Whatever

Today has been one of those days where I could never seem to get out of my own way. No matter what I did today, I made the job seem longer and less productive. I managed to wash the load of towels that I forgot to dry yesterday, thus leaving them a bit stale and mildewy but The Boy pulled them from the dryer damp. Whatever. I am only doing that twice. I folded the slightly damp towels and put them in the bathroom. They will use them all in a day and they are just going to wrap their wet, showered bodies in them anyway. I started something on the loom, and pulled it all out three times and started over, and honestly, I have no idea what I am making so why am I being so fussy? Whatever. It relaxes me to loom knit, much more than real knitting. It's something for my fingers to do while my mind races elsewhere. This afternoon the breeze pulled all the clouds apart and swirled them into some secret cumulus calligraphy in the sky. I thought if only I could read this strange sky language, I would unravel more than just my knitting, I could unravel the mysteries of the universe. But try as I might, I could not decode it. Whatever. I really should have spent more time on my various online activities and even daily real life activities. I didn't. Whatever. Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

I am going to try to do better today. But it's 9:47 and I am not dressed yet, so I am not kicking it off too well.

I had a good Wednesday, but today it's going to be a wasted day. I had to go out to buy grocery and it took forever. Why people are so slow when they have to check out and pay!?

The checkout is the longest part of any grocery shopping trip. I hate it. You spend your time going around the store and picking out what you want, and you would like to just be done. You have it, take it home. But instead you have to stand in line behind people who are shopping for a family of 12, have coupons, write checks, generally move slowly and are annoying. That's why I ordered my groceries this week,

@Rollo1 So true, and when they pay cash they start to look in their purse if they have a dime or a quarter and count the money ten times. This gives me stomach cramps.

Some days I just have no energy for anything. I must learn to forgive myself. I can do that while napping, right?

@Rollo1 Why tomorrow? There will be a lot more days after tomorrow so we can spread the jobs out thin.

Ah, yes. Mysteries of the universe in the cumulus calligraphy. That would be something. I hope that things are better now. I had one of those days recently and was not impressed whatsoever. It is sort of irritating actually.

I am trying but today I have the exhaustion mode happening. I want to lie down and melt into one of those puddles that the red shirts on the orginal Star Trek are rendered into by aliens when the hapless unimportant crewmembers beam down on an away team.

It may be that you feel bothered by something in your mind and you were not able to fully concentrate on the activities which you undertook. You should take it easy, it happens with all of us. Undoubtedly, there is always a tomorrow.

So true. Whatever else happens the clouds will always be a mystery, the towels will always be damp, and the chores will always be there. Whatever

Hope you have a better day tomorrow. I've had the house to myself today so it's been good. I don't mind a bit of time alone. Now Vince is retired we rarely have much time apart.

I never have the house to myself. Haven't for decades. I think it might be nice. Maybe it would be nice in a nicer house.

I took a little time today to vacuum the house. We have had so much rain here lately, and my carpet was full of sand. I hate it whenever I forget to dry a load of clothes and have to rewash.

I hope you have a better day tomorrow. I've forgotten to start the dryer at times too. It really irritates me when I find the load still wet.
