From my far distant retirement some 30 years from now. If people are still able to retire at that point. I can look back on things that seemed like a big deal and really are not.
Here's what I want to remember looking back on my long, once and future life.
Post Script from the Present:
I don't think I am doing super well at the moment. It was winter break. I just wanted to hole up in my house and sleep the whole time. Which I did. For a lot of it. And I binge-watched Scandal. And ate vast quantities of sugar. And smoked apples in the house (which now will forever smell like a campfire). And watched elder boy compete in his swim meet.
And replaced the bathroom sink. Except that was a bigger project than I could handle and I cut all my fingers on a little piece of metal. And then discovered that there was a leak in the pipes that I couldn't fix myself. And then once the professional had done all the pipes stuff and put the sink back together and attached it to the wall realize that in ADDITION to all that, the faucet needed to be replaced. And I needed to cut down one of the drawers and install new slides so that the new shut-off valves would work. And now I am done.
And I just want to sleep and stay in my house and never come out. But I have to. Because school starts for me again on Monday.
