Bartleby

Scrivening by day and parenting by night wears a girl out, man. In no particular order:

  • I paid good money to get Mouse’s hair dyed purple at the ends. Remind me never to do¬†that again. The color is amusing but it’s still leaching out of her hair and into everything – clothes, bed linens, bathtub, skin. And it cost a freakin’ fortune, even at a Haircuttery.
  • My imaginary farm/container garden produced some cucumbers and tomatoes. I am enjoying this. I think I may try composting this winter to prepare for the spring once the plants finally quit producing. Also growing dill and tarragon, which I can bring indoors (assuming the cat doesn’t eat them).
  • ANOTHER SQUIRREL GOT IN OUR PLACE but we extracted it with minimal difficulty and much less trauma than last year.
  • TeenBot in his junior ROTC uniform is alarmingly adult.
  • Went to Michigan last weekend and had a wonderful visit. Thank you Congress for not shutting down the federal government this fall.
