the short list

20 . January . 2011

after our cross country stint
over winter holiday,
we taped a piece of
paper to the kitchen cabinet
and began penciling a
short list
with two columns,
‘here’ and ‘there’

as in, things that are important
‘here’ vs. ‘there’

here:
shoes (no compromise. you walk everywhere.)
bags (no trunk or backseat to toss your purchases in for the schlep home)
outerwear (seriously winter-tight situation required or you’re in tears)
household organization (every square inch counts)

there:
good sunglasses (driving)
confident night driving skills (tres difficile)
ipod play list (for the car)
mad grocery-store-layout skills (otherwise it’s a black hole, no?)

nathan added that ‘here’
people love to complain,
[a favorite pastime, indeed]
so you need awesome
complaining/entitlement/articulation/kvetching skills.

and you should probably
brush up on your yiddish;
oy gevalt.

ps –
a little song for the morning,
from lucy* about her sister, julia:

“and she smacks off her mind
and she flowers in her mind
and all her dreams come truuuuuuue”

very catchy.
love to california. xo

pps –
set your tivo:
our very own louise
will be on the view.
thurs, 1/20

proudofyou,L.

*she’ll be three in february.
i can’t believe it.
it feels like yesterday
our paula was the
epitome of the
radiant pregnant woman.

pregnant p + caroline
