Feeling a bit under the weather, I lay on the couch. She is playing with her toys; he is playing a video game on the computer. I drift off to sleep. She comes up to me and explains the hair on her ponies and how she is arranging it. I close my eyes again. He points me to a part of the game he is working on and I look up to watch. And I close my eyes again--warm and happy at the life and family around me.
(It did also help that we had a snow plow do most of our hard labor!!)
(Which is good, cuz oiur snowblower is broken and Chewy has Golfer's Elbow.)
Later, we have oreos and hot chocolate and watch a movie.
Life. It’s a funny thing. It’s also messy. And frustrating. And every disgusting, wonderful, exciting, torturous thing in between. Musings from a Sci-Fi Geek about life after Secondary Infertility with her husband (perpetual slob, life partner, friend, nemesis, fellow geek), her son (geeky, High Functioning Aspergers challenged, teen, video-game hogging, wisecracker), and her BTVS named daughter (hard fought IVF/ICSI sibling, giggle-puss, Girly-but-maybe-we-can-help-her-find-the-Geek-inside, cat torturer, and all around cutie-pie).
Guest appearances by our pets: Kif, Delenn and Lennier- the cats; Congo, the turtle; and Introducing...Phoebe the hamster!
