Anything worth doing is worth doing to excess

I missed a day. I had three days to get ready for the arrival of friends at this apartment in Madrid which is more that enough time. Two old expressions come to mind. The first “If you want something done, give it to a busy man”. The other is “If you have all day to do something, it will take all day to do it”.

Yesterday I slept in and took a walk around noon. When I returned I decided to start reading a book I downloaded before I left on my trip. I sat around the apartment and read until I finished the book at 2:15 this morning. I have never done that before with any book. One of my goals in my new life is to read more but there has to be a reading/life balance somewhere. Moderation has never been my strength. In fact I often joke that my motto should be “Anything worth doing is worth doing to excess “.

Guests arriving today, must clean apartment and get to the store.
