The next time someone asks me how I'm doing, I will refer them to this photo.
This was taken a few days ago. That's my baby's socks. He had kicked them off while we sat at the dinner table one night last week. I didn't pick them up. I thought about it, but I was too tired. On the socks is some spaghetti. Spaghetti is my fall-back meal when I am sleep-walking through the dinner time hour. Note how dried out the spaghetti is. That is because it too fell on the floor at dinnertime last week. Again, I was too tired to pick it up. The kicker? The two events were not even on the same night. The socks fell one night, the spaghetti the next. And I left them both there, overnight, and I didn't even feel that bad about it. Until the next day. I cannot believe what I allow sometimes as far as cleanliness goes these days. It's disgusting, I know. It's all cleaned up now. But the picture is quite a good response to the query "How are you doing?". Dried spaghetti on baby socks on my kitchen floor for over 24 hours. That's how I'm doing.
