I think I hear a comment almost daily from one of my playground mom friends about her frustration about forgetting things. Or it might be me making this comment. Sometimes I feel like my brain has become a slosh pit. I try to read, memorize new words, spend my few seconds of free time doing productive activities (like reading War and Peace; thank you Lynne for persuading me to take on this wordy hecatomb!) But to no avail, the slosh pit, gets sloshier, the details of yesterday fade and fade and fade until last week remains a blur. After watching this amazing 60 minutes episode I thought, something must be done. I cannot go on like this any longer. My brain needs help. Thus my new year's resolution to write in my little sketchbook/journal every day this year. One short little blurb or one little sketch to sum up each day. Hopefully this will help me give form to my days and nights, delineate details that might otherwise fade into oblivion.
