Coffee With Woody

When isn't life crazy ?
I'm just asking
Cause mine seems nuts
And, I don't mean a good cashew

Just when you think everything has calmed down
Nope, something new knocks you back
Against the wall you go
Thinking .. I'm not old enough to handle this
Then you remember that you're not seventeen
You've lived on your own for a long time
Mom isn't going to give advice
When did I get old and wise
And, if I am that old
Why does this kind of stuff happen
Again and again and again

It's not like I live a wild life
I do sort of but really why me
I know ... what a silly thing to say
Of course me

It's just that I'd like some peace
To have things go right for once
To not have to worry about this or that

Without going into details
I just don't want to do this anymore
I want to wake up and be happy in the woods
The coffee is ok today
Bought it at Costco
Should save me lots of money
Got one of those big big bags
My freezer now smells like coffee
My son keeps telling me about it
I love it
The girls are snoozing
Maddy Jean went out and rolled in the lawn clipping
Thus, I have the gates back up
The smell reminds me of Summer
The fresh air smell right after the lawn is mowed
Had to refill bird tv before I had coffee
Wouldn't be right if there weren't birds eating
While I checked my email
Now would it
Plus, Riley and Jasmine were wondering
How long the commercial was going to be

So, how's your world today ?

My own world is a little crazy and a lot stressful at the moment, as well.

I wish you serenity, calm waters--not "dull," just peaceful days.

Woody is a big fellow isn't he? I think the coffee might help you relax and chase away the bad that keeps picking on you.

Blah....Thursday...waiting for Saturday ;)

Your sentiments are dead-on. I often think the same things. Bird TV looks pretty good today ;)

JC~ I truly get you.
I swear I was just thinking some of the same thoughts prior to reading your post. It's weird for me. I have a good life, I am blessed. I take what I have & make the best of it. But, sometimes, I just want to ask God to give me a break. Am I really deserving of so many crappy things? I swear sometimes I feel like a finally got my head above the water, then BAM! WTF? I am so scared to let my guard down. If I can just get through a "thing" that has been comsuming for 3 years I know I will be fine. Until then, I see my Therapist, take my Meds and fake it for another day.
Like I said, I have a good life a wonderful husband & daughters, great pets, friends, etc... but Golly Ghee... I am so spent!

JC said...

Thanks for understanding.
Everyone has their own troubles.
Mine aren't any worse than anyone else's only they are mine and I've had enough.

You would think surviving a coma and relearning to walk and talk would be all a gal should have to handle ... but no ...

It's more the emotional stuff.

I have to deal with my after the coma body ... and add in normal life ... and add in crazy life ... and well, you get it ...

And, it's not that big a thing ... it's just one thing after another after another after another ...

I pretend a lot too .. over here in my woods ... that nothing bothers me ... that I can survive anything.

It's just come on already ... enough is enough ... even though I know that this is life ... and I so wish it were what I thought life should / would be ... EASIER ...

Now, off to pet Meredith Ann .. cause after you do that ... life is better ...

And, thos snoozing dogs ... cute as can be ...

Lucy the Cat said...

I hope the craziness gets better. Sorry about the tough times. :(

The close-up of Woody is great. Glad the kitties got to see more of their favorite channel.

Yes, petting a kitty always helps!

Jacqueline said...

I can relate to the craziness and stress=does it ever end?!...I just try to appreciate the moments and grab the joy where I find it, usually with my kitties!...Hope your life calms down and you find some peace in your lovely woods...Hang in there sweet friend.

Remington said...

I hear you! Somedays.... I hope all the waters smooth out soon for you, my friend....

Dianne said...

I would love to have bird TV
there's not good place near the windows for a feeder
then again, it forces me to go out and walk about the yard to check on them

I know how you feel about needing a bit of peace and for things to go right

just stay in the moment
that's what I try to do

Mom here...I totally understand about just getting one step forward, something knocks you back 10 steps. We were just on the verge thinking all was fairly good, until, not this past, but the last Monday, our submersible water pump died. We had almost ZERO water. Enough for a quick and I mean QUICK shower, then just dips. The plumber guy cam e and fixed it that Wednesday night. Have yet to get a bill and I think I'll cringe when it arrives. Lord knows how much it's going to say! But, whatchya gonna do? $hit happens and that's the part of life the sux! Hoping your days get better!

JC said...

I felt better after I wrote it and pushed 'publish'.

Like I said, lots of things have been happening lately. LOTS...and this last one was just too much.

I spent a part of today thinking about everything ... over in my head.

No real solutions to the problems but I feel better about it.

Course it helped to have a silly snowshoe siamese bouncing around .. and believe me ... she was bouncing.

Life just never ends, well until you die. It just keeps throwing stuff at you. It does get tiresome sometimes though.

Well, as someone who feels like it is constantly just one bit of bad luck after another I can totally relate to this post - well, all but the coffee part (yuck). Hopefully things will start looking up for you soon!

You are not alone my friend, I am sending good thoughts and well wishes from Maine! Hang in there.

Sending a human hug here and there. ♥

JC, just look at the responses from all your blogger friends. I'm so glad that you can vent here, because every single one of us has had a bit of the same experience, in one way or another.

Down here in the desert, I am working on a tranquil outlook right now, as we are expecting temps of 105 over the weekend.

Have a peaceful one, my friend.

My world is pretty darn okay! Love the snapshot of the woodpecker!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
