Failed Promises

That I would slow down

That I wouldn’t rush through the Los Angeles Times

That I wouldn’t be inpatient driving my Toyota Camry and scream to myself

That I would sleep more than seven hours

That I wouldn’t let my mind work overtime and prevent me from getting back to sleep

That I would pay attention to grammar and spelling before sending out query letters

That I would chew my breakfast bake potato with butter so I don’t get gas

That I wouldn’t get angry when my husband is late for dinner

That I wouldn’t beat myself up when I forget things

That I wouldn’t get distracted.
