Fridays Folly

As you can see the leaves are just starting to turn, we've had unusually good weather this season. . I just can't get used to it getting dark so early!

Friday was a rough day, on the phone with India for over three hours, eight different people tried to rectify my brothers wireless computer issues. Only to be hung up on 5 times, by five dudes. Seriously I don't think any of them knew how to resolve the problem so they just hung up. Of course a thick accent didn't help anything either! How many pardons can one person say anyway? Finally three women in a short progression guided me through. That and a few other kerfuffles made for a nasty morning and afternoon. A poem sums up my day!


It's surprising how a raised voice and rude attitude can affect you to the core. Thankfully a good cup of java can also be of comfort! Anticipation of being with good friends and my children was like hot chocolate for the soul. Seriously I looked old and worn this weekend. I just don't do drama well anymore!


Salvaged


I walked into a landmine

A powder keg of sorts

Stealth anger dormant

Sequestered with supports


A row ignited with a boom

Words rumbled in my midst

Unpleasant angst unfolded

Foul air did persist


Crying jag, apologies

Perception sanitized the mire

Exhaustion proceeded

Extinguishing the fire


Woes of dissension

Lingered weighty on my soul

I honked my horn fervently

Comic relief, to Spackle the hole


Giggles obscure a tear stained face

Preparing for the night to come

A goddess celebration

A Sisterhood to succumb


Love and giddy merriment

Blitzed a joyful mood

Friendship, food and wine

A day peacefully subdued

My wonderful goddess friends hamming it up!! We giggled so much! Gypsy goddess made the most scrumptious chocolate and orange icing cake that was to die for. I put in a request for my birthday!
Nature goddess inspires us with her youthful demeanor. Fit as a twenty year old she hikes all over the world. We are very lucky to have her as a part of our group! The night ended beautifully, me with a light heart void of any ugly thoughts from the day!

Sounds like a bad start to a day that ended beautifully. Your poem is great! And all your friends look as if they're having fun. I love that grey sweater the birthday girl is wearing!
