i came upon the conclusion a while back that everyone is busy and everyone is tired. i never think that i am any more busy or tired than anyone else-- we all just fill our time different ways. today, everyone in the robertson family is tired. i have been billing into the night and then sleeping on the couch the last couple of nights so i wont wake thomas up with my coughing and then i wake myself up with my coughing all night.
thomas is a busy social worker/musician/dad/husband...etc. and is tired.
ambrose coughs all night too and insists on waking up early every morning, so he's tired. we worked all day visiting clients from north shore mental health so his nap was cut in half, he's very very tired.
enough of the belly aching- here's the fun/busy part: we ran around windward mall in between appointments most of the day. ambrose is obsessed with the elevator and escalator and if he holds my hand i just let him do whatever he wants to fill the time. we ate cookies, pizza, and drank lots of soda (awesome). we met up with thomas for a bit. we bought halloween books/cds for ourselves (and for the buck and greene kids), we read halloween books, we made friends with a few elderly local couples in the resting area of the mall, we played in the play area for the longest time ever, we said hello to all the pets in the pet store... a few times, we dont want to go back to the mall and do the same things for a long, long time... but we might be back tomorrow.
want to see what a leprachun throwing a fit looks like? ok, here ya go:
oh yeah, and last night i met up with the book club that echo started and we celebrated reading our first book, captain blood, by dressing up as pirates, eating treats, and watching captain blood: the movie. we were specifically told to not smile and make a pirate face... i think i must have misunderstood and made a growling pup face, but it gets the fireceness across anyway.
