Then the other day, I came across a magazine ad for the movie "Friends with Kids" on which the headline read: LOVE, HAPPINESS, KIDS (PICK TWO). Hmmmm, I thought. There's something to this system.
So of course I started to think of all of the different combinations for which this model could work. With Town Meeting Day and the big fall election on the brain, for instance, I came up with: HONEST, EFFECTIVE, POLITICIAN (PICK TWO).
More and more now, as I find myself balancing way too much on my plate at the office, with a growing toddler, new house plans, and a husband that's carrying much of the load at home, I can't help but feel like my options most nights are pretty weak: WORK, FAMILY, SLEEP.
Tonight, for my sanity, I pick but one.
