Time Vacuum

Why is it that we are willing to devote so much attention to utterly useless tasks? Last night I spent the better part of an hour trying to untangle a string of beads for the Christmas tree, when I really have no plan to put them on the tree. I could probably have found a dozen more productive things to do with my time.

What pointless task have you completed lately?

Besides reading your blog?

Especially reading my blog.

I've spent the last few weeks trying to get all my VHS tapes onto DVD. (Which reminds me, I found the tape of all our awesome videos that we made up at Kearns and my kids loved our orange video) Anyway, I feel it's not a time waster but my husband thinks I'm crazy.

The orange video! It's been too long since I've seen that. John still occasionally talks about refilming it, which would be kind of fun.
