I'm going to assume the lack of comments lately means you're all busy working on your pages. You are, aren't you? Working on your pages?

Hello?

***

The in-laws called yesterday. They want to take the kids tomorrow night (Thursday) and keep them until Saturday. I boggle at their generosity. Am I a bad mom for the first thought passing through my mind was WOO! SLEEP IN! Just wondering, but not really caring, because WOOHOO!

Heh.

I begin to think this week, this month, will never end. It's like a wave pulling at me, tumbling me along. I'm still paddling gamely, but my arms are starting to hurt.

Sleep swells in me, it batters at my eyelids, and pulls them down, holds them closed. Small swirls of aching pain trace electric lightning across the insides of my eyelids. I open them again, but they're a drag to raise. If I press on my eyes, through my eyelids, I can feel them giving in, going under, softly receding. The sky is clear, the air as well. I'll keep the window open tonight to bring in breezes. Sleepy nighttime breezes, whiffling the grasses. An airliner high overhead grooves a lullaby line across the sky. I leave behind a frenzied day, an angry day, a day of hectic hopping, a day of do-overs. I put my head in my hands and that jumping bean, my brain, moves under my fingers. It's trying to get out. Rubbing vigorously, I soothe it to rest.

Could you come over and do your eyelid trick on me? My lack of commenting is because I've been busy WORKING (damn this real life)...oh yeah, and FUMING about the working...and lying awake at night because I'm busy as a beaver building huge resentment dams against a new coworker...and... Okay, you get the picture. ~Marilyn

P.S. re the pages...Oh, you were serious? :)

LOL! You bet your bippy, missy.

My god. I think I was channeling my father for a second, there.

It's the whole WORKING thing that's getting in my way. But yes, I do need to work on my page. I haven't been feeling the whole VISUAL creative thing, but don't worry. It will come.

And I'm glad you're getting a break - sleep wise, I hope, this weekend. I'm sure I will fantasize about sleep after I have kids - I love that passage in Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood where Vivi runs away to the hotel to get away from her children, and she describes sleep tasting like crispy French bread.
