J: Juggling



Don't be as useless as a muggle,
A hundreds things you can juggle.

Dozens of balls to toss and keep in the air,
Doing laundry so you have something to wear.

No time to go to bed and in your pillow snuggle,
Get to that blogging, lots of comments to juggle.

Don't forget to go to work and earn money,
Living in a tent or your car isn't funny.

Being tired and stretched thin makes you lovable,
Hugs to those who can juggle and adorable.

Eat something good and exercise shouldn't be a miss.
Talk to your family and give them some a nice kiss.

There are hundreds of blogs for you to see,
Drink lots of wine, coffee or iced tee.

This blogging party is so much fun,
Even if you can't meet everyone.

How many different things to you juggle each day? What life issues are getting in your way? Your comment doesn't have to rhyme like my post. Your visit is what counts the most.

    1. You keep a lot of things going, Jeremy. You can probably dance and juggle at the same time.

  6. This sounds exactly like the writer's life. I'm trying not to miss all the poetry events this year too. Two events in one month makes you a bit of a square eyes.

  9. Writing, editing, family, blogging like a crazy person this month. Can't think of anything else. Oh, wait, there's more: laundry, dishes, grocery shopping, cleaning the entire house constantly because I have kids. Thanks for the great poem!

    1. At least my kids are older. But the month is almost half over. We'll get through it.

  10. What a great "J" topic!! I should have thought of that!

    I've been doing a lot of figurative juggling in April. So many blogs that it's been a blur. And still managing to maintain my household duties.

    I'm still juggling, but my arms and eyes are getting kind of tired.

  13. Juggling is such fun! Thanks for that.

  14. I'm learning to say NO. Keeping those balls in the air benefits others more than it does me and mine! Blogging has become a way to expand my writing boundaries, and increase my digital friendships.

    1. I could probably do an entire post on saying no. I'm going to keep that in mind.

  15. Very cute rhyme :) I think parents learn to juggle a lot LOL when raising kids :) I'm juggling less these days with no kids at home, but like the most of us juggling work, house work, spending time with hubby and the wonderful A/Z challenge!

  19. I practice juggling every day during the Challenge! Sometimes I start to feel overwhelmed, then I try to remember this is supposed to be fun! It does help to know I am not the only juggler out there! Great poem! Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

  20. I juggle two full time posts for the price of one at work!! With that I juggle being a published author, expert cat wrangler and fish keeper. All while trying to manage a chronic pain condition. Then, apparently I thought I didn't have enough to do, so I signed up for A to Z!! Having lots of fun though :)

  23. I'm retired. I've given up juggling to focus on quality napping and vacationing!

  24. These days don't have to do too much juggling. An advantage of being retired. I did try real juggling once, son-in-law tried to teach me. He's good, I stank.

  30. You're right it is so much fun! That's a great word for J. I wouldn't never of thought of that. Good one. I haven't had anyone come visit me except for one man. I hope they start coming soon. I've been hopping here and there when I get a chance, but it's probably been cuz the weather has been so great. Have a great weekend. HUGS

  31. Great poem. I just have three teenage boys, a boyfriend, 18 piano students, 21 elementary students in my theatre workshop, and 12 middle school kids in the other theatre class. Then, there's the other writing assignments and reviews to write. But, I am blogging like a trooper. Having fun with my post hosts Millie and Willie Cottonpoly!

  36. Enjoyed your poem. During the week, I juggle 8 hours of work, 1 & 1/2 hours of drive time, Various appointments and shopping excursions, an hour or two of meal preparation, my favorite TV shows, My blogs AtoZ duties, My Minion AtoZ duties, My personal AtoZ fun time, and a smidgen of daughter/son/babyruth/hubby time. It's the most fun I have exhausting myself since I was in my 20's!

  38. My day job is definitely getting in the way of my writing and my ability to accept more writing work. I can juggle pretty well but every once in a while someone tosses an extra ball...
