And just so you don’t think I’m a complete basket case

I really don't spend ALL my time sitting around weeping about the past.

The wee one and I had a wonderful Friday night date night, wherein we were the super nerdy nerds who were first in line for the 9 pm showing of Percy Jackson. This is a full hour and a half past his normal bedtime, so I let him enjoy a nice, late night buzz of sour patch kids and sips of my Coke. We had a great time. He loved the movie even though it scared the shit out of him at first. (Yikes, Mrs. Dodds!) And he REALLY loved being out late at night.

I also got great news from my agent today… I'm allowed to share the cover art for the BRAINS book that's coming out in the fall. I've plastered it all over facebook and twitter, but if you haven't seen it yet, you can go to my KA Holt blog and check it out. (It's sooooo awesome.)

As a bribe for not being able to go to the movie tonight, I bought the wee-er one a doctor dress-up set and she spent all day in scrubs, administering shots and blood pressure checks to her babies and to the wee one. She is now determined to wear her scrubs to school. Who am I to say no?

And Ike-a-saurus spent the day eating his weight in 400 calorie chocolate and toddling around the house lickety split. I only fell down the stairs once trying to save him from himself.

So even though I keep posting these terrible down in the dumps things, I want you to know that really, I might not be as much of a basket case as I seem. I am working to find that funny groove again.

See, look, here's a knock knock joke for you:

Knock Knock
Who's there?
Ice cream soda
Ice cream soda who?
I scream soda people can hear me.

Thank you very much. I'll be here all night.

  1. Much love to you Kari. Your fortitude is inspiring. And I’m a little jealous that no one took me to see Percy Jackson late at night and stuffed me full of sour patch kids.


  2. I am completely in awe of you. And YEAH for date night with your son. That rocks. And YOU rock!
    Here’s a joke my five year old told me yesterday:
    Q: How do birds fly?
    A: They just wing it!
