JUST ONE OF THOSE DAYS!

The alarm went off,
I slept through it though,
I wake up with a start,
I'm late..go go go!

        My schedule is ruined,
        And a number of things,
        I rush through my bath,
        And the door bell rings.

               The routine then starts,
               The milkman & the newspaper,
               The garbage collecter,
               And finally the sweeper.

Phew! its a mess, its all out of place,
Trying my patience, its just one of those days.

I answer the door,
The milk boils over,
To get through this day,
I need a four leaf clover.

        The kitchen's a mess,
        Cause I drop an egg,
        I clean it and turn,
        And I twist my leg.

               I turn on the motor,
               And then the heater,
               Power cut's at eight,
              Things just get sweeter.

Phew! its a mess, its all out of place,
Trying my patience, its just one of those days.

Cooking then starts,
Breakfast is done,
Then on to lunch,
Thankgod, damage is none.

        My little one calls,
        I drop everything,
        Try to put her back to sleep,
        And my cell phone rings!!

               "AC service ma'am,
              Can we come today?"
               Its a week since is called,
              Cant send them away.

Phew! its a mess, its all out of place,
Trying my patience, its just one of those days.

Bath and breakfast,
For my little one,
The best time of the day!!
second to none.

       I leave her to play,
       I order some fish,
       Hope my maid's on time,
       Yeah...I wish.

               I answer a few calls,
              Sign for a courier,
              And get back to cooking,
              The more the merrier.

Phew! its a mess, its all out of place,
Trying my patience, its just one of those days.

Facebook is calling,
And so is Whats app,
Friends and family,
you cant ignore that!!

        Chicken in the oven,
        On the stove is rice and curry,
        The cylinder gets empty,
        And I am in a hurry..

                I change the cylinder,
                Order a new one,
                Maid is finally here,
                Blames the scorching sun.

Phew! its a mess, its all out of place,
Trying my patience, its just one of those days.

Lunch is done,
My little one is sleeping,
I put up legs to rest,
Maid starts housekeeping.

        AC service, Fish delivery,
        Then paying bills online,
        And door to door salesmen,
        That's just the outline.

               I hobble about, banging an elbow,
               Stubbing a toe,
               Cursing under my breath,
               I go with the flow.

Phew! its a mess, its all out of place,
Trying my patience, its just one of those days.

My little one's up,
We read and play,
A little breather,
Towards the end of the day!

        Then on to dinner,
        And clearing up toys,
        Sleep time for my little one,
        We make lots of noise.

               All doors locked,
               All tucked in bed,
               I set the alarm,
               In the clock and in my head.

Tired and weary,
My husband asks, "how was your day?",
"Nothing out of the ordinary",
"Usual", I say.

I chuckle to myself,
What do I say?,
Better get some sleep,
Tomorrow is another day :)

  3. My Day is not so hectic,
    But its very close,
    Nothing out of the ordinary,
    Ugh, the everyday chores.

    Everything remains the same
    Even after your kid grows
    I cherish every moment
    and wish time would only be a little more slow :)

    :) Nice writing preethi.. I felt as though I was running around along with you one whole day
