One thing that people may not know about me is that I’m really really good at getting out stains.  (That doesn’t mean that I want everyone coming to me for stain removal tips!) but I am the queen stain master!  I’ve honed my skills too, so that I know what works best for certain kind of stains and fabrics and I pride myself on the fact that I’ve never met a stain I couldn’t obliterate.  So imagine my utter frustration when in the span of two months, I actually had two separate pieces of clothing that I could not remove the stain.  I used every trick I knew. and finally, finally, I had to say, “enough is enough.”  I had to give up. Sometimes we have to recognize that something is bigger than we are and that the time and effort we are spending on that particular task is simply not worth it.  So if you see me walking around with little drips of chocolate on my cotton knit dress, you will know that this is the reminder that sometimes we have to let go and move forward to something else.
