I drove for the first time since the storm today and holycrap how ignorant and stupid I felt driving past these huge trees that were thrown around like matches, laying on the ground. I had such an incredible aha moment like the storm was for real and it did happen right here. We have some very fortunate asses – that’s all.
Our little family held hands before the dinner tonight and even with our hard-to-label religiosity, it was very grounding and meaningful.
Electricity, heat, running water and a roof above our heads. Food is great too.
We are so goddamn lucky.
Trying to distract my 3 year old from getting into trouble: “Come here, wanna pet the dog?”
“YES! Her feathers are so nice and soft.”
Every year I do the same dance around ordering holiday cards: ooh-ing and aah-ing over the designs, wrestling kids to stand a second in front of the camera “Hold still, don’t put that in your mouth”, wrestling those pictures into stupid preset frames that are all horizontal when I shot everything like a portrait (when will I learn?), collecting coupons for printing so I overpay only a little bit but never before have I ordered cards in November. I feel high right now.
“Spider” Monday – you know, the Monday after Thanksgiving
I can’t believe I fell for it
Shopping on the web
Caught like a stupid fly
At least I’m not in debt
Shush, it totally rhymes in my head. – oh crap –
I made it past 10pm, let’s go bed. This time I may even sleep.
It’s like 8th grade all over again. Except for the wine. We drank beer then. But there will be a lot of profanities and sex talk. Who knows? We started high-five-ing already.
Baby meeting the most docile dog of upper Fairfield county. “Hai dog. Nice to meet- OhNOM NOMNOM”
