I figured out how to wash my face with hot water. I AM a fucking genius, y'all. I now wash my face in the bathroom right off the kitchen which is approximately three feet from the hot water heater.
Ten years it's taken me to figure this one out.
I was in such a good mood yesterday that it was almost sickening. They boys were in good moods too and that always works out well. Owen is becoming the most charming bullshitter in the world.
"Mer, you are the best Mer in the world!"
"Yes, I know."
"I love you so much. And you're so pretty."
"Really? What makes me so pretty?"
"You just are!"
Well, I'm not looking any gift horses in the mouth and I'll take whatever sweetness I can get.
I've had a bowl of oat bran cereal with apples and raisins and now I believe I shall take a walk. I hope no one tries to kill me today. I'm still thinking about that- how the woman just kept right on going after she almost hit me yesterday, didn't even slow down. I'm planning on going to town to go to Costco with Lily and this afternoon I sincerely want to work in the yard. Time of year to trim stuff up and haul it to the edge of the woods. Leave more room for the camellias which are swelling at the bud like a tribe of fertile women's bellies. I swear to you- I have not spent nearly enough time here at home lately and when did you ever hear me say that? Well, it's a busy life, even for someone like me who doesn't actually have much of a life, just this little one and I honestly think that if I get in the garden I might have some greens this winter.
Oh boy. I might even buy new slippers today.
The excitement never ends.
