I'm in the midst of post vacation let down. I've always been horrible at closure and transitions. I hate finality; of things ending. I've cried myself to sleep for the past 3 Christmas nights. When I was young I cried when my cousins went home after a stay at our house. And the first week of school I missed my mom and family so much it hurt. Just thinking of things ending fills me with sad nostalgia. Here I go, getting sad just writing about this.
After four weeks of sparse posting I've been desperate to find an interesting subject or incident to write about. But this post vacation let down has made for a rather dull week. So rather than wait for some excitement to come my way, I'm just going to completely bore you with some mundane trivialities.
1) Spouse is sure he (we) have Giardia or some other water-related parasite. I did a bit of research on the subject and decided that I'm unwilling to turn in a "stool sample" just to undergo the tortuous treatment needed to get rid of the parasite. I'll just have the Big D for 6 weeks thank you very much.
2) School starts August 4th. Well, one school does. For all those holding their breaths waiting for my final decision, keep holding on because I'm still undecided. Currently, we are enrolled in two schools and one online homeschool program. Tick tick tick, the countdown to my daughter's doom is imminent.
3) This week we've been enjoying the by-products of hanging out with cousins for a month. #2) It's not fair! #1) I can't stand it! #2) Neener neener neener. #1) Rubber butt! Me) SHUT UP!
4) How much TV/movies/wii can a child watch in a week before turning into a vegetable? This week we are out to set new records. 223 hours and counting and they are still breathing. Speaking of TV, So You Think You Can Dance is going to be starting soon (no DV-R in this house! we'll get cell phones first) - better cut this short.
