Got the sun in my eyes...! Can't beat The Carpenter's for making me feel like a relic of the 70's. It's another blueskycloudless scorcher of a day here in Flyinge. We have nearly nothing on the agenda except, since tomorrow I inch closer to 40 by a year, the following:

Anders: buy Liz presents
Liz: bake a cake and frost it
Anders: buy Liz more presents, preferably sparkly ones

I have other miscellaneous housecleaning things to do, and Martin's room still needs to be organized but no stress about any of it.

I'm trying to figure out why I really started this online journal. Since I've told several people about it, who might actually go and read it (and some already have), I can't say everything and anything I might want to, for discretion's sake.

Last night at dinner, gale_storm complimented me deeply by saying that I wasn't one of those people whose brain has been sucked out by having children. I assured her that it had, and even Anders backed me up by saying, "You should have known her before." :) But I do feel that a lot of my creativity and energy has been sucked out and that I'm only now starting to try and find my way back to it. I think I've subsumed most of my creative urges into the various websites I work on, but they feel so...I don't know...unreal. They aren't something I can touch or put on the wall. Why is it that I think my cyber creations have less value than if they were physically tangible?


    I threw my back out this weekend, moving furniture around in the kids' rooms and then made it worse by continuing to work, and then cleaning out the…
