party

“ooooh, are we having a party?”  “no, why?” “because you bought a party bulb.”

par•ty  n.  A group of people who have gathered to participate in an activity.

well, in that case…this family is a party.  we gather, we participate, we have activity. it doesnt’ say it has to be fun or satisfying or even tolerable.  it just says that we are a group of people gathering and participating.  all pressure off.  the rest is bonus. i like that.

then we moved her back with the aforementioned party bulb.  it’s suggested that the red light helps neutralize things and they won’t peck each other as much.

it worked.

when i unload the dishwasher, it brings me great joy if there is a complete rainbow.  putting them away in that order increases the joy.  small things.

i’m seeking sunshine as eagerly as they do on this.  maybe i wouldn’t be as happy in portland as i think.

and then there is the after party life.  with things out of place and messes to clean up.  full of good food and memories.  a little cranky from too little sleep. that fits for sure. party on.
