Focus Friday

Once upon a time
I wrote lists.
Once upon a time
I accomplished what
was on those lists.
Once upon a time
my home smelled wonderful,
dust bunnies weren't housing in every corner,
under every couch and cushion.
Once upon a time...
my kids didn't have a mom,
they had a maid.

Today I plan to focus.

... on my kids.
It has been a long, long week
with too much running.
1. go to school
2. take a test
3. come home
4. grab kids and head to Grandpa's house
5. play with kids
6. pick up nieces
7. play with nieces
8. bring kids and nieces home
9. eat junkfood for dinner
10. kids crash, mom crashes harder
11. sleep in

How's that for focused?

Good list!

I never make lists, they never get done!

A clean house only lasts for minutes, but memories last a lifetime...

Have a great sleepin' in!

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
