Still Here

I haven't disappeared. I just can't seem to connect the dots between my brain and the keyboard. And don't even ask about my emotions as the heat, the economy, the poor people of Myanmar, and the job search have the potential to send me over the edge. In case you wonder what I do with all my time (which seems to be the question to ask stay at home mothers and is rude - when I worked, no one asked me to account for my usefulness), here's the weekly run down. Forgive me, I'll try to get it together soon.

  • Job search on computer for numerous, mind-numbing hours
  • Draft curriculum vitae for review by "boss with perks"
  • Search refrigerator for something that will resemble a dinner
  • Water new tomato, pepper and cantaloupe plants in hope that the sun from hell will not kill them
  • Attend various functions at school - this week the Spring Concert and the Mother's Day Picnic
  • Listen to Hew's newest rendition on the harmonica - thank you Auntie H, I will seek full revenge on the next birthday of your kid
  • Listen to KK sing the 50 states song repeatedly - can now list the 50 states
  • Count down the number of days left at school - only 13
  • Continue pursuit to find bottom of the laundry basket - still no success
  • Review "work" with "boss with perks" once kids have gone to sleep. Must ask for raise.
  • Scourge brain for something exciting to write about on neglected blog and instead post photos in place of real writing.

Keep on searching - I'm sure you'll find what you are looking for with a bit of patient :-)

hey sounds like my mood - posting photos instead of mustering up what to say or knowing it's something I won't be blogging about!

And where were the pics taken? On your Europe adventure?

I simply L O V E those pictures! What kick do Bruggelinites get out of placing those little houses like dots in the landscape?

I leaning into sad mood today, I heard that Robert Rauschenberg died. I really loved him as an artist and as a human being. One of the greatest moments of my life was when a New York gallery owner showed be about a hundred RR collages stashed away in drawers (huge ones of course, and at least a dozen). I felt in heaven. Wished I'd bought one.
