Nothing Gold

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay. -Robert Frost

I am a white American middle class suburban housewife trying desperately to tell herself that that is not who she is. One time I was a glowing young ruffian. Oh my God it was a million years ago.

It's Starting

Levi came home from school with a fat envelope the other day and he didn't know what it was. I opened it up when we got home and found out that he's supposed to be selling stuff. Already?! He's not even 4 yet. I'm pretty annoyed. The thing he's selling is the 2008 Entertainment book. If that sounds like something you want, you can order one online and support his school. Go to and use seller # 192070. That's about all the selling I'm willing to do.

Oh yeah, don't you just love it. I think the Entertainment book is cooler than say - Joe Corbi's Pizza Kits (which I personnaly dispise). But, of course, the Girl Scout Cookies are BEST. Did you get my link for wrapping paper ;-)

(Some days I so don't love being a parent...)

I hate it when my students come up to me and want me to buy a $20 box of chocolate or a $35 candle. Or when you go to get gas and are accosted by bikini clad teenagers wanting to wash your car for a donation to their soccer team. I want to lean outside the window and say get a summer job or ask your parents to give you the money, but leave me alone, today all of my money is going to Sunoco.
