today

dear day,

i slept more than usual.  did a lot of thinking.  watered my flowers.  a neighbor stopped to chat.  she listened.  it was refreshing.  people don't listen very often.  it's good.  they have a lot going on, a lot on their mind.  and i like to listen, so that's that.  although, it was very nice of her to hear me.  picked the kids up from school. watered and fed the dogs and cat.  watered and fed the kids.  fhe (short for family home evening) ...well, maybe.  it is getting a little late, and short of day light.  there are still a lot of things to be done.  i love spring.  spring cleaning ...not so much.  but it has to be done.  tomorrow i spring clean the easy way...kicked back in the chair at the dentist!  well.  thats about today.  it.

Hey, you're back! Sleeping and thinking are both good things...I should probably do them more myself.

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
