I take it back about yesterday being my turning point. Nothing feels turned in any positive way yet, but it will. Just not time, I suppose. Still feeling blicky and blue and in need of wide open space. There’s really nowhere around here that offers that, and New Mexico is not exactly a day trip.
On a positive note, we had a very cute birthday party for Charlotte this afternoon, and the five girls loved playing Bingo, beading glow-in-the-dark necklaces, and playing with Charlotte’s new gifts. Sadly, our dear neighbor Tess was sick and couldn’t come, and we all missed her. Small, late afternoon parties are perfect. Kids are mellow and tired and just want some snacks and down time. So that was definitely something good.
