If by chance you’ve taken a peek at my blog for this week
Sorry to say you have found very little, ’cause so much stuff caught me in the middle.
Hate to write all the stuff, of so many distractions, I’ve had enough!
Some are sad and some are good, but I got by the best I could.
Three days of baby sitting four precious girls who have me smitten.
Mamma Guppy had six small fry, I lost one – nearly made me cry.
Now when the girls come I must tell, instead of six only five still dwell.
Company arrived from Mississippi, thankfully Sammy made coffee.
Sister came from Chickasha, didn’t stay long then went on her way.
Three days I suffered an infected eye, made that way by a dreadful sty.
With antibiotic and hot wet rags, finally got rid of the ugly eye bags.
Had a war with an army of ants who cared not a whit about my raging rants.
I felt a bit of guilt ’bout my bullying ways, but I put an end to their living days.
Too much rain the sewer did fill, only one toilet working well.
Two toilet stools refused to flush. Company was coming – I did blush.
Ahh, the sun did shine and the ground dried out –
Swipe, swoop, swush,
Two cans of Frebreze and Lysol with a brush –
Now to the supreme test. Yes indeed, they do flush!
Is that the doorbell?
“Oh, do come in,” I say with a grin.
That kind of deceit is not really a sin!
Well done Oneta. The fighting granny.
Take care and stay well.
Hope this week the sun will shine. It’s gorgeous here.
Beautiful here also. I’m up for a great week. Well, I think so. Any improvement in your trials and tribulations? At least the weather will be mostly wonderful this month, won’t it? I assume you are still awaiting kitchen cabinets. Thanks for your comment. 😀
Still waiting. Got only the kitchen sink. Expecting some
movement this week. Hopefully.
I’ll hope with you. 😀
Thank you. Need that.
Through life’s good fortune, and malodorous climes, it’s always interesting when everything rhymes
If in life you must grumble, do it with a rhyming rumble. 😀
Kudos to you! An awesome post!!
Thanks much, Dee. You are a great encourager.
💖 God bless!
Oh my—and I only thought I’d been overwhelmed…
😀 One of visitors is here again tonight. She read my bit about the toilets and asked me if that was when she arrived. I assured her it was the truth. She laughed. She had been unaware of my stress until I sent it into cyberspace. 😀
Real life is so much better than fiction 😝
You had me smiling all the way through this. I love your sense of “cleaning”..Lysol and Febreze, that’s so me! LOL ❤
😀 Another reason to call you friend.
So, Maxine, you found me here for a comment. Thank you. 😀
What a beautiful “mess!” Isn’t life grand?😀🤣😀 Hugs for smiling through it all. 😘
😀 It was a “we’ll laugh about this someday” kind of week.
Wow what a week. There are days when I long for that kind of activity, but it’s usually pretty quiet at my house. Good for you to handle all of it with style and class and find the time to write about it. You are my hero, Oneta.
How sweet you are! Thank you. Still have an active couple of days, but they are “handle-able” with no rain back yet. 😀
A great post. You made your week resonate with image and truth. Hope the week ahead is more sunshine than showers. Peace and Love to you.
Thank you, Faye. Having some more rain but not troublesome yet. Company still here so I’m hoping!
