In response to prompt : Jiffy
I watched the twister coming closer,
It took a moment to spread disaster.
The house disappeared in a Jiffy,
And the magician yelled catastrophe!
Sally jumped cried out, ‘foul,
I never heard the twister growl.’
For a few second, Mom said nothing,
The lame cook bellowed, ‘I found something!’
What they found or lost is not the question,
It is now time for serious reflection!
Tell us your tried and true techniques for focusing when that deadline looms and you need to get work done, how do you avoid wasted days and wasted nights?
Actually I tend to leave things to be done a few days before the deadline. It’s a very stressful time for me. I am not a night person, so I depend on the daytime. I get up early and start doing the work I neglected to do all week. This means I don’t cook,don’t clean up, as far as food goes I always have leftovers and I don’t mind eating them to save time, thank God someone invented the micro wave oven,things get heated in a jiffy.
As far as cleaning goes I conveniently leave it until I complete the work to meet the deadline. I tell myself I hope no one visits me these few days, because I don’t like the label,”She is a messy housewife”.
This is how I take care of the deadline,not a great thing to do I guess, as long as the work is done and I have successfully completed it, ‘I’m as happy as a lark.”
