Nowadays my troubles are a bit more than a messy bedroom. There are piles of research papers needing scoring and lessons to be planned. There are multiple rooms in need of a pick up, and the yard has yet to be raked. I wish I could say I enjoy gardening so I could be motivated to add some color to my front yard, but unless a gardener appears with yet one more nod to make it happen, I'm afraid I will not get to that until at least the weekend.
If I had those magical powers I would be sure to share them. Any ice cream scoop falling from a child's cone would be saved! The construction in town would be complete! Those neighbors' dogs would have their master home and they'd have no reason to bark! School would let out for the summer months as everyone would complete their homework and their final exams without any more tutoring needed!
There simply aren't any shortcuts in life. I suppose I have always known this, but that doesn't stop me from trying to pull a Jeannie every once in awhile.
