Some Things That Happened Here Today

The boys were so good today. So very good. Owen had one moment of almost-having-a-melt-down but it got diffused and we ended up with a nice back-scratching and a laugh. Gibson took a nap. I got three loads of laundry done and chili made and in the crock pot and all the dishes caught up with and played with the boys and even danced some with them.
So it was a really fine day.

Boppy came home early and he and Owen worked on the play set thing for awhile until Owen came in and said, "Too much poop out there. Chicken poop, dog poop, bird poop. And mud."
He's going through a poop aversion thing.
"Did it make you just want to poop too?" I asked him.
"No!" he said.

Spirits were bright and the sun came out and now I'm as tired as I can be and am going to go to bed as soon as is reasonably possible.
Just got to get through that appointment tomorrow. That's all. Just get through it. And then...then? Maybe I'll be able to relax.

Golly, tomorrow is Valentine's Day, isn't it?
Mr. Moon said tonight while we were eating our chili, "So do you want to go out to eat tomorrow night?"
I looked at him like he'd just fallen off the turnip truck.
"Have you made reservations somewhere?"
He allowed as how he had not.

Oh well. We'll do...something. Maybe I'll put a drop of cherry juice in our martinis.

That's enough, right?

Bed. Soon.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. I just wrote the loveliest comment and blogger ate it! Got dandruff some of it itches!!! (Read that fast. It will make more sense.)
    Anyway, basically I said that tomorrow is out of your hands and all you really have control over is the size of the martini you're going to have when it's all over.
    If blogger eats this, I'm going to lose it.

  2. Cherry juice in a martini is pretty much how I'll be spending my valentines day too :) Although maybe with a cat.

    Love you! Let me know how it goes tomorrow.

  3. thinking of you. sending red peonies in a wide mouth mason jar.

  4. I'll be thinking about you tonight while you sleep and in the morning in MY sleep, hoping that your meeting is a non-event and that you sail through it without too much anxiety. Love you.

  5. "Too much poop out there" -- LOL! God knows I feel that way sometimes.

  6. I am glad that you boys can break thru the anxiety with enough clarity to function. That is how I am with work. I hope your test result call backs are nothing serious and you can try to get some proper med for your anxiety, even for a short while. I wish for a break for you and for some lightness of being and lack of suffering and for you not to think that a chemical lack in your brain makes you crazy. If you are, you are you are the sanest craziest most lovable person around. Sweet Jo

  7. Heartinhand- So true. So very true. And as always, you brought a smile to my face.

    SJ- Will do.

    Bethany- What a gorgeous image! Thank-you, precious.

    Elizabeth- Your lips to god's ears. ALWAYS!
    Thank you. I hope your sleep is better than mine was.

    Steve Reed- It's sort of an existential problem when you think about it.

    Sweet Jo- I do think I am going to ask for a prescription today. This has gone on too long and I'm really, really tired of it. You have no idea how sweetly your words touch me. I am always grateful for you.

  8. There is a lot of poop out there. And it is everywhere.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
