Sunday Scribblings: In the Last Hour

  • In the last hour I have presided over bathtime and books.
  • I have avoided the laundry, the dishes, and our bills.
  • I have changed into play clothes and cursed the slow-draining tub.
  • I have wished for better radio reception.
  • I have been happy for Miss Amy getting air time on Kids Corner!
  • I have been sad for C, who lost her job.
  • I have been outraged that anyone, even someone who mostly works online, could be fired by email.
  • I have been pleased to think about Grammy and Grampy being back online again.
  • I have put lotion on my hands, which have been handling paper all day.
  • I have called my sweetie, to urge her to head on home.
  • I have dreamed of buying a few books online before my coupon expires.
  • I have wondered if I could write an entry without using the word "I" once.
  • And I have planned unearthing our Advent Calendar. While simultaneously looking forward to Leslie's.
(Thanks to the fun women of Sunday Scribblings
for their continuing inspiration.)

sounds like a fairly busy hour. Nice job on this weeks SS. Just wanted to stop in and say hello for the most part.

That is definitely the hour of a parent with little children. Busy. Good job with the SS prompt.

I love the way you used a list format. I can relate to a million things going around my head within the space of an hour.

Beware, the return of the laundry, the dishes, and [your] bills.

"...without using the word 'I' once"... I've asked myself the same question. What a challenge that would be.
