It’s Wednesday morning and that means our Hyde Park branch library is having story time….my favorite; I probably love it more than the kids do!
Anyway, Elliott is interested in going and we will be searching for a book he still remembers well and would like to check out once again: THE TREE IN THE ANCIENT FOREST. He loves the picture of all the roots underground =-).
I absolutely love children’s books. I’ve got to get working on the one I’m making for the kids, about our trips to sunset beach.. until i get around to doing that, I’m just going to enjoy all the marvelous ones that are already written.
Well, time to get rolling. I need a shower and don’t want to be late for story time.
It’s now almost 7pm. I am waiting for the kids to fall asleep so I can crash too. Paul is at his creative team meeting for 4 Corners and I’m sure he’d like to crash as much as he enjoys these new meetings. It has been a difficult couple of weeks waiting and waiting for money to show up at our door while Paul works his fingers to the bone on his computer. I wish those people who owe us money would just pay and stop playing games. There’s people here who need to pay bills and eat more than lentil soup!
This morning I overestimated how fun story time would be and Elliott and I cut out on it early so we could go sit in another part of the library and read the story he really wanted to hear. I am a better reader than the librarian who read today; she messed up Goldilocks and the Three Bears and didn\’t even do voices for her puppets: how lame is that?! All of the children who were present, were more forgiving than I was and sat very still and quietly the whole time —amazing!
My day went down hill from there. I thought I was bored, but now realize I am tired beyond belief instead of “bored beyond belief” like Steve Martin in L.A. Story. It’s really ridiculous how tired I am yet I don’t really want to go to sleep; it’s so early still, but alas, I wouldn’t enjoy anything I attempted to do right now anyway. I hope tomorrow isn’t another repeat of today. I want to stop being just tired enough to have no interest in anything. I also would like the kids to fall asleep and stop calling my name, but that’s too much to ask for one day. I shall patiently fulfill my duty until they close their eyes and then I will close mine.
