Hello, new week!

W:  This is going to be another day when we wish there was air conditioning.  Last night, it was still 80F in the house at midnight, with all fans running!  Supposed to be hotter today.  AW:  My beloved nighttime fog will return tomorrow.

W:  Unfortunately, it is also another day when the UPS guy says he's coming.  I'm really going to be cranky-pants if he stands me up again.  Not sure why they didn't attempt delivery on Saturday, when my beloved could have sat here waiting.

AW:  There's enough leftover BBQ from last night that we need not worry about cooking!

What's new at your place?

Staring Blankly at the Wall Edition

It's Monday; Li'l E is at preschool, and I am at home. It was a rocky morning, getting her ready (worsened by the headache she has, after she fell off the potty last night, and hit her head on a wooden stool: no signs of concussion so far, but her head is sore, and she's a bit cranky). She was already in a mood yesterday, and cried about: wanting to take home an electric billboard, and put it in our living room in the place of our TV; not wanting to take off her outside shoes when she was inside; the fact that the jewel sticker that she'd just put on her stuffed kitty's nose would someday fall off; that she was too tired to eat pizza (no kidding, kid). But she was cheerful when I got her to school, and now that I've hauled a thousand pounds of playdough with us on our walk to school (I did it, you guys! I made all the playdough for the preschoolers!), I'm going to spend this precious hour and a half sitting very quietly, with my feet at, staring at the wall. (Okay, I'm also making banana bread for future preschool snacks, but it's in the oven now, and I definitely won't do any more work while E is away.)

How are you all doing?

I Am Not in Paris Whining

W: Three "grown up" parties over the weekend have left me pretty tired. (The Baboos have named them "grown up" parties aka "boring."

AW: The final of the three was for my people rather than Mr. E's, so I enjoyed it very much. But still, introvert overload.

AW: A tiny nap this morning

W: I do not seem to be on a wonderful and fulfilling trip right now. :)

What are your whines, pixies?

Labor day; back to school; adventures all around!

What's happening at your place?

We're taking off on Thursday.  Starting to get excited!  Junior cat must be picking up on the vibes, because she's been getting into all kinds of trouble, and eating roughly her body weight in kibble every day.
