the yard in back

By Tara Zandra | May 15, 2007

Daisy took a relatively short nap and since she awoke the girls have been playing in the back yard. I assume they’ll come in at some point but so far they’re having a grand time.

Today is the day I get back to normal. I don’t mean my lingering illness, I mean it’s May; almost summer; more importantly, no longer February, March or April. I hate those months because every year I just drag through them with little to no motivation to do anything other than sit, eat, and be a slug. That’s not good for my kids, my house, or my arse. But today is different, I can feel it. Today is the day. I’ve been waiting for this day and it’s here. I’ve got itunes blasting some good stuff, I’ve cleaned out two major clutter areas, and the breeze is flowing through the house sweeping out the cobwebs of my soul. In half an hour Chris will be calling and our evening together can begin.

Do you know we met 13 years ago yesterday? I told him it was the luckiest day of my life, though he countered with it being him having the good luck. It really was nothing but happenstance that we met. For anyone who doesn’t know, the short version is we were both in line with friends for concert tix, my friend had gone to high school with Chris and the friend he was there with and asked if we could join them in line. Chris and I were introduced and that’s all it took for me to be smitten. Thank goodness for that concert- that none of us got tix to because a riot broke out and the riot police showed up and sent everyone home. We like to tell people we met at a riot :)

Sun, clean house, music, laughing kids. That’s what May is all about.

    That’s funny, I love winter and get depressed when I realize summer is coming. :) Actually I do enjoy warmer weather for the first couple of weeks, but I’m always through with it long before it’s through with me. I’ve lived in Southern California for 26 years and I still keep waiting for a real autumn, not just heat waves and wildfires!
