It was nice while it lasted

It is unnaturally quiet in my house right now.  5yo is doing some drawings, and 8yo is at swimming practice.  My husband works alternating weeks of days and evenings, and this week he's working evenings.  The house is clean and the laundry is folded. 

Since I'm wallowing in relative leisure, however temporary, I thought I'd look at my drafts folder and see if I could put something in decent enough shape to post.  My drafts folder is a bigger mess than my car, and there are a few things in there that are downright cryptic.  A few weeks ago, for example, I wrote the single line "Poor is a relative concept, isn't it?"  I guess I had some lofty idea about comparing my relative wealth to the abject poverty suffered by over half of the world.  Or maybe it was going to be some topical Great Recession essay.  I really have no idea, because I have no memory of having started that post, nor of what random observation prompted it.  See all the pithy and incisive wisdom you might be missing just because I can't keep a thought in my head for five minutes

I'm going to clean up that drafts folder.  Maybe I'll even clean my car.  Meanwhile, 5yo just came to tell me that he's rilly rilly rilly thirsty and he NEEDS a juice, and then can he go to Lego.com?  Leisure is a relative concept, isn't it?

Quiet is good. Take full advantage. You reminded me I need to clean out my car soon.

Happy Thursday

I use Windows Live Writer to write my posts and that thing is like a guest bedroom closet. It's full of half written drafts and ideas and short posts about crap and a million things I've started and not finished because either it was really awful or I lost my train of thought and never got it back. Of course this is worrying because you know the crap I USUALLY post and if all that made the cut you can only IMAGINE the carnage in the drafts folder. :)

Does your 5yo get the free Lego Jr magazine? My son gets that and LOVES it.

I used to write my blog posts, or what I felt were clever ideas for blog posts, as emails to myself - so my drafts email box has all kinds of bizzare messages for me I should delete them, but I'm afraid there might be a gem in there if only I could decipher it.

A drafts folder? I just have random crap all over my computer.

You are too neat!

*sigh*

I really wish we could have lunch again. Are you free Saturday? Oh wait, I won't be there. Wah!!

Steve--sadly, I will not be warm until May.

Anonymous--thanks!

Saiorse--"Soon"--another relative concept!

Veg--you crack me up. I bet there's GOLD in there!

SS--oh my gosh, yes. The arrival of the Lego magazine is huge at our house!

Lady--I was hoping I'd find a gem or at least something semi-precious. What I found was Home Shopping Network cubic zirconia.

Fran--Lebanese Taverna! I'm going to start working on Lisa to move here, so you can visit us both at the same time!

I also have drafts that I have no clue about!

Sauntering Soul said...

I should probably just think about hiring someone to write my posts for me. Maybe then something new would show up on my blog more than once every few weeks.
