Packing Light?

We were packing for a trip
And needed to save space
My hubby and I decided
That we would share a case…
I’m not known for packing light
I do pack lots of stuff!
But, I like to be prepared…
Too much is never “enough”.
So, my hubby had a question
After he surveyed our case
“Is that all you’re taking?!” 
With a shocked look on his face 😮
I had a quiet chuckle then
But didn’t tell him why…
You see, I left all that space
For the “stuff” I planned to buy 😉
 
 

Finding My Car 🚗

I’m always at the local mall
I can walk, it’s not that far
Although – to be quite honest
I often take the car.
Because of that annoying
Autopilot brain of mine*
Forgetting where I have parked
Happens all the time!
So I’ve devised a system
It’s kind of a little game…
(While I find it amusing
My kids just think it’s lame).
I take the letter of the Level
And the number of the Row
Then I turn it into a word
That I’ll recall, you know.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
If park on Level F
Somewhere in Row 1
Perhaps my retail outing
Will be lots of fun.
But if I’m on Level C
In Row number 4
When I get home, I may need
To exercise my core.
My odd little system makes
Finding the car a breeze
Now I need a simple way
To find my flamin’ keys!
I had another verse in mind
About a D6 parking spot…
But my hubby shook his head
“Perhaps you’d better not”.

Declutter – Junk Mail

Now that the New Year has hit
You may have heard me mutter
“Just look around at all this stuff
It’s time (again) to declutter”.
Good stuff goes to the op shop
Broken stuff into the bin
And, perhaps, I should cut down
On the stuff that’s coming in
That paper pile on the bench?
It grows without a thought
Till I can’t stand it any more
And through it, I must sort.
I bought this sign months ago
It’ll go out front, one day
My family don’t believe me
“That’s what you always say”.
Catalogues in the mailbox
Surely I can do without…?
But, you see, sometimes
I just don’t want to miss out!
Can’t resist a bargain 🍾😀
