Fiorella drove off to meet with friend Ashley at Starbucks a little before 10:00 and practiced her high register voice as the two of them solved the world's problems, then stood in line at the post office to mail information about Husband to the sons and nephews, then dropped a couple of bags of donations at The Caring Place, then headed back to Target to buy some of those nice gel pens that Husband favored, then drove into the hinterlands to leave a pile of choir and chorus books at the door of a musical friend, then stopped in at St. David's Hospital to get her blood thinner checked (which took way longer than she'd been told it would) then pulled into H-E-B to load up on groceries, then picked up her mail at the top of the driveway and unloaded the car when she arrived home at 4:30.
And the kids wonder what she does with her time.
Somewhere in the world, there are people who wake up in the morning and say, "What can I do to while away the time today?" Fio wakes up each morning and says, "How can I squeeze an extra hour of two into my day?"
Face it, Fiorella--when you've committed to do fifty million things a day, you can't keep track of them all. On the other hand, that's why libretas amarilla were invented.
For the past year and a half, Fio has been totally centered on her family, sometimes to her own detriment, but now she has to start taking care of herself, which is why she's working on her speaking voice, her stride, her posture, and her future.
Climate change is inevitable, but let's not hasten it along.
