so i'm going to clean out/up my garage and office this morning.
which is kind of stupid after the week i've had.
which was the worst week i've had in over a year.
but moderation be damned.
(i've been very good at moderation this year)
i'm irritated at my body.
and feel no need to protect it this morning.
so, i may feel stupid and miserable later,
but at least my garage and office will be cleaned.
okay, have a good day.
peace out from the crazy lady who should spend her day on a couch.

imagine what would happen if all the father's of the world would do this, rather than claim to have their son float away in a hot air balloon. notoriety is everything and all consuming in our culture. and this isn't an overstatement. think of how many teenagers would say they want to be famous when they grow up, rather than be an astronaut, teacher, firefighter... imagine if their fathers and mothers had expanded their world view to be more than the flickering tv in front of their faces or the vibrating phone in their pocket.
ps: this is another of those videos that luke will sit and watch over and over again.

this was last friday.
leaf rubbing and half-hearted writing.
we haven't a learned a thing since.
i mostly spent the weekend laying around and trying to find some oomph.
and then i realized what was wrong and just decided to lay low.
thanks to lindsay and aunt melinda for saving my patootie today.
i needed it.
now, i should go plan something for the kids to learn tomorrow.
but no more leaves for a bit.
i'm getting tired of leaves being tracked all over my house.
i'm thinking new sight words and a bear diorama.
i like dioramas and could care less if the kids do or not,
cause i'll be happy.
i wonder if they've turned all my shoe boxes into robots already?
i've been working on a print
that will hang in our family room.
i wanted the text masculine with a cool blue/beach tone for the house.
i don't know if i have it yet.
if you like it as is, email me and i'll send you a full size file.
all you have to do is have it printed at your local fedex/kinkos on a high quality 8x10 cardstock.
then mat and frame and hang it in your kitchen, bathroom or bedroom.
okay, back to writing.
no more playing to be had.
okay, just one more.
best healthy pancake mix
winco's 10 grain pancake/waffle mix
milled wheat, rye, triticale, oats, corn, barley, soya beans, brown rice, millet, flax seeds...
and not nearly as dense as one would think.
and those that don't live near a winco,
cause i heart winco's bulk food section.
where else would i be able to get 5 lbs of quinoa and 1/2 a lb of pumpkin seeds and 13 varieties of milled flour?
oh, happy girl.
that's me, happy girl.
