Wednesday Whining - Super Tuesday Edition

Election Day hereabouts tomorrow. Today there's a huge rally I'm not going to (have car-line duty for Muffin Man's after-rehearsal pick-up), and in any case, I'm gonna sit out huge political rallies this year unless I get to meet the candidate. I'm getting too curmudgeonly to be one of thousands pressed too tightly together for too long.

I am, however, going to activist rallies, and we've got a big one on Wednesday at the Supreme Court. I'm putting a bus together, and it's looking like it's going to be very successful!!

What's on your agenda this week?

Night Owls & Early Birds & Their Mamas All Whining

Yep. Mini is a certified Night Owl, complete with "I don't want to get up. I'm tired. I'm going back to sleep."

And Sweet is a certified Early Bird. At least she has good sleep habits.

If you're doing the math, all of that means that Mama is caught staying up too late and getting up too early.

How are the Pixies?

Valentine's Day:

Discuss.  We never have done anything fancy.  I don't get it when I hear jewelry commercials -- why would that be important to a celebration of love?  Flowers, I'll accept, though, because they make me happy.

True story:  35 years ago I was busy on Valentine's day, but saw my new boyfriend [current beloved] the next day.  And he brought two little bouquets of flowers he had picked, "one for today and one for yesterday."  Cute, no?

This week:  albatross.  Hoping to make progress in the next 10 days.

Old business:  Oh, Esperanza.  Not the plague!

What's new?

Light at the End of the Tunnel Whining

Yes, Pixies, there is light at the end of my tunnel: great progress on the Lice Incident of 2016, a week with not much on the calendar, delightful weather over the weekend, and--miracle of miracles--Baboos who decided to color with their extra (!) time this morning, rather than begging me for 5 minutes of screen time.

However. Next week is going to be a doozy. Just warning you (and me) now.

How are things shaping up for you?
