Twisted & Tightly Wrapped
I don't want to do school work from home. There's more than enough of my own work here. There aren't enough hours in the day at home, either. Mama Sisyphus, pushing a boulder of accumulated stuff around the house every day. From my vantage point here in the dining room/makeshift office, I see bills, medical benefits claim forms, unsent birthday cards, school & library books, unfinished cross stitch, teaching materials for my church class, newspapers, diabetes detritus, and a floor that needs sweeping. Everything needs attention here, just as the pile of papers on my desk that won't get any smaller until I attend to them, one by one.
Listen, universe. I'm asking for a change. I want to write instead of process paperwork. I want to have the time to keep my house in order. I would like to be less tightly wrapped.
While we're at it, how about a cure for diabetes? An end to war? A way to combine chocolate consumption & weight loss?
