In this cold (so cold) dark, snowy, gray and cheerless January, I’m thinking rather than doing.
I’m thinking about the colors pale aqua, white, pale pink and crimson.
Huskies. I’m not an animal person, and definitely not a dog person, but if I was, I would run out right now and procure one. Beautiful, haunting faces.
Lemons. Meyer Lemons.
Do I want to live here anymore? In this state? In this country?
Will. Learn. To. Knit. If. It. KILLS. ME.
Can one kidnap one’s own husband? Is this allowed? What are the repercussions?
Seed catalog time. After last year’s dismal failure due to being unable to keep a squirmy one year old from running the entire 15 feet from our front door to the street – I’m a little unsure about my ability to be outside and absorbed with dirt and watch her at the same time.
How does one make math hilarious? And fun? I sure as hell don’t know.
Do not give your toddler a 5 lb. jar of river stones under the guise of Montessori teaching/play/blahblahblah. Every time you think you’ve put them all back, the jar will be just a little less full than it was the last time, but you mysteriously won’t be able to find any more pebbles.
What do you do when your sister moves abroad? Probably permanently. With your fat little nephew who might starve for want of auntie kisses?
My computer sounds like a cow in labor. Pretty sure that’s not normal.
Dishwasher broke. Feels like it took forever to wash dishes and yet somehow I managed to clean up for the night way before I usually do. Maybe washing dishes by hand causes a time warp.
Really, really want to build this. And then go somewhere. Anywhere as long as it isn’t here.
Worried that I won’t get enough chubby toe gazing in before my baby’s feet turn into my husband’s. Or mine. She’s two in a half, how much more time do I have?
Was asked to be at a friend’s birth. Was excited. NOW AM PANICKING. She thinks I know something about having babies?
Guffawing word: HUMANURE!
And lastly, trying to be good. Do good. See good.
Deep into January and perhaps suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder, what are you thinking of?
