f is for forlorn #AToZChallenge


I wasn’t sure what to choose as my word for the 6th letter of the alphabet so I selected forlorn, having a sense of hopelessness or futility, being pointless.

Like cleaning up the family room and then watching in total despair as the mini tornadoes once again rearrange the space into a complete shambles, all within 5 minutes of the hard work you’ve put into cleaning, uncluttering and putting away the toys which they use to amuse themselves with on a daily basis.

Sure, it’s a necessary act but sometimes I ask myself, what’s the point, they’re just going to mess it up again anyway.

but then, life is comprised of such events that happen on a daily basis, even multiple events that happen multiple times over a span of multiple days. Sure, that probably didn’t make much sense but since this is an entry about pointless futility, it really doesn’t have to.

    It must have had something to do with the letter F! I couldn’t think of what word to use or what to write about either. But I got through it, just like you did. 😀

  2. OH I so do not miss the days of the littlest ones! Though my husband cand o the same thing, it takes me three minutes longer though!

    Forlorn is a pretty fantastic word and I must admit I feel that way often. I remind myself this is temporary and I will, maybe, miss their messes – one day.
