A miracle occurred this morning: Youngest Daughter got herself up for school on time!
Meanwhile, I overslept and didn’t get out of bed until 7:20. Maybe it’s because I face a big to-do list today. My singularly uninteresting and suburban-housewifely list is below, for those of you who love reading lists. It’s now 11:00 AM and I have gotten the groceries, made the appointment for the car, and started the laundry. But it looks like there needs to be another miracle for any more of my list to get done. (Notice how ‘write a blog post’ was not on my list.) I think I ought to add 'Be grateful for small miracles' to my list.
