The Exquisite Pain of Impatience

You know how when you plan a vacation for a year, it’s all well and good but the last week before you go is torture?

It’s kind of like that.

I have this bottle of Dom in the pantry. I got it for my wedding in 2001.



I haven’t touched it all these years, not even for any of the following occasions:

  • 1st anniversary
  • 10th anniversary
  • birth of first child
  • graduating vet school
  • buying house
  • selling house

But next Tuesday, I might be opening it. I might be celebrating the culmination of something I have been working on for months now (but really much longer than that); or, if it falls through, I’ll be sadly putting it back into the pantry, lonely and abandoned. But I’m hoping that’s not the case. I hope on Tuesday I’ll be posting a picture of me and the champagne flute and I can tell you about something I’m kind of frothing at the mouth over.

This is going to be a long week.

    I hope you get to celebrate success, yet I feel great effort needs to be rewarded as well. celebrating and giving yourself a well deserved pat on the back – and sip of champagne – can help you recognize & accept the value of your hard work, and give you what you need to keep moving toward your goals. cheers!

    • Good point. Either way I’m drinking something on Tuesday. 🙂
