Six Word Saturday

Take a lesson from Robert Frost . . .

. . . who didn't need six words:  "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on."

I intentionally took a few days off during the holidays with good intentions for getting back to regular blogging after January 1.  Well, we all know where good intentions lead . . .

We've had a couple of family crises, one delayed family Christmas, two college students enrolling in three colleges, and a neurotic dog filling our time but things seem to be back on an even keel - although I'm firm in my cynical belief that life is what happens while you're waiting for the other shoe to drop - so I'm spending my weekend cleaning house, reading, catching up with what's waiting on the DVR and in my reader, and blogging.  But there's always the possibility that life will carry me away again, because:

"Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out". - Anton Chekhov

Want to play along? All that's necessary to participate is to describe your life (or something in it) in exactly six words.
Then visit Cate at Show My Face to link up with other participants.


  1. not sure i know who that is, but will look it up. have a great weekend.

  2. Uncle Bob was a wise man. Once, on a cross country trip, we stopped to chat as the first downy flakes of an early snow fell but, since we weren't sure who owned the woods where our sleigh had stopped, we didn't linger. We took off, but ended up getting pretty lost, having taken a left when the two paths diverged, leaving us miles from the village, listening to our horse's harness bells, & still having miles to go before we could get any shut-eye.

  3. Tami, Robert Frost had it right. Right on!
    Your crises sound like challenges and opportunities to me. Goodness, three college enrollments. I wish those students well! :)
    Now the neurotic dog is something else. Is it 'Big Red' who at the nativity set? We too bought a new nativity set this year for our two and a half year old granddaughter, KP. It was Fisher Pice and just made for children to play with the pieces.
    Hapy 6WS!

  4. Here's my 6 words: Learning to laugh again with Hubby. That's my life right now.

  5. My 6 words:

    "I feel a change coming on."

  6. I really relate to the Chekhov quote.

    Hope your issues are resolved.

  7. Wow … sounds like you are having quite the time. The quote is the best though.
