FOR TODAY: Tuesday February 23, 2010
Outside my window is the same view. The same houses sit surrounded by snow. More snow fell last night but the road is not covered. It actually looks really wet. Maybe the temperature rose over night. The trees are still cold and bare.
I am thinking that I wasn't a very supportive Mommy when Jacek woke me up at 4:15am because two of his burpies (lovies) were lost. In my half a wake mutterings I think I told him that it was silly. Not having or thinking you don't have your security item is not silly to a toddler. It's pretty serious business. I wish I could just be less grumpy at 4:15 in the morning.
I am thankful for music. Music helps me get the words out. Last night I was struggling to put thought into words. I put the headbuds in and turned on Yahoo radio's coffee shop channel. I got another blog post written.
From the kitchen the cupboards and the refrigerator are yelling at me. They too, like the trees are cold and bare. A shopping trip is desperately needed. Darren keeps opening and closing them as if he believes that the next time he opens them something will be in there. That would be way cool if that could actually happen. Teleportation grocery shopping.
I am wearing clothes for the day. Since I was awoken at 4:15 to be BurpieFinder I could not really go back to sleep. When the alarm went off at 6:30 I was up and at 'em. I'm in jeans that fit me nicely and a thrift store find sweater. It's quite a snugly sweater I might add.
I am creating blogs. I have so many posts in my edit file that I overwhelm myself just looking in there. You'd think that I would actually use one of them blogs to post rather then create from scratch another one but you have to write when the mood strikes. I've been wanting to participate in this day book idea for a while now. Isn't this called free writing? When someone gives you a started idea and you finish it with thought?
I am going grocery shopping. Did I mention the look Darren has on his face when I told him teleportation doesn't actually work...no matter how many times you try. I kind of like the clean and simple look the refrigerator has now without all the stuff in there.
I am reading The Dome by Stephen King. I am almost half way through it and it's been and is getting really good. I've had it almost three weeks already. I warned the librarian I'd have it for a long time.
I am hoping that Jacek isn't a tired wreck today. He was up at 7 this morning. He's in his room still because of the eight zero zero rule we have in the house. He's got school today on top of us running out first thing to grocery shop. So, pair all that with no nap. He'll be a tired little boy that's for sure.
I am hearing frozen gurgled chirps from the birds outside. It gives me hope and reminds me that eventually winter will be over....right?
Around the house there are toys. Toys, toys, everywhere. We did not enforce toy pick up last night. I'm not sure why. I barely remember what we had for dinner.
One of my favorite things is conversation with Jacek. He'll ask me now to sit and talk. I love it. Then he'll say, "hmm, what should we talk about?" He'll be 4 in just a few weeks. I was telling my friend that I can't imagine having conversations with Aidan, who's 18 months and just beginning to babble. I know it'll happen but right now I can't believe I'll have another little person to engage with.
A few plans for the rest of the week include story time tomorrow morning at "The Big Library" as Jacek calls it. I think on Thursday we'll probably stay home in the morning and Jacek goes to school in the afternoon. Friday might include us joining playgroup for a bowling date for the kiddos. It sounds like a lot of fun. I don't think we have plans for the weekend, which is actually a very nice plan to have.
Here is the picture for thought I am sharing.

And this is what is outside my porch
