My attempt at humor. Maybe I should stick to serious. Thank you, my sweet friend Chad, for giving me the inspiration to branch out into different avenues. Hope someone gets a smile out of this one. :)

Wake up every mornin'
Can't get outta bed
Guess I should be thankful
I didn't wake up dead
Joints hurt when I move
Guess I'm gettin old
Can be one hundred degrees
And I'm still cold
I stumble outta bed to
the coffee pot
Spill a little on my hand
Dang! Thats hot!
Where is my teeth
Can't find my clothes
Where my cup of coffee went
No body knows

Can't find my cigarettes
Need to go pee
Lifes hard on and old man
Like me
Chase the dog threw the house
He's chewin on my shoe
Where the other one is
I don't have a clue
Trip over a chair and
Fall to the floor
Hit my head on that
damn old door
One blue sock on and
One sock red
Maybe I'll just go
Back to bed!

This is a fantastic write Linda! You have not lost your touch to make me laugh. unfortunately though with this poem you are describing me to a tee! You have either been talking to the other half or you just remember the way I have been on the mornings when we catch eachother online and talk...Love the poem and love you too my dear friend.
