For yesterday’s post,
My father called to tell me

Red vintage phone on a blue background

He would agree to have the surgery.

Dog paw and human hand are doing handshake

(His surgery is now scheduled for Friday morning.)

As for today…

After I finished frantically
Cleaning the house this morning

In preparation for
The cleaning people to clean,

Perfect room service

I’ve done nothing

Except leave the house

To go get a late lunch
Of fajitas & margaritas –

mexican grilled chicken fajitas in iron skillet shot from overhead on slate

(*None of the pictures I could find
Looked as good as my meal actually was.)

One of which I’m hoping
Will help ease my tension

Hand squeezing a stress ball

And quiet my pounding headache.

Macro relaxing facial massage.

As much as I’d like
To get a big burst
Of productive energy,

I’m tempted to beat myself

While trying to
Pull myself together –


Something that seems to be
An unusually common pastime for me.

Ready to watch TV with bowl of pop corn

Then again…

In all that I do.

To turn over a new leaf –

Sapling of the tree

To make myself into something better
