I blew it.

Holding hands in bed. Watching Last Comic Standing.
Sigh.
"Tim?"
"Yesh?"
"I want to do something."
"Like what?"
"I dunno." Sigh. "Something different. Let's go somewhere."
"Like where?"
"I dunno." "Let's move." "Can we go live with Suzanne and Phillip?"
"No."
Hug.
Return to lathargic lump position.
Simultaneous Sigh.
Faces return to crappy show.
"Tim?"
"Yeah, honey."
"Lemme give you a mohawk."
No Sigh.
Turn to meet each other's gaze. Wife with one eyebrow up. Husband smiling.
"Okay."
"Okay?"
"Okay, go get the clippers."

We both shot out of bed like two toddlers on Xmas day. Into the bathroom. Clippers on. This rocks! I was so excited that I was shaking. I took off some patches first. Giggled. Made him look in the mirror. I buzzed most of the sides off and started to shape it.

"Thinner."
"Okay, lemme just work from the outside in." Giggle.
"Thinner."
"Okay, let me think about this. I'm too excited. I need to slow down." Giggle.
"Thinner."
Buzz. zittzz!
"DAMN IT!!!"
Both look in the mirror. Wife frowning. Husband squinting.
"You ruined it."
"I KNOW! DAMN IT! I was too excited. Wait. I can fix it. It's not so bad."
"No. You ruined it." Sigh. "I can't believe you ruined it."
"Me neither." "It's lopsided."
Simultaneous Sigh.
"At least your hair grows fast."
"Yes, yes it does."

That's hilarious! I love that Tim is willing to be your guinea pig. I'm calling you this weekend to see about hanging out next week if you're feeling up to it.

Angela,
Sorry our moving caused Tim to have a lopsided mohawk, but it looks really, really cute. I can't even begin to think about the fact that tomorrow night is Friday night baby date night . . .

Funny. I'm sitting here staring at the computer screen thinking the same thing when my mailbox chimed....
I miss you guys.
What the hell are we gonna do tomorrow?

Friday nights will never be the same now that we can't be with you guys regularly. I just now saw the "Missing Pieces" picture you posted and my heart is aching very deeply. I feel like there must be some song with lyrics that suit the situation . . . you know like one we listened to in 7th grade? This is awful.
Love,
Suzanne

I love you guys! Tonight was hard, but it'll be fine, just different.
I'm going to make Audrey repeat "Kitely" nightly.
It still amazes me how choked up I get thinking about it.
