TENDING TO EVERYTHING SORT OF

What doesn’t need tending?Β 

Dogs and people. Plants and cleaning. Bills. Order, Re-orders. Writing. Reading. Writing about reading. Reading about writing. Reading everybody else’s stuff, but trying to find the typos in mine.

Reading a book during the day for a competition, but reading another one at night, because it’s beautiful and it deserves my attention. Not tending to the one I was reading before the next one I just started reading, but stopping the reading I’m doing because I want to listen to a little of that other, sillier book.

I am tending to everything and trying to figure out if Duke is injured or just playing with me, so I made a date with the vet tomorrow afternoon. I should be calling the guy fixing our car to find out when it will be ready. I’m sure I should be doing something else too, but I don’t remember what.

I’m tending to me, tending to him, tending to them and I think I need to go to the bathroom. I will tend to that very soon.

  7. The origin of ‘tend’ was to stretch, I think (if my ancient Latin and Greek are correct), like in ‘extend’–and it’s the same root as ‘tender’ and ‘tendency’. I hope all your tasks do not exceed the extent of your patience or ability!

    • I’ll just give up on something. When it gets ridiculous — like now — I just stop doing something. In this case, probably trying to read everyone else’s posts. There are only so many hours in a day, extended or otherwise πŸ™‚
