First let me say that I am freezing !! I absolutely refuse to turn the heat on, because it just costs too much. So, it is…hmm, let me look…. 65 degrees in here – and that’s upstairs! It must be about 60 downstairs….brrrr. And I need to go down there and take a shower. The water will be hot, right? Yup. Uhmmm….I’m bored.

Oh ~ Sorry. I’m feelin’ a bit weird today. More than usual. Tomorrow is our Co-op’s Talent Show. Kiki is going to sing a song, "Cry out to Jesus" by Third Day. This makes me horribly nervous. This will be her third year singing in the show. The first year, she just did it acapella. She was great. Last year she had a college student play guitar for her song, and he really messed it up, and therefore messed her up. This year I downloaded a performance track to a CD… it’s kind of hard for her to tell when to come in, tho. I get knots in my tummy when she performs. I mean, she sings fairly well; it’s certainly not fingernails-on-the-chalkboard or anything; but she’s also no Charlotte Church. I just don’t know how she’d take it if she really messed up. At any rate, she’s way braver than I ever was! I would never have attempted it at all.
Idiots, the lot of ’em ……
People around here have no idea how to drive. I don’t know what it’s like where you live… when I lived in So. Cal. there was a lot of traffic, but it moved pretty well. Bunch of morons up here, aparently. "Merge" is a concept no one understands. It used to make me crazy. I ranted and raved at everyone (as if they could hear me, and maybe get a clue!) It would go like this….someone pulls in front of me. Right in front of me. I would inhale sharply, do a sort-of cough-sigh then yell "IDIOT!!" Then I had a baby. After a while, she started listening. And asking why people are idiots. I began to feel guilty. But kept on. Finally, I knew I had to quit…..because, someone pulled in front of me. Right in front of me. I inhaled sharply, then did the cough-sigh…but, I kept quiet, and thought, there, that’s ok. Until from behind me, my baby, who barely talked yet, hollered "IDIOT!!"
I drive quietly now. Maybe they are idiots, maybe they are just….ummm…distracted. I just sigh to myself now, and let it go…breathe in, breathe out…..
