So, in the past week I've been
To Washington DC on the 22nd
Back to NC the 23rd
All over my county on the 31st
To DC on the 1st
Back to NC today
In between there were a couple of holidays .....
Oh yes, Christmas. That was, erm, a week ago now and I can't remember it anymore, except to say that there's still an enormous pile of pine needles in the living room that choked the vacuum as we were cleaning up before the second trip north and was left on the floor looking all forlorn and disappointed. The vacuum, not the pine needle pile. I'm sure the dogsitter must think I'm "off me nut" to leave the house that way, but we simply ran out of time to get everything done before leaving.
And New Year's eve. Which rocked, because we found out there was a Monty Python's Flying Circus marathon on and had to watch (with the kids, natch), and consequently didn't have to watch more than about 3 seconds of some random ball-dropping to know it was 2006. I didn't realize the folks in the state capitol put on a little bit more pastoral celebration, with a "giant acorn drop" at the correct hour and minute......how very quaint!
But right now that's all that my brain can conjure up as something along the lines of happy memory-ville, because I've had FAR too much driving, much too little sleep, and have developed one of those throbbing tension headaches that alMOST goes away, but then comes pounding back just as you think you're rid of it, and with the kiddies gone for a couple of weeks I'm going to immerse myself in the sheets and not MOVE until tomorrow morning.
Yes, it's only 8:30, but 10 days sharing a double bed with someone is not fun, no matter how much you might love them, and its even LESS fun if they're a dreamworld judo master.
Here's to wondrous things occurring in ought six, y'all!
