Hey, Get Up!

My life is the Material
trying to overcome the Spiritual.
Key word: TRYING.

There are three types of people in this world:
the Naturally Awesome, Tryers, and Redheads.
Of course, I’m of the “Naturally Awesome” variety.

I have a lot on my mind that I can’t quite seem to get out.
I always forget something, and then it germinates.
Before I know it my mind is full again
and the process continues on an endless spin cycle.

Should I really buy more diapers?
We just got a portable washing machine on loan.
I can’t stand the thought of using so much water.
Of disposable diapers degrading in landfills
for the next five hundred years.
Of spending twenty dollars a week at the laundromat.

That felt good to get out of my system.
Now it’s your turn to figure it out.

I really should just get a compost bin.
Those things are awesome.
I want desperately to grow a garden.
I don’t even know where to begin.

Some day I’m going to run a marathon.

I’m about half done
writing my thank you notes.
They are sincere.

Please don’t let me screw things up this time!
I have a son now! I’ve got to get it right!
Put the money in the bank!
Except it’s not really my money.
Oooh, bad move… How much do you want that ring?
And this is the problem: I want too many things.

Materialism
trying to overcome
Spirituality.
TRYING.
What does that mean?
So far materialism always comes out on top.
The only way I can explain it is to say
you have to take the long view.
Materialism is winning the battles,
but the war is far from over.
Makes sense, right?
So, when is the turning point?
Why can’t it be right now?
It could be.
Depends if I’m
strong enough yet.

I can’t quite tell
if he’s hungry or what.

Never let me drink three cups of coffee before bedtime.
At least I was somewhat productive, and a cuddly mother, too.
All in all not a complete waste of the evening.

Never again with the coffee.
