Brief mental escape

Feeling complete stoned tonight... long day at work, not to mention long week as well... didn't get home until almost 8pm, so no time to cook dinner - we drove through Hungry Jacks to grab a couple of Bacon Deluxe burgers (I am such a bad wife!)

The whole trip home, my brain was in 'hibernate' mode... I was basically staring into open space in a blank the whole time.

Then for a brief moment, an image flicked across my mind - me on my red bicycle, brothers on theirs, cycling up and down the lorong outside our house... a couple of neighbourhood kids running up to join us... my little 'Snowball' at my heels happily sniffing around...

It was a clear mental snapshot - no idea why it suddenly appeared in my mind. Maybe for a moment I was feeling so miserable about all the endless responsibilities, workload, burdens (not that I'm doing that great in juggling them all) that I tried to escape just for a moment, if only my memories.

But less than a split second later, I was back where I was... with the numerous tasks and responsibilities crowding in once again...

  1. don't try to be a 'super wife'or you'll burn yourself out. marriage is a shared responsiblity. Burger = bad wife ? Crap !!
