These “notes” are ideas for essays/longer posts. If you see one that you think would make a good essay/post or that you just want to see what I would do with it, please let me know in the comments or in an e-mail! I would love to take on a challenge like that.

watch the kids let the kids watch while I do other things, chocolate to bring my nerves back into alignment after a shaky day. But life these days is pushing me toward the dark side. With Micah taking care of business in the evenings and me left to put the boys to bed by myself, I’m starting to think I should give myself a pass. Last night was not the night to go all the way, however. Manchild and Squish played games together while I made a dinner that only I would eat. And even though the boys rejected it, they were happy to get in their pajamas while I enjoyed my meal (nearly) in peace.
