i totally forgot that my middle daughter doesn't have class this week, and so baby jake did not arrive on my doorstep on the dot of 8 AM. i realized this last night when meg kissed me goodbye and said she'd be here with him around one. around one, i wondered, and then i remembered. vacation. thanksgiving. no class.
and so this morning i did some blissful things, just for me. i fell sound asleep after Beloved and i went back to bed, and slept for another WHOLE hour!!! i woke up with the sun shining directly on my third eye.
Beloved is gone now, the puppies are napping. the house and these hours are blissfully mine. the danger now is not to spend them wondering how i should fill them.
and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.
