Rainy, today, though still hot and therefore muggy as hell outside. A nice thunderstorm as I was waking up this morning, though, so that was a bright spot. We need the rain. May was dry here, very dry, and my garden is loving all this moisture. The kids, however, are another story.
Not much to be said for yesterday. We rented a couple of movies, Avatar and the newest Alice in Wonderland. Katie loved them both. Brandon refused to watch either. Halfway through Avatar, Katie asked if I would braid her hair in little dreds. I ended up doing just one on either side of her face, but she loved it. She has such a vivid imagination, that magical ability to put herself inside another world. I think it will probably end up being both a blessing and a curse as she gets older. Still, I’m glad she has it. I’d much prefer raising dreamers to cold, hard realists any day.
The fatigue took me again around 3pm, and I slept till five. No words written. Even as I write this, my limbs are heavy and I have to fight the urge to give in to exhaustion. I’ll take them to the library in a few minutes, and I’ll try to get some work done when we get back. Tonight they must go to their father’s house, so it will just be me, the fetus, and the LOML this weekend. No plans yet, but maybe that’s a good thing.
After the cut, a short video I saw on Neatorama a few days ago. I posted it on Facebook, but I wanted to add it here as well. It’s short, only five minutes, but grab a box of tissues, because you’ll need ‘em.
