My Wife Knows Me Only To Well

Updated on July 1, 2011

You Tell Me To Eat Before It Gets To Late

I am busy trying to get things done

The phone rings and it is you again

You called once and left a message

I was carring laundry downstairs and you have to wait

I am going outside to cut the grass

I want to read and write but that will be pushed off to later

You had to go to the grocery store without me

You called the second time just to make sure I ate

I appreciate your thoughtfulness and the constant love that you share

I cannot be with you now for I have a list as long as my arm to finish

I am trying to squeeze everything in is like putting something back in a box it came from

Not a chance

No matter what I seem to do it doesn't fit

I squeeze I tug and pull and have done everything I know

There is no way this is going back in the box in came in

So now you feel my pain and suffering

I am tempted to just go for a walk and leave everything behind

Instead I am going to fill my stomach with the old stand by

Peanut butter and jelly

It soothes my patience and relieves tension

There is nothing like a P&J to take all my troubles away

Or at least hide them for the moment and make them sweet

For I am building up my energy and soon I will rise to my feet

I will tackle one project at a time and what I can do I will do

For now I am feeling better and thinking clearer

As my cat gives me moral support and a lick of love after a head butt or two

Don't wish for too much because he leaves me as fast as he came

I am on my own once again to face my life

I look out my window and see the curtain blowing

I have to look at this nice day where I could be doing anything but instead

I have responsibilities now that use to be just chores as a kid

How life has changed me in so many ways

I still can't escape the endless rat race of things to do

I guess I can join in with the other rats and take my place

For today I will not be able to go out and relax or be lazy as my cat and sleep all day

I have things to do and they have to get done

At least that is what I keep repeating to myself over and over again

Please pass the milk as I finish my late lunch to give me a kick start

I will be out mowing if you need me because the grass needs me

The weeds decieve me and my wife believes in me

Some how some way my day will continue on its cycle

From beginning to end where I end up we shall see

It is to early to tell and I will need all the help I can get

To finish before night fall so on God's love I call

Not to help me because I know what to do

But to laugh with me as I get my good shorts stained because I was too much in a hurry to change

We can both see my wifes face as I try to explain

I didn't have the time to change

Don't you see God and I were talking how much you are going to be mad at me

So just give me a smile and a hug and please pass me the water I left inside

You called again to remind me to drink but what did you think

I would remember everything

Oh the clothes

The same clothes that I forgot to take out of the washer that are all wrinkled and wet

Your work clothes that you told me don't forget to put out on the clothes line to dry

I have some more mowing to do

Talk soon and I love you too

      Well - this one is like an ode to everyone's most "Tiresome Details of Livng" days! Yes we all have 'em. What is interesting is that, even when it's just oneself to call the shots, one still has to not only DO them, but call for them to be done, as well! Double trouble! ;-> haha.

      The rule is: there is ALWAYS going to be something to be DONE. In order to smell the roses, we just have to call T - Timeout - and pause and smell them. The chores are good about waiting! The roses may fade and go to seed without our enjoying their lovely aromas. Oh, sure, the chores still need to be done but one little secret I've noticed is that if a chore is delayed a little while, it doesn't double up when we get back to it, it just waits until we show up. Sometimes that can result in a wider-spaced chore schedule. Instead of cutting the grass once a week, it may be ok once every 10 days or even every other week! We can also 'talk to the grass' about when or if it really needs cutting!

      Some things do require immediate attention every time, but some of those can be pared down. I mean, do we always have to set the table as though the Royals were visiting, only to have all those extra plates and silverware to wash? haha. If we only need to use a few dishes for our typical meals, those can be simple to keep done as used. Even the laundry. There was a time when if I even just tried on something and didn't wear it - it went in the laundry. Now that makes no sense! We can plan our work and work our plan better if it's a simplified plan. And it can allow for our taking time to BE, as well - and guiltlessly.

      The main thing is to ENJOY everything. My adage is: "If it can't be fun, why do it?" That means I sometimes have to find the fun in it or just make it fun if it must be done! It encourages creativity!
