will you miss baby jake, my mother enquired the other day, when i told her that i'd taken him to see his new school on friday afternoon.
im going to have him when he's sick, i said.
oh, my mother said. there was a long pause and then we practically said together:
"i/you're going to see an awful lot of him."
we both laughed. that was then.
this morning katie called and asked if i could help out tomorrow afternoon by sitting with him while he naps and then taking him to the doctor.
it sure didn't take long.
in other news, i continue to take advantage of as much peace and quiet as i can muster, especially considering that we're going away for much of the weekend... to new york on saturday to have lunch and see a show with my mother and stepfather and brother for their birthdays (saturday is Beloved's birthday, so the only birthday we won't be celebrating is mine, but that's okay - they all came to my party ;).) monday we're helping to prep the Labor Day picnic at one of the Hartford soup kitchens and then going to a party at a friend's. it will give Beloved a chance to see one of his very closest friends he hasn't seen in a while.
i also managed to slog through more of the laundry and the dust bunnies today, but i also made time for lunch with a friend and a couple short walks with the puppies. tomorrow, before i watch baby jake, i have another accupuncture appointment, and between that the reiki i can give myself, the relief i've felt is just amazing.
it's also an Ask Annie Wednesday over at Sited & Blogged... someone asked what tarot cards are.. and how they "work"....it was a big question, but i did my best :).
