A the days here at the lake come to an end and my life is hanging on the edge of this precipice that is otherwise known as "The Move to England".... random thoughts are almost all I am capable of. I will not be posting much for the next couple weeks, as I get packing for the flight over and then get am getting settled at our new house. Like any good addict, though, I will be online as much as I can and will try and post short updates, if nothing else. :)
Now--- on to the random thoughts!!
Baby cankles. Don't you just want to eat them up? I saw some kid with them at the park and went home to immediately go through all my photos from Destructo's first year of life- just so I could find this picture and relish those meaty little legs that he used to stumble around on. God, he was such a deliciously fat little baby. If it hadn't been so back-breaking, I would've carried him around cuddling him all the time. ;)
Last night I sat in a lawn chair and watched my three boys and a friend swim, squeal, laugh, push each other off the dock, and jump on and off a floating inner-tube about a 100 times apiece, all in the fading light of dusk. I alternated between laughing, crying, annoyance, and some kind of serenity.
Sometimes things in the house and car start to get so sticky (from the filthy kids) that I feel like my hands are turning into a frog's and I will be able to climb up the wall and onto the ceiling.
I blew up a balloon for the Animal yesterday and he made up a game where he throws it in the air and then runs around screaming in the highest register of his voice until it hits the ground. That's really fun. If you like nails being scraped across your brain.
Speaking of nails being scraped.... I am finally going to post a video of me doing the karaoke thing. Only, you know, not really the real karaoke thing, because I am taping it here on my sleeping porch. At 11 in the morning. But, all the same, I bagged out of the karaoke at BlogHer and after all my smack talk about loving it so much, I feel like I need to just put it out there. My voice is a little rough *cough, cough* so forgive me if I am pitchy. Yeah. I said "pitchy," just like Randy Jackson does on American Idol. Meh. Bite me.
Also, my new twitter friend, Karl from Second Hand Karl, posted a .wav file of him singing Creep by Radiohead and, of course, I opened my big mouth and said, "Oh, oh, me too, me too!!" So here is my fulfillment of that promise to post me singing and making an ass of myself in broad daylight. (And I know what you're thinking: How is this different from any other day? )
That sound? My dignity. Wimpering in the corner....
