A blank mind...maybe...

I have days like this one, where my mind is not going a million places at once. I just draw a blank when I try to think. Today is one of those days. It could be because I have actually done some things worthwhile today and it erased my mind of nonsense. In other words I must be thinking clearly if I am getting a blank. At least in my world...
With the help of my husband I managed to change the comforter, sheets and pillow cases on the bed and even went as far as dusting the dresser and the chest of drawers, where I removed "Hi" written on it. I have yet to convince my husband that if he would not write "dust me" or "help" on the pieces of furniture that he does, that company folks just might not notice the dust as quickly. I thought I had him broke, til I saw his artwork again today. I also got my meatloaf prepared and now all I hafta do tomorrow is pop it in the oven. I also cooked a pot of pinto beans. Jeff will be home tomorrow and he loves meatloaf. So tomorrow's dinner will be a meal to his liking.
... P A U S E...
Scuse me but the doorbell just rung. Telephones and doorbells are two things I dislike. Company just left and I came and started work on here and bless Pat the doorbell rings, but it was just my friendly Fed Ex man with my LLBean order.
Most all of my jobs when I worked consisted of answering a phone along with other duties. The last 8 years I worked, I learned to dislike having to answer a telephone. I want to use the word hate, but that is much too harsh, even for a telephone. As with everyone things come in bunches, if one calls comes in, be shore another will be a coming. Same with company. I can say I do enjoy company but not back to backers, but I cannot say I like telephones. Sorta like the cell phone I have that no one but my brother thought I just have to have. He took me and his wife and got us one the same day. He programmed it and showed me how to use it. It is sorta like my cane that was just about impossible to keep up with or remember to use. I do turn it on occasionally and call an out of state friend, but most of the time it is on the bar- I guess gathering dust along with everything else....
I am sharing the following with you because I can relate so well to it and the way I think it probably will relate to some of you folks.


Subject: Are You Ready For The Nut House?

It doesn't hurt to take a hard look at yourself from time to time, and this should help get you started ...

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the
Director what the criteria was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then
we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person
would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup.

"No," said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better to; paint a picture,
write a letter, bake a cake, or plant a seed, ponder the difference
between want and need.

Dust if you must, but there is not much time, with rivers to swim
and mountains to climb music to hear and books to read, friends to
cherish and life to lead. Puddles to jump in, and time for play...
and let's not forget that we have to crochet!

Dust if you must, but the world's out there the sun in your eyes,
the wind in your hair, a flutter of snow, a shower of rain, this day
will not come round again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind, old age will come and it's not
kind. And when you go, as go you must You, yourself, will make more
dust!
