So, it occurred to me today that Mother’s Day is this weekend.
THIS weekend. As in the one that’s coming.
Good thing I was already way ahead in my planning! And had done… ummm… all of that… STUFF… that one does… for Mother’s Day! Yep! No worries, here! Alllllll taken care of! Hi Mom!
Does anyone want to guest blog for me while I just go run over to Hallmark for a minute…?
I’m kidding, of course. I can’t run out to Hallmark now; they’re closed. Besides, we’ve already established that I never have any stamps.
Mother’s Day is almost upon me, and then comes Memorial Day, and before you know it, school’s out for the summer. And I’m working full time and so of course I’ve made some sort of care arrangements for the kids for the summer. Of course. OF COURSE I HAVE! Really. And, hey, look! Something shiny RIGHT OVER THERE!
Arrangements need to be made. Some mundane, some more important. When I look ahead, I see crossroads. And I’m pretty sure I dropped my compass when I was looking at that shiny thing, earlier. In the meantime, I can’t stop looking at where I am right now or I’ll run off into a ditch.
On those rare occasions when I manage this elusive thing known as “going with the flow,” I feel like I always end up waking up with a start, realizing I forgot to set my alarm and I overslept by several hours. Is it any wonder I am loathe to “flow” when it so often ends with panic?
I wonder if calm acceptance and preparedness are mutually exclusive, or if this is just a, er, feature of my particular life.
Apropos of nothing, but as long as I’m going along with the travelling metaphor: I have the cure for what ails you! Well, only if what ails you is that you’re hairy. And you really think that everything in the world should be written like an automobile manual. But, hey, if THAT’s what ails you, I’m your gal. Rather, these people are for you. I received a free sample in the mail (cuz, hey, I have hair) and when pondering my life becomes a little too much, I sneak out the owner’s manual that came with my package and laugh myself silly. I am particularly enjoying the picture of the crocheted cozy! These are people who know how to rock!
Anyway, where was I? Oh, right. I was getting ready for Labor Day…
