Day five of meditating morning and afternoon and I think that the morning time especially is making a difference. I'm not ready to declare myself a "Morning Person" or anything crazy like that but it is making getting up a little easier.
I admit it, I watched the season premiere of "Jon & Kate Plus Eight" last night. After seeing all the magazine covers in the store yesterday, how could I not? Those poor kids. Now, even if they wanted to go back to being normal, their normal will always be being sextuplets, until they are old enough to go out individually they can't help but be noticed, that and their mother dresses them in matching outfits. I don't know whose fault all the publicity is but it is a good reason to put an end to "reality" shows.
The lilacs are out, I will try to take a photo of one section along the road where there are literally hundreds of bushes. They were planted over 100 years ago by the train station master's wife in her effort to bring a little beauty into what must have been a very hard and lonely existence way up here. What a wonderful legacy she gave us.
Soccer is on again - four nights a week for us. I just wish it would warm up a little more so I didn't have to wear a coat to watch the games.
34 days until the boys head off to camp, time to get ironing on those name tags. Wonder where I put away the iron last year?
The other day in the car Number Two Son tattled on Number Three for using the "B" word. When I asked for some clarification he replied,
"You know the word for girls' privates."
"What word?" I asked, somewhat perplexed.
"You know, that word."
I turned to my 16 year old niece to see if she knew what the word was. We were both confused.
The "B" word for girls' privates?
Oh right, that would be "bigina"
