Listen to the MUSTN'TS

by Shel Silverstein (of course)

Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child,
Listen to the DON'TS
Listen to the SHOULDN'TS
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then Listen close to me-
Anything can happen, child,

I need a very big dose of optimism right now. I was wondering if anyone has seen at the pharmacy lately a bottle that said optimism? I'm hoping that with a little more optimism I can weather this up and down life just a little more.

As I mentioned a day or two ago I have been in a slump and feeling like a lump. Yes, obviously I have been reading to many poems. I keep trying to rhyme everything and I am having a good time.

We are almost done getting all the beds ready for planting. I have cheated and done a little bit of planting already. Hopefully, Mother Nature is kind and doesn't throw any freezing temperatures at us.

A neighbor said to me today that she sees me outside all the time and wonders what I am up to. I replied, "I'm not up to anything. I look outside I see the sun, I see one weed in the flower bed,I look inside see the piles of laundry and then go outside to pull the weed." Very productive!

Eventually I am going to get to plant. Then I am going to be spending a lot of time outside talking everything into growing.

Oh, and I guess I am going to ride my bike too. Again, who talked me into this? Why did I let myself get talked into this? I have plants to watch grow.

I fill the same way. Why did I ask if I could do this with you guys. I finally got on my bike for the first time in a week. I rode for 1 hour and I am glad I did it. I like riding for about 30 miles after that it is no longer fun anymore it is just a pain. I am going to do it though and so are you. I love my bike, just for two hours at a time though. WE ROCK!!!!!We are insaine though. What the hell are we thinking.
