Life is to Short to Stress Out!

If I had a routine, my house might be clean;
The fridge would be neat, full of good things to eat,
But that's not the reality that is me.
I leave things to chance, fly by the seat of my pants.

I won't let myself stress if my house is a mess.
On the couch I'll recline with my vodka and lime,
Watch a Celtics game, (I know the players by name),,
Glad though I didn't get wealth, I do have my health!

Life is to short to stress out a lot
About things that matter so little;
No need to slave all the way to your grave,
More important to savor each day's unique flavor!

An original poem by Eva Gallant

Good poem. Good advice. Have you managed to achieve this? I have a loooong way to go. It doesn't help that Mrs. C. Is a stress builder.

Totally on target!! Someone commented about how passionately I fight for certain things and my dear husband said he wished I had that kind of passion for a clean house. I told him to not hold his breath. Actually my house is clean, just not neat.

Love your blog - it's always good for a laugh - though I mostly just lurk. :)

We really ought to have had you judge our rap battle instead of Yung Skreezy. Cheers!
