Things I Can Count On

(Inspired by Rachel at Buttons Magee.)

A list of elements that recur daily in my life:

Tantrums from the kid.

Hugs and kisses from the kid.

Lots of prescription pills.

Headaches, usually of the migraine type.

Being annoyed by the kid.

Being annoyed by the husband.

Washing dishes by hand.

Texting/calling/visiting my best friend.



Vacuuming up piles of dog and cat hair.

Cooking at least one meal from scratch.


Playing with my camera.


Straightening up some new mess in the house.

Thinking of planting a garden, but not being able to.

Being kicked by the baby boy fetus.

Worrying about the baby boy fetus.

Worrying about the kid.

Wondering if I'm screwing up the kid.

Not caring if I'm screwing up the kid.

Wondering if my doula venture will work.

Online window shopping.


Waffles with butter and honey for the kid.

Kissing a boo-boo.


Being inspired by all that the kid sees: cars, birds, messes, crayons.

Wishing my hair was longer.

OK, that's all I've got.

Sounds familiar!

Just found your blog... lived in Tacoma for years until we moved out to Graham awhile back. Nice to see a local face out here in blog land.
