Of course, I was sitting on her bed, doing a crossword puzzle and her head was in my lap, but those dark circles from last night's melodrama-fest did their job (YAY, dark circles!) and she was too tired to fight the lids. So, now we'll just hope that she STAYS asleep, because with my darling daughter, that is never a given. :)
Good writing out there right now: The World According to Chuck
I'm feeling very accomplished at the moment, because I defeated, albeit not singlehandedly, the kids department. Go me! You can see the floor in both Martin and Karin's rooms AND the playroom, and their stuffed-animal-holder nylon net sausages are finally hanging from their ceilings (I love a man with a power drill)!
Next up: tackling the kid's art bench, which is filled with approximately a year's (or 2 tall trees) worth of paper in the form of children's drawings. These bring out my worst packrat/pitch-it dichotomic emotions. I don't know if dichotomic is a word, but if it's not, it should be.
People are asking what userpic their readers identify with most. I think I've changed mine too often for anyone to identify with one of mine. I like visual freshness, but I don't have a paid account yet, so I get tired of the same 3 after a relatively short time.
Anders just came home from the first game of his hockey-bockey tournament. If they had lost, they would have played the next game at 3:30 a.m., but because they won, they are playing at 4:30 A.M. So, if it's not KARIN waking me up in the middle of the night, it will be my husband.
One last thing: I made the most delicious soup today that was very Avgelemono-y (Greek chicken lemon soup). I started with a can of Campbell's Cream of Chicken, added half a can of water, half of skim milk, two chopped up, cooked artichoke bottoms, several spoonfuls of rice, and heaps of chervil, thyme, tarragon, salt and pepper. DEE-LISH.
