A Wee Bit of Trouble Concentrating

I am having just a wee bit of trouble getting anything done. Anything, that is, besides dicking around on the internet preparing to go to China.

Much lies in between us and China, as it happens. Including Seattle and my sister-in-law’s wedding, Lily’s birthday, a photo shoot for Family Fun magazine, and some pretty substantial housework. Among the things I could have accomplished today, it’s worth including: ordering bow ties, arranging a larger propane tank, packing up assorted outgrown clothing, completing a variety of writing-related tasks and emails such, figuring out why my “mobile me” calendar never syncs, learning additional Mandarin….

I could go on. But instead, I’ll: draft the first part of something, send my editor at NHPR my next post, go home and pick up Sam’s ballet stuff, order the bow ties and call my doctor about travel shots. That’s a good, achievable list for the afternoon. Oh, and drop books at the library.

Oh, sorry, am I boring you?

    “Lai lin!”

    That means “Come here.” I figure it will be useful when speaking to a toddler.

    What other useful phrases should I know?

Check out In Her Boots!

You see a sexist jerk, the voice of the Modern Pioneer girl whispered in my head. I see a teaching opportunity.

There's nothing my inner super-hero likes more than being understimated.
