The Energizer Bunny

I haven't been posting very regularly (I'm sure you've noticed) because I have a little Energizer Bunny that visits me for eight hours every day.  Her name is May -- and because she's 13 months old, law dictates that she will always have more energy than I could imagine possible.

And I really mean it.  She's exactly like the bunny from the commercials.  If you set her down, she's gone... and there's no stopping her.  Ever.  Need proof?  I didn't, but I got it anyway.  My sister, Belle, was at dance practice in a church for a little over an hour yesterday.  And so, for a little over an hour, I ran after May as she explored the cavernous (at least to her) spaces of the gym, kitchen, foyer, sanctuary, annex, and etc.

At the end of the day, I was beat.  May, on the other hand, was just as fast and energetic as ever.

Anyway, that is why I have not been on the Internet lately.  Sometimes I'll get on to research something for school or check emails, but other than that, I'm on very little.  And my nanowrimo novel is still at 4,000 words, when it should be at ten times that.

I guess I'm venting a little bit about my loss of the freedom of time, but the truth is, I wouldn't give May up for anything.  It is such a privilege to be able to help take care of her while her mother is at work.  I've learned so much from her -- things like how to juggle reading Moby Dick and burping a baby at the same time, or how to deal with spit and runny noses and messy diapers.  It's hard work, but it's fun.  I wouldn't trade it for anything, because I know that taking care of May is Kingdom work.  I'm not, and my family is not, doing it for any reason except to give her a picture of love, peace, and happiness. 

So, now I'll leave you with a song, because the one thing I have been doing a lot of lately is listening to music.

  1. I thought you were going to mention how many batteries you go through with her! Or how the week-old batteries died today. Glad to see you posting again :)
