I Have The Power To Stop Time: Somehow, It is 5pm

It has been mildly overcast all day, so the sun hasn’t shone any brighter than it did this morning.

Which means it has looked like 10am all day.  And it has felt like 10am all day.


So how is it 5pm already?



Clock_5I have no idea what time it is.  

We have been doing school all day.  I have been cleaning all day.  We still have more school to do.  I have so much more cleaning to do.  Someone restarted the washing machine, so my laundry groove is off.  I don’t even know where to begin with the dishes, but I have one load going so far.  And somehow I only have 2 hours left of sunlight until I continue this madness into the evening.

I am tired, I am trying to figure out the purpose of life (when does this topic ever end…seriously??), I need to cook dinner…I also need to just pull up my bootstraps and go to Cost Plus and buy more forks, since we’re down to 7 (maybe 6).  The walls are dirty, the kitchen chairs are dirty, the countertops are dirty, the carpets are dirty, the kids are dirty and I have this crazy idea that I’m going to get it all done by tomorrow so we can relax a little and just do school.

Somehow it is 5pm, and it feels like my day has just begun.

Coffee, anyone?

  1. I think that what you published made a ton of sense.
    However, think on this, suppose you composed a catchier title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good, but what if you added a headline to maybe
    get people’s attention? I mean I Have The Power To Stop Time: Somehow, It is 5pm | The
    Platypus Directive is a little plain. You
    ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
    article titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.

  2. My titles in the past have been reprehensible because I didn’t know if my writing had any merit. So I didn’t put much effort in the window dressing, so to speak. But you are very correct, and I appreciate your suggestions so much. They are wonderful ideas I should put into practice 🙂
