Tonight the walls are too confining. My skin itches to feel the balm of a summer night and not the pinpricks of an air conditioned chill. My legs want to stretch out under the dashboard of my car, right foot meeting accelerator, and drive under the moon. Wanderlust seems to creep in right in those seasons when it is the most impossible- escape the most improbable. But I acknowledge it anyway, ticking off in my mind all of the places I want to see.

And to ease the restlessness, I will tell myself that it’s ok to dream. It’s right to experience longing for escape when motherhood can leave us feeling so trapped. So tapped out. And I will grab a travel narrative off of the shelf, open the windows, and pray that until my mind lets go and surrenders to sleep that my babies will dream their dreams. Because I need to dream mine too.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  2. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something relating to this.

  4. Don’t worry about stopping and starting, just carry out a
    regular masturbation. All live their lives the best they could in their community:
    work and play are the exact same, in accordance with everyone’s interests; friendships
    are the identical, considering that many people are either prejudiced against Gay males and females yet others merely cautious;
    Gay everyone has pets, interests, jobs, cars, a property
    and family the identical as the majority of people. At the same time, the United States Constitution also protects the right to individual liberty as well as the freedom of religion.

  5. Beuh ..Pourquoi il y a mon ancien pseudo ?Bon, très bien l’article Darth et je ne manquerai pas de te poser une ou deux question quand je me serais décidé pour l’achat d’un beau flash Ah oui, chopperrette. Amuse toi bien avec ton trépied 😉 Désolé pour l’autre message, j’ai été frappé de troll attitude… Il(s) me manquerait presque !!

  6. Surtout que le stock d’or physique à l’air bien inférieur à l’or papier qui existe. Tout le monde ds ce domaine me le dit, le jour où tu as des sous à placer : achètes de l’or physique (pièces, lingots) ou de l’argent métal.

  7. Well I’ve done this twice now and it’s worked.take off that overflow plate above your drain (usually a screw).Take a wire coat hanger and cut it straight. Put a little hook on the end (about 1/2″)stick the coat hanger down the drain as far as you can go..and then spin it around.Pull out..hopefully you’ll have a huge glob of smelly hair.It’s totally gross.Good luck to you and I hope this job doesn’t DRAIN your energy.

  8. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so
    much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive
    the message home a bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.
    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

  9. i’m a graphic designer, so i should care about picture quality, but i find that for almost everything, DVD is good enough and steaming TV is adequate, if not perfect.and if i have to deal with DRM on blu-ray, then i probably can’t be bothered for a while until the discs become cheap enough that the studios don’t care

  10. rubenmoon Why would I work really hard at making my page the way I want it to look when other people will only physically see way not the same way? The sequence is all different with an added post that I don’t see from my computer. That’s so weird, to design something for people not to see it the way you designed it or sequenced it?????

  11. Have you listened to Bill Burr’s podcast? He kind of hybridizes the two poles in a really quick but entertaining way. He might start off withsomething along the lines of “ProFlowers, everybody, time to buy your broad some dumbass plants that’ll be dead in a week.” Before returning to the website and offer code he’ll go another 20 seconds complaining about Valentine’s Day or Mothers’ Day or what have you, but he wraps up the whole thing in a minute or so and gets back to it. Very conversational without being fifteen minutes long.Also as egards Jay Mohr’s

  12. Utente Anonimo23/11/2009Portate il discorso su argomenti che richiedano acume e sottigliezza vi saprà sciogliere il nodo gordiano di tutto, come la sua giarrettiera… Shakespeare per il suo Enrico V sceglie il taglio netto, la risoluzione brutale. E forse in certe situazioni è l’ unica via d’ uscita. gabri

  13. Once I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any manner you may take away me from that service? Thanks! Facebook.com/FitnessGirlbr <– Take a look.

  14. Another advantage of a meal plan is staying on plan if you’re dieting. I do the same as you, plan the week’s meals (based on sale items and what’s in my freezer/pantry) and then shop for the missing items. I keep the meal plan on the fridge all week so we all know what’s for dinner that night and I actually make it happen!

  15. Don’t worry about stopping and starting,
    just perform a regular masturbation. Women who experience unevenness in inner and outer vaginal lips see that
    apart from the unsightliness that the extra tissue causes,
    in addition, it makes them susceptible to chaffing, along with discomfort during sports and sex.
    By treating being hooked on pornography, you’ll
    be able to at least improve your future and what is to come.

  16. Thanks for your post. One other thing is individual states have their very own laws in which affect property owners, which makes it very difficult for the the nation’s lawmakers to come up with a fresh set of guidelines concerning foreclosures on people. The problem is that a state provides own laws which may interact in an adverse manner in relation to foreclosure policies.

  17. Micheal Thanks a lot! Finally I got to see my citation in the compiled .rtf document.But somehow none of my footnotes show up in the “Note” section which supposedly “Any footnotes you created in your paper will get inserted here upon Compile (this purple bubble will be removed automatically”. when I compile my conference paper into doc file; i can see the footnotes; but RTF file seems to rip off the notes. Do you happen to have any clue???
