The Absence of Motivation

girl-in-bed-1280x720

Oh motivation where have you gone?
Will you come back soon to where you belong?

Oh motivation where can you be?
Are you lost in the vastness of the wide open sea?

Oh motivation do you really exist?
I honestly need to know, I must insist!

Oh motivation will you give me a sign?
Can you please help me to free my mind?

Oh motivation what is your goal?
Are you lost in the mind of a tired old soul?

Oh motivation can you please tell me the truth?
Are you ever coming back to me, or have you moved to Duluth?

Oh motivation am I being too impatient?
What should I do, wait until I’m ancient?

Oh motivation are you really as important as you seem?
Are you really of any value, or just a fanciful dream?

Oh motivation are you really gone?
Don’t you know that without you I am not very strong?

Oh motivation can’t you see?
Without you, I am not being me.

#MidnightMadness – 5/26/2017

The other day I told my daughter (15) that all of the forks were being washed in the dishwasher and so she’d have to use a spoon to eat her meal.  I had a serving spoon on the counter for her to dish up her meal with, and I figured she’d grab a normal size spoon out of the silverware drawer to eat with.

When I came back a little while later, I found her eating her salad with this…

Yes!  That’s the serving spoon!  I took one look at her and said, “Why aren’t you using a regular sized spoon to eat with?”  She looked at me with wide confused eyes and then began to laugh so hard she could barely talk…  She said, “Oh mom, I thought you meant all the silverware was in the dishwasher and I had to eat with the serving spoon!”

Anyway, it was really funny, and she’s such a petite little person.  So to see her trying to eat with this huge serving spoon made us both laugh.

And look at the difference in size!  Lol… 😉

So, I was in a rush this morning and tried to save myself some time by putting all the eggs together in one skillet.  Here’s what happened… lol.

My daughter Brianna (15) took one look and said…

“Mom, something went wrong there…”

 

Do you think perhaps she’s correct in her assessment?  Lol… 😉

And just so you know… I didn’t break a single yoke when flipping them over.  So it wasn’t a complete disaster.  🙂

“Hey Mom!  What is this, a knitting needle?”

Caitlyn Cook (daughter, age 23)

 

How many of you know what this is?  I suppose it could pass for a crochet needle, but it’s actually an orange peeler.  My girls never cease to surprise me by their odd questions, even at this age.  Lol…. 😉

I never knew blueberries and raspberries could look like people.  Lol…  😉

#MidnightMadness – 5/9/2017

Every night at the dinner table, we have somebody pose a question.  Tonight my daughter asked… “What’s the weirdest dream you’ve ever had?”  My husband immediately chimes in… “Nope, there’s not enough time in this life for that one!”  And straightaway he looks right at me and smirks.  Lol….

Here’s a few of them I’ve written about… what do you think, is he right?  😉

The Narrow Escape

It was the year 2117…

A dream that I will never forget…

Premonition

The Vision

Another Vision

One night, my youngest daughter Autumn (who was about 5 yrs. old at the time) was visited by the tooth fairy.  The next morning I asked her if the tooth fairy had come.  She nodded yes and had a very glum look on her face.  I asked her what was wrong and she told me to come see for myself.  After following her into her bedroom, she pulled out a one dollar bill from under her pillow and said, “See… this is what she gave me!”  I said, “Oh, a dollar!  That’s exciting!  She shook her head in disagreement and said, “Well, the last time I got a whole quarter!”

Death of a clothes dryer…

564073_467240713303768_2012967538_n

Oh the poor dryer just went

It was part of a very nice set

But after fourteen years of nonevent

It finally decided to blow a gasket

The heavy loads it underwent

Caused it to rust and dent

And now I must lament

Over the money that must be spent

For there’s no way to circumvent

A dryer which has gone to this extent

Oh why must life be hell bent

In bringing such discontent

I guess I should reinvent

And make a dryer that’s tough as cement

Then maybe I’ll make a few cents

Out of a rather frustrating event

And if this becomes a reoccurring incident

They’ll have to send me to a convent

Where I’ll be forced to repent

For the bad words I’m about to vent
