My excuse: It's the wear and tear on the Momma due to excessive sleep deprivation. There is no drama with CPAP, just excruciatingly interrupted sleep. The new nasal mask is arriving on Monday; I am SO tempted to just take the next two nights off. But I won't. It's not fair to Hannah to stop using it on my whim.
Another excuse: My camera. My poor camera. It soaked in a liter of water for 30 minutes at soccer practice last week. A series of very unfortunate events, too boring to type, resulted in a dripping wet Nikon D40. Much to my surprise, after 3 days of drying, it works! At least, as long as I don't leave the battery in it. It drains the battery very quickly, even when turned off. So there is a problem. For now, I will just keep removing the battery as soon as I'm done taking a picture!
Yet another excuse: Hannah took her camera into her room a couple weeks ago. She wanted to keep it in her room. I heard her taking pictures in there. But she couldn't find her camera the next day, and I haven't seen it either. She's even cleaned her room twice since then. I'm sure I could find it if I helped her clean. But that isn't my style. I usually have be expecting company before I'll help a kid clean their room!
Without camera, no inspiration.
So, today I jiggled my battery in and out and took a few pictures.
We've started to deck out The Boy (Chris) for college. I don't think he's had a blue blazer since he was in cotillion!
He's gotten quite a bit taller since then! He's a solid 6+ feet tall. And now ready to meet the Dean, or the college president, or, even, go to church on Easter.
We were out of butter yesternight. We had to eat Tagalongs instead of making our own cookies. (oh, the torture! Ripping open a new box of Girl Scout cookies instead of making a pile of dirty dishes?? Nibbling on the chocolatey-peanut buttery deliciousness? If you insist...)
Hannah reminded me to buy butter today. Several times. We now have delicious peanut butter cookies.
