:: Am I the only person who hears someone talking in an accent and unintentionally starts to mimic it?
Even when reading books... like the one I'm loving right now, I start using words like "tarnation/ gracious me/ whereupon/ forsooth".
(Maybe I share a mockingbird's instinct?)
:: The house is warm with fresh bread (that my Ben made) and chocolate chip banana muffins that I baked right afterwards... (I was seeking a 'vehicle' for the chocolate chips other than my hand-to-mouth standby).
:: The kids have been sickly this weekend... (right on the heels of me remarking how they've been healthy for so long!... I'll keep my big mouth shut next time).
:: Oh, and guess what?! Our 6.5 month Hudson finally slept through the night last night!!!
(Can you tell I'm happy?) Seriously... it was getting stupid.crazy around here. I kept trying to get him to 'graduate' to sharing a room with Azriel, since keeping him with us meant waking up every few hours to 'nurse-him-back-to-silence'.
The brainwave this past weekend was to put him in the other room and bring the good sleeper Azriel into ours.
We just may know what sleep/sanity looks like again around here.
:: Tomorrow is the big back-to-school hype... which has me thinking about what on earth we plan to do with our kids in the future (still on the fence about variations of home-schooling vs. school systems).
:: Sometimes I wish I was more high-tech... or could at least read computer code, so that I could make desired changes with this blog. Arghh.
:: The house is quiet again, the crickets are chirping, time to enjoy a warm muffin with a tall glass of vanilla almond milk... and get back to the swamp!
thanks for being here.
