Ordinary family, ordinary problems

Like aging in general, and what to do with the amount of trash that makes its way once a week to the curb. Who will pay the ordinary family's bills? What will the ordinary daughter wear on Tuesday? Will the ordinary son remember to bring the necessary resources home in order to complete his homework? Will they sleep every night? Will the night come? The day? Will she lie awake, her brain unable to stop its doing doing doing? Will the will like a wheelbarrow carry and carry, adding nothing, having only itself? Will the mail come on time? Will willows whisper in the eaves? Will a new addition suffice? Will the counter tops be granite? Who will break whose heart? At what time, and in what instance? Or may they break their own?
