Daily Prompt: Obstacle Course

Think of what you wanted to accomplish last week.Did you?What are the things that hold you back from doing everything you’d like to do?

I wasn’t able to work on a different theme, I could not make up my mind what would be the best, while I was thinking the time passed me by. I realized there are so many hours in a day,during these hours, I have prayers to take care of, cook food, eat , feed the felines, if there is a delay in their feeding time one of them looks me in the eye and tells me, I am forgetting my responsibility. He is very vocal about it.

The fact of the matter is there is only twenty-four hours in a day. I have to sneak in an hour for  entertainment, during this time I  watch two game shows,”Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy.”

When I subtract all the times for  my extra-curricular activities from  24 hours, I’m left with two measly hours which for me is not enough for blogging 101.

Did I forget to mention I also need to sleep or my brain will shut down? Oh my online course completely slipped my mind, this also takes some thought to answer one question out of four. I wonder how I took care of so many things when I was in school.In fact I had to answer six out of ten questions in my final exams in four hours, back then I didn’t even use up all my hours, I was able to answer six questions without any problem.

It’s not the same now, you can give me a week I’ll still  be dawdling. I think there are too many distractions these days, like my favorite tennis player Roger Federer is playing I have to watch seriously how he  is playing, I say a  little prayer for him to be successful,then there is my not so favorite one  I try to jinx him so he loses and the field is open for my favorite player, who I hope would take advantage of the situation.

All these extra activities of mine takes away time I do not have. I end up not getting my assignment done. Come to think of it. It sure is an ‘Obstacle Course.’

DP Daily Prompt: Great Expectations

Tell us about one thing (or more) that you promised yourself you’d accomplish by the end of the year. How would you feel once you do? What if you don’t?

My goal each year is to read a number of books , with that promise I buy a certain number of books, so far I have not read all the books I bought, but I still  am aiming to read the ones I have.

I read two out of six, four more have to be finished before I take a trip to the bookstore to buy more books.

I have read two if I can read two more I’d be happy and would aim to finish the rest without getting stressed out, if I’m unable, I’ll continue reading them!!
