this day.

February 10, 2011

let’s just see what’s checked off at the end of the day.

some of these things will absolutely get done
cut elsie’s nails – could easily be followed by
“or else she’ll scratch her face from cowlick to chinny chin.
launder clothing – or swaddle her in
one of daddy’s t-shirts for bed tonight.

little hope is held out for
get a haircut – which has been on the list since
about a week after elsie was born.
learn to knit – which has been there since
all the cool kids started doing it in college.

a few of the want to items might actually be higher priorities,
in twenty years will elsie ask me
if the floor was clean on 2.10.11? if she had a bath that day?
wouldn’t she rather laugh at a video of her baby self with her best friends?

take that logic tooooo far though
and in twenty years…

we’re all dead because dirty bathroom
& ghecko poo covered floor gave us the dysentary.
elsie never got to have a best friend because she never got a bath.

see what i’m saying?
this is big. this is decision making 02.10.2011.

    I cannot believe that “Call Jenn’s brother and wish him a Happy Birthday” was not on this list. Unbelievable…

    to do lists
    are strenuous

    or so very demanding.

    yet sometimes

    rather necessary.

    are living jesus, mexico, elsie &
    justin more and more each day.
