Not quite as scenic as the last place I was.
We got home from vacation yesterday at about three. Of course we were thrilled to see that all of our pets were alive (and almost pathetically happy to see us) and that our house hadn’t been burglarized, but I am deep into post-vacation-I-don’t-know-what-to-do-first-syndrome.
So naturally I sat down at my desk, started reading blogs, watched some trashy TV, and joined Facebook. The laundry will be there tomorrow, right? Alex went to a Phish show, so I didn’t even have him to motivate me (“Jean, I’ve set a timer. When it goes off, I need you to move the laundry to the dryer.” It’s like I’m 10 and he’s my dad.)
Okay, I’m back. The timer went off and I had to move the laundry.
Speaking of Facebook, I have always sworn that I wouldn’t ever sign up. I’m completely annoyed that I did. I don’t plan on spending a whole lot of time over there because I just don’t have time to. But moments after requesting that one of my best buddies from high school friend me, I was chatting with him. And it was great and warm and fuzzy.
Also, thanks for this, Facebook:
(And, yes, I promise to write a short post sometime. I’m sorry I’m so damn verbose.)
Especially if the TV is showing The Incredibles.
Here Sam is pretending to be like the wooden badger on the course.
I love that my kid will do things like pantomime being a badger when I ask him to.
At least this time he was on an island, so he can’t get away.
We brought it home with us.
Do you think that stopped them from jumping in the freezing water?
I think you know the answer to that.
