Is it Friday already? The summer is speeding by. Maybe that’s why it is so hot….the world is moving too fast.
Another question: If I am so busy, why does it seem like I am not getting much done?
I am blaming James’ law school. His finals this week have me taking care of everything in the house by myself. It’s been worse than tax season. No husband. No one to ramble on to about nothing and get all of my daily words out with. I mean really, shouldn’t that be his first priority? Listening to me talk about nothing for long periods of time?
Usually James and I have a date on Friday night. He informed me yesterday that his brain would be fried tonight and he would prefer I have a nice dinner for him at home. We could watch a movie and just eat in our recliners. How lovely. He also allowed me to drive to Sonic yesterday for him since he was studying and apparently couldn’t continue without a cherry slush. And while I hate to make it look like my life is dangerously close to perfection, I got myself some crushed ice while I was there.
Yesterday I rode in the car with Jacob for about an hour. I thought about using some of my words on him, but that would be lost on Jacob. At one point he told me that he was learning a new computer language….he already knows 2. I listened for a while, then suggested he might make a little time in his schedule to learn human languages. Like maybe he could learn what it is like to have emotions so that when he gets a wife he will have a clue what is happening when she starts crying over nothing. He informed me that he has emotions, they are just under control, like Spock (raising one eyebrow as he spoke). I just grinned that mother-grin that says it all, “You know nothing my child.”
I think we will just chill out on Saturday. Lemonade, air-conditioning, swimming pools, movie stars….
What do you have planned for the weekend?
