Sweets is the most adorable creature ever to roll over on the face of this earth. I breathe him in, and subsequently exhale butterflies and unicorns. I revel in his very existence.
I would, however, enjoy sleeping more than one and a half hours at a stretch.
There was a class in college that wasn't really a for-credit class, but if you were a music ed major, you had to go or else things would get really ugly. I don't even remember what it was called, but every.last.music ed major had to go. Sometimes we'd play BAND, sometimes we'd play CHOIR, and sometimes we'd play ORCHESTRA. Upperclassmen would take turns conducting whichever pitiful ensemble we'd concocted; I say pitiful because nobody was honking away on their major instruments.
Once when it was my turn to conduct, I went up to the podium and waved my baton and picked on the flutes, and did the other band director-ish things one does when one stands upon a podium. I was thinking really hard, and as a filler, whilst wrapping up my thoughts in my head and starting to speak all at the same time, I would start my sentences by saying OKAY.
At the end of my turn, there was a little critique-by-peers session. One girl, a clarinet major named Linda, said, You keep saying 'okay'. Everything's not okay.
Three years later, she was found dead in her apartment. She had hung herself. Her words still ring in my ears.
I made spaghetti sauce tonight from some of the tomatoes we canned. Today's version had onions, garlic, a green pepper, honey, thyme, oregano and basil. And also a really ridiculous amount of ground beef. I am craving beef like crazy. I will personally deliver a punch in the mouth to the person who asks if I'm pregnant.
Wee Man and HB really enjoy preschool. HB tells us he HATES!!!!! IT!!!! but his teachers swear he plays and laughs and cavorts and does all the stuff normal, happy children do when they like school.
We are going on a field trip to the apple orchard tomorrow. This means: CIDER!!! and DONUTS!!!! And also a 75% chance of rain and a high wind warning. Which means 100% chance that I'll be wearing my knee-high black wellies with white polka dots, and long underwear.
The Mister was named Employee of the Month at his workplace. So I bought him a slice of raspberry pie at the farmers' market today, and delivered it to said workplace to show my appreciation.
I was not named Employee of the Month at my workplace. So I bought myself a loaf of pizza bread at the farmers' market, and ate it on the way home from the farmers' market to show my appreciation.
I still have not seen the latest Harry Potter movie. And it grieves me.
That is all.
