Dear Kid,


  • Wake up
  • Go back to sleep
  • Wake up again
  • Stumble downstairs
  • Snuggle Puppy
  • Consider having breakfast
  • Try to use ESP to get someone to bring me breakfast
  • Get breakfast myself
  • Take cold medicine
  • Stare at the TV while the meds kick in
  • Stare at the TV some more
  • Wonder what I’ve been watching on TV
  • Wonder how people actually have energy today
  • Consider having lunch – reject the idea as waaay too much work
  • Decide not to leave the house today
  • Promise to help Pi make latkes for school
  • Wonder how to make latkes while sitting on the couch
  • Watch Bengals football game—be glad I’m watching on TV and not in person
  • Write to-do list
  • Think about doing things on the to-do list
  • Wish I could clone myself and have someone else work on that huge to-do list
  • Try to use ESP to switch places with Booker. Think about getting off the couch to snuggle him. Decide that’s waaay too much effort.
  • Send Pi to wash potatoes. Rest.
  • Realize I might have to move at some point. Decide to put that off as long as possible.
  • Try to use ESP to make a cup of tea. Decide I have absolutely no ESP-like abilities.
  • Use ESP to cheer for the Bengals’ TD. Decide that really didn’t require ESP.
  • Think taking a nap. Decide thinking is waaay too much work.
  • Realize I am a pathetic lump of mom-ness.

Must go save up some energy to help Pi.

Love, Mom
