NaPoWriMo #18: saturday

Playing catch-up again...


Weekend Warrior

Saturday morning and I’m trying to
shake the ache from my bones
so I’m up first
creeping downstairs in
faded fuzzy slippers and
flowered pajamas
two slices of wheat bread spread
with peanut butter, a glass of milk
while checking email
then I’m putting away
last night’s dishes, reloading our
decrepit dishwasher
and it’s off to mow grass
wash four loads of laundry
eat leftovers for lunch
sweep, wipe down, wash
another load of dishes
make dinner, put kids to bed
and squeeze in a run
if my bones ache a bit less
than when I woke.
