Thoughts going through my head simultaneously:

1. What can I do to be a better parent to Claire?

2. What can Brant and I do to parent together better for Claire? Should we resume doing "family" activities, even though we really aren't a family? Should we remain separate entities? What would make her feel more secure?

3. I need to pick up the Your Baby's Self-Esteem and the Dora and the Potty books I ordered that are sitting at the leasing office. Need to do it, need to do it, need to do it.

4. I can't WAIT to eat the beef stew I made for dinner tonight.

5. I hope Claire likes the beef stew.

6. Should I attempt to get Claire back in her own bed tonight? It needs to be done, but should I let her sleep w/me anyway? Do I have it in me to win that fight tonight?

7. I need to get the garbage out to the dumpsters today.

8. I wish this headache would go away.

9. I wonder if Claire would like the Memory game? I should try that.

10. I need to pluck my eyebrows.

11. I need to get a jar of roasted red peppers to make soup.

12. I miss my friends.

13. I need to pick my prescription up.

14. I need to get to the post office.

15. I need to concentrate on this proposal.

And those are just the thoughts for the last 60 seconds. Busy mind seeks quiet refuge...gonna keep looking.

you are back! I am glad. Here is my 2 cents... enjoy your beef stew with Miss Claire, pluck your eyebrow, and let her sleep with you for another night(I know, I shouldn't say this!)... then worry about all to-do's tomorrow morning!

Good night!

Just stumbled across your blog... Isn't that what always seems to happen. I feel like I make lists like this all the time. Today I made one about getting in shape. Doubt that will happen but it's worth the try. Number 12 I completly agree with. The ones that you had when you were about fives years old and could make a game out of a few sticks and play for hours. Whatever happened to good, old Fashioned games? It will forever be a mystery to me.
