Should Woulda…Um, maybe

14 Feb

As I read the Daily Prompt: Should Woulda Coulda    Tell us about something you know you should do . . . but don’t   I thought…What I should be doing right now is lying next to my husband in our bed, especially since it’s already Valentine’s Day, my time. But what am I doing instead, writing. I didn’t get to write earlier today because I was out and about trying to do the “get a job” “go to work” kind of thing. Hopefully, this will pan out and I’ll be making some money soon (we sure could use it, with appliances breaking, and the car malfunctioning).

couldaAfter my husband fell asleep I got up, threw my hoodie on, it’s cold in the dining room/my study and clicked the mouse and WA LA! I checked my email, and FB, and whoa!!! I had a comment to approve YAY!!! ME!!!! (As I type this there are still several emails I need to check ;(, but haven’t yet.)

Thing is, I’ve been sick for the past week, and as I type this I realize I’m running a fever again, and I was just starting to feel better. UGH! GRRR! I was supposed to go visit my daughter and grandson around lunchtime tomorrow, he’ll be 7 mths old on Friday :), but if I’m running a fever again then that means I am once again contagious, not sure I wouldn’t still be even without the fever, but I’m not taking any chances, that little boy hasn’t been sick at all yet, other than some allergies and colic. As much as I miss his sweet face, what I do NOT want is to make him sick.

writer at workOh there are so many things that I should be doing, like washing my dishes, organizing the clothes in the guest bedroom, cleaning my own room… However, I did organize and clean my closet out the other day. I’m one of those creative clutter kind of people. No, my house isn’t dirty, but I do have little spots that are cluttered, yet I know where everything is. For example, I really should keep my desk more organized, but it’s not. There are pens in the glass container, point for me, but there are papers all over my desk, point taken from me. There are things shoved in the drawers and not organized at all, and I really need to get on that, but UM…maybe when I feel better.


I will, I doAnd I really should spend more time with my friends, but it’s been all I can do lately to spend time with family. There’s always something going on, like trying to get a job, trying to fix the car, trying to fix appliances, seeing the grandbaby WHEW! makes me tired just thinking about all the stuff I have going on and then to pile the other things I need to be doing on top of that pile… Maybe I ought to, I really should, if only I woulda…Um maybe it’s just time for me to go crawl back in the bed with my wonderful husband and curl up next to him and go to sleep and worry about all of this stuff tomorrow. Maybe I’ll feel better in the morning. OH, wait, it is morning. Well, maybe I’ll feel better later on in the morning. No, actually I will feel better in the morning. I can and will get over this cold/flu thing. And, most of all, I am going to go crawl back in the bed with my wonderful husband and cuddle up to him (and get warm–my feet and hands are freezing).
