While Trying to Live in the Moment

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

While I live by sage prompting to live in the moment, I admit there are some times when I live that I’d rather someone just shoot me!  

When those times make company, it’s best to simply look to the future.  There will be golden moments on the horizon.  And, when they arrive, treasure them to memory for a lifetime of savoring!


I take pictures for the purpose of remembering fond times.  I do not impose copyright restrictions on this photo, so you may feel free to use, or distribute as you wish.  However, should you need a Real Estate Professional in the Greater Sacramento area, I hope that you will contact me by email or by visiting my website www.myrljeffcoat.com - Thank You!

Myrl living in the moment is good advice as long we don't do something stupid that ruins the moment of tomorrow

All - I am absolutely fine!  A couple weeks ago, I bought a new washer and dryer. However, the control panel had a touch pad that had me confused for a few days.  It was a crap shoot for me to get them to start.  In the past I have been known for being tech saavy, and I was a little too proud to read the manual.  However, I finally bit the dust and read the dang thing.  There was one more selection this new washer and dryer required that I push, in addition to the start/stop button.  Afterward, I was mortally wounded by my stupidity.  However, I can at least get them to operate!

Your words are so true my friend!  We all have bad days and feel low at times, but I have also found that having hope for the future is the best way to get through them.

Must have been the same company that our dishwasher came from.  It has all kind of settings from ECO to heavy duty, no drying, etc...and it has to have the start button before and after...luckily Ron figured it out without reading the manual...we both try before reading the directions, LOL 

Love the photos. A

Hello Myrl - there are times when "living in the moment" may involve some kicking and screaming. The premise remains but not things are not always in sync.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat - I love that image of the boats!  I was reading some of the comments asn saw that you had some frustration with a new high tech washing machine and dryer.  I just recently went through that as well. Fortunately, my husband did read the manual and gave me the "reader's digest" version so I could wash and dry without the frustration.  He decided to leave the manual right on the shelf next to the soap. I have had a code or two show up on the screen and didn't know what that was all about!

All - My frustration with newer appliances is that they have made complicated, what was once simple.  Why, why, why?

Myrl, your photo is gorgeous, the water is so smooth that it looks like glass. I'm glad you were able to figure out the washer and dryer. I love the efficiency of new appliances but, they are not what I'd deem user-friendly!

Myrl not only so they make them complicated but they also do not last as long as the "old appliances" it is intentional, Endre
