Nothing contributes so much to tranquilizing the mind as a steady purpose—a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye. – Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Derive happiness in oneself from a good day’s work, from illuminating the fog that surrounds us. – Henri Matisse

Never despair; but if you do, work on in despair. – Edmund Burke

Rich gifts wax poor when givers prove unkind. – William Shakespeare

20 Days Without a PC was a surprisingly interesting article. I even read the charts at the end of the article.

More of that good old Christian love in action.

littlefirefae, shadowkatt and sambear watched most of a movie on TV last night—the second of those Mummy movies with that Tarzan guy, Brendan somebody? I was in front of the TV at one point but it just didn’t hold my attention at all. sambear fell asleep and finally took himself off to our bed. littlefirefae had seen the movie before, but was enthralled anyway (TV is like that for her). shadowkatt hadn’t seen it before, but she’s my girl for sure—she was making cynical/sarcastic comments throughout about the stupid things characters did. 🙂

real_pochacco is off spending time with his best buddies. Unfortunately, he and sambear didn’t refer to the calendar when making plans, and forgot that the boy is supposed to see the eye doctor tomorrow morning. I specifically scheduled that to take advantage of the school holiday tomorrow, so I don’t want to change it. I know the boys will really be disappointed, and I can’t help feeling somewhat guilty about that, even though I didn’t do anything wrong.

Maybe we could offer to bring all three boys back here instead—but that will result in leaving the two guests here alone tomorrow morning when we go to the eye doctor, as I don’t think I can fit all five kids in my car. (Okay, technically I can—but it’s difficult to drive with littlefirefae tucked up under my right arm, and I don’t like having little people in the front seat even with seat belts. And it would be unkind to invade the doctor’s office unexpectedly with five kids.) Of course, if I leave the boys playing Starcraft head to head while we’re gone, they’re unlikely to even notice our return until I pull the plug or something. Hmm. I really don’t want to disappoint the guys—real_pochacco has been such a sweetie lately that he truly deserves some fun, and I like to facilitate as much fun as possible for people I love.

littlefirefae is itching to get back to her painting now, so I need to make sure the carpet is safely covered!
