Lunar Adventures: exploring a little bit of everything

Friends of LunarAdventures:
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a pretty stubborn cat sometimes. More often than not, really. Sometimes, it’s because I have a strong conviction and feel that I’m in the right and don’t want to compromise. But sometimes I’ll be sitting around minding my own business and having a stubborn moment all by myself.
For example, a few days ago I decided that it probably wasn’t going to be cold anymore here in Dallas this season, so I folded up my heavy comforter and put it away in the closet. I jumped the gun a little bit, though — because last night it was chilly and I woke up in the middle of the night cold with only my sheets and a light blanket.
Now, had I had my thinking cap on, I would have gotten up, walked five feet to my closet, pulled out my comforter, and resumed my slumber. This would have taken all of 20 seconds, probably. If that.
Instead, I decided the better decision would be to stay in bed, rather cold. And laying awake thinking, “Hrm. I’m rather cold.”
So, I’ve decided I have to come to grips with my stubbornness and better learn when it is an asset and when it is just silly. I started by pulling that comforter out of the closet this morning.
