So here's my day so far:

I got up at 5:30 as usual. Made the coffee, fed the dogs, gave them fresh water for the day, drank my coffee. Had a limerick running through my head so turned on the computer, finished and posted the limerick. Decided I needed to eat breakfast, but dishes were piled up in the kitchen so loaded the dishwasher. Took the dirty kitchen towels into the laundry room and noticed the plants on the windowsill were a little droopy so watered them. Then I figured I'd better water the outside plants. Noticed there was dog poop to pick up, so I picked it up and put it in the bucket, which needed to be emptied. Took that out front to the garbage; while I was out there, I watered the plants in the front yard. Came in and took a shower. Went into the bedroom to get dressed and saw my peace lily was a little droopy - watered it. Opened the drapes in the bedroom; made the bed; got dressed. Oops, forgot to water the backyard plants. Watered them. More dog poop - no bag in the bucket. Went back inside to get a bag. Had to move the recycle bin, which is full, to get to the drawer where the bags are. Emptied the recycle bin. Went into the laundry room to get a new bag for it; laundry piled up so threw a load in the washer. Now it's 9am; I'm exhausted already; and hungry. There's still no bag in the poop bucket; no bag in the recycle bin; the dishwasher hasn't been started. Aargh!

So how's your day going??

I'm laughing at this because your day sounds so familiar. I believe I'm wearing it.

I get up and drag my big butt to the coffee machine...pray to the coffee God's that it will be quicker than usual, turn it on, turn around to the kitty cat that is screaming, "oh sure, it's all about youuuu" and feed her, turn around to the violet that needs watering, do that...go to the liter box, ewwwwwwwww, what the devil does she eat! Do that...return to the coffee pot, say another prayer...check emails, answer fan mail, both of them, return to the coffee pot. Pour the blessed liquid in a cup and stand there, daydreaming and drinking. Wake up. Look down at screaming cat who wants to be held. Hold cat. Drink...pet cat...drink. Put cat down. Drink.

Open back door and shout, "Morning world!" Drink. Close door.

Open back door and shout, "Miss Kitty, get your butt back in here." Close door.

Drink....

At least you didn't try to drink from the cat and pet the coffee cup!

At least you ladies can't say you're bored. Me, I have no laundry to wash, sink free of dishes, no plants to water, no animals to tend to, don't drink coffee, took my shower last night before bedtime, the car has a full tank but come to think of it mine is empty... Drove to McDonalds for an Egg Mc Muffin and an ice tea. Went to the dog park to watch the dogs playing and having fun. Bad idea! Came home, changed cloths and fell into the pool...after nearly drowning; I walked the pool seventeen times for exercise. Retirement sucks sometimes...Might as well do some work, blah!

Yesterday I had a bored day too. I actually had tons to do, but couldn't get myself to do it. Sometimes I think we just might need those days to gather our thoughts and think about our lives. So yesterday I did some hard thinking. And today? I have more energy.

Walking the pool 17 times is great, chatty. That is so healthy.
I do know what you mean about retirement sucks. I sort of get a glimplse of that life when on vacation. After two weeks I need a task, I need to work. How is your book coming along? Have you started yet?

Actually my life is sort of exciting today, because Hubby and I had a fight. He left the house, and I don't know if he will come back. How's that for an adrenelin kick? :-)

I totally believe we need days to gather our thoughts..to process the latest learning curve our lives have taken.
and as for quarrels...within the family it can be cleansing to ruffel a few feathers just so folks know how the land lies..

getting the balance between the quiet days and days where we pursue interests and engage with others is healthy..
there are days when I manage to get that balance spot on and feel
as a good friends says "in the zone" and other days when my batteries need charging..its then I am content to stay at home and garden and call it my at "home day"

Absolutely, MA, and very well said. I too fine some days flow along like the Mississippi and then others it is like I have both feet stuck in mud.

Life is still the best gig in town...(you'll hear me say from time to time).

Balance can be a tricky thing, but doable!

Edelweiss, of course he'll be back, what would he do without you to keep him on course???

I too feel better today. My batteries are recharged.

Went to the NSPCA to see about adopting a cutie pie I saw on their website. Her names Ginger and she is a white 8 month old Cairn Terrier mix but as luck would have it, she has a brother who is 18 months old, they are bonded and so have to go together. I don't want a male dog and only want one so couldn't get her. The can't be separated, and I understand that so I'll keep checking the site, and one day I'll a cutie that needs a home, theres no rush...

Yup, chatty, you're right. He's back. We aren't talking, but I'm not breaking the silence. I'm enjoying it too much.

MA, Our feathers are still ruffled, maybe even standing on end...but I do agree, it could have something cleansing.

JJ, "life is the best gig in town"...I like that.

Chatty, I think looking for your new pup can be the most fun. It's sort of looking for a new home. Take your time, have fun looking, and compare.

Balance
in the circus little children learn to walk the tightrope from an early age..must take trust in the adults around them.Then many go on to do greater things...become acrobats.
Likewise
it takes trust in others and in ourselves to climb the ladder that leads to balance

Oh MA...how profound and so true. Trust in ourselves...I fail my own self on many an occasion. I try really hard to go with my gut instincts. They never fail me. I usually ask myself, how do you feel about this or that. Then I follow the feeling.

You're so wise!

Really nice folks bend over backwards to give others and situations a "chance" and thats you JJ..
Gut feelings..instinct...wisdom..maybe its survival.
we also learn through experience and put that learning into action with "adult" decisions.

I'm all for intuition, MA. I think the older we get, the better our intuition as we've had more experiences to integrate into that intuition. I've been working on my partner to trust his intuition. There have been so many times when his gut said don't, and he did anyway, and it turned out wrong. I guess guys think intuition is a woman thing and think they should rely on logic. HA! I only know that his intuition is almost always right.

Ask him the next time he doesn't trust his instincts Yonuh:

If you can't trust yourself, who can you trust?

LOL, Chatty. I know what his answer would be - he would say he trusts me and my intuition. He is getting better at it though. His problem is he overthinks everything, and starts 2nd guessing himself. We have been together more than 15 years, and he has really come a long way in that time. (patting self on back!)

You don't need to go through menopause to have a fuzzy brain,
there yonuh! I know lots of "cloudly headed" people, of all ages.

I had hot flashes and night sweats. They weren't so bad. Not having a monthly visitor, is the only good thing about aging!

Now that I think about it, I invented the "Fuzzy Brain Syndrome." sleep

Now that you mention it, I do seem to be fuzzier-brained when my hair is shorter. Hmmmm. Coincidence?

That's because when the hair is shorter, there is more heat and cold going to the brain; long hair keeps it insulated and at a more even temperature.

Sounds good to me. LOL
