The Best Laid Plans

Remember all those projects I was going to accomplish while Charles was on his trip?

Well, here we are at day 9 of his absence, and which of the projects have I completed?

A Big Fat Zero.

And do I feel bad?  Guilty??  Like a failure???


Because, what I have done while he has been gone is spend some time doing things that I really love to do.

1.  Cook
2.  Eat
3.  Read
3.  Sleep

And, I also have spent some quality time with my 20 year old son, who started his second semester of his junior year at the University of Alaska Southeast on Monday.  I had a strong temptation to walk to his classroom and take a picture of him at his desk, or give him an apple for his professor, but I restrained myself.

I did manage to clean up my bedroom and do some laundry.

I might even manage to put the laundry away this weekend.

I'll keep you posted.

Meanwhile, I have to attend to some important tasks...


  1. Hey - you cleaned your bedroom! And you spent time with Miguel! Yay!!

  2. Sometimes it is hard to get going in the winter. Everyday is a new chance to start cleaning right? At least that is what I tell myself.

  3. Everyone needs a stretch of time to reflect and renew. Enjoy it.
