Every Day...




  • Recently, for some reason, she likes my hairbrush more than the three (3!) other brushes she has.  (Mine is a round brush).  Yesterday morning, I knew she would be asking for it--I lightly tossed it down the stairs.  And it bounced.  And the handle broke off of it.  I was a bit frustrated at that...but, she looked up at me, I looked at her...and we both laughed.  This morning, she said "remember when you threw your brush down and it broke? that was hillarious!"  (She pronounces it like HILLllllaaaarioussss).  Guess we both need new (round) brushes!

  • The other evening, I took him out to drive.  I forgot my cell phone.  I also forgot how much patience is required for a first time driver.  I did fine. He did fine...he also was in a good mood. Which means that while he unsteadily drives around a block for a few times, he is randomly stating story titles from the Scary Stories collection.  As my stomach goes into my throat, as he almost runs over a curb and narrowly misses a parked car.  I patiently, softly, point out that he should be paying attention.  He says he is.  (I think he is, actually).  I wish I hadn't forgotten my cell phone....and then we are done and I drive us home.

  • Monday is our wedding anniversary...24 years! Its amazing how long and how short that feels. We have been having a very hectic 2017 so far, lots of work and worry for both of us.  We are a great team together--but it means sometimes, especially with our kids, we don't always have time for each other.  I am so lucky that he is such a great father to our children.  I think we just need to be better about carving out time for ourselves.  Maybe re-instituting a monthly night out...starting this Sunday--anniversary dinner at an Italian restaurant

  • BTVS is 20 years old.  Seriously?  Such an influential show for our family.  She would not be named what she is named without this show.  Well, anniversary present for us--EW magazine with that Buffy photo shoot!  

  • And then there is this:
    From a Buffy convention...a long, long time ago...when CosPlayers were not identified as such...


  • I have paperwork a plenty to fill out and copy, etc. There are summer camps and studies and applications all sorts of things on my plate...and trying to keep my head above water...although I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel...perhaps a good summer ahead....

  • In one of those often occurring instances when the boy is so much like me, but yet he doesn't realize it...his History Fair project is about burial practices throughout history.  (I cannot wait until I can someday really explore my ghoulish side with him again...)
  • Father and son are enjoying watching "Iron Fist" together.  Daughter is watching "I...Zombie", which we haven't seen the second season yet...so that should be interesting...
