Excuses just for the hell of it.
Well, I’ll be damned. There was no Haiku Friday post here today. I have to admit that I was planning on writing one on Thursday night, but then I got completely sidetracked by this post and then totally shit-kicked (in a good way) by this one. Both are thought-provoking, exceptionally good reads, both in body and comments.
So, basically, you can blame Loralee and Catherine for my lack of Haiku Friday post. (Because I know you were just sobbing and clawing at your face today because your life felt empty when you realized there was no Sarcastic Mom Haiku Friday post.)
Oh, and today (Friday) we actually exercised (OH, HELL. ALERT THE NEWS). We hit the Brentwood YMCA (love that facility) and Braden had a super fab time in the nursery with other kiddos his age while John and I sweated like fat pigs on the treadmills.
I checked out the pools and the smell was so wonderful. Yes, I know that sounds weird. I used to swim a lot, and haven’t done it seriously in a long time. Guess what I’m planning on taking up again immediately? Momma’s gonna build her Aqua Lungs again. Watch out.
And even on a kind of gloomy, off-and-on-again rainy day? We found joy. Braden got to paint for the first time ever. I promise to show you more on that topic soon. Cute as hell, I tell you.
I did post another article over at Examiner on Thursday night – it’s about Earth Hour. Do you know about that? If you don’t, check it out, and make plans in your area.
And if you’re having a hard time thinking of things to do in the dark for an hour, boy have I got some suggestions for you.
