One Cobble at a Time

I have too many events in the next two weeks

Sandra Tayler's Journal

A cobble by itself is just a small stone, but when many of them lay together they create a path . My life is made up of many discrete parts. I have to find ways to fit them all into place so that I can continue to journey where I desire to go. This journal records some of the cobbles that create my path.

I have too many events in the next two weeks

These are my things, not all of my things, because I know I am forgetting some of them. I’m pretty sure the kid leaving junior high also has some things, but I haven’t seen that list of events, so I don’t know what they are or where they fit.
Also missing from the list: me collapsing because my brain has frizzled out from trying to track all of it. I do not recommend having three children graduating from their schools the same year. Particularly if you have also agreed to ship 30,000 coins.

help child prepare 5 homemade items for trading post, must be cool enough that other kids want them.

After that there is more stuff. I’ll think about it when I either get all of this stuff right or recover from failing at it.

Comments are open on the original post at onecobble.com.

  • It is rather terrifying how your list crammed full of Stuff To Do has yet more Stuff Not to Volunteer To Do. Yikes! D:

    Also, I am way behind on my friends list. I hope everything's been going well so far!
    • Things are proceeding well. I packaged your order today. It'll be going into the mail tomorrow.
      • Squeee! I wasn't going to ask but I'm glad I won't have to wait 'til after the con. :D
