Right Now

- I am feeling a little like writing.  So I am forcing myself.  Hoping it will get easier.
- my bedroom floor needs to be vacuumed.  Badly.  But, the floor is clear enough that I can see that it does need to be vacuumed, so that is a bonus.
- I smell wet dog.  I see wet dog.  I don't mind wet dog.
- it's raining out.  Hence the wet dog.
- I have a Bob Seger song in my head.  I love this song.  I like it, right where it is.  It can stay there a while.
- I am wishing there were more episodes of Freaks and Geeks to watch.  I caught the fever.
- I am hungry.  Starving.  Famished.  I am also back on my program, so I am going to stay that way.  I will probably drink some water soon, and will the hunger away.
- The window is open, and the air feels like fall.
- Geoff is home.  For now.
- The kids are sleeping.  Finally.  I love them, but they exhaust me.
- The house is a mess.  I intended to clean it today, but I got sucked into an hour long bath, and some rare (for me) TV watching.  I actually enjoyed a day off.  Not just from work, but from everything.  Well, not everything.  I was still a mom, but a lazy one today.
- there are crayon wreaths on the table, begging to be finished.  I explained they will be done tomorrow.  They aren't happy with that, but what choice do they have?  They are made of crayons.
- I can see a basket full of toys in the hallway that I want to donate.  I lied to Sawyer and said I was moving them downstairs.  She cried enough over that, i don't know what she would do if I told her the truth.
- I am already thinking about Thanksgiving dinner.  I can't wait.  Seriously.
- Still singing Bob Seger.
- My feet are cold.  The tips of my fingers and my nose are cold.  I don't mind.  The window is staying open.

The N stands for "new post, finally."


  1. Demand respect from those damn crayons!

  2. We've got tomorrow, who needs tonight...

    1. LOL....thanks for that. Now I am singing ANOTHER Bob Seger song. It was actually "Accompany Me". It was in an episode of Freaks and Geeks that I watched today, and it is my favourite song by him anyway. So I like singing it in my head.

  3. A long bath and some TV sounds like a wonderful day off. Not my personal choice, but it does sound like it did you some good.

    Welcome back to blogging, dear!

    1. Hey!! thanks for the welcome! I know it's been a while, I will blog about that too, eventually!! Hope all is well in your little world, and of course, thanks for commenting and checking out mine!! :)

  4. - Damn demanding crayons.

    - Personally, I like "Night Moves" a lot. But hey, that growly voice could sing anything and it would be sexy.

    - Sounds like you had a great day off...that's the way to do it!

    1. Night Moves is pretty awesome. Really, when you go with Seger, you just can't go wrong. :)
