how come the hole in the roof isn't big enough so i can fly out...

but it is big enough so the rain can get in?

my wife has been gone this week for training in texas. the boys' daycare ended last friday, and school doesn't start until next monday, so i took the week off and reminded myself what last summer felt like.

cleaning broken nightlight pieces up off the kids' floor at 11 pm. the neighbor's kitten (we are cat-sitting while they are on vacation) nibbling on whatever protruding part of my anatomy is unprotected at 2 am. being kneed in the back by no. 1 as he climbs into bed and proceeds to sniffle snort and hock like he is trying to dredge up a loogey the size of an apple at 4 am.

today we have kindergarten orientation for no. 2. he is going to a regular kindergarten with lots of out-of-class assistance with his ot, speech, and other learning issues. i am excited that he is finally starting to near the "normal" range, and i can see things that remind me of just how far he has come: most of what he says is understandable, he can copy his name just by looking at it, and recognizes most of the letters and all of the numbers.

i've updated my pals list. bel's blog is no longer there apparently, pixie's blog has changed again (but is current in the list now), and i finally decided that jaimie's memory was better-served with whatever things we know of her in our head than by some by-line declaring "this blog has been removed."

i do still make my way out to all of your blogs on a relatively regular basis, though i don't always comment.

spose that is really all i have for today.
