Here I Am
The only excuse I have for not posting is that when I sit down to write one, I stare at a blank post page and then give up. I turn the computer off and walk away. Just like that. I come up with BRILLIANT posts when I'm lying in bed doing the crossword puzzle, though. I jot down a line to remember the idea and the next day, when I sit down to write....all the funny things I had thought up are gone. Poof. No more.

You would have really loved the funny thing I thought up last week about the wart on Harry's foot. Seriously, it was the bomb.

Anyway, the house is clean and looking more organized that it has in months. I feel accomplished. I've watched lots of movies, Which makes me feel relaxed. We had a snow day. We baked cookies. I shoveled some of the sidewalks for the older folks on our street. That made me feel kind. Today I made banana muffins for Harry. That made me feel good, especially when he smiled when I told him they were for him. My mother is visiting to watch the kids while our sitter takes a break this week and we work. That makes me feel loved. I realized my cat is getting old. She will be 15 and is having trouble walking up the stairs. Lately she sleeps 18-20 hours a day. That makes me sad. We haven't done our taxes yet. That makes me anxious. The garden is still covered in snow but it is 4:30 and it is still light out. Knowing that in a few weeks the yard will begin greening makes me feel all spring-y.
