Tonight, Here.

8 Comments Family, Personal Crap

I want to post real fast just so I don’t forget that…

Tonight Garrett made us watch the Madonna Super Bowl half-time show (again) so we could all dance in front of the TV. And that he made us pause it so he could get a drum and play along with the marching band. And that he gave me a microphone so I could sing along, and Russ got a maraca.

Then we showed him “Material Girl” and “Get Into the Groove” and we sang along and danced a little more.

And that I did the magic spell over G’s cup of water to make sure he wouldn’t have any dreams. Not just bad dreams, mind you. This kid doesn’t want ANY dreams. And that he smiled so warmly when I did the spell that I almost melted. And that he laughed when I took a sip because I rolled across the room when the drink pulled all the dreams out of me. And that when he took a sip he said, “WHOA! Β That knocked all MY dreams out, too!”

And that I’m lucky. And happy.

And that even though I’m stressed and a little worried about “stuff”…

Wonderful things happened under my roof tonight.

I just didn’t want to forget.

    I love that! Your lil G and my Buddy are so similar.

    We’ve watched the halftime show several times, too. Buddy now dances around the house singing “Party rockin’ in the HOUSE TONIGHT!!!!” and talking about the tightrope guy.

    You’ve mentioned stress lately – I want you to do a magic spell over a cup of water (or herbal tea?) for YOU to take out all the stress. You need that. Wait . . . better idea. Do a magic spell over a bubble bath. Then all the bubbles pull the stress and bad thoughts out and they go down the drain!!!!!! Yes!!!!

    Much love, Lisa!

      Thanks, Milaka. I have to do a lot more than a bubble bath right now… Especially since baths kind of stress me out because I have germ issues… But what I really need to do is sit down and figure out what the hell I’m doing with my life right now. That’s a post I’ll be doing soon. I keep starting it and stopping. Which is kind of a metaphor for what’s going on. Blah blah blah. You rock. Thank you so much for the support and love!! Right back at you, sister.
