2015: The Year I was Realistic Instead of Dreamy by Tracy Holczer

1. Try to be more present in the moment (so you don't do things like: forget where you are at a stoplight that lasts more than thirty seconds, put the milk in with the glasses, or forget to rinse the conditioner out of your hair)

2. Wash the dog.

3. Ask your children more questions.

4. Collect compliments (so you can read them when it's two o'clock in the afternoon and you catch your reflection which includes: pajamas, a rat's nest of hair and mascara caked under your eyes because you've been writing all morning and forgot you were a human being)

5. Make sure the dust bunnies don't turn into tumbleweeds.

There! Perfectly reasonable.

May you all have a wonderfully reasonable year.
