bits and pieces of life from around the Maypole, in haiku

Planning VBS:
staff, supplies, decorations,
T-shirt logo - STRESS!

Rain, rain go away
Come again some other day
May Queen wants to play

Helicopter show
auditioning tomorrow
one part for white girl

Husband threw out back
time again for him to call

I'm following through
4 days straight without soda
I feel pretty good

Maybe I feel good
because I'm exercising
every day for week

Six pairs of short shorts
ready to be donated
Too old to pull off

deal found at Target
dollar items on clearance
treats for a quarter!

please do not forget
Monday Mission coming up
post a list of rules

find more haiku posts at Playgroups are No Place for Children and A Mommy Story

I'm with Wright. I wish I could get motivated to hit the gym. I hope your hubby's back is better soon.

Angela said...

Sorry, funniest one to me was the short shorts...only 'cause it rings a lot true with me (starting 6 years ago)

I'm a gonna try for your mission again this week. I've got to sort the detritus from me skull first.

Impressively industrious use of "actupuncturist"


I hear you on the short shorts!

Love the haikus! Congrats on exercising consistently, too. I always feel much, much more energized when I do that.

susiej said...

Yes, the exercise does help so much... and what a great, informative ku!

Great ku, and four days no soda?! Impressive... and a little inspiring as well.

Very cute haiku. I'm in charge of crafts for our VBS this year. Perhaps I'll get all my supplies if I submit them in haiku form?? Like your blog. angie

Melissa said...

I've got to lose the soda as well. Sigh...

And the VBS? I'm soooo there right now. It's the fifth circle, I believe.

Yay for exercising...I haven't done any in MONTHS. Ugh.
