Coffee and kids don’t cancel each other out



Foolishly, I planned to do many work-writing related things in Michigan (after my cuatro hit the hay). Unfortunately, as my post title suggests, the todo list has sat largely uncrossed-out. Instead I’ve spent mornings watching squirrels discover the large bird feeder that my father stocks with hulled sunflower seeds, cleaned 22 months of life out of my car, and taken my daughters to their first evening feature length film. After all that, most I can do is check email, try to blog and say goodnight.
