Two good things are that it is raining which might cancel soccer practice, and that I actually have gifts for the birthday parties we will be attending this weekend. Granted I will still probably be wrapping them on the drive, but this is a step toward the organized person I am trying to become. However I did feel annoyed at myself when I walked up to the counter of the book store to fetch my nephew's special order of Traction Man, several days ahead of time. Just who do I think I am, having it all together, and stuff. So today, in response, I had to go and chop off all my hair. I needed to say to that accusing voice inside my head, "You haven't got me yet! I could pack us all up and move to Oregon. If I really wanted to." Anyways, its on my list to see the Beverly Cleary sculpture garden.
