The Rules of Accomplishment

Sometimes it takes me nearly a week to complete a load of laundry. When it gets hot like this, it's not unusual. I have to focus all my energy on keeping the kids safe, because I have so little energy to begin with (or so it seems).

My tolerance for the heat has improved since I became a parent. But after a few days of over 90 degree heat, I'm pretty shot for patience.

I screamed at Eric in a Cambridge park today. That was NOT the DONE thing. Usually when somebody's kid is clobbering a 15 month old baby the parent will maybe put down their cell phone and have a serious conversation about why it's inappropriate to hit a baby with a bucket.

But me, if a situation needs immediate attention, I'll scream. But that's just me.
