I Should Have Done This Yesterday

Updated on August 14, 2019

My Wife's Favorite Line

She used it so many times

I think the words are all worn out

They are holding on by a string

We have to make lots of decisions

Some are right

Some could of been better choices

Either way we take a bold step in one direction

One example that comes to mind

While I was writing this

The sun drifted in

I could no longer see what I was typing on my laptop

I went to put the light on

My wife says hold on

She taps the key that looks like a firecracker

It lights the whole key board up

I could put a pair of reading glasses on

I usually increase the font on the page to 140 anyway

I am so reluctant

I love to read

Glasses feel so restricting

There is a lovely breeze coming through the kitchen sliding glass door

I kick off my socks

So my toes can experience the full effect

My wife is watching something on her phone

She stops to show me

A video she is watching

Cool cleaning tips to use around the house

Sometimes I hesistate to watch

I am deep in thought

I don't always welcome the distraction

This time I have to eat my words

This video was really cool

So you never know what will happen from moment to moment

People that may one time be a bother

Turn out to be a real joy

I am limited on time

So before I shave and get ready for work

I have to eat

Wrap up what I started here

How many people at this very moment

Started something they will have to finish at a later date

Out of time

This will just have to wait

Till next time

When all my thoughts are in full focus

Ready to be examined under the microscope

In full scrutiny

I think all will go well

Unless someone has to walk the plank

Then there will be a mutany

I didn't see that coming

That is real life for you

Surprise after surprise

When you least expect it

      Gypsy Rose Lee It is so hard when you get sick. Things have to wait and the main thing is you have to get better. I am so happy writing is working out well for you. I am thrilled about your feeling better. Writing is definitely a challenging career. I enjoy reading all the different hubs. So much talent and what a great place to visit and spend an afternoon. Thank you for all your special and beautiful comments. It keeps me writing and dreaming of the next fantastic thing. Have a lovely Thursday.

      Dora Weithers It is so nice to see your comments and your suggestions. I appreciate the explanation and I will try not to make the same mistakes again. Grammar was not my forte. I have a lot of thoughts and they make their way to my mind and then I slowly present them in the best form possible. I have the free version of spell check and I make some corrections before it is finished. There is always room for improvement and it is so nice when we have a great opportunity to improve. Hopefully, my followers will enjoy my thoughts as well as better grammar. I remember someone saying If you do anything long enough you have to improve. i am living proof. Thank you again and may today be sweet and tomorrow even sweeter.

      BRENDA ARLEDGE Things happen during my day that makes my hair stand on end. I don't have a lot of hair so I must look really funny when that happens. Everyone is entitled to a bad hair day. If we hang in there the events will change. Ride out the tough times and before you know it things get better. Then yesterday is a thing of the past. Tomorrow is picking up and the day after even greater. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a lovely night.

      This is a wonderful relaxing poem. The setting in your everyday life was so normal.

      Putting things off is something which happens quite regularly....then wishing we had done it yesterday.

      Nice work.

      Just a reminder: "Should have" is what you really want to say in your title. "Should Have Done" would be perfect.

      "Of" is an intruder because "should of" may sound like "should have" but "of" is not welcome to be part of a verb.

      Just wanting to help.

      I got two surprises this week. One bad and one good. Last Saturday night I suddenly felt like a freight train had run me down. Now I don't even remember the last time I was sick. A nasty virus had knocked me down with a slight fever. Sunday I was out of it but I knew one thing. I could not afford to take even a week off of my writing otherwise I would never catch up and money would not be trickling in. So I would write until I was ready to collapse and then lay down and rest. Monday it paid off and I got a nice tidy sum in my PayPal. So the rest of the week I did as best as I could and knew it would blow over in a week. Now I am just about over it and glad about that. Hope you have a great weekend.
