Have you done something you truly want to do today?
Well, no, probably not. Then again, maybe — Those grits I made were yummy. I think it’s the ‘truly’ that throws me off. I like having clean things, therefore I clean them. I enjoy flexibility, therefore I stretch. I prefer bein warm and timely, therefore I drove my kids to school.
Ideally, truly, I would have preferred to sleep in, to have morning sex, and then to have been served a nice plate of poached eggs on toast as breakfast in bed, where I then would spend the rest of the afternoon playing Scrabble, reading, and petting my cats.
What can you help the world with?
Oh wow. This Monday is intense, isn’t it? I can really only impact the world with my own behavior and hope it ripples outward. I can and do help people, but not the whole world. Prolly. I can word. I’m good for a few laughs.
If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’… which fruit other than a cherry would you be..?
Cherries are my favorite. I want to be a cherry. I took a What Fruit Am I? quiz once and it told me I was a coconut. But pineapple is yellow and tart and juicy. (I had pineapple before the grits.) I think I’ll be a Piña Colada. With a cherry on top.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week was utter crap. I’m glad I survived. I am still recovering. I will know I’ve recovered when I stop writing poetry and staring at my trees. In an attempt to dislodge the suck from my week, I have used gratitude, power-cleaning, new shoes, ooey-gooey mac n’ cheese, laughter, The Mister’s right shoulder, and a sleeve of do-si-dos.
This week coming up, I am looking forward to Cletus the Dog Kitten having his front paws declawed. Then I am looking forward to darning the corner of my new chair, rehanging wallpaper, and repainting the door jambs. Yay. If you have opinions about the cruelty of declaw, you should write about that on your own blog, because my hair looks good and the wind is blowing just right and this is not a day to mess with me.
