I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox
and which
you were probably
for breakfast
Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

{William Carlos Williams}


Still living the life of Modern Family.  Lurching about in the manner of a sitcom.  Struggling to find time for homework and music practice other than the night before (or morning due).  The Strong Silent One is dedicated to lunching out and irrigating the nature strip now that he is 'self-employed'.  I'm reconciled to a public high school for the first-born's pioneering experience in 2013, after much hand-wringing and sleepless nights and philosophical debates. Apparently private schools are a luxury good. Still haven't found my camera or selected a replacement one after some research and poor customer service at major electrical stores (where the man from televisions mosies over to assist).  Completely failed to reach agreement on suitable birthday present for 12 year old (she suggested $200+ Diagon Alley lego or $600 Asus tablet with keyboard), so poor darling missed out entirely... unless you count a Total Girl magazine, two Wispa bars and a Typo stamp that says *lol*, which she does.  A lot.  Fortunately. :O)
