Feeling inspired, manic. Ate delicious soup.
(also, I made these earrings today over at Sherry's house [she's the delicious soup-maker] and I am quite fond of them.)

six word memoirs

For Krips birthday, one of the many nice gifts Marth gave her was a book of six word memoirs with which I have become obsessed. I read it every time I visit them. I am toying with the idea of writing a six word poem (or memoir or whatevs) on the daily tip for a year, but am also aware that I may not be programmed to do the same thing everyday for a year since the 365 photo thing was a bit of a flop (though really cool while it lasted). Maybe I need to have a smaller time frame. I will do six word memoirs for a month starting today and then reevaluate. Today's is: Super mom today, played countless boardgames.

In our family we...

1. call each other names freely and almost constantly
2. say swear words to make each other laugh
3. never ever close the bathroom door
4. entertain each other by doing a series of odd back and forth dances past the open bathroom door for whoever is sitting on the john
5. draw the most horrible looking things we can think up and then proudly display them all over the dining room wall
6. simply want to eat our high-fat, high-carb diet without being disturbed
7. smell the kids glorious and vile morning breath with glee
8. hang around in the yard wearing underwear or pajamas
9. try to eat three half gallons of ice cream outside in our pjs in the middle of the night so they won't turn into ice cream soup during the black out
10. love a good book on tape
11. move worms out of our way and put them in a worm hotel established by Keeler in the garden
12. talk a lot about poop
13. wrestle around and hug and kiss and zerbert
14. listen to "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg" for months on end at the kids' insistence
15. stand around town with a big sign that says "HONK" and go berzerk when someone does our bidding
16. like to hike and jump around in creeks
17. make a lot of silly props with paper and crayons
18. say "I love you" many times every day
19. have unattractive tantrums
20. say sorry
21. make up ridiculous names for the Eagles like "Kevin corn on the Kolb"
22. stay at a campground every summer
23. like to sing about "Mike Fink, the King of the River"
24. make idle threats
25. play poker

1. making and eating egg salad while listening to "Love, Stargirl" on cd (Marth - I was able to take out the book and cd from the library so we can have a mini book club! :))

2. playing poker with the kids

3. unexpectedly passing inspection with friendly inspectors

4. wearing a shirt with watercolor-y birds and flowers and a ric rac skirt

5. going to bed ultra early

7. tall sunflowers with big buds on them in the backyard

8. getting a letter in the mail from a sweet friend

9. hearing the satisfactory conclusion to "Harriet Spies Again" and being in love with these books

10. contemplating my new name: Fireflower, given to me by Keeler and inspired by Super Mario Bothers.
