What I’m Not Doing
Writing the super brilliant blog that I discovered today is written by my most admired colleague from the grad program I dropped out of.
Writing any poems at all.
Any housework beyond dishes, laundry, the occasional emergency vacuuming, and swishing out the toilet bowl when the kids point out that it looks icky.
What I’m Doing
Inviting lots of friends & family over for dinner, then letting them do most of the work.
Finally trellising up the tomato plants, now that they’re a three-foot-high tangle.
In the sleepy hour before bed, getting addicted to Glee and knitting a shawl.
Being patient and playful when I’m tempted to be grumpy and mean.
Enjoying my daughters.
