Time Minion

It's winter 2009 and I am typing on my iPod touch while watching sitcom reruns on DVD and my infant sleeps on me.

Oh wait. It's winter 2013 and I am typing on my iPhone while streaming sitcom reruns on Netflix and my preschooler sleeps on me.

Four years later, and here I am. Pinned to the couch.

I am going to start a club called Underachievers Anonymous.*

*Fortunately, I am an underachiever, so I don't have to worry about capitalizing on this idea.

In Which I Set Impossibly High Standards for Myself Thereby Insuring the Necessity for Repeating this Process Same Time, Next Year

New Year's Resolutions blow. So I'm keeping it simple. And a month late.

1. Complete 2012. I'm not kidding. This includes books, essays, knitting, art, house projects, and any other random thing I started in the year previous to 2013. As this will consume the better part of a year, this is my only resolution aside from #2.

2. Buy new socks and underwear and throw the old ones away*. Seriously, what is wrong with me?

*with a few exceptions. Ladies, you know what I am talking about.
