Where were we? Oh, yes, I’m still jobless and now spending every spare moment studying for the GRE. If Amy can paint eight walls in 47 minutes, and Tina can paint 13 walls in 34 minutes, how long does it take the pair to paint 16 walls? Stumped?
When Henry was about a year old, Greg and I started to talk about having another baby. We were out on a walk, pulling the kids in a wagon, and they were so darling together, with Eleanor singing and Henry giving hearty belly laughs. I imagined Thanksgiving and Christmas with three kids or get-togethers in 20 years with all of those adult children.
I have a hundred blog ideas, but when I sit down to write, they become too heavy or political or revealing. I’ve wanted to write about Henry leaving the baby stage behind, about reading as a form of protest, and about my fear that our country is headed for some sort of civil war. For now, I am going to write about the future because I’m trying to focus my energy there.
