And my muse is apparently snoring.
It's been much too dark and wet for photography so by rights I should dust off the old writing portion of my brain and crank out something worthwhile, but it just isn't coming. I miss the days when I would merely glance at a writing prompt and the text would start to flow almost of its own volition.
Yeah. Not happening.
I think part of it is the weather, my mood has always been very susceptible to what's going on outside, but part of it is probably also the crash that inevitably comes after a big adrenalin rush, and god knows we had that last week.
We managed to have a great weekend despite the weather - we started things off right Thursday night when we met up with the always lovely Phyllis and her very cool husband Michael (who it turns out went to camp with all my best friends from high school - we'd even attended some of the same Sweet Sixteen parties way back when. He'll actually be meeting up with a very dear friend of mine next month, such a small world...) and another friend of theirs for an evening of laughs and good fun at our favorite pasta joint. It was great to celebrate our good news (about Itai) with them, I only wish they lived close enough to hang out more often. Do you think their temple would spring for trips over here every few months so that we can go out to dinner more often?
Friday was a fairly wet, low-key day. A trip to the gym, errand-running and the usual kid-ferrying, but not much else.
Yesterday was Jay's birthday so we had a few friends over for an "indoor picnic". It was utter bedlam, but good happy bedlam. Maya was a bit put out though when she found out that her dad had elected to have birthday ice cream (homemade strawberry - yum!) instead of cake. Totally goes against her "more cake is better" worldview.
Today it's back to work, back to the gym, and back to the electronics store with the Ican'tbelieveitdoesn'twork fancy-shmancy mp3 player that Jay had asked for as a birthday gift. Hopefully they'll just exchange it, I'm going to be really ticked if they try to make me send off a brand new just opened yesterday item to the lab.
And now speaking of work, it's time to put you all out of your mental misery and end this mindless drivel so that I can go do some.
