I'm ready for a nap now. However I now go home and do homework with the rug rat, wash dishes and do some laundry. Then I will try to watch some olympics and fall asleep.

|I want spring
I want spring. I want lie in a field that is lovely with no bug to bother me except pretty butterflies floating around. I don't want to have sit up except to take another sip of a nice cool riesling. And I want to lie in that meadow until I'm warm!!!

|What would she remember
Just read about a mother who was killed by a car thief. She had a daughter about DM. Made me wonder what DM would remember about me, if I died at this age. Would she remember all the sillyness we get up to and the snuggling or just when I yell about toys on the floor.

Started a facebook page, but not really sure how I feel about it. All sorts of people I don't know well want to be friends. Not sure I like sharing everything with the world, so it is a very wonder bread view of me. This is much more me. How do other people feel about facebook?

We went this week for new photos for the church directories. The last one DM had just turned one year old. I was still terrified of doing something wrong as a mom. Now I know I will and am willing to live with that.
Also learned I must not be too vain. It never dawned on me to go in the bathroom and check my hair... I should have. Watched other women go check.

|I want a nap
Haven't been sleeping well since I hit the deer. No bad dreams, but just not sleeping enough.
I'll tell you I don't need to hit another. That scared me to death. I thought it might years before the muscles in my back relaxed. One minute I was singing with the Standells about the dirty water. The next I was staring at Bambi's mom.

Today was the first day of kindergarten. Hopefully all is going well. Must admit I'm curious. She did okay when I left. She had a puzzle of a unicorn to do, who cared about mom. LOL

We lost tooth number two last night. You can see tooth number one herehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/sithiworld/3743356894/
So the toothfairy is busy last night trying to make the switch without anyone waking up... and looses the tooth. Ever try to find an itty bitty tooth on beige carpet in the dark. The toothfairy suggests you don't try this.

|Welcome to the doldrums
Not much happening and it is hard to get motivated right now to write anyway. We go to work and preschool. We come home. Work is okay with moments of suckiness. Life with DM is good, but not exciting. Bubble baths, tree climbing, monkey bars, maybe going to the city pool.

We have been watching an interstate bridge near our house being built. She's even tried with her legos. It is a cast inplace concrete bridge, which makes a tough balancing act with legos. She's had to change the way she builds the piers with legos. Also once it reaches a certain length it takes two of us. You have to put the legos on each end at the same time or boom. Still it's been an interesting engineering challenge for a five year old.
She had a question I couldn't answer, so I sent an email to the company. He's offered to give her a little tour of the building site, which should be a lot of fun. I need to get some time off work to go.

|Hop hop hippity hop
Well DM and her doll, Baby, wore matching dresses to mass yesterday. Most of the day she was little miss sugar buzz. She got a rabbit that sings and wiggles from her aunt. Very cute... the first hundred times.

Not much going on, so I haven't been motivated to blog. We go to pre-school and work. Then we go home. Kindergarten registration is this month. Doesn't seem possible.... I remember emailing my online friends when I got to Guatemala City to get DM. My friend Melanie spread the word and rejoicing ensued. Now kindergarten.

|Hard to be enthused
Hard to be enthused about work right now and I need to be. I've got a new staff person starting and someone has to like this place.
Snow on the ground today. Hope to get DM home with enough light to play a little. They don't let them go out at daycare because some kids don't have warm enough clothes and if they get wet they'd all need spares anyway.

|I must be mean
Well I lost out on a set of seven novels by Stevenson on eBay. However I am feeling a bit mean as I made my rival really pay quite a bit to win. Almost glad I lost at the end when the price as the price ran up. I think what annoyed me was that they used software to win. My bids were outbid before they were even completed.

|Baby vs. DM
As you know Baby is viewed as DM's little sister even given her plastic dolls status. Last Saturday DM was in trouble and was busy snivelling. She looks up at me and goes "You love Baby better than you love me." It was all I could do to keep from laughing, which would have of course intensified the sniveling. LOL

It is just not my day. It starts with a drunk, who we kick out. I fill out paperwork in triplicate. Then a shelter men's fight, which means more triplicate.... Don't you love working with the public
