so far this week i have been bound and determined to stick to light. i’m skimming the surface for easy, cute and funny. heck, i’ll even settle for just plain silly or inane. i can’t do heavy. i can’t delve deep. truth be told, i’m afraid if i let her out, I’ll have no chance of putting edwina back in the bowl.
so if you too are feeling like your life is a bag of red hot blues, i invite you to join me for some pringles.
in that vain, a list ..
1 book of cd’s – nicely organized
13 empty and very random cd cases – not organized at all
2 copies (yes 2) of pat green’s ‘what i’m for’
1 caramel colored lambs wool wrap – henri bendel circa 1996 (still fashionable)
6 hair elastics / scrunchies
1 worn paperback copy of flowers for algernon
1 early reader – dora climbs star mountain
1 very dead verizon cell phone used as a toy
1 ‘john elder robison – free range aspergian’ baseball cap
1 gucci sunglass case – empty
1 pair of north face winter gloves
1 paperback copy of dora saves mermaid kingdom
1 long lost insurance card
1 spiral bound packet – ‘guide to special education programs 2006-2007’
1 really cool hair clippy thing that my hair is no longer long enough to accommodate
1 board book – dora goes for a ride
1 gift wrapped pair of earrings – bought for katie for christmas last year, lost and replaced in time to fill her stocking
1 bottle of oil of olay ‘quench’ body lotion – unopened
1 happy meal toy bee
the big book of questions and answers
1 paperback copy of sara pennypacker’s clementine (pennypacker? really?)
1 hard cover copy of corduroy’s ‘lift the flap’ halloween
2 packages of unused christmas cards
1 scarf that katie made for me last year out of fleece quilting squares
1 roll of industrial garbage bags
2 electrical extension cords – not 1 but 2

1 pair of ann taylor corduroy pants – black
1 pair of calvin klein high-heeled booties – so far out of style that they were back in last winter
4 bottles of water
1 package of christmas tags
incontrovertible proof that i will someday be living in 3 feet of my own debris with at least seventeen cats and a parakeet.
oh, and if you’d like to take a stab at what the list above is, i’ll be happy to make it a contest and send the winner the extra copy of pat green’s ‘what i’m for’ – your call.
