Variety Pack

Just because!

--tonight I'm heading to watch Middle Sister play basketball. I haven't seen a game since mid-December. To tell the truth, I'm not looking forward to this, because I have to drive 25 minutes each way and then sit on bleachers. It's not going to be a comfortable night.

--Why didn't I have TheDad take her to the game? Well, he's spending the evening in Purgatory, AKA the "FunPlex" at a birthday party with Little Brother and 12 second-grade boys. The party will last almost 3 hours. The migraine will last much longer.

--How to amuse two teenagers: Leave a "Dr. Leonard's Presents Carol Wright Gifts" catalog on the dining-room table. I don't normally keep any catalogs in the house, since everything in them can be found faster on the internet, but this one is just too funny to toss.

--I've been whipping through Angela's Ashes, which I cannot believe I've never read before. I know the book is terribly tragic, but I'm also finding it quite funny. No one tells a story like the Irish, and Frank McCourt surely has a gift.

--One of these days I will once again be able to wear pants that are not sweatpants or yoga pants. Hopefully that will be soon.

sounds like you chose the better of the two choices, Barb! enjoy the basketball game. i know bleachers aren't the most comfortable place to sit. "Angela's Ashes" sounds interesting - maybe i'll read it sometime. hope you have a nice weekend! PEACE! ~tara t~
