I did it again. I went and saw Pixar’s UP again yesterday afternoon with my kids. We had the grandparents meet us there, and Kid 4 sat on Grandpa’s lap and gave a play-by-play through the first hour. I finally told him to be quiet (because Grandpa certainly wouldn’t).

It’s the hair.
Towels: Boo-hoo, boo-hoo, boo-hoo.
Wonderful Children: Hey, what’s wrong, Towels? Why are you sad?
Towels: We don’t want to live on the floor. We want to go home. (*sniffle*)
Wonderful Children: Oh, don’t worry, Towels. We’ll send you home.
Towels: Thank you, thank you, Wonderful Children. You are so kind.
I love long, specific lists of things I need to accomplish. Because I feel so … accomplished when I’ve crossed them all off. And I do cross. No subtle check-marking for me. Nice, thick line through the job.*
This week is a little bit crazy. Not that it’s anyone’s fault but my own, mind. I’m not blaming circumstance. I could have been well on top of all this work that needs to be done. I just chose to do other things instead. Things like read. And write. And nap in the sun.
Hey, yeah for me. I accomplished a goal today! So, naturally I am sure you want to know all about it.
Today you are fourteen! I can hardly believe it.
