March drabbles - 23

Too much to do, Jess takes children to school, shops for food, runs the dishwasher, rescues a spoon from the clattering disposal and collapses at last in a heap.

No collapsing allowed, Jess shifts washing to dryer, reloads the machine, cleans the floor, sweeps the leftovers stored from the kids scattered meals, tattered heels, and then tries to relax.

No relaxing allowed, Jess dreams coffee and fun and looks out at the sun—cut the grass, aching back but hurray the hot job’s quickly done.

Sunlight and grass-seed and vitamin D… a coffee reward for succeeding, plus children for fun.
