just stop the world and get off the merry-go-round, if only for a short time. KWIM?
I am planning a brief getaway. No kids, no spouse. Perhaps that will be the momentary escape that I need.
My daughter is watching an episode of Star Trek at the moment. I hadn't realized how into it she is, or how much she has been exposed to it, or whatever. Spock came into the frame and she yelled "It's Spock, Mommy!" I laughed and I've been asking her to name characters as they came into view. She got "Docca Coy," "Scotty" and "Captain Jim." OMG, she is her parents' daughter . . . Maybe I can get her to dress as Uhura for Halloween next year. Of course, that would likely mean I would have to get out my sewing machine. Perhaps it's not such a good idea after all.
I had lunch with a girlfriend today. She tries to talk me out of everything fun in my life, phrasing it all in religious terms. Then she tries to get me to go spend my money (okay, Spousehole's money) on psychics and astrology readings. She's sure I would be so much happier in life and in my marriage if I just got my cards read, my stars charted, my numbers divined, and prayed more. Okee dokee. Oh, and since she's in the mortgage industry, I should also refi my house. Yeah, great time to do that (NOT). And since her marriage is on extremely shaky ground, I'm really comfortable taking her marriage advice. Sheez. I need to get some new friends.
