My Life

I laugh when I shouldn’t.
I trip on air.
I’m hungry at midnight.
I eat dessert for dinner.
I eat toast every morning.
I watch scary movies.
Then I have nightmares.
I never forget yesterday.
I forget two minutes ago.
I love to clean.
Then I mess it up.
I’m a hard worker.
I love down time.
I can’t cry much anymore.
No one's fault.
My Life.

Is there something we should know about you?

  3. We are very similiar. Good thing is I forget my dreams as soon as I wake.

    I don't eat toast every morning and I don't like to clean but I like things clean.

  4. I need to laugh more.
    I hate air travel.
    I’m hungry at all hours.
    I eat cactus for dinner.
    I drink coffee every morning.
    I don't watch scary movies.
    But I still have nightmares.
    I try to forget yesterday.
    But forget two minutes ago instead.
    I love to clean.
    Then my husband messes it up.
    I’m a hard worker.
    I love alone time.
    I wish I didn't cry much anymore.
    It's my fault.
    Because it's my Life.

  5. hahaha yeah, I trip on air too sometimes. Maybe there is something there very concrete that we don't recognize with our five sense.

  8. I trip over air.
    I don't like to clean, but I do like to put things away.
    Clutter and messes make me crazy.
    I'm always hungry.
    I love fun surprises and new experiences.
    I'm a hard worker.
    I need Me Time every day.
    I cry easily, happy and sad tears.

  17. I had to laugh when I read one of the posters comment about cleaning and then her hubby messes it up. I can so relate to that one! Enjoyed your list...some of those would be on mine.

  18. I loved that! Visiting from Cheryl's place. My husband will like that "I trip on air"........I'm extremely clumsy and he said I "trip over the pattern in the carpet!"

  19. What you've written is kind of about me...except I eat an organic toaster pastry and a piece of lowfat cheese every morning. :D

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, Teresa.

  20. That's life, alright! Not much use in crying; it only messes up your makeup and stops you from moving on. As to cleaning . . . I do it, but I really don't like the process. I'd rather be outside mucking around in the dirt.

    Loved the poem.

  22. Much of this applies to me except on week-ends I have biscuits instead of toast and sometimes bagels instead of toast. I don't like cleaning that much, but sometimes when I start doing it I can really get into it.
