Times A Tick'n

Updated on January 19, 2012

Waste Not Want Not

I don't exactly know what that means

But if I was to take an educated guess

I would say make the best of your day no matter what you have been given

Because you never know what tomorrow will bring

So with that said

Lets go to it and pull out the stopper in the tub

Throw a towel on you and get moving

You have the whole day ahead of you

I know you thought just kick back and enjoy a cozy luxury bath

When most people just take those long ,long showers

I hate to get out

I hate it also when I am dripping wet

I want to go back in and turn the water back on and shampoo my hair once again

I feel like I can do anything when I am in the shower

It is only later when I run out of energy and my body says it is time to call it quits

I was so filled with energy and spunk after getting dressed

I felt like I had an energy bar and a healthy power nutrition drink

Where I can go and go and my mind is clear

I can do anything I want

Then why am I still here

I have to carefully calculate my time and make sure I use it percisely for the right thing

I can go to the gym or go work some overtime

Both would finish off my day with a bang

One lift to stay in shape or another to make some extra bucks

What will I decide ?

Oh you guessed it all this talk made me tired

I am going to eat some grapes and watch a little t.v.

Fall asleep dreaming

Before you know it the day will be over and tomorrow we will think of a plan

Better than this one

Sometimes you win

Sometimes you lose

Sometimes you come out even and call it quits before anything changes

      b. Malin Your living my dream.Enjoying the beautiful water and exercising too.I can stay in a shower so long that my hands and feet begin to pune up.I have set off the fire alarm more than once from the hot steam in the shower.You should see me trying to shut them off buck naked getting up and down a chair after I come running out of the shower.Thanx so much.

      I think I can see myself in your Wonderful Poem too, "Dream On". I Love "Clean Hair Days" that's what Lover Man and I call our showers...which we take every other day, and on Dirty Hair day, we are in the Pool of course we use the outdoor shower! A very Cleansing, Refreshing Poem, loved the Wit of it!

      Dim Flaxenwick Off to the showers with you.I love a good hot shower at night to be nice and clean and to put me asleep.Then I get a cool shower almost cold to refresh me and wake me up anytime in the day to revive me.I don't even use soap and shampoo.It is just like a dip in the pool but so much less room and no maintance.Thanx for all your sweet comments.
