More Grateful Than Ever for My Mother

  • Egads, let's pretend this much time hasn't passed. 
  • Okay?
  • Okay.
  • I love pretending. 
  • I'm going to pretend that I'm not having a hard time writing these days.
  • I'm also going to pretend that I didn't just get sucked into Kate Plus 8.
  • I have sympathy for Kate.
  • You know, with those 8 and minus that 1.
  • Can't be easy.
  • But the girl gives me anxiety
  • Some or all of the 9 need a Xanax.
  • In fact, I feel like I need one.
  • And yet, I can't stop watching.
  • I should be asleep.
  • I'm in a terrible sleep pattern.
  • The pattern is stay up way too late, and then sleep in late or get up early feeling groggy.
  • If Kate were my mommy, she would scream at me to get to sleep.
  • I want to go to sleep, Kate, but you're scaring me.
  • I mean, bless your heart, but seriously.
  • Wow.
  • Okay, I'm going to bed now.
  • And expecting anxiety-ridden dreams.

You know what drives me nuts?

That the word buses doesn't have two Ss in the middle. It should be be busses, I say. That's been bothering me for years.
