I Was Gonna Do Stuff.

I Was Gonna Do Stuff.

I was gonna do stuff, but then I didn’t. I will now though.

Crown Cinquain of Doubt.

Crown Cinquain of Doubt.

I sit to contemplate my future. What will be will be was never my preferred mantra.   I want to make choices grown from my heart, my soul. No more rash decisions rooted in fear.   And yet the angst looms still. No faith in fate springs from the past and I lack courage to push on.   I need a crystal ball to tell me all will work out as I yearn for sanguine prom- ises.   I must rally or risk stagnation. Forge ahead. Pretend I know the pathway but can I? I’m joining the March Poetry Slam at yeah write with this crown cinquain....

Cook, Potatoes, Cook!

Cook, Potatoes, Cook!

I made the cranberry sauce this morning before work. I also peeled the sweet potatoes. At lunchtime, I peeled the white potatoes. Right after a full day of work, I finished making the sweet potatoes. All they need are some marshmallows tomorrow. My husband and I jointly made a pumpkin pie which is cooling on the table. I have been cleaning as I go. Things are mostly in order. I delegated some food items this year because I simply cannot deal. I put my still-not-100%-feeling-better kid to bed and started the other potatoes. All I need is for them to finish cooking so I can mash and whip them and then I can sit down for the night. There is a ton more to do tomorrow before company gets here and that’s fine. I’ll get to it. Or at least most of it and if I don’t, then I don’t care because I simply cannot deal with that either. But these potatoes… they aren’t cooking fast enough. As I type, they are still boiling. Hang on, let me go check them… …They were done. And just as I was about to mash them, our pizza arrived. You didn’t think I was going to cook a meal for tonight, too, did you? So I mashed and I ate. Now I’m sleepy. Tomorrow is a new day, with lots of cooking and cleaning and being thankful and all that crap. I mean good stuff. Yes, good stuff, that’s what I meant. Happy Thanksgiving Eve, people.

Honesty.

Honesty.

If I’m being honest… I don’t feel like blogging tonight. ~ I have seen the entire series of 30 Rock probably over 100 times and I’m perfectly happy to be watching it again tonight. ~ I just ate an ice cream sandwich and there is a very real possibility I’m going to get up and get myself another when I’m done writing this. ~ Even though one of my very smart friends told me that the pain in my jaw is probably from stress, I’ve still been slightly worried all day that I have tetanus. ~ I lost my patience with my son tonight because I am not a very patient person and his grumpiness over being sick was just more than I could take today. ~ My lunch consisted of mozzarella sticks, root beer, potato chips, french onion dip and half a candy bar. ~ I spend way too much time daydreaming about selling all of my material belongings and moving to a tiny cabin in California. ~ I don’t really believe that women can have it all and I don’t think work/life balance exists. ~ I have been trying to read the same book for two months and by trying to read I mean it’s sitting on my night stand not getting read. ~ I don’t think I’m going to make it to 9 p.m. tonight. ~ I’m going to go eat that second ice cream sandwich now.

The Whiniest Post.

The Whiniest Post.

Today… started at 5am… with a migraine and cramps so bad I could feel them in my ankles… then the power went out at 10:15… before the heater had really kicked in so the house was freezing… and there’s no coffee when the power goes out… so I took my lunch break at 10:15… and couldn’t get any of the things done that I had intended to do during my lunch break… and which makes the rest of the day seem so unbearably long… then my kid came home from school with a box of 52 candy bars he needs to sell but I barely leave the house so I’ll probably end up eating most of them… and then I ate the crispy rice candy bar… while my kid complained… and just as we were finishing up the evening nonsense… I discovered the kitchen sink that I just replaced not even six months ago leaked all over the place and now tomorrow I have to have a plumber in… so I just give up… and I’m going to eat my dinner and then another candy bar and then hopefully go to sleep.
