"Just start getting it down," Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird. Well, here we are past the halfway point. The hardest thing about this challenge is putting something out into the world every day. This needs A LOT of work...but I just thought I'd start getting it down.
My alarm went off at six o'clock this morning. Slowly I put two feet on the floor still tired from reading Slice of Life posts well into the night. I walk into the foyer with eyes half open. I first notice a laundry holder resting by the dryer. "That's strange," I think to myself. I try to wake up to make sense of the clues.
I open the dryer to find my son's clothes inside. Still half asleep and trying to focus I think back. I had let the dog in for the night, turned off the lights, and locked up the house before going to sleep. I was up until after midnight and didn't hear him come into the house, but signs are everywhere.
The signs are all there, sometime in the night my son must have quietly arrived home for the weekend from college. I'm looking forward to coming home this evening to catch up with him. I'm sure the Fritos will be gone by then.
