Tomorrow

Pick up the boys at daycare after work.
Don’t forget lunch at Mom’s the next day.
Boys go back to Stacey’s on Friday this time, not Thursday (don’t ask them about Stacey but be alert).
Blake might need new boots.
It’s supposed to get cold tomorrow, Mom might have stuff to use.
Make plans for the summer and tell the boys, maybe tell them about the lake,
it’s possible you could go this year maybe, tell them about you and Stacey maybe,
they know so little about you and Stacey, what do they know even, do they even remember?
Tell them something.
Will’s been liking the library, maybe go to the library.

“Late at night when all personal failings are discussed openly inside the head; in the shower after dark nights, trying to wash away the hangover and regrets; rare moments when some dumb thing reminded Mags of the simplicity of her uni years, like the smell of someone eating Ramen in the lunch room.”
