Making It All Work

Updated on May 22, 2012

Pot Luck

A day not planned or even on the books

Raining outside and just blah

Get up from a good sleep and throw the t.v. on and watch a couple of programs

My mind is still a blank and it shows

Still in my pajamas and I didn't even comb my hair

Grabbed a bowl of cereal and didn't remember eating it

Left over hambugers and hot dogs for lunch

I took out sausages to defrost last night for an hour or two

I fogot to put them in the fridge found them sitting on the counter

They sat out all night

No good now hard earned money gone to waste

I can't believe I didn't remember

Next time I'm going to set my alarm clock as a reminder

Even the trash guys didn't come

With my belly full I hopped in the shower to wake me up

Noontime come and gone the sun is not coming out

Work later and laundry put away

This is how I begin my day

I struggle to find the right words to describe my emotions

My whole body is on auto pilot

I struggle to find dirt in my eye that I mistakenly got in my face

Because I was careless with the shovel full of dirt

Irrating me to know end

My cat wants to tease me she knows when I am vunerable and weak

I let her do things she is not suppose to because I am too out of it to care

So she knocks off the speakers from the computer desk

Opening kitchen cabnet doors to get my attention

Ripping apart the toilet paper roll when I wasn't looking

After a nice shave I feel better

Work is a safe place for me and this is one time I don't mind going

I stretch my thoughts with washing dishes and vacuming the rugs

Little chores to make the house look nice and some kind of order

Ofcourse I didn't get anything done

This is one of those days

We go through the motions

No computer time because I am still spacey

As my wife and I chat about our differences

She asked what I did with all her socks

Did you find any

I have a pair but ?

There is always a but

She jokes about my selective hearing

What ? What ? I answer her repeatedly

I don't remember

Selective hearing too

We end with I love you and off to work we both go

Today was just one of those impossible days

I am sure we will never remember

      raciniwa Life seems to go so slow.As we look back we notice years have passed that we didn't even know.Scientists say our brains hold every thing we have ever done.It is stored in our memory somewhere.All we have to do is find it and we can relive every wonderful ,exciting ,thrilling moment once again.Here is to a life of love and happiness and endless pleasure.Thanx for sharing and reading my day and my life as it unfolds before my eyes.
