MONDAY MUSE * choke, shock, horror…
Yes, a Monday Muse and you might even get Tuesday Tarot tomorrow!!! What is the world coming to? It seems I have got my shit together finally; although I don’t really think I ever truly have my shit together.
There are those wonderful days when I think I have – you know those days when you look around and you have done everything on your list; the kids are sorted, partner is sorted; you can sit down for a glass of wine with a trash movie; you don’t have to share your chocolate, and all in the house is quiet.
And then it happens…. that tiny whisp of guilt. Just as you raise the glass to your lips you spy some washing to be folded… damn! Part of you wants to fold it, so you can be guilt free; the other part of you says… it can wait.
Then you dip into the chocolate box; and there is a plaintive call from the bedroom… mummmmmeeeeee! You think to yourself that a good mother would dance up the stairs, sit on the bed and sort out whatever ails your child… but then you are not a good mother; well at least I wasn’t – instead you yell up the stairs ‘unless you are bleeding, dead or dying don’t interrupt me’.
The world goes silent. You settle back to a juicy scene, rewind for a couple of seconds… yes there it is; and there is a massive roar from the garden shed. Now a good partner would jump up and run down the garden to attend to her partner.
But then you are not a good partner; and you figure that you will give it five minutes and if he is really hurt you can intercept him crawling up the garden path; or discover him face down in the shed.
You can hear some movement in the shed, he is alive, this is a good thing; now back to the wine and movie.
The dog decides it wants to play, and sits there with that pathetic ‘Im so cute, how can you resist me?’ ooops sorry that is the husband!
The cat knows what you need, and curls up on your knee and purrs – the cat can stay, until it digs it’s claws into your leg, and then it is unceremoniously shoved off the couch.
We can never as women, actually have totally ‘me time’. Because there is always someone or something that commands your attention.
I could say something revolutionary like… take time for yourselves ladies; sit down and be counted. Your partners, children are perfectly capable and independent (really?); and the dog can wait to play. I could say something cool, inspirational and motivational like.. ‘Take that time woman! Take what is yours!’
But I won’t say anything. Because we all know that it is never going to happen. The only true ‘me time’ is in a toilet, in a motel room, whilst traveling on your own and the mobile is in the bedroom.
Or in the toilet cubicle of Dressmart, or a mall – you know the end cubicle – it is usually the cleanest.
I have come to recognize in life, there is no such thing as ‘me time’; the best you can hope for is ‘me moments’, and ten minutes playing candy crush in the toilets at Sylvia Park – yes that end cubicle… it’s me.

Good morning punters, panters, flatulators, dancers, artists and generally fabulous people…
I have not done a Monday Muse for a very long time, and of course it is not Monday – it is Thursday, but really I don’t care.
‘I really don’t care’. Is an interesting statement isn’t it? It can be interpreted in so many ways…
I really don’t care …. because I am grumpy and don’t want to care
I really don’t care … about your feelings, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
I really don’t care … because you have pissed me off, and I don’t love you anymore.
I really don’t care … because you have been complaining for weeks and weeks, and you still haven’t done anything about your life.
I really don’t care … because there is nothing more I can do.
I really don’t care … because no matter what I do – it doesn’t make a difference – in politics, in love, in my work, in my life.
I really don’t care … about what I am supposed to do today because the day is so amazing, the sun is beautiful, the air is fizzing, and I have four furbabies to play with…
Make sure that when you say ‘I don’t care’ that you make it clear…
I don’t really care – in this moment, tomorrow I will be in a better mood.
I really don’t care’ – because you have pissed me off and I am waiting for an apology.
I really don’t care – because I have given you advice, let you cry on my shoulder (all over my new white linen dress) and still you have done nothing.
I really don’t care – because I have done everything, and it never seems to be enough.
I really don’t care – because I don’t realize that the smallest thing I do makes a difference.
I really don’t care .. because if I play in the sun, suck up the fresh air, play with the furbabies I will be in 7th heaven.
So my challenge for you today – after this pointless diatribe; and if you have got this far and are saying “Really Jackie? Really?” – I don’t care; the challenge is – post one thing you really don’t care about today…
I’ll start – today I don’t care about time…
Moon Mission Transmission
At the beginning of this journey you were to have some kind of intent; something you wanted to achieve.
The overall intent for us all was SUCCESS; success at something.
The energy is amazing today; state that intent out loud today.
The storms have been, the rains have cleansed, the winds have driven out the cobwebs in the corners.
What is your intention?
Moon Mission Transmission for Tuesday
Rescue something or someone today. Rescue a plant that is dying in a garden; an old lady with heavy shopping; a friend with a child who will not settle; a work colleague who cannot sort something out.
Rescue a dog, a cat and give it a home. Or sponsor a cat with a donation of food. Sponsor a child here in our country – so that he or she has books for school, a school lunch, a warm home.
Rescue plants – there are beautiful old plants that are becoming extinct. Bulbs, seeds in old people’s gardens – long neglected. Dahlias are one of them – there are some beautiful old dahlia types; roses, fruit trees. Create a seed bank.
Rescue something, someone today.
