He goes to preschool.

I drink coffee, watch trashy

TV, feel guilty.

But sometimes a mom just needs to veg out undisturbed, right?

on the walk to school

from my bed I hear

the hollow scrape of a plow —

he dreams of Cali

Every winter at this time, Hubby starts extolling the virtues of California. Those virtues consist of one thing — the weather.

Every time we’re in California visiting his family, he always ends up telling me he would go crazy spending too much time in the car to go anywhere and fight traffic.

I try and remind him about his car concerns when he gets into his winter slump, but he always blows me off and tells me the traffic wouldn’t bother him.

Sounds like it’s time to go to California so that he can remember again (and, I won’t lie, for a little warmth).

“What’s that?” Han Min asks,

pointing to his ears. The roof

pops against the cold.
