My life right now

So, Jim is working on 4 paragraphs about ‘life right now’.

For a very interesting project.

I thought I’d give it a shot.

I don’t think there’s a word count, so technically, I could be done right now.


Life.  Everyday I am alarmed at my alarm.  No pun intended.  It’s obnoxious.  And loud.  And nothing ‘snooze’ mode will help.

Tonight, I was bitten 4 times by my sons hamster. It hurt.  But, no, I did not fling it.


I have always loved rodents.  Hamster is lonely.  Master is gone a lot.  Mother is lonely.  Son isn’t technically around a lot.  I mean, when he IS around, it’s ‘technically’ – games and such.

Anyway, this happened.

Clearly, son did not care about the four bites I took without fling mode.

The temperature of the fish tanks was of importance.

This weekend I lost my car to a tow truck, am trying to make the best of things.

Trying not to stress out.

Life as it is right now.


I FINALLY have someone in my life and in my home that I love. (Other than my son – that’s a given, I hope it should be anyway.)

Life as it is RIGHT NOW??  Dog is anxious to go out, I’ve got YouTube on pause and wondering about dinner.

Life in general?  Is a hamster wheel.  I’m not going to lie.

It’s the same thing, day in, day out.

But, I’m grateful for the job, grateful for my family.


We did all the cleaning today since I had my car towed away – (almost rhymed no?)  so tomorrow, it will be very odd waking up to see empty dirt outside of our fence.  No cars at all.

My life today?  Was filled with worry – then silliness, and various states of undress.  Deciding it isn’t worth it to worry anymore.

Life will be what it will be.

As Doris Day would say (Yeah, met her – at Pebble Beach) “Que Sera, Sera”

I’m just along for the ride at this point – and making sure the bills are paid.  That is MY life.
