Everything is so busy these days. Even people who are retired seem busy. My parents are both technically retired, but now they have their OWN businesses and seem to have less time than ever! (minus the 6 week cruises they sometimes take)
But life is like that. We comlpain when we don’t have enough time, and we complain when there’s nothing to do. But for the most part, especially me in my mid-thirties (cough, cough) life is just BUSY. It’s like a game of TETRIS most of the time eh?
“oh…ok…so TODAY, I have to make a lunch for her daycare tomorrow, wash part of my clothes and part of her clothes and maybe ONE of his shirts, because I don’t have time to do three loads…just the one…OK, THEN..oh right..we said we’re having fish today for supper, you know, to be healthy…yeah..uh…boy…guess I’d better actually buy some. Which means, I have to go to the store..oh man, why didn’t I fill the car up? Oh no, and where’s the rest of the toilet paper? It’s GONE? I JUST bought that? Now how am I gonna blow my nose! What’s this letter? Oh yeah, that membership fee for that good cause I signed up for…they take it out of my credit card? Each month? Well..we’ll see how long I can afford to be a philanthropist for…..ok, so, where was I? Hello? Yes, this is SHE. Sure, tell me about why I should vote for you and NO, I have nothing else goin’ on at this very moment! AHHHHHHHHHH!”
It never ends right? But, that’s life. That’s why we’re here. You have to work, to pay the bills, to raise the kids, to get food on the table. We all have to open mail, scrub the floor sometimes, take out horrible smelling garbage, wipe their noses, clean the remote control because there is spaghetti sauce on it from 2 weeks ago…and on and on. BUT, it’s these things that make the moments of serenity so sweet. When all of the dishes are done, and he’s back outside working in the garage, and she’s asleep. And it’s quiet. Ssssshhhhh. It’s that moment. It’s THAT moment, that is heaven.
Similar to that feeling of quietness…is when you are FINALLY alone in a bathroom stall….and no one at work knows where you are. But that’s just me.
cheers, xo kerr
ps…TETRIS is the magic word today. (600 points!)
