*Was an Assirian King and guided a pharoe to the spirit world via the north star
*Watched an old man drive triumphantly down our street with Bach blaring
*Watched Boy#2 march triumphantly down our hall while drinking a bottle of Astroglide.

Went to the cheapest grocery in town, took the bus with boy #1 & 2. Was fine enough, groceries for two weeks for a family of four – $40. Was in a hurry to leave the neighborhood after though, a lot of vagrants talking to boy #2, and a mentally ill lady singing to him every children’s song she knows, one after the other no breaks, no breaths…Just flat intonations of insy winsy spider, row row row your boat, twinkle twinkle little star coming out of a cheeto crusted mouth. Now, that’s entertainment! What a way to spend the last of daddy Cole’s cash…

Preparing for a week long camping trip to Madison, WI via Winnipeg MB (that’s in Canada). Promises to be a small adventure for a 7 months pregnant fritter eating cowgirl and her trusty herd of boys at her side. Cole is still away in Portland, it feels like it is just going to drag on. Funny, I used to look forward to getting time without him, and now I can’t sleep at night, must have something to do with the bachelor party aspect of it, or, perhaps it’s the preparing to send boy #1 to his dad’s for the winter coupled with lost travel documents, or, maybe it’s that I need to get laid, or I’m not getting enough omega-3 fatty acids, or maybe the fact that I’m peeing every 10 minutes has something to do with it. Looking forward to camping though, it should be fun to hike with Cole and boy #2 through whatever wilderness. Little tiny baby feet navigating nature trails. We’re driving in 4 hour stints from one state park to another. “Moterin’ One more time tonight”… Working on getting excited about it anyway, would rather douse it all and send it up in flames for a weekend on a mountain by myself.
