The exercise:

Write two haiku about: vandals.

More progress was made with the strawberry patch. Still feeling way behind, but every little bit helps I suppose.

After only napping for around an hour the last couple of afternoons, Max slept for almost three hours today. Of course I woke up after an hour and a half and couldn't get back to sleep, but it was still good. I actually had to wake him up so that we didn't end up having dinner too late, as well as pushing his bedtime back.

Who knows how much longer he would have gone if we'd let him?

Tomorrow morning brings the 18 month vaccination shots. At least it's only two shots this time, compared to the four at 12 months. Also: it's the last time we have to go through this for a very long time

Edit: sorry this is up so late, our internet connection went down just as I finished writing it last night and didn't come back before I had to go to sleep. T-minus 2 weeks and counting until the new service is up and running...

Mine:

A touch of paint here,
This rock through that window there;
Mute feelings expressed.

A steady hand sprays
black words on yellow buses:
Leave Our Kids Alone

Ah, I did wonder why your post wasn't up when I checked this morning (ok, around lunchtime, it's been a stressfully busy day!). I'm glad there were no emergencies that delayed the posting! And good luck with the vaccinations! I'd suggest having something Max likes eating with you to give him straight after the needles, to distract him from the pain :)

I think I like your first haiku better today, though the idea of vandals quoting Pink Floyd is intriguing to say the least :)

Vandals
My sandals are made
by a fashionable brand...
I call them Vandals.

It's the music to
Create urban art around.
They are the Van Dahls.

Greg - yeah, I'm glad there were no emergencies involved in the delay too. And I hope your days become less busy, or at least less stressful!

Two clever haiku, but I have to say I like your second best. Pretty sure I'd buy that album :)
