MyLot: Dozens of things and coming up short

If you bought a dozen eggs, but one smashed in the carton as you were taking it out of the car, would you feel slighted when your last is two-egg rather than a three-egg omelette from the carton? If you bought a 12-pack of soda pop or beer, and you dropped one and it exploded at your feet, would you stomp your feet in anger at being cheated out of one of your beverages? If you want to sleep until noon, but your alarm goes off at 11:59 a.m., has your day been ruined so badly that it affects your ability to function? If you are eight hours away from the end of the month at myLot, and you are sitting at $11.26, would you drive yourself crazy to try to get that final 74 cents to make it an even dozen dollars? Inquiring minds want to know.

Well, I don't eat eggs often. When I do it's only two, and never an omelette. I would be upset about the soda, but only if it exploded all over me. As it is, I don't drink soda. Oh yes, my whole day would be ruined! Or atleast the first few hours. I haven't made it past $5.00 in a couple of months and in fact, won't make it TO $5.00 this month. You can try to get the 74 cents, but there's no telling whether you'll make it.

We are always conscious about the ticking of the clock or just like the sands in the hour glass. We are fighting against time.

I wish we could carry over, if we have more than five. I'm not sure if we can or cannot.

I am not easily upset from small accidents like a broken egg or a minor household accident. IF I would have been more active and wrote a post yesterday, I would have surely reached $24, I will receive a little less, I do not mind. I like to take like in a relaxed mood.

@LadyDuck $23 w/3 discussions. This shows how people can be successful, if only they pay attention.

No I wouldn't get to excited. Things happen that aren't in our control.

I wouldn't drive myself nuts trying to meet some myLot goal. As to something like the eggs, I would be annoyed at myself for not being careful enough.
