V.J.’s Weekly Challenge

https://onewomansquest.org/2021/02/08/vjs-weekly-challenge-urge/

I have had so much going on lately that I have had the urge to give up on my pastimes, my hobbies, the things I enjoy. I think it is my body’s and mind’s reaction to stress. Sort of a depressive state. I realized tonight that I won’t ever really live in my home again. I am moving on…not necessarily my choice but something I must do. I know I have so much to be thankful for, that I feel guilty feeling so down. I often wonder if people feel the way that I do; like my life is always in some sort of limbo. I mean, does life ever feel comfortable, like there isn’t anything that has to get done?

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #91: transported

We Win!

If I could be transported 

To any time or place 

I’d go back to the first day 

I got to see your face.  

I remember it so clearly 

Even though you turned away 

You didn’t really know 

You’d meet me on that day.  

We’ve always stayed together 

Through thickness and through thin 

We get along so perfectly 

It’s like we always win!

VJ’s Weekly Challenge: regulars

When I think of regulars I think of Charlie. If anyone is reading this that worked with me at the restaurant I believe you are smiling right now. I will never forget Charlie. Genuinely nice. I remember one year I asked him to come to Christmas Eve dinner at my house. He was alone and I loved having an open door for Christmas Eve. He never did come. I don’t think Charlie is here with us anymore. RIP Charlie.

I can list so many other regulars that have been in my life. The guy on Saturday mornings that came for a cup of coffee and always left 25 cents for the tip. The couples who would order the same thing every time. Now I am a regular at two places, one for breakfast, one for lunch and dinner. I do order almost the same thing every time. What is it with the regulars?
