My Bradford Pear Tree in bloom
Well I don’t know if I’m at a loss for words this time, just too darn tired, or there’s nothing extraordinary going on at the moment. But I wanted to post something. Maybe the nothing post isn’t a good name. That reminds me of an old Seinfeld episode.
Mostly my days are taken up with work lately and that wears me out standing up all day and putting up with the crazy people we get in the store. You honestly wouldn’t believe some of the things that people do—or maybe you would. When I get home I just want to chill out and not talk to anyone.
Plus, I’m beat on top of it all but I know we’ve all been there. I should really get to bed earlier, but I never do somehow. Life is more than just work, cooking and cleaning—or it should be in my mind, so I feel I have to read or write something at night. Otherwise I find myself in the rut of sleeping, working, eating and cleaning and then repeating the whole list again. Maybe that’s fine for some people, but not for me.
On the good side, the days are warming up and the sun is out so things are really looking up in that department. I’m ready for summer. Bring it on.
We went out and trimmed the palm trees last week and my arms are in shreds from those thorns. They can be quite wicked, but the wounds are gradually healing up. The sty in my eye is still there too (three weeks today) but I’m hoping that goes away soon so I can get a consult with a doctor for cataract surgery. As you get older in life, there are so many obstacles to overcome all the time. I didn’t find out I even had cataracts until I had my eye exam two weeks ago. No wonder I can’t see a thing. I’m just wondering how they got there.
All my fur babies are fine. Sometimes they leave me a gift of a throw up to clean up when I get home, but that’s just life with a cat. I love them to pieces and they’re always happy to see me. That makes up for it all.
Other than all that, I’m trying to get ready for the A to Z Challenge this year, but only have half of my posts written so far because I have no extra time to get my head into that. I hope it all comes together in time. I am optimistic it will. I also have the added pressure of getting our taxes done on top of all that. So you can see there’s never a lack of things for my mind to think about.
I hope all of you are enjoying a nice spring.
