Twisted Brownie Syndrome

My Mom gave me some old photos during her latest visit. Among the pictures, was this one of me as a Brownie/Girl Scout along with my groovy Nanny (check that outfit and those glasses!).

As I looked at the picture, I remember the Brownie Story I learned as a child. For those of you who want to read the whole story, click here. The shortened definition is that a Brownie is a magical creature that cleans your house in secret.

Well I loved this story! I took it to heart!

However, being a brownie has not always served me well. When I was in the workplace, I enjoyed getting to work really early to get a lot of things done before anyone arrived. Secret Brownie! Yea!! I was also prone to taking work home. Now this, you might think would be an admirable quality (and I still think it is!). The problem was that my work was "magically" getting done. And my colleagues and bosses didn't see me laboring away. So often, I got even more work (that again I would do "in secret"). Can you see where the story goes? I would get so overloaded or so downcast from resentful co-workers, that the delightful brownie would have to go away for a while. So sad!

I'm glad to say that now I can completely delight in my Brownie side. When Karen arrives home from a trip, presto! the house has been magically cleaned, the clothes are washed, and my kitchen is gleaming. Brownie Delight!

I know.... I'm a little strange. Just a strange twisted Brownie.

Nanny asked me what you did with all the digital pictures that you took of her photo album when you were home. Did you do some project with them? Can you share?

There were around 25 pictures that came out from the photo album. I can burn the pictures to a CD or even make a DVD movie with music and rotating pictures. Just let me know.
