umm... about that...

e was off playing poker with friends in markleville last night.

the oldest was off playing cosmic bowling and then having a sleepover for a friend's birthday.

the other three kids and i were snuggled up on the floor with blankets and pillows, eating egg and cheese sandwiches, watching practical magic, and having fun.  the girls were HORRIFIED that the witches in the movie didn't have big pointy hats and crooked noses with giant warts ;)  i let them know that in real life, real witches didn't look like that. real witches could be very sweet and nice.

open-mouthed stares.

"real witches?"

... long discussion ...

ending with "so mommy, when can we make spellbooks?"

Not endorsing it or anything, just showing that there is always somebody who does something.

You know, I did look into this. My spiritual self seems to be seeking some balance between Christianity and -this-, but I don't think this book is quite it. For me anyway.

I read tarot. That alone can get me kicked out of "the club". I believe in [and talk to] ghosts... But I'm not sure how it all works together.

"...real witches could be very sweet and nice."

Or could be very hair and have a dislike for Switzerland... but you know, what ever.

Congrats on being able to have that conversation, many can't. They are lucky to be able to discuss such things.

yeah... "could be". I can't even pretend that all of everyone is always anything.

Except me... I'm awesome :p Thanks ;)

Can't argue with that now can I?

Oh, and tell E that he needs to have a weekend poker night at some point and tell me about it... I miss hanging out up there!

Chloe refuses to believe that real life witches aren't any uglier than "regular" people. Actually, she refuses to believe that witches exist in real life, even though I told her that I know a few!
