Cleaning House,? OH! That Kind Of Cleaning House! By @Aerobabe619

Cleaning house for some is the typical sweeping moping dusting.But in my home,there are two types of cleaning.When the home needs to be cleaned you will hear me say ” Hand me the bucket,bags and broom” The family knows it’s time to make the house livable.If you hear me say “Cleaning House!” With a tone,you better pray.I have come to a point were life has become to complicated.My dad always said “Life is as complicated as you make it”.

The last couple of months have been a virtual juggling act,family traveling between many states,my granddaughter living with me for twenty days her Paw-Paw for five,other family for two days here,two days there.Now she is back to regular life,and her mom wonders with real shock,”Why is she not sleeping,eating,whatever on schedule?” WHAT? I look at her with complete shock,she has to be kidding!

I told her,when life goes upside down,you have to get a grip before it runs away like an off track locomotive. With that said,I started looking at mine.Desk looks like a bomb went off,There are two major things hanging in the air,that need to get done! So I can close two heartbreaking doors.One is just waiting now for the date to come up,get through it and move on.The other is waiting on the weather! My parents headstone.Its finished but,don’t you know two weeks of down pouring rain,has held things up.It most likely will be put in place on my birthday….happy birthday…ugh.There is
nothing I can do but wait.

Then personal relationships and those that are not.Social media sites,people who have not said two words to me.Im not a numbers person.If I have ten friends that really talk to me,then I’m happy with that.But the worse is relationships that are hurting you.Not necessarly physical,but there are other types of pain.Then it’s time to Clean House.! People,things or not running your life in healthy ways.Time to get the broom and clean up the mess.

Sometimes,it is eating or lack of taking good care of yourself.Get together a chart and make a realistic goal chart.Clean up your finances,a lot of money goes down the drain,on ATM fees.I check my Finances on a secure online bank site.Write down your starting monthly balance,don’t forget to subtract fees for phone pay,that is if you pay bills by phone there is a charge.Any fees from ATM,Check fees and overdraft fees,they all add up.Clean House! You will have more money in your pocket and breathe at night!

There are many areas of our life,if we clean house,you will be able to find peace and happiness in the end.Its somewhere underneath all the unneeded things,or undone projects.Not worn,used,played with,talked to or healthy objects,people,feelings.

CLEAN HOUSE and SMILE!

My Last Post (Closing Time For Blogging) By @ Aerobabe619

I have written since about age nine.Sometimes short stories,long dramatic stories,poetry,plays,jingles.I even tried my hand at some television shows.I would get my sister and cousins some times friends and we would tape.Now at this time all I had been was a cassette recorder,so it was all audio.I found a few not to long ago and they were so bad they are hilarious.Especially my broadcasting a football game in a really bad Howard Coeell voice.

I have also written songs,and for a father’s day gift taped with my girls songs from Garth Brooks in Central Park VHS. Oh we are bad,three cats with tails caught,singing away.But we had an absolute fantastic time doing it. I have always enjoyed writing and entertaining my family. My dads 60th birthday I had my daughters at that time ages eleven and six learn the words to Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and My Guy.We did a skit of my dad and sang these songs.The girls have grown up to be artistic in many ways,winning awards.Wonderful singers ,they can play musical instruments and as great at teaching my granddaughter how to be into th arts.

But with all this under my belt,the hardest,most gut wrenching writing has been blogging.I started blogging in 2006 as a therapeutic way to deal with my dads death. It was a site called “BlogStream” a very laid back ,early form of a blog community.The backgrounds were few and fonts,etc very rudimentary. But in the beginning the community was wonderful.Very little competitive attitude.We backed each others work.

Eventually it became an advertising spot,or people selling their goods,and Three years later, I decided my journey was over. But I learned and moved on with different interests.Sooner or later the urge to write again started biting and I joined Poetry,com a wonderful site,you write a poem,people judge it ,to publish your poem,you have to judge two.’ I wrote enough to make my Masters badge.

The last three years I have blogged under WordPress.I have met some wonderful people and made friends all over the world.Its time however to focus on other areas of my life and challenge myself.

I wish all the bloggers,authors,poets and writers much success.Thank you for the experience,a lot has been learned.

The Emotion Is You,The Laughter Is Drum Rolls. (Poem) By @ Aerobabe619

Image

Listen,listen to the sound.

it is all around me,I didn’t recognize it.

What can it be?.

Its been such a long time.

Then I realize it’s mine.

The laughter is real, I didn’t think I could feel.

My smiles are just from the thought.

And the cement crumbles,The laughter sounds like drum rolls.

The newest emotions,Eyes sparkle green.

I look through eyes that have cried away dreams.

Now I have the hope,and to think I can cope,

No old habits start,you jumped started my heart.

Every Song has new meaning,every look at the ceiling,

Is no longer of pain,or tears with a constant remain.

Looking at that cracked ceiling,now building life.

It hasn’t been easy,my trust you had to earn.

Searching over every word.

Like a musician starts to learn,playing a new song.

I’m ready to ride along.

And in the end.

Even more my friend,who ever would know.

That the person would be you.

Friends for thirty years.

Shared laughter,family,fears.

Play your music,cause each song  is new.

And the emotion is you.
