I was nearly delirious with the freedom a 7:30 bedtime brings when The Boy suddenly reminded me he was student of the week and we had to fill out a bunch of 3x5 survey cards and find recent pictures of the family/his pets/himself.

I lunged after her but had shut the door on my scarf and got stopped like a bad dog on a leash… tragedy was only averted through a surprisingly sturdy inch of the fuzzy stuff on the edge of her hood.
~ The Boy was horrifically, negligently overdue for a dentist appointment. I called to schedule it and made a crack getting in before Social Services showed up. The lady was not amused, “Mmm-hmmm.” I take my childrens’ dental health seriously. I do. But please see above – I’m lucky if I show up to work with shoes.
