life took over for a whole freaky weekend

the weekend got busy and messy
i forgot Haiku Friday
my pc jammed up
Word wouldnt open
my thesis got 'trapped'
i freaked
i made pasta for a dinner party
what was i thinking?
i expressed every four hours
and neglected to take my iron
i slept in on sunday
i awoke to all the dinner party dishes
i freaked
grunted at husband all day
husband had the nerve to grunt back
kids woke the baby running about the stairs
lots of times
i freaked
lighting guy a no show for B2s performance
husband called in to cover
drama teacher sick
husband called in to cover
i cover our life while husband covers others
i freaked
then my mum came to visit and she told me a story
'bout a chinese student of hers who'd called himself Odour
he knew it was 'a smell'
but he liked how it sounded
more alluring than Jean-Michael or Ben
Thanks to Odour, i got some perspective

Kel,
stress less !!!
all will be ok !!

Kids will recover and Hubby will get over it.

Did you get your Thesis back ?

Have you solved the watertank challenge yet ?

Meditate, read, zone out , have at least an hour a day for YOU.

Take care
Phil

strangely, i think i might have liked Odour. Thanks Phil, all is well again, i needed a vent and writing helps. Peace decended (kids back at school!), thesis found, thank god and watertank still sitting in the drive...and it has now been joined by a whole heap of wood for the deck!
