Sunday: A List of Things That Are Done

  1. Mom’s visit: dropped off at the airport after four nights of visiting us and our little girl.
  2. Dogs Sunday: walked, played with, pooped, sleeping.
  3. Groceries: ready for the week.
  4. Dinner: cooked, eaten, cleaned up.
  5. Diarrhea: (hopefully).
  6. November. Two weeks until break.
  7. Thanks have genuinely been given.
  8. Tree: bought, living room rearranged, tree set-up, ornamented, lit with golden lights.
  9. Menorah: brought out, candles set up, lit, burned, out. We do our own version of Hanukkah, usually before Hanukkah is celebrated. The glow of candles makes me feel cozy.
  10. Sleep-deprivation: Not at all done. Very much the present status with a five-month old.
  11. Baby’s Sunday: happy, silly, walked around in nature, excited, discovering the texture and taste of pears, full of milk, sleepy, cranky, dozing, rested, hungry, full, cranky, pooped, cleaned, bathed, nursed, sleepy, sleeping.
  12. Trash, recycling, fur swept, dust collected. Leaves swept and dropped into bin.
  13. Life continues.

Writing. Poetry. Personal Essays. On the NBA, MLB, media, journalism, culture, teaching and humor.
