Every day I tell myself there’s work that I must do,
but I go to one of my social sites and my mind goes all askew.
There are messages and comments I really must address,
but please note I’m not organized, my files are a mess.
Family and friends are a priority; I pray they’ll understand,
however, dump me when they seem ignored, owed a reprimand?
It’s no one’s’ fault but my own, it’s all so fascinating,
nevertheless, I can’t do it all and may deserve a berating.
My intentions are always good you see, but Wonder Woman I’m not.
Nevertheless cutting back has been useless, curiosity is my lot.
Forgive me if I’m not speedy, good manners were taught in my home,
except they never dealt with all of the embellishments aiming at my dome.
You see I’m the generation who had to dial the telephone, my cell I do abhor.
I have come to realize you can get anything you need without using the door.
Unless you like fresh air, lunch out with a friend and gardens in full bloom,
life could get dreadfully boring, depending on a machine might bring doom.
So I’m telling my computer, that we’ve gotten way to close, I want to see a show.
It is a valuable resource, incredibly useful no doubt, bar the fact it doesn’t hug,
However, it’s been an amazing journey to meet people all over the universe.
It’s opened my eyes to much information, so don’t allow this to seem terse.
There’s an amazing world in this machine, it saves more time that lost,
excluding the time I should be cleaning the house, but I don’t mind that cost.
I’ve decided not to worry about the things I can’t control, that’s life;
when I say I want a cleaning person for Christmas, it would rid me of this strife

I've been having some health issues, so forgive me if I'm not fast. I'll be away for awhile, I need surgery and then I'll recuperate by the ocean. Next week, if anybody reads this.|
I'm not looking for a relationship. I'm married and have a son who just got married.
My favorite thing is helping people further their career in the arts.
