"I am SO loving..."
(aka: Some Random Tuesday fun)
A few days ago, the "assignment" on the Poem-a-Day challenge I'm participating in was to write a poem with the line "I am so over _____" in it. I had to think about those things that are, as my pre-teen would especially say, "so yesterday" to me.
So, I came up with this poem:
"I am so over..."
I am so over excuses,
and the blame game,
and the it's-not-my-faults.
I am so over Paris,
I am so over anger,
I am so over
so many things
(Grey's Anatomy and size-2 models also come to mind),
but I won't continue to
with this overly long list.
Just suffice it to say that I'm
taking responsibility for my life,
teaching my daughters about real role models,
smiling instead of harping on what-should've-been,
and eating a big gooey brownie
while watching "Lost" on Thursday nights.
But, that's not the only question I have for you today on RT (I've decided now I'm just abbreviating it. LOL).
When I was writing about those things that get on my nerves, I also got to thinking about those things I'll NEVER be over...the sorts of things that just make me happy, in a simple way.
So, here are a few things that I have SO loved in the last couple of days...
* Sydney asking McKenna to lie down in the backyard and watch stars with her. And then McKenna promptly dragging a sleeping bag out onto the ground, lying down with Sydney, and them talking to each other about the stars above them. Extremely sweet!
* Gary surprising us by coming home early from work and telling us we're heading to the park. We hopped into McKenna's convertible, enjoyed the sun and the breeze on the drive over, and all enjoyed the slides, the swings, and the monkey bars together. (And, then, Adrienne and her kids showed up. So it was even better!)
* Taking Sydney to dance class, leaving McKenna and Delaney at home, then going to Arby's all by myself for 45 minutes of "me" time. I ate a chocolate turnover, wrote a poem, and "people watched." (I need to do that more often!)
* McKenna asking Sydney if she wanted to sleep with her in her bed, then coming back downstairs an hour later and finding them both sound asleep with the fan blowing on them and smiles on their faces.
There you go...your second question for RT...What are you SO loving right now? What makes you happy this morning? (again, post the answers in my comments or, better yet, pass it on and write a post on your own blog about it. Just let us know you're doing it, so we can all come visit you!)
Have a WONDERFUL Tuesday!!!!
