Major writer's block this week. I've felt tired and a little ill and just haven't been inspired. Not much out of the ordinary or cute or startling has gone on either, with the exception of this morning (in the startling category)--I was in the kitchen at 5:18 a.m., making my lunch for work when I almost jumped out of my skin at the sight of a tousle-haired little person in the doorway and the sound of a gravelly little voice, saying "Hi, Mama. I s'prise you!"
This weekend we're going to visit my in-laws, so maybe that will render something noteworthy. I've had a post about my dad in honor of Father's Day cooking in my head for a little bit, but I haven't gotten motivated enough to write it down. Plus, we're waiting a week to celebrate Father's Day with him, so it's really not due yet. As my friend Julie and I always say, "I work better under pressure."
I haven't even read anything new since vacation, just a bunch of re-reads. Each night I just flop on my bed and start watching a Ngaio Marsh Inspector Alleyn mystery and fall asleep to it. About the most exciting thing to happen to me lately is that I discovered Boots cosmetics at Target. Before I had kids, I used to go to the MAC counter at Marshall Fields on State Street and stock up on whatever I wanted. Now that I have them and all their needy needs, I just buy drugstore brands but I don't really like anything. I miss that high-end makeup (uh, see post on contentment from yesterday, Alice). Anyway, Target now carries Boots, which for all my non-UK readers is the British equivalent of Walgreens. But the makeup is great! I particularly recommend the lip gloss in berry. Very long lasting. The packaging is nice too.
That last paragraph sounds like I have UK readers, which of course I don't. Unless you count the one person from England who Googled "london calling jesus" and got my site. Somehow I don't think they found what they were looking for.
So, that's all I've got--hopefully I'll be back on track next week. The Tooth Fairy is rumored to be visiting us sometime soon...maybe she'll provide good material. Happy weekend!
