The week has started – not quite with a bang, but it has showed it’s presence clearly.
The weather is still a bit overcast, and according to the forecast on my phone, that’s the way it’s going to stay for the rest of the week. Overcast, thunderstorms, rain, clouds. Not a happy week I suppose, but all in all, not too bad – the garden has no problems with all the water, and the flowers just looks lovelier, the more it rains. Of course I suppose the roses will start complaining soon – they do like a bit of sunlight to dry out between rain bouts, but they’ll just have to suck it up – literally – everything else enjoys all the water!
I’m happy to say that this weekend saw me progress to 3 songs played on medium on guitar hero ;-). Quite proud of myself actually, the one I never even did the easy, just fell into the deepend and swam! Played so much, my arms actually got sore!! Suppose it did have something to do with the woodsawing on Friday as well as the pool playing, but I’m not really complaining – it’s all good.
Things are all good. I don’t have anything majorly outstanding moneywise anymore. Will have money to pay everything at the end of the month, be able to buy food I like, maybe even an extra chocolate or something. Why then do I still sleep with the light on? Why do I still have trouble falling asleep without reading until that happens? Why, when I do switch off the light I lie there, mind swirling in spirals? It’s not even circles, it just spirals down until I reach the bottom and stay there, thinking all manner of things, not being able to sleep. Might be the fact that even though I’m working this month, I have no guarantees that I will still be working next month. ANd the month after that, and the month after that…
Then again, who really has any guarantees?
Maybe none of us do.
Maybe I should write and submit a short story for P’kaboo – get my mind off things I have no real control over.
And how you lot enjoy your day!
A man called to testify at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), asked his accountant for advice on what to wear.
“Wear your shabbiest clothing. Let him think you are a pauper,” the accountant replied.
Then he asked his lawyer the same question, but got the opposite advice. “Do not let them intimidate you. Wear your most elegant suit and tie.”
Confused, the man went to his Priest, told him of the conflicting advice, and requested some resolution of the dilemma.
“Let me tell you a story,” replied the Priest.
“A woman, about to be married, asked her mother what to wear on her wedding night. ‘Wear a heavy, long, flannel nightgown that goes right up to your neck.’ But when she asked her best friend, she got conflicting advice. Wear your most sexy negligee, with a V neck right down to your navel.”
The man protested: “What does all this have to do with my problem with the IRS?!”
“Simple”, replied the Priest…
“It doesn’t matter what you wear, you are going to get screwed!”
