Week in Review – Thanks a lot, Non-Driver!
I had to work today, but the morning drive was worth it.
Otherwise, I wouldn’t have gotten out to see this beautiful sky
and the early morning light setting the leaves ablaze
with scarlet and yellow and orange and burnt umber.
I came home tonight to find a buck in my front yard.
He was probably small; the ones I’ve seen recently are.
(His rack was still small and just 4 points.)
But in the dark? Man, did he look big to me!
Why is everything I own
covered in either dog hair or crumbs?
That was a rhetorical question.
curse word, curse word, curse word…
mental shaking of my fist…
at YOU, non-driver!
Feel free to ride the middle of an unlined country road;
I’m fine with that.
I do that.
We all do it.
But when you’re rounding a blind curve,
it’s a good idea to stay the hell on your own side.
Thanks for the heart palpitations, jerk!
Now I feel guilty for being so mean.
I’m sure you just weren’t thinking;
it’s not the kind of thing people do on purpose.
Now I feel bad about myself.
Thanks a lot.
I found out today that someone outbid me on the house.
But that’s really okay.
I was beginning to stress about the money and how tight it would be,
so it was pretty easy to just let it go.
I finally remembered to water my plants today.
They all seemed to look up at me with a scornful expression,
as if to say, “Thanks for almost caring, lady.
See you again in a month.”
My sister and brother-in-law hosted an early
Thanksgiving dinner for the whole family,
and between his family and ours,
there were 46 people there tonight.
They had to move all their furniture outside
to make room for the tables they rented.
It was loud and hot and crowded,
so I only stayed six hours.
And I loved every second of it.
