She Knows Me Well

A snippet of conversation between Polly and her Southern Grandparents (aka Pop and Mem) as they talked via Skype last night:

Mem: What has your Mommy been doing?

Polly: (short pause) Reading, reading, reading and laundry.

And yes, it is an accurate picture of my life. Even while they were carrying on this conversation I was in the other room with two baskets of laundry waiting to be folded and an almost finished book. Occasionally I throw in a little teaching or cleaning or cooking or bumped-head-kissing or sibling squabble refereeing but otherwise, reading and laundry sum up my days.

So, minus the omnipresent laundry, I'm living the life I always wanted.
