i like days i get things done. i like starting my week off with a clean room and bathroom. i like having a framework within which to function. i like having, as my grandmothher used to say, a plan of attack.
i shared my food plan for katie's house with meg, upon whom the brunt of the work and responsibility will fall. she eyed me first with horror, then alarm. i don't want to have to know how to do all this, she protested.
it's good training, i insisted. you'll have to know how to do all this eventually some day- this is meal planning and shopping and menu choosing and feeding people. if you don't let me teach you how to do this, you're going to have to figure it out on your own. and if you don't learn now, while you have this opportunity, it's going to make your life that much harder when you have a family of your own.
i know, she replied with a deep sigh and an air of resignation, as she went off with the plan and a cook book under her arm.
and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.
