Elevator, early in the morning

I get in, again, having just somehow taken a long ride to the wrong floor. I have more or less no idea where I am, where I’m going, or how to get where I’d like to go, but I’m thinking the fog will eventually clear if I just keep acting as if. The guy who gets in after me pushes one button, then—apparently also suffering some confusion—rethinks his choice and lunges forward to correct his decision before the doors close.

Him: “I’m guessing the car is on one of these floors marked ‘P,’ right? Do you think?”
Me: “Sounds about right, but who knows.”
Him: “The ‘P’ makes sense.”
Me: “You may have just cracked the code.”
Him: “I watch a lot of CSI.”

Still fiddling with the camera

I’ll just come right out and admit that I’ve never met a pink flower I didn’t like. My iPhoto library does nothing if not prove this point. And yet, every time I come across a new specimen, it’s like I’ve never seen a pink flower before, such is my excitement in capturing every last Pink! Flower! I come across on film. I should probably be more embarrassed for myself than I am.

At some point, I’ll start writing actual updates again. Until then, enjoy some Polaroid goodness:

Doesn’t give me hope

Received list of snack items to bring to Gage’s school next week. Among other surprising misspellings, last line of said list requests that I bring cups and “small bowels.” 

And this is a handwritten list, so that’s no typo.



What my life has been like lately

Person ahead of me in traffic this morning drives veeeeery slowly down the middle of two lanes, one of which is MY lane. Comes to a sudden, unexpected halt in the middle of an intersection, signaling that he will turn right. Instead he turns left, just as I’m beginning to edge around him.

Miraculously, I’m able to stop before colliding with his car, which is extra miraculous considering that in the back seat of MY car, Gage has wiggled out of his seatbelt and is loudly playing his harmonica.

Srsly. I ask you. If things keep going like this, how much longer are we all going to live?

A truly unfortunate shot of these two. Clearly, I know a poignant moment when I see it. And the lampshade behind Scott’s head just makes the whole effort shine that much brighter.
