Monday has traditionally been a day I let myself off the hook. Oh, who am I kidding? I let myself off the hook all the time! There’s Tired Tuesday, Wuss-out Wednesday, and who could forget Lame Post Friday? That said, I let myself off the hook today.
For one reason, I returned to work, at a previous place of employment. This is not a work blog, so I will not elaborate except to say that it was not a bad day at all. My former co-workers welcomed me back, which felt very nice indeed. Still, work is work, and I am not a young woman. I returned home tired and mentally revising the to-do list I had compiled this morning.
I was afraid the post was a bit dull, so I threw in a picture. Joan Crawford with an ax, there could be no possible objection.
Four things I felt must be done on my list: take out trash and recyclables, fix tomorrow’s lunch, put on coffee, and make my blog post. I have done (am doing) them in that order.
I am navigating my life as a widow with varying degrees of success. I believe that is to be expected. I look at other people who have greater tragedies to deal with and fewer supports to help them, and I count my blessings. This does not necessarily alleviate my feelings, but I try to let it inform my behavior. I don’t know if that makes any sense. Do you suppose sense is overrated?
I see I am over 250 words. Score! I am going to bill this as a Middle-aged Musings Monday, although a friend recently pointed out that if I am middle-aged now, I must live to be well over 100. Don’t you just hate those didactic types?
You’re an amazing strong organized and beautiful person. You’re setting up plans and following them. I’d be a scatterbrained fool in your shoes. You’re awesome.
What do you suppose she was using the axe on???? Hmmmm…
You are very sweet to say such nice things to me. I do not think you would be a scatterbrained fool ever. Regarding Joan, you can watch the movie StraitJacket to find out; it’s a really fun flick!
