Silly Haiku Wednesday: Freestyle

Join the fun!
For more Haiku hijinks, 
please visit Jen over at You Know…That Blog?

24 Hours

Awake! Arise! Yawn!
Get dressed and go walk the dog.
Scoop that stinky poop.

Grab a coffee cup.
Mr. left pot halfway full.
Gotta love that man!

Turn on the PC.
Check email and other blogs.
Reply and hit send.

What to blog about?
Blogger's block freezes my brain.
Needing fresh ideas.

Blog friends to rescue!
Great suggestions run amuck.
Which ones should I choose?

Time to school my son.
Grammar, Spelling, Science and Math.
We skip History.

Check the blogs I follow.
Comment, then comment some more.
Very addictive!

It's time for lunch.
Left over BBQ planned.
Finger lickin' good.

I'm back reading blogs.
So many blogs to check out
And so little time.

Tear myself away?
I really need to clean house.
Please? Just one more blog.

Button was promised.
Kind of tough to figure out.
I learned something new!

Free time! Clean kitchen.
Dirty dishes in the sink,
Crumbs on the counter.

Then there's that dog hair!
Sweep, sweep, sweep, sweep then vacuum.
There's no time to mop!

Carpool duties call.
Off to pick up Bethany.
No bus for charters.

Sudden nap attack!
I will attempt one hour snooze.
That felt really good.

Carpool time again?
Bethany to rehearsal.
Sing, sing, sing your songs!

While she's at practice
I make weekly Costco run.
Daisy needs dog food.

Return home past dark.
The boys fended for themselves.
Leftover Pizza!

Pour a glass of wine.
Watch American Idol.
Then off to slumber.

Mister Sister up
At ungodly hour of 4!
Awake! Arise! Yawn.

A big thank you to my blogging friends who suggested more randomness. I don't think I could have been any more random than penning a day in the life of The 5th Sister in haiku!

The 5th Sister

Will Christine of Mommy Madness, ChristineM of Marvelously Mundane, and Nicole from Tattoos and Teething Rings please take the button above (that I worked so hard on) as my thank you for your help?

Man, you are officially a Haiku junkie and I LOVE it!

Did you say button? I'd love to snag it to add you to my new blogroll. Let me know if you need some help. There's a button tutorial at my Blogger DIY page:

Chanda the Eco-Cheap Mom said...

Now that's some haiku and quite a day to boot! You're lucky you get to take a nap!

Great button! Can I grab it too?

ChristineM said...

You are the Haiku Queen! Love it! And thank you for the thank you! And as, always, thanks for stopping by ;)

AMEN to what you said in the comment to me! I had that exact argument with a woman the other day. According to her, everything is the teacher's fault... they give to much homework, they expect too much, they want the children to learn too many facts and information, blah, blah, blah. I told her in no uncertain terms that teachers are overworked, underpaid and they are held to required POLITICS (set up by a bunch of idiots who have no clue about kids or how to teach them) or they will won't get pay increases, or worst, they will get fired.

My husband and daughter both summed it up well. My husband said "I no longer teacher history, I can't, I am not allowed, I simply make my students memorize names and dates to score high on the EOG tests." And my daughter, when asked "well, what exactly did you learn in high school" said, "learn? as in understand and know? Not a damn thing, but I can take and score high on a test like nobody's business." That is sad, isn't it.

Poly, what a busy day! I wish I could get the half done.Love your "free style" Haiku.You really have a way with words.So witty you are!
Have a great day!
huge hugs

Lee said...

I love your haiku day!!

No Longer 25 said...

This is so cool - I wonder after that many haikus have you got the counting down or are you still using your fingers?

I love a costco run but it usually turns out to be an expensive trip, those baked goods are too tempting and freeze well.

It sounds like a busy day for you - I also have the blogging addiction, just one more post to read then I'll get back to work - honest!

Christine said...

That's one heck of a day!!! I'm tired from just reading it. Thank YOU so much for that very cool button. I am going to post it on my blog. Buttons are always fun bling. Glad you have broken through the's so hard sometimes!

Kimberly said...

I love your haiku. It is very imaginative.

You are one of my daily visits.

Can't wait to see your break through blog work!

Life Laugh Latte said...

Great job on both the Haiku and the button. Look at you miss blogerific...creating your own buttons and all! Amazing:) Very clever too. Love hearing that your day isn't so different than mine. Holly

Unknown said...

This haiku of your day has left me totally exhausted. How do you do it all?!?!!?

And how does Mr. get up that early?!?! omg.

Love the part about wine and American Idol. LOL!

Anonymous said...

Well done! How come your update didn't populate in my follower box until just now (4:56 pm CST)????

Willoughby said...

I bow to the Haiku Queen!

MJ said...

i don't know whether to stand and applaud you or go lay down and take a nap ;o)

Well done dear, what a fun way to learn more about you and your day!

Ria said...

That's an epic haiku!

Amanda Moore said...

This was such a great idea, the work you put into it gets kudos, and more kudos!

Tracie said...

You sound like me - sneaking in one more blog.

stephanie said...

I love the Haiku!!

Weezer said...

You're amazing. You know that? I've missed you and your writings. Even in your bloggers block you still amuse and entertain.

Anonymous said...

Boy you are the Haiku Queen of all time. I love this and well done :)

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

WOW! Did you go all out for this one or what?!! Very nicely done, Sister!!

We broke a record yesterday (I think maybe you did too! haha) with 3 more people than we've ever had before, and some regulars weren't even there! How awesome is that???

Corrie Howe said...

I loved spending a day in your life through Haiku. I think so many parts of our days collide.

gayle said...
