I was thinking today how aggravating it is that the local Thai restaurant doesn't deliver, but really I think I'm more annoyed that the library doesn't deliver. don't you think? and also they should hire trustworthy people who will walk straight into my house and deposit those free books onto my lap while I lay on my couch.

A while ago I was standing in front of the sink doing dishes, and I opened the window in front of me so I could see the kids playing on the tramp; and all three of them were jumping and laughing and falling around on top of each other, so happy and young and perfect, I just froze; and all of a sudden my throat swelled up and my breath caught, everything seemed so lovely and breakable and transient.

And that was when I knew. I mean, I took a test later to be sure, but I don't usually sit around my kitchen crying over the Great and Tragic Beauty of Life unless I'm in the family way.
