The Longest Day

I have had only a few hours sleep... maybe 5?... since Monday morning. I can always tell when I have been up too long, because everything just seems to go wrong.

This morning, I somehow managed to stab myself in the chest with the plug for the electric mixer at work.

I am impatient with Little Sprout, and she has chosen today of all days to watch a really stupid "Christmas Classics" movie on Netflix.

Our fish are dying by the handful. Not my fault.

I think I have stubbed the same toe 3 times today.

Yeah, sleep is good.

The sun is shining, and the snow keeps melting, but I am afraid there will still be drifts in my yard in July. This was a snowy year for us, and it seems that I will be staring out my windows at a dirty white landscape forever. My hands are itching to get in the dirt, and I am terribly frustrated that I can't. Well, I could. I would just have to shovel a few feet of snow first. And it wouldn't be comfortable if I did, since the ground is still frozen.

On the other hand, this past weekend I went out with a couple girlfriends from High School and had my very first Indian Food. The food was actually pretty good! And the company, of course, was excellent. We ended up chatting for quite a while at the restaurant, then heading over to a local book store.

While I was out reviving a mostly dead social life, Uncle Wolfie took the Sprouts for the day. They went to a movie, lunch, and even squeezed just a little bit of rock climbing in. Little Sprout came home so excited from her day... it took us hours to calm her down! I don't think Big Sprout and Uncle Wolfie will be taking her along often, though. It sounded like she was a pretty big pain in the backside the whole time. Poor Wolfie looked downright exhausted when he dropped them off!

Mostly, life is just bumping along here at the Barefoot Manor. I am looking forward to the end of the school year, when Big Sprout will be available to help out more around the house and with Little Sprout.

~and that's all I have to say about that~
