Gone, But Not Forgotten – Thankful Thursday

So a year or so ago (possibly longer, my brain isn’t working), our dishwasher finally died. We weren’t able to replace it at the time, but that was fine. We all know how to wash dishes by hand (most of us…I suspect the kids washed things badly so they wouldn’t have that job, but the joke was on them! We just made them wash those things again.) But then we decided to renovate the kitchen. It wasn’t supposed to take this long (each time we think we’ve caught all the problems, three more seemingly sprout out of nothingness) because we had all the things figured out and such.

I’m positive that if inanimate objects could laugh, all the parts of our kitchen would have died without being able to breathe.

It’s now been a month since we had to disconnect the kitchen sink and I have found that I didn’t appreciate it anywhere near what I used to. Washing things in a smaller tub placed inside of our regular bathroom tub is a royal pain.

You just don’t know what you had until it’s been gone for a month and counting.

This was an unusual thought for this kind of post, but I couldn’t seem to focus on anything else. (Still have that cold that messes with my head…)

Not in Sight

Foundations rattled
Occupied, yet not
Currently lost in space
Utilizing last known coordinates wisely
Sharply bringing everything, only now lost

I hate it when I have a cold. It took me literally all day to get this written and I kept forgetting what I was even doing.

Sleepy Time Adventures – One-Liner Wednesday

I know people talk in their sleep (my third eldest sister and her college roommate had long conversations into the night. I know, I was there on some weekends to visit. There was no sleep those nights), but my dog growls in is sleep sometimes.

He’s doing it right now as he sleeps under the piano. Every now and then he’s just snoring, but sometimes he’s growling at whatever he’s dreaming about.

Making the Same Moves

Insanity called hope.

Moving forward
Ever onwards
Fearful heart
Eyes wide

Step by step
Endlessly in front
Skips a beat
Tears glisten within

Not going to stop
Do not turn back
Blood pulses through wounds
Tracks laid down cheeks

Have a place called home
Will reach it some day
Each drop shed not important
Long as it leads the way

No Treats For You! – One-Liner Wednesday

I just wanted to finish one half of my twin popsicle by myself instead of having to defend it from three kittens, one surprisingly agile granny cat, and one large dog.

Seriously, I just wanted a chance to eat my treat in peace, but there is no such thing in this house.

Check out the original One-Liner Wednesday.

Nothing to see here…

Have you ever just been walking along, or reading, or watching a movie, or even just listening to music while working and out of nowhere it happens…
