today, the knitting mocks me.
i can reach out and touch it, but the
actual knitting of it is shoved back hour by hour
because i am nearly buried under a mountain of forms.
camp physicals and permission slips and end of the year teacher notes,
state renewals and tax forms and more camp applications.
never have i felt quite so strongly as i do today
that what i need most as a mother of 4
and a self-employed designer
is a good secretary.
for the record,
my experience and job skills,
would not qualify me for the job. ha.
and irregardless pages that remain undone, the knitting hour is almost upon us.
truth is, the paperwork will be just as important tomorrow
as it feels right now. also, if i have to fill out one more ’emergency contact’
section before i get a good night’s sleep
the good secretaries at the camps
are likely to scratch their heads a bit when
they read that my kids have ‘people’ like mickey mouse,
batman and wonder woman for emergency contacts.
where, by the way, is wonder woman these days?
i sure could use her help…
‘tomorrow’ taken from 3:28 of proverbs.
