It's Wednesday!

I'm afraid my 6yo's teacher thinks she's being raised in a crack house, what with the pace at which we complete her homework, the capris worn to school in November, the terrifying rate at which my child reveals information about her home life that, while true, has been slightly skewed, and the fact that I declined to plan a Halloween Party on rather short notice.

I'm also afraid I inadvertently volunteered to plan said party at some point, but I'm afraid to ask.

I'm afraid of how BAD it would have looked had anybody seen the gigantic picture of somebody ELSE'S husband in swim trunks (on a scout trip) that spontaneously appeared in full-screen on my monitor after I unknowingly activated Picasa's screensaver one day last week.

I'm afraid our local scoutmaster needs to stop borrowing my camera for scout trips.

I'm afraid that requiring my 11yo to give up her friendly but hopelessly pungent hamster (even if it was to a very nice dad who sweetly brought her a brand new Littlest Petshop pet in return) was the coldest thing I've ever done as a mother. Even if she did inherit a unscented hamster from her older sister, and even if she had the maturity to understand and accept the situation without tears or argument.

I'm afraid the nice dad is feeding Peanut the hamster to his pet snake right now.

I'm afraid that the gigantic alien robot/vehicle monologue playing in my living room right now is less dramatic than it is laughably cheesy. So, so cheesy!

I'm afraid that 87% off Halloween clearance was more than I could resist.

I'm afraid that even though I want to write a fabulous post about some of the fantastic things that people I love dearly have accomplished lately, I just can't do them any justice at this hour.

I'm afraid this post of questionable quality is all you get.

Ok, and some pretty pictures I couldn't resist taking:

On the bright side, I'm off to bed! Hooray!

PS - What would you have done with the hamster?

I love that tree on Kerrisdale!

me too! And I wouldn't have allowed the hamster in the first place so you're a better mom than I am.

"Accidentally" left the cage open and helped the little guy scurry into the wild blue yonder by leaving several doors open.....
