Yes, Those are Craters Under Her Eyes and They Don't Go Disappear with Sleep

Tonight, the Matron's vast blogging plans were thwarted by a power outage! She was thoroughly annoyed because her family had a perfect blogging day, a Sunday full of Narrative and Thrill. But, time has ticked itself away and that must wait until tomorrow.

So the power outage meant the Matron didn't have her hour of blogging! She was visibly grumpy until Scarlett slogged through the camp gear, found her headlamp and offered this -- the most precious, perfect lighting apparatus -- to her mother. The Matron was able to read and write, if not surf the net or blog.

Slim verbal offerings, thanks to Xcel Energy . . but! A rare sighting of the Matron! Scarlett took this picture, all aflutter over the sight of her mama wearing a head lamp.

Oh, the Simpsonathon? Ended yesterday -- Day Six, 4:37 pm. Stryker is still bumping into furniture, that dazed.

Why, the Matron isn't all that Matron-ly. The Matron is a cute little thing!

Well, there you are! :)

The last time I saw a headlamp of that ilk? On my gynecologist.

That is awesome! I was just thinking I need to buy a nightlight for when the baby is born, but a headlamp would be even better. I could even sleep with it strapped to my head for added convenience.

There's the Matron. She looks far from Matronly - she is hawt!

The headlamp is great.

Jocelyn said...

You are darling.

I sleep with a headlamp by my bed.

Just sayin'.

I own my OWN headlamp, thank you. Actually, during the winter months the headlamp is handy for when I'm walking out of the park with the dogs. It's interesting how darkness falls and, suddenly, a familiar path seems dark and scary.
