We are moving in just over a month, but the end has begun already. Eleanor's boyfriend Felix, with whom she has enjoyed many a rag-chew, left for France last week and won't be coming back until after we've packed our bags and hauled.
This is deeply sad to me. I like Felix' mom Kelly so much, I'd hang out with her even if she DIDN'T live just next door and have a baby exactly my baby's age. So.
I had my last book club last week as well. Alas, for that. With whom else am I going to order All The Desserts?
And here's the thing: I love task clips. Only, I have never voiced aloud this love of task clips and all their myriad uses. And yet, a few years ago for Christmas, Robyn got me a batch of clips that say 'Merde' and 'Poop' on them. I use them to hold my bag of chips closed. And then my book club got me a set of clips that say 'Pffft' and 'Ugh' on them. They are keeping my electronic chargers corralled.
And then also they got Eleanor an Elephant. It jingles and she loves it a little bit frantically.
Good-bye, Kelly and Felix. Good-bye, book club.
