Life in Haiku

Alarm goes off, yawn
Headless chicken, that is me
Crazy rush - still late

I sit at my desk
Wandering the web like mad
Still so very bored

To work at what makes
Us happy, lucky are the
Few who manage it

Want to edit books
Or even better, write them
Dreams die over time

My husband on nights
10 minutes is all I get
While I am on days

The hypocrisy
Trainer's dog barks at the door
Won't you please shut up?

More hypocrisy
Trainer's dog craps on the floor
Send him to the farm

Numbers on the scale
Disgust and demoralize
Give me the ice cream

Landscaping, windows
Paint, floors, bathroom remodel
Home improvement dreams

They say money can't
Buy happiness; my response?
What total bullshit

I don't ask for much
New books, the beach, time alone
Must go play lotto

Come live near me and
Be my friend, or at least a
Cheap babysitter

Piles of laundry
Sit silent yet accusing
Please God, send a maid

Must give credit to
The man who blogs over here
Spread the haiku love

Good Thing They Aren't This Cute All The Time

Kays: Mom, why does JT have to do everything I do? I don't want him to follow me around and copy me all the time.

Me: Honey, people only imitate others when they think that person is the best. JT wants to be just like you because he thinks you're the awesomest.

Kays (pure wonder in her voice): JT, is that true? Do you really think I'm awesome?

JT (big grin): Kays, you are the bestest awesomest!

Kays (big eyed and amazed): Ooooooh! {Gets up and runs around the table, kisses her brother on the cheek}

JT: I love you Kays.

Kays: I love you too! {Gives him another kiss and a huge, neck-strangling hug}

Me: {heart melts}

Kays (to me): I gave him two kisses because he loves me and I love him and I am an angel.

JT: I am an angel too!

Me: {heart drips onto floor}

Kays: JT, quit copying me!

Me: {heart reforms rather quickly} {sigh}
