A quiet morning

August 31, 2006

6:30 AM.

Soft padding of feet, a glimpse of a pink nightgown, and a tightly-clutched teddy bear behind me as I blearily look at my computer, coffee in hand. Hugs as I sniff her baby smelling head.

Second child comes down, in nothing but underpants. His round tummy is irresistible. He almost purrs as I rub his back and try to eat him because he’s such an old bear.

Reason #45872 why I’m glad I get to work from home.


Why I Love Wolverine

August 27, 2006
  1. He has neat hair.
  2. Looks good in either yellow spandex OR tight leather. Mmmm. Leather.
  3. Devilish glint in his eyes.
  4. He’s a rebel with a heart. He CARES, yall.
  5. Oh, I don’t know. He’s just a sexy man, Lieutellant. So sue me.

Luke, I am your father…you little snotnose

August 27, 2006

As it’s summer in the Northwest, we vary wildly between semi-chilly summer days and freakishly hot days. Like today. So we’ve got all the fans on and the crazy husband keeps going behind them saying in his best James Earl Jones voice:

Luke…..I am your father….come to the dark side….

What if Luke had actually just given it a bit of thought? Here’s how I think the conversation might’ve gone:

Darth: Luke, I am your father.
Luke: No way.
Darth: Seriously. I really am.
Luke: Where’ve you been, dude?
Darth: Well, you know how it is….the old lady threw me out and then-
Luke: Dad. Please. Mom did NOT throw you out.
Darth: I don’t need to explain myself to you.
Luke: Well, I think I deserve SOME kind of explanation after all this time.
Darth: (sigh) Can we just move on?
Luke: Yeah. Sure. Whatever.
Darth:’re a Jedi now? Kinda?
Luke: Oh, you noticed? Yeah, I’ve been practicing. Doing…you know, stuff.
Darth: You wanna meet the Emperor? He’s a nice guy. Good boss. I’ve been happy.
Luke. Sure. (pause) Thanks, Dad.
Darth: No problem, son.

School Shopping Is Fun (Really)

August 26, 2006

Okay! I’m one of those weird moms who actually likes to go school shopping. I enjoy the whole process – the sniffing of the pencils, the selecting of the perfect crayons and peachies, the school clothes, the backpacks.

I’m wondering though why every store in the world feels the need to market I’m A Little Slut clothes for girls ages 4-6. Shopping for my daughter lately feels like a trip to Frederick’s of Hollywood, except with more pink.

Anywho, so we got the older two taken care of, but the dd is going to take some creative shopping. I’m thinking eBay? That’s what I did last year.

Wow, this post is getting boring…how can I spice it up. Oh! We saw some old friends today whilst shopping and it was AWESOME. Makes me wonder why we’re staying down here where we’re at, where we have no family and no old friends…lots of new friends, though.

Still boring. Let’s see….

I plan on doing cross-stitch tonight and lighting my new pumpkin spice candle. How’s that?


I like my yard.
