I'm really taken with this piece. I think it's fascinating not only for what it says about marriage, but also for what it says about those of us at midlife. Read it and discuss...if I can find a Starbucks along the way, I'll join in.
Trip? Oh, yes - Larry's outside, trying to pack the car. And I'm inside, goofing off. I ran up and down the stairs approximately 1700 times yesterday, packing and doing laundry and being generally disorganized. When I wasn't running up and down the stairs, I was feeding children and bathing children and sorting knitting...
I deserve this break and no one's gonna guilt me out of it.
Our neighbor (the one whose cartop carrier we're using) offered to lend us a portable TV/DVD player for the car. We turned her down. I have a feeling we're going to regret that particular piece of stupidity around about 4 hours from now.
I checked the weather report for up north. It's ridiculous. "Sunny and pleasant"...."Beautiful"...."Cool and breezy"....who writes these things? We don't have those sort of days here. We have "hot"..."humid and hot"....and (one memorable August) "HOT!"
The word "hot" doesn't look right - is it English?
Lord help us, I think we're ready to shove off here. Pray for us.
