Things you always wanted to say but were afraid

Determination wins out everytime

After my horrible yesterday, I decided to approach things differently today.  I made a list.  Get up with the Mr. Make his coffee and sit with him.  Do some housekeeping chores and call all those people I have been putting off – bank, doctor, dentist, etc.  And so my day started at 7 am with a song in my heart, and it should have stayed there.  I cranked up the music – sometimes gospel, sometimes country, sometimes rock.  I sang my little ole heart out.  I got the Mr. in a pretty good mood at which point he began telling me things he needed to do.  Right now he cannot do those things, so in addition to my list I became what he refers to as a “Swamper”.  Now, I have asked him before what is a swamper, and he has told me that it is a person that goes and does for a boss or someone higher up than he is.  I asked him why they called it swamper and that he did not know.  Anyway, today I was called and was the swamper.  I took a medicine cabinet off the bathroom wall (we are getting ready to paint).  I put cages and plastic wrap around all 8 tomato plants.  I fed the pony (Flash) and even walked his hay to the barn so he wouldn’t have to get wet to eat. (It had been raining.)  I got all my chores done and all of the Mr.’s as well.  The only drawback to doing the Mr.’s chores is that he like to supervise, and if I don’t get it right with minimal instructions he begins to growl like a bear.  Loretta Lynn used to say her husband, Do, growled like an “ole bar”.

Anyway at the end of the day, this is what I saw.  And the Mr. is snoring away.  Enjoy everyday.
