HOLY BUSY

I am now here:










But had been here a few days ago......






Needless to say, I'm a little crazy after 15 hours of travel time with a 9 and an 8 year old...not cooperative travlers to say the least....Them:  "I need a snack" "He hit me" "I want the window seat" "He took my PSP" "He called me a dummy"
Me: "Okay, you just ate you're going to be okay" "No hitting please we are on an airplane" "You'll get the window seat on the connecting flight" "Share the PSP or I'll have to take it away" "No name calling guys" then it goes to threats "Shut up right now or when we get off this plane......"  "I've had it, you're both selfish, other people have paid good money to be on this plane" (as if they're concerned with this) and finally, "You're not getting anything from Santa...you're on the the bad list for sure"
It's amazing how children can hold adults hostage and reduce them (me) to blubbering messes in very little time.
Okay....so that is why I haven't been on my blog...time change, mental breakdown, etc.
I finished reading Howard's End and am finishing A Passage to India (snore).  I have had the most trying time writing a review for Howard's End....a complete block.  Anything I write sounds contrived or completely boring.  I'm not sure why.  I would be interested in posting two contrasting reviews of Howard's End if anyone out there would be willing.  Let me know!  Okay, off to fight some more battles in the name of parenthood.  Wish me luck...I might be Baker Acted by Christmas.

You are indeed crazy busy it looks like. Aren't traveling with children fun?

And throughout all of it, you've polished off two books. I don't know how you do it!
