Wisps Of A Wednesday

Riley and Al talking about their new time share

~ ~ ~ 
I've been busy with my list.
This appointment and that paperwork.
All things I do not want to do.
Several times I've told myself that I do not need to do this.
I then after a bit of a nervous breakdown
tell myself that I do and that I can.

So, as my calendar has so many circled dates
with forms that go with them,
I decided to take a day off.

To pretend (like I love to do) for the day.
Went to a spa to get my roots done
the right way instead of the way
they got done last time.
More money involved but I'm kind of at 
that point in my life where I need
a 'me' day.
It went well except for the lady
who brought her two kids
(both under five)
and let them scream the whole time.
Don't even get me started on that.

Got home and like a good grown up,
I called about my test that I need
to get done next week.

I looked at that paperwork.
I can do that.

I got all my surgeons paperwork
in the mail today.
I need to get that filled out
and sent back to them.

Only the day before I have surgery,
I have to do all sorts of stuff.
Things that I did not know about.
(I had planned to go to the fancy
flower and garden show the night before.
Mr. Boatman said it was my last thrill
for a while and why not.
So, we had a plan.
Why not have fun the night before.
Surgery is first thing in the morning.)

Nope, now I have to stay home.
At least I think I do.
We will see what I can figure out.

Then, I read the paperwork.
All the 'what can happen' during surgery things.
Oh, that's just too much fun to read.
I'm having a cup of coffee.
Not as big a nervous breakdown this time.
They are getting smaller.
The 'I don't want to do this' moments.
The 'I think I could survive without this' kind.

I sleep a bit.
Wake up early.
Start to think about what's going on.
Did I say, I don't want to do this.
I'm being forced to do this.
All the people who don't have to have
 this done to them have told me that I do.

Anyway, I needed my hair day.
Since, I don't seem to be able to control
anything else in my life
at least I can have good looking roots.
And, they are by the way.
I finally found someone who did what I asked.
I don't look half bad.

And, the wisp of a Wednesday,
well, that's cause for a moment
I actually forgot what's going on.

Me, and my stupid failing kidney.
I'd rather watch the girls
play outside in the sort of misty day.
I'd rather watch Big Al and Riley
talk about who's turn it was
to enjoy the new condo.
I'd rather drink coffee in my cute cat cup.
I'd rather do anything else but what I have to do.

So, there you go.
Me and my wisp of a Wednesday.

And, I know no one reads this blog.
I have numbers but people are leaving in droves.
No one new has read my blog in forever.
And, I don't care.

I still write what's going on in my part of the woods.
Today, it's the cute dogs and cats
and the new roots
and the stupid paperwork
and the fact that 
I don't want to do this.

I feel better just writing this all out.

Hope your Wednesday was great.
I like Wispy Wednesdays.

Well I sure read your blog and I always enjoy coming here. We are constantly thinking of you and the challenges you face. We know you can do it! Keep writing though, it is good for the mind, body and soul. Hugs.

I, too, enjoy reading about what's going on in your woods. I hope Al and Riley work out an amicable lease arrangement for the new condo. Funny how those boxes are in such high demand. As for you: you gotta do what you gotta do. And that's the way it is. Glad your roots look good. Me? Never gonna color the grey away, so won't have to live with that problem! lol.

Well, I always read your blog, even if I don't leave a comment.

The most important thing is to blog for your Self -- at least, that's how I see it. You can only write for your own self, no one else.

I'll light a candle for you at It's a wonderful site, if you're not familiar with it.

really good that the colourist did what you wanted with the roots!! I am sort of waiting for the time when I have enough gray hair that I can colour it shocking pink. I hope the flower and garden show starts in enough time that you can go to it before the day you have to stay home!!!
I would be so tempted to not read all the what happens if paperwork. I know they say you should read everything, but the only choice you have is when to have the surgery...

Hmm, I'm here too and love to visit. I think of you often with positive thoughts winging their way to you.

What lies behind us and what lies before us
are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.
