This is one of those weeks. It's not a bad one, but it is chock full of Little Things That Must Be Done. Preferably without a toddler at my knee. But damn you! And all your Blogs That Beckon. Quit updating because I care FAR more about all those Little Things going on in your life than dealing with those in mine.
Anyway, I am on the hunt for a rocker. Not a mega-expensive, super fancy glider. A plain, basic, wooden ROCKER - a nice old-fashioned Kitty Tail Cruncher. Something that later on can lurk in my basement for decades, then be passed to my heirs so that a hundred years from now they can take it the Antiques Roadshow to witness Leslie and Leigh Keno's descendents get so excited over it they can't contain their stiffies as they try to hump it - which by then will probably be perfectly acceptable on live TV. Folks, I want THAT kind of rocker.
When I was pregnant with Arun, I had no idea I would use one - my sister hadn't, so I didn't bother buying anything. About 6 months in with Arun we realized that he would probably appreciate a little rockin'. However, as Arun would be my only "little" baby since we were going to adopt Kid #2 hahahahahahaha, I didn't really want to buy a NEW rocker. So, I found one at a garage sale and it's done quite nicely, except for the fact that it is BROKEN and on the verge of COLLAPSING. And if you read yesterday's post, you are aware that I am not going to be losing weight anytime soon, yes. We have an increasing need for another rocker. However. I've perused several furniture stores and am at a loss. Innernets, where the hell does one find a ROCKER these days?? Am I just stupid?? Wait, don't answer that one.
