...her own world of RuneScape

Blog Posted:8/8/2006 7:31:00 PM
After a reasonably easy day at work, here I sit at my CPU, momentarily (Don’t want to take too much time since my kids need my attention – I think we are playing cards tonight) writing what will be the concluding thoughts for my evening (Wait, that doesn't sound right, I will be thinking later). Happily, my daughter is by my side, although, immersed in her own world of RuneScape (I wish I could explain that game to you). School is about to start - Monday - so, she won’t see much of her favorite pastime; you know, with honors classes, etc. I keep telling her about the difficulty of honor’s chemistry – but as usual, she is oblivious. I guess that is what makes her so special, happy-go-lucky and smart - it's a gift I did not give. Hmmmmm, tacos for dinner. Oh, well poets (I would say “fellow poets” but I don’t want to dilute your talent) see you another PoetrySoup day….

    Perhaps a more lovely scene could not be set... - Hope you had a wonderful dinner, and an outstanding game of cards - Canasta's my favorite - could play for hours. And isn't it the truth about children - A close friend of mine's daughter just went back to school today and I had the pains in my stomach for her - I can't imagine how it will be when Ava goes next year. Yikes - Hope everything goes smoothly for your daughter! Have a great evening ~T
