Today…

Today was a mixed bag. A real mixed bag. I thought we might be barf free today but no such luck. We had one or two more barf bouts this morning. But since then it’s been relatively barfless.

And you know, I don’t know if a whole bucket of barf could have ruined what turned out to be our very first truly warm day of the year. We topped off today at right around 80 degrees Fahrenheit and it. was. perfection. I watered flowers and admired all of the new growth that happens each day now. Very soon I should be seeing actual blooms and I simply cannot wait. When your world is colorless for 6 months out of the year you just about squeal with delight when you see the earth coming back to life again.

And to top off that wonderfulness I went and got a haircut today. I really don’t know what it is about a haircut that just makes me feel fresh and new and lovely and spunky. But it just does. (I took a new picture which is up as my new profile pic.) :^) When you feel frazzled and exhausted and worn down and emotionally the size of a wild blueberry, I tell ya… a haircut is just the thing for a pick-me-up. Of course if you feel frazzled and worn down 9 days out of 10, I don’t recommend getting a haircut every time you turn around. Things could get ugly real quick.

Today my little boy (you know, the future doctor?) came and handed me a binder that he put together yesterday and this morning. You see, he’s been reading The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy over the past few months and yesterday he decided that he was going to write a book in a similar vein. You can see the progress he’s made up to this point…

(Identabits are very similar to Hobbits, apparently, but they are all born with identical twins.)

Apparently I need to buy the boy some more lined paper. He makes me so proud though.

What did you do today?

  10. He is so creative! What an imagination! 😉

  11. I think we are leading parallel lives. I a) recently got a new haircut, although I think mine makes me look old and overly corporate and yours seems very nice in a picture and b) have exploited my own daughter’s writing in a post as recently.

    Your son has a great imagination. Maybe he’ll be the next Tolkien himself!
