Good and Bad

Where my thoughts escaping
Where my music’s playing
Where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.
–Simon & Garfunkel, Homeward Bound

I’m home. Here’s what is good about today, and here’s what is bad about today.

1) Good: My own bed is just right. Bad: I didn’t sleep long enough. Good: Neither did Ned

2) Good: My email is fixed. Bad: I hardly got any email once it was fixed

3) Good: I had a great workout, steam, and shower. Bad: My hair came out terrible

4) Good: I got to take a long nap. Bad: When I woke up, my eyes looked really funny

5) Good: I had Cheesecake Factory salad leftover from last night. Bad: The chicken was bouncy.

6) Good: All five of us took a long walk to buy coffee and books. Bad: Nat was a pain over the water bottle (wanted to drink all of it and piss off Ben); Ben groused the entire time. Good: Enjoyed a good steamed cream latte; Max and Ben got the books they wanted; Nat nuzzled my hair in the bookstore.

7) Good: I have an idea of what to make for dinner. Bad: I’m making meatballs for dinner

8) Good: I will belly dance tonight. Bad: No one here cares

9) Good: The Simpsons tonight, I hope. Bad: It is often a repeat

10) Good: Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and hot (60 degrees) again. Bad: Global warming


The Simpsons is new tonight. Even from far away I do care about the belly dancing.

I know I’ve been quiet lately (trying to get this novel written before the 30th!) but I do care about the belly dancing. 😀 You inspired me to find a class in my area. 😀

We ALL care about the belly dancing! Maybe it’s time for you to make a quicktime movie and share it with the world — or at least with those of us from Brookline…

Susan, I had to laugh when you wrote that Nat had to have all the water from the water bottle. That is exactly what my son does. He thinks that everyone’s water bottle is his – and always has! It’s a habit we are having trouble breaking.
