
Don't procrastinate, or else... there's no parking for you!
In my book life is way less stressful if you get sh** done in time. If you rely on being able to do your tasks at the last moment, something will definitely go wrong. Computers crash, you have to take your kid to the doctor, the pet pukes on the carpet, you name it, it happens...
Happy Friday, my friends! I feel like we should go out and have a drink now. Actually, we can!
I'm participating in a monthly photo blogging challenge, and conveniently April's prompt is Drink Up, so head over, there's enough for everyone!
Are you the organized type or do you like the thrill of winging things last minute?
Let me know and don't forget to leave the link to your post so I can visit.
Thank you so much for being part of this journey!
There's going to be a reflection post next week, so it's a date!
