A list that will never be written
My 7 and 3/4 year old informed me, when I pleaded for help with cleaning the living room, that I just had to make a plan, follow the plan and then I'd be done. She made it sound so logical and easy to do and follow through on. I revisited last year's resolutions. My kids encouraged me to give up sleeping "when there is fun around". They also encouraged more swimming and skating and less after school program. Since I did not actually adopt the "less after school program" (it was only a suggestion after all) I won't worry about that one. We did swim quite a bit but we've not really done enough skating for my liking. As it turned out, I felt less inclination to nap during fun times this year, but also learned to love sleep on a much deeper level when there wasn't. Check.
Tomorrow is a clean slate. I am not making a list. I am just going to try and keep light flowing through me. Whatever it takes, I'm going to turn against darkness.
