On a Roll

My goal this morning was to work on two science experiments as possible activities for my science class. It is often a frustrating and futile effort, since so many of them do not work. But, but, but!!! Today with only a little extra effort and minimal aggravation, I got them both to work in a very short time. This was supposed to take all day, cost me buckets of tears, and involve much weeping and gnashing of teeth. I am sorely tempted to try to make another one work for which I had bought many parts, one of them costly, and for which I have only met with failure thus far. I'm batting 1000--do I push my luck? And I know what you all are saying: "No guts, no glory." But hey, I just had two glories already this morning. Moderation in all things is my motto. Why spoil a good day when you're on a roll?

My vote, for what it's worth, is to celebrate the victories of the day by putting your feet up, watching daytime soaps, and eating bon bons... or something else enjoyable :) Save failure for another day.

I'll keep that in mind. However, in the meantime, I allowed myself to pat my own back and just move my nose to another area of the grind stone. Sigh.
