The thing is, sometimes I do things right. Some days I get up early and exercise, shower, and produce hot breakfast all before 6.30, when I wake my beautiful children with my gentle voice and shepherd them to morning devotional.

My ears are ringing.
I’ve been pondering a new story for the last little while. I’ve also been doing a rewrite on a different one, and here and there pausing to do those pesky duties like cooking, cleaning, paying bills, and entertaining my little family.
Matthew just walked in to my room and said, “Hi, Mom. I’m Luke Skywalker, see? Black socks.” He pointed to his feet, which were, in fact, in black socks. And he’s wearing charcoal gray pants and a long-sleeved black T-shirt. But apparently it’s the socks that make the outfit complete. And here I was thinking that Luke Skywalker wore a white tunic and tan pants. Moms don’t know much, apparently.
What is the deal with these Facebook lists? Suddenly Facebook lists seem as common as politician’s tax-fraud confessions. I have, over the past two weeks, been “tagged” in about twenty different lists. “One word” and “25 Things” and “Bucket Lists” and on and on. I have never responded to one, but something about me tells people that I want to read all of their details.
I discovered some good books, purely by accident, at the library(!) this week. My local library is ridiculously sparse, with a heavy lean toward the YA SF/F side. But I found the following books by Hillary McKay: Saffy’s Angel, Indigo’s Star and Permanent Rose. I read the first two during my Monday and Tuesday sick days (those days were totally good for something) and would like to get into Rose today. Family stories, British, funny, fairly clean, and sweet/touching without cheese.
