Tomorrow is another Day

It is blogapalooza time again. We get a topic and an hour to write about it. Here is tonight's topic:

“Write about your tomorrow. Not figuratively, literally write about anything that you hope, fear, believe, expect -- anything -- that you may experience tomorrow.”

Tomorrow is always a perfect day, I haven't yet spilled on any clothes, forgotten any appointments or been goofy in any way. Plus, I am pretty sure that the sun will come out tomorrow.

Cue the music.

I have a great day planned for tomorrow, sun or not,  which revolves around all the principal parts of me.

I will be a wife tomorrow. I will wake up next to my husband but it won't be the first time we've woken up. Being in our sensational sixties we get up at least once (more like three times) every night. Sometimes we're up at the same time and we have this silly routine of saying "HELLO?!?" to each other. We laugh and go back to sleep. I have to get up early tomorrow for my second role.

Because I will also be a Mom tomorrow. My daughter has had numerous cancellations on the clean and check appointment for her air conditioner. I am going over to her house to be there when the service zara on bikepeople are due to arrive between 10:00 and 12:00. I will have company while I am there while I enjoy my third role.

Lucky me I get to be a Grandma tomorrow as well. Zara and I will hang out, watch some quality cartoons while her parents work. Maybe we will also get to go to the park, ride bikes and play. But I'm far from done.

I will also be a friend tomorrow. My husband will take over with Z by 3. I will drive up to Naperville and meet a woman I taught with in 1976 for dinner. We get together about once a month and let each other know we still care.

Finally, I will be a quilter tomorrow. My Modern Quilters Guild meets on the 4th Thursday of each month. They are a lively group of creative women and I get to share guildmy Irish quilt for show and tell.

Around 8:00 at night I will get a Starbucks and drive on home. I have to stay awake for the drive so I arrive a bit wired. Yay, I am in the middle of an exciting mystery and I will read after watching the news.

Doesn't it sound like a great day? But what if it all doesn't work out? What if something goes wrong or people don't show up?

I can't think about that now. I will deal with it as it comes. To quote Scarlett O'Hare, "I can't think about it now. I'll think about it tomorrow for tomorrow is another day."

Cue the movie.

Having fun plans for each day makes me Sew happy!
