Why some things just don't get done.

Do you ever wonder where the time goes. Why you don't accomplish as much as you want.

In the midst of trying to write this morning.

"Hey Mom - listen to this" and he rambles on about Godzilla and nuclear tests and did it really happen. So we look up the 1962 nuclear tests and read all about the starfish prime test and nuclear electromagnetic pulses.

Back to writing.

Meow, meow, meow comes the strident cry of kitten # 3 Gracie as she drags her fake tail toy across the kitchen to my chair. Time out to play.

Back to writing.

Scritch, scritch, scritch comes the scratching of cat claws on the patio door. Look over and kitten # 2 Melvin looks at me imploringly. Open the door and he eats a few bites and wants to go back out again.

Stare at the keyboard and think. "Hey mom! Come race with me!"

"In a few minutes, dear."

Scritch. I really need to trim all the cats claws, it sounds like finger nails on a chalkboard. Melvin's back at the door with that face. Open the door and he winds around my feet, then plops on his back. "Meow," he cries wiggling for a belly rub. A few minutes of belly rubs and he's back out the door. Only this time, I leave it open. I give up on playing door man.

Great thought and begin to type. "MOM!"

Off to race....

  2. Robin -- Definitely do check out Susan May Warren's books! They're great! Favorites of mine were "Happily Ever After", "Everything's Coming Up Josey", and this new one, "Nothing But Trouble". They're all firsts of her series' so you're not jumping in at random anywhere if you try any of these. ;)

  3. This was funny. I actually remember those days. Now they are all grown and gone. It's much too quiet.
