Bare Essentials

May 14 update: I finally got around to finishing this post. Having time to pursue the things we enjoy is a bit of a luxury, but then it really is about taking the time isn't it?

With a newborn in the house, the living has been primal. There seems to be just enough time for the barest of essentials, like getting sleep and putting on clean underwear. It is amazing how things concerning dress can fall by the wayside. Suddenly socks have holes in them, and every shirt seems to be wrinkled. At a time when dressing is about covering up, holes and wrinkles are just fine! Every button, zipper, belt and shoelace is a struggle. Sportswear and tights become a godsend.
