Mercury Madness

Wednesday, March 13, 2013


Have you ever heard of Mercury retrograde?

I am not a huge follower of astrology, but for whatever reason this hit home for me.

Apparently when the planet Mercury starts turning backward, things start getting weird. You will mess up your calendar, things will get cancelled, machines will break down, etc.

In the past week, I have messed up two appointments and our washing machine is broken. Mercury retrograde or coincidence? I think the biggest shock to the system was that yesterday Wip took a nap (gasp!).


There was also a little confusion with our schedule on Tuesday. I needed Patrick to be home at 5:30 so I could head to a dinner downtown and he does not leave softball practice until 5:30. I told David to watch the boys until Patrick got home (about 10 minutes). Patrick came home to find Wip in front of a big bowl of ice cream and Duncan sucking on a lollipop...best babysitter ever?

This is classic! This will be something that repeats as you grow older and your wonderful boys grow! Love to see it for what it is
You and Patrick are wonderful parents.
