Sorry it's not tomorrow....

In my life of working, children, friends, Twitter, calling my mother, emailing my sister, drinking an occasional beer with my father and coffee with my brother, there is still time to sleep a little, shower quickly, drive fast, and eat while I smoke. Yet, in the midst of all this living, I think. I think about the things I will do tomorrow.

My laundry for one. Grocery shopping for another. I still want to hang a new picture I bought 9 days ago!!! And then there is writing. I write in my mind all day long. I write at work, on the phone, in my car, and while I sleep. I think about writing all the time. I come home and jot a few things down. Then I say, I will post that tomorrow....

This is NOT tomorrow. I am very sorry my posts have disappeared. Please hang in there and know I will be back. I will get used to this overwhelming grind of work and being a grown up and will start posting again. I have a pile of notes, thoughts, and ideas.

Thoughts take over my day. My mind swirls and spins in a menagerie of words, stories, posts, jokes, quotes, and just plain silly stuff.

A quote came into my life today from Lady Chatterley's Lover,
"A woman has to live her life, or live to repent not having lived it."

Are we doing this? And not just women....men too. As PEOPLE, are we doing this? When I am 60, is it going to matter that I worked 71 hours this week? Probably, but only when I go in for my hip replacement!

All kidding aside, I will ponder this quote and it's meaning until I can post a meaningful thought. Or until a better one comes into my mind. Until then, what are your thoughts on it?

Are you living your life? Are you setting yourself up to regret that you didn't.

There are things in my life that I am putting off. I am putting it off until tomorrow. Until my day off. Until winter is over. Until the kids move out.

Until John Cusack.....well yeah, you get the idea!

So, you ponder this. Write your own thoughts, ideas, jokes, quotes, or just plain silly stuff.

And while you do that, I am going to hang up this really cool picture I bought!!!!

Until next time,
