Kicking back

I’ve crammed a lot of living into my four days off: a doctor visit, a movie, a great dinner (complete with one Margarita), time with my family, and lots of sleep.

In a few hours, I return to work, and I’ll be ready to hit the bricks and do my job.

Now I’m kicking back in my chair, surfing the internet, drinking a diet coke with a wedge of lime, and listening to the Seattle police and fire scanner on KOMO 4 news. I won’t listen to the scanner for long, because it’s too unsettling.

Last night, I offered to babysit three of my grandchildren for a few hours so my son and daughter-in-law could get out for a few hours. We rented two movies, Oliver & Company, and The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl. The kids got a real charge when a character in the last movie talked about having a “brain fart.” They giggled themselves to sleep.

What is it with kids and bodily functions?


Anyhoo, I’ve commented on lots of blogs today, and now I’m just going to flake out.

Gran out for now.
