After going through my previous blog posts, I realize why it has lately become a laborious effort for me to post an entry--it takes me forever to write one! In the time it takes me to write a post, peace treaties could have been signed and broken. When I was in school, I preferred essay exams and loved writing papers. The longer the better. When asked for a three-sentence reply, I gave five. But for the sake of my reader(s), my woefully neglected chores, my (often futile) attempt to go to bed at a decent hour on school nights and my effort to alleviate my carpal tunnel, I have to learn to be succinct. Considering it took me that many words just to say I need to be brief, this is going to be quite the challenge. But I'm up for it. In fact, I'm going to start now.
My daughter is awesome. Period.
(Even if she does eat blue marker during an art project.)
