As I write, a Thomas the Tank Engine toy is dangling precariously off the edge of the table. Buddy, our 3yo performs his lines “Hep! Me srap! Me srap! Eh-pain! you come here!” (Help! I’m trapped!I’m trapped! Airplane! You come here!”
As the train pleads for an air extraction, Sweetheart, our 7yo, is building the train track and asking me if we can go to the park. Nikki and Kid, our nearly 1yo, are fast asleep and I’m trying to think of something to say to you, dear reader. I’m tired. Haven’t been sleeping well at night, even though Nikki’s been wonderful and let me sleep in like a teenager today, and am lately a sad sack when it comes to having the brain power to focus on anything long enough to del like I’ve done any real damage to whatever project I’m on.
In other news, I owe you a song, and will be rectifying that – possibly even tonight! I have a show with Something Beautiful this weekend – featuring special guest Shreddy from Mindwarp Chamber on keyboard. Means I gotta get the performance tracks all cleaned up – now since I’ll be sitting and waiting for audio to render, I’m really hoping to have some time to sit behind a drum kit and hash out some new Ideas for Dale Tippett Jr and Tin Lolita – I’ve always enjoyed playing drums to get a guitar idea.
I’m not going to ask Auggie if I can use his kit – and I’m not worried about him finding out since he doesn’t read this blog! If he did, he’d probably leave a comment below and I’d feel just a little foolish. So if you’re not him, please don’t tell him. I think it would be a cute little experiment.
In other other news, check out Nikki’s new blog, Back Porch Confessionals.
It’s a collaborative effort between herself, my sister, and Auggie’s wife Dano. It’s about life around here, and dreaming big dreams. Hopefully I’ll have some big dreams pretty soon, but I’m pretty sure you need a good night’s sleep to get one o those. Well, the natives are getting restless, and now that the socks have been wrestled onto feet, and rocket shoes are primed for launch – imma push some kids on some swings. Hope you’re doing well, you guys!
