Today I have to do things my way. I have to have coffee in the morning. Dishes mostly done.
Listen to the same song. Over and over. Empty the baskets she filled and sort them out. Clean laundry in one. Mail on the desk. Plastic cup in the sink.
Monday set me back weeks. Brakes gone. Everything from the car thrown into my sewing room. Feet tired from all the walking.
A month of paper recycling under my desk. I can't miss it again next week. I just can't.
The living room in nearly clean. J. is upstairs with a headache. Sam needs a nap. He won't take one.
I will make another cup of coffee. I will vacuum the living room. I will listen to sports radio for comfort. What are we coming to? A meltdown.
