GOOD INTENTIONS

Tonights offering was inspired by a cartoon sent to me by my sister-in-law. Actually it was part of a series of cartoons with the similar theme of the joys of aging. I don't know about you, but at my age I always have good intentions but often plans change daily, too many aches, charlie horse in the calf, no time,etc. Regardless, often times what we start to do, well, it doesn't get done or it's shorter in duration and we feel like we're faced with the inevitable "should." Sound familiar??
So on that note I give you:

OUT-VOTED
by Patty Lynn

Tomorrow I will wake to find...
The liberation of my mind...
From one thing I was gonna do.
I'm going to jog, try something new!

I've purchased all the gear and such,
I'll tip-toe out of bed, so hush.
I haven't told my hubby yet,
Be back before he wakes, you bet.

And when I'm done I'll take a shower,
Be dried and dressed in about an hour.
I think I'll do this every day.
What's that I hear, you say,"no way!"

But why, dear toes, do you object?
I haven't even started yet.
Out-voted ten to one am I
My expectations were too high.

So 'neath the covers, oh, so cozy...
I'll snuggle in 'til I am dozy...
I tried, I did...my warm bed's...good...
Tomorrow...yes...I know I should...
