Sitting On My Day So It Won't Go Away

I Woke Up Early So I Can Do More

The sun is not even up yet and I have so many things planned

I know I will have to race around all day just to get most of what I want done

Errands and food shopping is just the beginning

Then there are bills to be paid and the car dropped off for an inspection

Yes I waited to the last day when I thought I would have more time

The phone will start ringing and my children will need a ride

A neighbor might come over and give me some company but P L E A S E

Can it wait till tomorrow when I have more time and less things on my mind

I set the alarm early so I wouldn't over sleep

But I was too jumpy so I got up earlier than that

Too scared to go back to sleep

Since I am up I might as well get a good start

As I rush to the laundry basket and get it ready to bring it downstairs to wash

I think I will eat breakfast now I might not have time later

I almost forgot a friend is moving and they say they would call for some help

I made sure I charged my cell phone so my battery won't die

There was a slow leak in my left back tire I have to get that checked

I was hoping to go to the gym and get a good work out

I will have to go into work early so I can leave early or see if someone will switch and I can work for them another day

There are only two people who said they can do it for me but I have to let them know

I haven't decided who to call one will work for me and I will work for them tomorrow

The other will work for me and I will work for them next Sunday

I am so excited and filled with so much energy

I took out the bathroom cleaner and thought I would clean it now and vacuume later

So I wouldn't make any noise and wake up the family

The cat appointment is at two

My dentist asked if I could come in early because she is going on vacation

I think I will make a meatloaf so I can have it ready to throw in the oven for later when I get home

I will gather the trash after I cut up the watermelon in the refridgerator so it all can go out for the garbage men who come to my neighborhood early

I think I will put out the clothes on the line before I go out so they will dry nice

It is suppose to be a gorgeous day and maybe a chance of showers later tonight

There is nothing like the smell of fresh clothes that have been drying in the air outside

I will arrive at the bank when it first opens to avoid any line so I can get extra money for the week

There is a gas station that takes cash only that is ten cents cheaper than everyone else

I have the gas tank almost empty so I will just stop there first

As my mind is racing I clearly have a plan

My mother wants to go food shopping too so I will pick her up when I drop the youngest one off at school

After we do the food shopping and put the groceries away we both head for a haircut and my mother wants her hair colored so while she is getting that done

I can shoot to the school and pick up my son and then I can drop him and nana off later so I save time

After I go to the parent teachers night at five thirty on the way home I can pick up the clothes at the cleaners for my cousins wedding tomorrow they don't close till late

I pulled out my shopping list and will leave it on the counter so I don't forget it

I have my cell phone and keys next to it

A perfectly planned day that should work out just nice

My eyes are a little tired and that is just because I got up at 5:05 A.M.

I could just go on Facebook for a little bit or turn on the t.v. and see the early morning news

I think I will just close my eyes for fifteen minutes and I will be ready to go

Off to la la land and when I wake I will be so surpised

Since it started to rain early and the pitter patter was so soothing

I didn't hear the phone ring

The day seemed to slip away

This one day I thought of everything I wanted to do but I sat here asleep till noon

Hi Dream on, Isn't that annoying when you wake up really early because you know you have so much to do, then you are too tired through the day to do it all!!

But going back to sleep - well that spoils all the well made plans!

@DREAM ON...Boy, have I experienced this little trick! After working second shift, then a third shift the last several years before retirement, I can't get into a daytime swing. Any time I manage to get up early with great intentions, I'm napping somewhere along the way and the well laid plans disappear!

oh this was brilliant, l was thinking of commenting that you can cross off going to the gym because your normal day would give you a complete workout, Then l got to the end and couldnĀ“t stop laughing.

You never fail to put a smile on my face.
