Ahhh the joy of staying up late, you can force a night owl to function like a normal “daylight” person but it feels so good to stay up when it’s pitch black outside! It doesn’t hurt that I am off work tomorrow. Once I actually have some money in the bank again I can finally go back to the glory of farm hunting, the Chicago Botanic Garden, and more!
I am having the weirdest emotional time lately… cracked out glitterized hormones? Perhaps. A lot of it is my son hollering in my ear right now, “ICE CREAM!” because well… I promised him ice cream after dinner. Speaking of my child, I asked him, “Hey babe, what are clouds made of?”, and he replied, “White things and… (in a dramatic whisper) CCCAANNDDYY!”. Yep. Anyway, I realize a lot of it is just the stressful transition of leaving a long time job and starting a new one and being freaking broke until I get my first glorious paycheck, and part of it is that my son is going through a “DADDDDYYY!” phase lately, which sucks, you know being that I am a single mother and his father is pretty much a pathetic lump of nothingness in our lives. Whatever… I have mommy powers according to the wee one so it’s all good. And as I declare daily, I can NOT be broken! Oddly enough, when I typed that, I wanted to do a finger snap in a Z formation…
Because I love them…. what are your favorite power ballad songs (especially from the 80’s!) ? I have an obscene love for Michael Bolton, but also would like to expand my already… rather large… power ballad podlet playlist.
Lastly, some photos.
