Please excuse my tardiness. Last night I went out to get a sandwich and ended up barricaded in the parking lot, along with ten or so other cars, by police who were tending to a fatal crash. Somehow being twenty feet away from body bags made it impossible to eat my sandwich. In fact, I had to come home and take a sedative.
I know it seems lame, but having no choice but to sit so close to, and absorb the loss of life, kind of makes cleaning seem irrelevant, at least for today.
Instead, hug and kiss your kids all day, let them watch extra tv, and have one more popsicle. Life is so fleeting, damn.
I'm sure we all have things which must get done today, just don't worry about doing extra. The clutter will wait, this day with your kids cannot.
