It’s been a full week and I’ve finally been able to fully unpack. I won’t be leaving town again until August. I’ll fly off to Tucson then to have my Crone Initiation.
Most of the week was spent catching up on paperwork, updating web sites and doing research for the new book. Tuesday, I drove into the city for my face to face interview with the woman from Voices for Children. It went well and I was able to surprise her with my answer to one of the questions. She asked me what I expected to gain from the experience. I told her what I might gain had never even crossed my mind. It hadn’t. I suppose some folks do have ulterior motives for volunteering, but I just want to help.
Thursday, I had to roust the teenager out of bed before noon so we could head into the city to have her braces removed. I strongly recommended she sit down and actually eat something. While we were sitting at the dining room table eating our cereal, the younger cat came into the room. Now you have to understand, this is one really vocal cat. He has been dubbed musical by a friend. He is frequently so talkative that it becomes quite annoying. We often tell him to shut up. He walked up to me and stated MEOWWWWOW! I looked at him and said – Shut up! He looked right back at me and asked Moi? It was quite funny. The Rabbit giggled through the rest of breakfast.
After she had her braces removed we killed time at the mall and did some girl shopping. Had a bite to eat and got her retainer. So the braces are gone. She has now slimmed down even further and a size zero is too large. I have no clue how I am going to cloth her come school. I guess I’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
This evening, the entire family was home. My hubby decided we needed to take advantage of the situation and do something all together. We went to the movies. We saw Wanted. I must be turning into a real fluff bunny, I found the gratuitous violence and constant use of the “f” word a bit much for me. It must be all the time I spend focused on picture books. In any case, it was a very well done movie, and if you aren’t opposed to lots of splattering blood, I suggest you go see it. Don’t take the little kids though. It was nice to spend time with the hubby and the kid without having to rush off somewhere or do something other than enjoy ourselves.
