Yesterday I was featured on PAIL’s Monday Shapshot. Here are a couple more photos I took during the same banana breakfast on Saturday morning:
So that was a fun look back at what was a pretty nice weekend. This week’s pretty much turned to crap already, frankly. This morning as I was driving down the highway to drop Ike off at my parents’ house before work, a little star in my windshield that we had “repaired” a while ago decided it was high time to get crackin’. Literally. Not sure how well you can see it here, but it split almost all the way across, near the bottom of the windshield.
Was actually kind of cool to see happen, but it would have been a lot cooler if I didn’t have to pay to have it replaced. I’d even settle for the middle-of-the-road-cool of having a clue as to how I’m going to pay to have it replaced. Terrible timing, as all unforeseen financial obligations are, I suppose. Motherfucking MEH. I had really been hoping to purchase the digital files, or at the very least a few more nice, larger prints from Ike’s six month photo session, but it looks like I can pretty much kiss that idea goodbye. Breaks my heart a little bit, but clearly having a structurally sound windshield on the car in which he’s most often transported is more important.
I would really like to get back to actually writing more often here. Too many months have gone by in which I’ve barely posted anything beyond my letter to Baby Ike, and while I’m still amazed that I even get to do such a thing, I can do better. I hope, anyway. I don’t know if it’s some seasonal affective-type stuff, and hopefully not delayed PPD, but I am feeling not so chipper lately. Not that chipper is a word I’d actually use to describe myself even in the best of moods, but you know what I mean, I’m sure. I probably just need more sleep (and to write a post about that, at some point, too). Thankfully, PAIL also has the perfect meme to get me going again, at least with posting SOMETHING, if not actual writing – I have 20 questions to answer, hopefully tonight. Please feel free to harass me if you don’t see them, along with answers, posted soon!
