Juicy Couture and Hitler

As a child, my Bapo taped The Sound of Music for us from the TV. He stopped the recording at the Von Trapp's wedding because he thought the part about the Nazi's was too intense. I lived a long time thinking everything was just singing and leiderhosen for the Von Trapps.

I was watching Away We Go this week, and the following dialogue really captured a great attitude about parenting:

A: Hey, so, the movie ends when
the von Trapps go to sleep?

B: (SOFTLY) Yeah, we sort of skipped it.

A: You skipped the Nazis?

B: We kind of figured,
"What's the point?"

A: It is just that we think they could
live a few more happy years before, you know,
Juicy Couture and Hitler.

Bitter much?

I just unfriended a college acquaintance on Facebook because she is pregnant, and I don't want to hear about it. Bitter much?

The silence

Oh dear and lovely blog,

I have been silent for what seems like forever. Life can sometimes kick you in the teeth, and if it were all about me, I would fill you in. Wisehubby, well, he's not ready for full disclosure. So, until then, deal. My life is a partnership, and I have to respect that.

Book Spine Poetry - Chipper Girl

Chipper girl in the cage
Escape the mask
Living with depression
Ever after ever

The above poem was written by searching for books in the library and stacking their titles. It's a little depressing, but I liked it.
