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?



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!


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.

1] trying to keep up on reading, but not posting or commenting much because of cutting my computer time short lately {my daughter was here!! and other adventures and non adventures} I still love you :) and will try to comment more soon
2]if you are a bad mom for thinking sleeping in, then bad mom is the norm ~~ what about bad spouse? aren't we supposed to think sex when the inlaws take the kids? just a thought from not a spouse and not a kids at home mom {trying to make my comment longer *chuckle*}
3]great descriptive post. Again
4]thanks liz
5]what page? did I miss something between the camping trip and the etc etc....?

I was tired and grumpy yesterday, so you have to promise not to mind me :)

And yes, you did miss something! Go back and read the post from August 12th :)

Geeze. I totally missed that. I remember seeing the Idiosyncrasy headings as I was heading out the door to Portland and planning on coming back to it, but I guess I never did. Well, I'll have to start thinking about a page as I get out there in the yardwork mode before its completely dreary here~~ overcast the last few mornings and a hint of a seasonal shift, even though we are still having near eighties in the midday.


I know I am probably revealing something uncool about myself here, but..ah, what's a "slambook?"

Re: P.S.

hahaha! It's something from junior high/high school. A little notebook that you passed around between your friends and wrote little comments about them or about the cute boys in school :)

Re: P.S.

We did that on scraps of paper and called them "notes."

Re: P.S.

are you saying we were more sophisticated?? :D
