the plan

Today, the plan is that my brother David and I will take Mom out for a few hours, and Dad still stay home, cleaning the house. My prediction: Dad will do his best to accomplish a great deal, but in the end, because most chores and projects tend to expand in scope even as they're being done, he won't be able to accomplish even half of his to-do list. We've all experienced that problem before: we start down the list with the best of intentions, but a few hours later, we marvel at how time has flown by. I'd rather stay home and help out-- the wind we've had the past few days has driven more leaves off our trees-- but I think today's plan is already set.
