Quite Full

I am so completely depleted of energy right now. This past weekend was a series of ups and downs, highs and lows. Emotional and physical.

One of my most poignant revelations is that I am not as good as a mother as I would like to believe. This is not for lack of trying, but more for lack of energy.

My second most notable revelation is that E makes a bitchin chili. Better than mine in fact, and I am not afraid to admit this. It doesn't help though whenever they come over for dinner, my recipes turn out all wrong. Perhaps I am trying too hard.

This past weekend was very food oriented.

Friday evening we attended a Harvest party in which we feasted on many Hobbit-like recipes. I left overstuffed and pleasantly satiated, even if I did pass on the mushroom pie. I don't do fungus.

Today after church we spent a nice afternoon at B & E's. Again, her chili rocks. So much so, that I could have fallen asleep on their couch had it not been for an overactive three year old.

I'm about to go change into something extremely comfortable and less binding, make some tea, and curl up with my book. There is so much to do tomorrow, thankfully it is a few dreams away between now and then.

I'll probably fall asleep before the steam curls disappear.

Hobbit food sounds good.

I've been meaning to talk to you about your mothering skills. I see you've arrived at this all alone, so I'll leave it at that.

Hello, kassi.

secret word: yjaishtd (uh... Hobbit food?)

Pajama bottoms are the best in the non-binding department, unless you count "naked." My friend Lorraine makes better chili than me, too, even though I use her recipe. It's too exhausting to care about this anymore... I'm sorry you had a rather emotional weekend - raising kids is the hardest thing you'll ever do and if you're at ALL a caring parent you'll probably feel like you're failing them half the time. Because you are. But that's okay. When my kids were younger I spent most of my waking hours pleading with God to fill in the gaps and I think he did. They're all taller, deeper-voiced and hairier than me now, and they're turning out pretty decent, which makes me happy and frankly, a little shocked. I have a feeling you have nothing to worry about. xo

Curling in bed and reading a book that has not been assigned sounds like a heaven I can only dream about but can never enter. So thanks a lot for making me jealous - darn you and your whole, "done with school" bit.

Enjoy it (mutter,mutter).

Scott: Thank you for keeping me on track...

Kelly: pajama pants rock. I have asked for more of these articles of clothing for Christmas.

AfricaB: You too will have the dilemma of being delightfully too tired to read a non school related book.
