Give us the eye!!
(If you can name the movie that is from, you will seriously impress me. Mainly because you will be as much of a geek as I am, which is hard to do.)
You ever have one of those days when everything is calm and settled?
I am having one today. The bills are all paid, the kids are all healthy, the house is fairly clean, my case is mostly finished, there aren’t any horrible errands to run or chores to do. I am in a lull.
I am liking the lull.
There are small things of course, Otter is teething again, so the poor baby wanders around, occasionally crying and pouring oceans of drool all over the place. Monkey is still convinced she can not listen until I have told her to go to Time Out and still somehow avoid Time Out (this results in many trips to her room). I still have to dot the i’s and cross the t’s in the settlement agreement.
However, there is no huge deadline lurking over my head, no giant bill that I can’t quite afford to pay. It’s just, mellow.
The best of all? My Daddy will be here in four days! I will have nine delicious days of Daddy visits. Monkey, Lee, and I are all so excited to see him! We are taking a trip into the city to see Spamalot together (my treat for a change), and we are going to drive up to West Point and tour his Vietnam Digs. Most importantly, we will have conversation over coconut donuts and black coffee at the Dunkin Donuts. It will be really nice to have some solid Kvetch time with him, he is one of my very best friends and advisers and I have missed talking life over with him more than just about anything else since moving so far away.
Well, I am going to pour another cup of coffee, and maybe sit and read while the calm lasts. Parenthood seems to be the eternal hurricane, so I should enjoy having the eye pass over my head, before the wind picks up again.
