#Microblog Monday: My talent
So, lately like I feel like I have a new talent.
My talent is finding ways to not do the things I plan to do. Vacuuming, laundry, taking down Christmas cards, finishing filling out forms, writing thank you notes to the two or so people to whom I probably should write a formal thank you note, mailing letters, writing cheques, organizing photos, ordering a snot-sucker online...
It's not even that I don't have time. I do have time, occasionally. AJ does nap and have times where she doesn't need me rightnow. But when those times come I seem to develop an amnesia for all the things I said I'd do, and I end up reading random things on the internet, or reading a book, or blogging and it's only when the time is gone that I'm like, "oh yeah....."
I'm a little extra absent-minded today because my mom received some not-good news about her health. It's too soon to know what to expect, but 2015 will certainly involve some experiences for all of us that we'd rather not have. I don't feel too surprised at the moment. Somehow in the past 2 years, I've learned to expect bad news. The good news is the lucky exception.
I will find time to spend with my mom this week. And bring AJ to her. AJ is good medicine.
