Hey hey! A moment to celebrate making it through Wednesday evening. Wednesday evenings, the night of Children’s Choir then rush home to make a quick meal that has become The NeverEnding Meal and then they get wilder and wilder until I’m wild-eyed and I fling them into their beds.
I’m sitting here feeling happy and peaceful, rather than strung out and exasperated (which is the usual Wednesday evening modus operandi). Of course, I felt strung out and exasperated for an hour or so around 6pm, so maybe I just got it out of the way earlier.
I’d like to thank the Olympics for sponsoring this unusually calm evening. In particular, I’d like to thank the women snowboarding half pipers and the pairs figure skaters. I’d like to commiserate with the snowboarders who didn’t do well, and give a moment of thanks for the face-hiding goggles in their moments of international scrutiny. I could use a pair of those goggles.
I’d also like to thank the figure skaters for inspiring extended conversations about the itchiness of skating costumes. Also for inspiring Levi to try to roller skate while lifting a foot. No small feat when the foot + skate probably weighs half as much as he does.
