Over too Soon………..

Almost 6:00 a.m.
Time to roll out of bed
Don my coral polka dot socks, shirk on my housecoat
Do my morning ablutions, then
stump down the carpeted stairs, and
feed the (insistent) cat who greets me at the bottom of the stairs.
Make 10 cups of coffee
Turn on the computer (and the wireless mouse which has an on/off switch)
Rescue the morning paper bagged in plastic from the rain
Go back to kitchen and pour coffees ~
one with three sugars and almost half milk (mine)
the other with two sweeteners and lots of milk (as opposed to half milk)
Make way back to living room, place coffees on table and settle in my red chair
Separate front page of newspaper from the rest and give it to my husband
Continue tradition started when I was eight of reading the comics first
And as the years have gone by, turn to the obits to make sure I am still kicking
Listen to the news on TV while reading the news and sipping my first coffee of the day
Ah, early Saturday morning…………….over too soon.
