So much has happened today, since I came home last night at 1 a.m. It hasn't even been 24 hours, but here are my accomplishments:
• sorted through worn clothes from the suitcase,
• had breakfast,
• started the laundry in my building’s basement,
• forgot that I’d intended to go to the gym first,
• forgot to pay for the clothes in the dryer,
• learned some gossip about the vacant apartment next door to me,
• had a long conversation with my brother about some of his family dysfunction,
• had a conversation with my daughter about her fall a couple of days ago (she’s okay),
• gone shopping for lunch and ingredients for dinner tonight,
• went to the gym,
• came home,
• made soup with leftover chicken carcass from the freezer and spelt,
• now watching the Democratic presidential candidates’ debate.
I still have to sort through two weeks’ worth of mail (I’ve already tossed a large flyer for cosmetic dentistry) and go through the travel receipts to see how big my next credit card bill will be. That’s a good job for the debate to go on in the background.
