Those uncertainties make me nervous–I come up with worst case scenarios. Like now, for example. I got home from work this evening to say hello to Husband who also just got home from work only to turn around and walk out the door to go back to work again. I don’t think it was an emergency, but it was something important that sent him out there in the dark on the same scary road that throws rocks at windshields unexpectedly.
So now I’m sitting here with the cat on my lap and the pug at my feet breaking all of the rules about pets on the furniture while I come up with a list of things I know for certain to help deal with that nagging little feeling of terror that at a moment it can all fall apart.
And that other worry about the aliens.
So here it is, my list of ten or eleven or twelve or however many things that I know for sure on a perfectly calm Thursday night in February.
- I will always worry
- The pug, when left unattended and to his own devices, will always shit on the floor. Sometimes he will puke, but always he will shit.
- I could eat guacamole with every meal. I should have guacamole with every meal. Avocados are a vegetable. It can’t possibly be a bad choice.(No photo available because I ate all the guacamole)
- A climb to a good hilltop cures me. Every time, it cures me.
- Spring will come. Spring always comes.
- I love him. I love him. I love him.
It’s not the singing, it’s not the words, the guitar, the harmonies or the harmonica. It’s everything. Music. It’s just everything.
- One day I will have pigs, I don’t care what you say.(no photo available because I don’t have a pig. Yet.)
- If you call me I will have to call you back, because I never put the phone back on the hook, therefore I can never find the phone when you call. It’s a sick cycle that I am unable to break.(no photo available because I can’t find the damn phone. Again.)
- This cat is crazy.
- This puppy is cute.
- So is this kid.
- I am grateful every day to call this home.
- It will probably, most definitely, very likely, I mean, I’m pretty sure, almost positive everything’s gonna turn out alright in the end.
Now you know what I know, what do you know for sure? Let it fly party people, I promise it will make you feel better.
