As dark as night, night, night. With apologies to Mr. Joel, I had forgotten how dark and how quickly it gets that way this far North.
How dark you ask? Well, if you blink, you've missed the sunset, if a group of seniors are playing a round of golf in front of you, forget finishing, and if you can't wait to get the kids to bed at night so you can relax, lie to them, cuz they can't tell time anyhow. Well, at least the little ones, and then I just have to bribe Baylie not to blab.
On top of Daylight Savings Time hitting here a week earlier than we thought, throwing our entire weekend out of whack, Baylie is on "half-term." Basically a fall break, but I am not sure from what, because I am not seeing a whole lot of anything school work wise. So she is bored, its too cold and wet to play outside and Lace is gone, so she and I drive 50-60 minutes round trip in the mornings in traffic and the same in th eevening. If we weren't paying so dang much for the care, I would just keep the little 'uns home as well. Maybe not good idea, considering that Rian was too impatient this weekend to wait for her promised "make-up" party, so she decided to give the NEW chair a make-over. Lipstick, nail polish and concealer leave marks in case anyone is wondering.
We are heading on our first holiday--vacation for us regular English speakers--and we let the kids pick. Bright idea. Now we are headed to Nottingham and Sherwood Forest to prove to Rian that Disney lies to kids. Should be a grand time. Wonder if I can pay some local down on their luck girls to dress up and pretend to be princesses? Better not, probably get arrested for solicitation. I don't want that, I want to get deported, NOT arrested.
And when we get back next Monday I get to prepare for "Tuesday of Pain." Which is to say that I'll need to work out after the break and I am getting the newest tattoo. Said to take four hours, this could be trouble; probably more for Leasea, who'll be greasing and lotioning my back for several days. And we all know how much she hates touching me...
Sorry such a long lay-off, try to do better!
