it's not two hours after that last post
it's not even 24 hours after it
sometimes that life comes in the form of
a little girl elf who had a raging morning
which included the words
'i want a new mommy'
'i don't want a new mommy. i just want daddy'
& it also included
(& she did some stuff too. ha:)
she did have numerous time outs...
gosh i wish i could have a time out
that plus the interesting occurrence that
when i moved all of the containers out from
the spot in the garage
under the stairs
between the hot water heater
& the shelf that houses
& snow chains
where we keep it all
someone moved in
& is now calling it the basement
(& i am praying that he doesn't start telling people
that i make him sleep in the basement
though if i did he would have all of the essentials of life
blocks & trains
cans of chili
gilmore girls season 5 on dvd
it's all there))
how can i make him move out of the basement?
when he has decorated it
& says things like
'i'm going to the basement to read!'
'can i have some snacks to take to the basement?'
canned chili isn't a good snack when
you're not allowed to use the can opener? huh.)
he's too cute...
& so our christmas decorations
only partly packed up
(not all my fault!)
sit in the garage
waiting to see...
will the basement stick?
will he move his bed in next?
or will this lose it's novelty too
like watching tv while hanging upside down from the couch
or wearing long pants in the winter?
only time will tell...
& how long we can maneuver around the christmas boxes
