I Am Trying

Trying is my word for the day.
Because try as I might, I can't think of any other word to write about.

I am trying to be optimistic about the future.
Sometimes it works.
Sometimes it doesn't.

I am trying to get my resume written.
It is kinda hard when I can't remember employment dates.

I am trying to get my garden planted.
So far, the potatoes are in the ground.

I am trying to keep my house dusted.
But, it's a hundred year-old house in the country and two days after you dust, stuff is dusty again.

I am trying to think of more things to write.
But, I can't.

Have a good night.


  1. I think you did a great job in your trying post :)

    Its hard to get a resume together; its okay if you don't have exact dates; just try to figure out a timeline of when you worked at various places.


    1. Thank you, Betty. I tried my best. ;)

  2. As long as you have potatoes you won't starve and at least it's a start.
    Wow, a hundred-year-old house. Is that a cool thing?
    I know what you mean about having a hard time thinking of what to write. But you did it!

    1. lyndagrace, sometimes knowing your house has been around since 1913 is good. Built to last and with walnut. But, it needs a lot of work. It's my dump in progress.

  3. Try away and things will get done at your bay. Ugg, dust never goes away.

    1. Pat, is there a dust fairy or something?

  4. Walkaway for the moment, find your place in words, your head and your heart!

    1. Jeremy, This year I have just been having a tougher time writing for the Challenge.

  5. Coulda used Trump.
    Although that wouldn't be very cheery, huh?

  6. Everyday is about trying and maybe even succeeding. If we're not trying then we're in trouble.

  7. I know what you mean about dust...very infuriating. All one can do is try and that is the best thing
