I'm still in Palm Springs. We're hanginout inside right now because it's a little too bright and hot outdoors right now. But I'm looking forward to swimming.
The kids are doing art with all of the markers and crayons and gel-pens and paper I bought and brought along. Celene asked me to write a few sentences down and she is practicing them. Hello, how are you? What's your name? Etc.
We're watching the rerun of Real World. I am loving these reality based shows. I'm really looking forward to seeing Big Brother. I haven't even seen it once and I was so ready for it what with that massive barrage of pre-publicity.
People have complained about the noise the kids made a couple of nights when they were out at the pool really late. The problem with this place is that it was supposed to be a small vacation community, so people were used to a bit of fun and wildness. But now most of the original members have gone on to greener pastures, and they have sold their homes or given them to their children, and the new owners have moved in year round and are fighting for rights and territory. It's so gross. It used to be fun. Our house is of course in the absolute worst position, right in front of the pool, with zero privacy and Mom's funky furniture, Argh. Oh well.
These kids are driving me out of my friggin' mind. Well, at least the two little ones, they can be really sweet, but they are mostly like wild, little untamed animals, who screech and clamber all over everything, and fight and shout and bug me to death. This is not a vacation. Although at times it is special in it's own way.
Last night we went to see Scary Movie. Woah that kind of blew me away. It was funny but man, some of the stuff they did was kinda shocking. Like the gym teachers balls hanging out of her shorts and the penis that cane out of the glory hole in the bathroom stall and shot through that guys head, yeeeee.
I just switched from Oprah to Rosy. I loooove Oprah but I have to be honest and say that when I watch her show, I start to feel really heavy and depressed. I'm not quite sure why. Maybe it's because I become aware of how much work I have to do on myself. Today I'm needing lightness and humor.
I got a new cat yesterday. He was at a shelter kind of place and looked so sad and cute. he purrs so loudly and non stop. He's black with little stripes of dark grey. They were calling him shadow. I don't know if we'll keep it or not, the name, not the sweet little kitty, he's ours for life.
I got a book about dousing and reading auras. The kids have been going around with the dousing rods looking for lost toys.
I miss my Scott.
Hey, at least my Mom can't come honking up in her ugly Caddy.
Chicken movie for the kids tonight.
Palm Springs is really pretty at night.
Do you guys still love me?
I love you,
