"... and so the world goes round and round
with all you ever knew -
They say the sky high above
is Caribbean blue ..."
"Caribbean Blue" ~ Enya
Kids are home from school today. (They've been off for six days now, thanks to parent-teacher conferences, inservices, and President's Day. Don't even get me started on being off for parent-teacher conferences.)
They are driving me - and each other - a bit bonkers.
I'm getting no work done.
I don't know which is louder: the Wii , the whining for something to eat ten minutes after consuming their lunch, the cries of boredom.
With 3-6" of snow in the forecast, we could be looking at the same thing for tomorrow.
The phone just rang. I look at the Caller ID to determine if I'm picking it up.
Caribbean Island? Caribbean ISLAND???!! On a day with bickering and whining kids, and more gawdforsaken snow in the forecast, after a tease of 70 degree temperatures that we had on Friday?
That's just downright fucking cruel.
|Alas, not the Caribbean. |
A little closer to home.
