Idle Threats

Sunday mornings are always hectic for us... We have to get the kids ready for swim class, I need to write, Ezra needs to be dealt with. Rachel tends to get stressed as we run around getting ready. This morning, I had been working and my shower took longer than usual -- because I had Ezra and couldn't wash myself. When I got out, Rachel was running around freaked out about being late and she said to me, "If you're not ready to go in one minute, I'm leaving without you."

Slowly, the implications of that sank in and a huge grin crossed my face. I started laughing and answered Rachel's quizzical look with "So, if I goof off for another minute, you'll take the kids and I'll get to laze about here all day?"

Journal Description

My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.
