The Month Of January More Than Half Over
What does this mean?
Time waits for no man or woman
We have to find ways to use our time wisely
It is here today and if not careful tomorrow will be quickly gone too
When we are busy
It is easy not to even notice
When we are slow
Time seems to drag
After a few weeks
You will be saying what I am saying
Where does the time go?
Out that old window with the winters heat
It is time that we stop clowning around
We have to be serious for a moment
Lets get down to business
It is too late
Not with that attitude
We are not going to get anywhere
Take a breath
We can always do all kinds of things
We forget as our eyes get tired
Heavy as they may be
We have to start at a point of interest
A point of major concern
We can make slow changes that will help us move in a direction
We will like and feel proud of
It might not be any big deal
A little movement of getting more sleep
Staying positive even though everyone around you is negative
Going back to the drawing board and working on an old idea
Reading one more chapter of a book
After a few yawns
i sit here in the pilot seat
With my trusted co-pilot by my side
Yes, my cat Charlotte is here to see me through
My wife in bed an hour ago
She had a busy but good day at work
She likes staying home
It gives her some time alone and less chatter at the office
Only her and our loyal companion Charlotte
At this time napping in the back room
Getting such needed rest
Twelve to fourteen hours is hardly enough
I know we can squeeze in a few more
My brain is shutting down
I have to pack it up for today
Charlotte your on your own
Mind the house
Mommy and Daddy will see you in the morning
Tomorrow there will be more fish to fry

Brenda Arledge I hope you are safe with all the craziness that is happening everywhere. Back at it every day hoping to discover or rediscover little bits and pieces of life and put them all together. Feeling good and trying to reflect that in my writing. Then when I am down and out I try to pull myself together and find the things that mean the most in my life. People I care about and life that we all try to make the most of and be happy. So many wonderful people in the world and it is a real shame not to admire and enjoy the love they have. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope tomorrow is especially beautiful for you.

I love that your kitty cat is helping you. They seem to make the best companions for those late night thoughts.
One more thing to do before we get that much needed sleep.
This must be a common thing for writers.
Take care & don't forget that fish fry.

DW Davis You are so right. One day you might find an easier way and if you do maybe you wouldn't mind sharing. I do what I can and then leave the rest for tomorrow. Things somehow get done. If I had more time could I accomplish so much more? Maybe or maybe not. I might just burn out. Then again we might never know. Thank you so much for all your helpful tips and suggestions. Even if we only do a little we have time to plan for the next big thing. Enjoy your evening.

There are always "more fish to fry." The only thing there doesn't seem to be enough time to do these days is slow down and take it easy for a moment.
