"Down the Drain with Jane"

Ladies, I don’t know how you spend your days, but perhaps you days are similar to mine. I usually start the day picking up and putting up STUFF! The “But First Syndrome,” sets in with the phone ringing or the dogs barking! This usually takes until lunch time. This leaves me petty tuckered out, so I nap! How long my nap is depends on the phone and the dogs.

The afternoons are spent, looking for STUFF that I pickup and put up a couple of days ago. I know I put it somewhere but the egg hunt begins. This leaves STUFF out and will need to be put back. All of this happens while, yes! I answer the phone and see what the dogs are barking about.

The Dogs have been barking because they haven’t been fed and the phone calls are those of TELL A To someone who cares and not me calls! Sometimes I get so frustrated that I need to sit and have a cup of coffee. As I look about the room I see all sorts of STUFF that needs picking up and putting up. That can wait till tomorrow!

And you think Retired Folks just sit around the house all day, do you?

P.S. According to GRANDPA’S COUNTRY WISDOM: “No jackass ever got ahead by kicking up his heels every night.”
