it’s easier to say that i will do better than it is to actually do better. it’s a good thing for Jesus.
sometimes a long and hot bath is just the ticket.
i do not worry too much if i see a bug wriggling in the bag of dried rice. this is not something to mention to dinner guests or to picky children.
do not remember the way the leaves on the grass seem to glow in the dark, right at dusk when the sun is disappearing. this is a nice thing to forget and find every fall when the clocks move back, right before supper.
sometimes you think you’re being funny but the other person just thinks you’re weird. be careful of this.
beautiful mornings, don’t take them for granted. also, keep windows open as long as possible into the fall and possibly the winter. this may require heavy pajamas and extra socks. so be it.
there is such a thing as too much garlic.
please don’t let your hair grow out. it always looks terrible, is always shoulder length, often frizzy, and makes you look like a hag. schedule a haircut.
wondering why we all think it’s so neat when the numbers align themselves. humans are weird.
will this house be the last house in which i sling a baby, walk the floors with someone newly born?
should seriously think about beginning to pack
hide sparklers and ice cream from kids until you want them to know about them.
clean the house before hanging seasonal decorations. really now, you should know better than this…
make more notes to myself
gardenias! plant them!
buy soft kleenex! stay away from pollen! sneeze with abandon!
dictate lists to henry more often.
eat more ice cream: it will be okay.
do not cut bangs on yourself no matter how good they look on another girl’s flickr self-portraiture. please remember this. possibly have ernie hide hair-cutting scissors.
