Three word Wednesday

Friday Jan23, 2009

Caress
Jagged
Ruthless

I thought I might capture the last five days with three word Wednesday!


Day one

Ruthless taxman badgers

Zero balance staves off threats

Exhale

Day two

Family Birthday Celebration

Console, caress the heart of a daughter

Whose mom died four days before Christmas

Smooth the jagged edge of another

Plagued with emotional fiscal conundrum

Day three

Dinner date with brother

Reminiscent, stimulating conversation

converges into a web of ponderous thought

Married with intermittent sleep, hot flashes,

early trek to the airport coffee in tow on Day four

followed by a ritual Denny’s breakfast with Son-in-law

the wee hours before dawn

errands bleed into sunrise

A short nap interrupted by feverish hormonal moment

Lovely lunch out with a friend, laughter,

Blissful chatter, more laughter,

Crispy winter sun beams on the day

Exhaustion beckons a third attempt at rem,

Three hours of slumber tick generously by,

awakened by an evening alarm

More errands, snow warnings, dinner, short conversation

Fourth attempt at sleep, hot flash alert, awakened to snow

Day five

Chores, a few conversations, prepare dinner, relax

Back to the airport Tuesday evening coffee in tow

Chatter, fall asleep on the couch, awaken …HOT AGAIN

Frustrated by a creative block and depleted energy

Succumb to rest…..

artistic way to catch us up on your last 5 days! hate to hear the mental pause is cracking down on u again. but the laughter throughout makes me know that you can handle anything that comes your way.

hopefully you've been able to sleep since then and feel much better!
I miss u!

Emotional week Sherrie. I'm having my hormone levels checked and will work on getting them in normal ranges. I refuse to suffer peri-menopause any longer. Rest sweetie! HUGS

I tend to do the same thing when I'm stressed, but mine comes out in compulsive reading! Hours and hours of reading. Guess what I've been doing!?

Giggles,
I wish you MUCH rest, MUCH deep sleep. Those hot flashes, I've heard, are a &*&^!!#!,
Whew! Even if you weren't lacking sleep, your interesting description of these days where you also very creatively wove in "3 WW", gave me a workout!

Thank you for your kind words about my collage. Thanks to you, I fixed it to post the one you liked, which was the version I meant to post! you commented.
