Daily Foglifter: An adage is a short saying that transmits wisdom. The word “adage” comes from the Latin adagium formed by the prefix ad- (to, toward, and about) and agium (from agio-I say)
I have officially hit the wall. Crazy sleep patterns, commitments at the kids’ schools, a forgotten cake order, the stomach flu, and The Blog have caught up with me. My mind and my body want rest. I’m going to oblige. After I pull an all-night “caking” session, of course. And get the kids on the bus, deliver the cake, go to an Easter Egg, er, “Spring Spheres” Hunt (a brilliant PC term actually being used by an elementary school in the U.S.A.–gag!), pick up the oldest from school, and go grocery shopping. And then I’m definitely going to rest. After I cook dinner. And do some laundry.
Something has to be left undone and since I have to take care of my kids and we have to eat and wear clothes, it’s The Blog. So, the Momfog Music Awards are rescheduled for Tuesday, April 19. I hope you can handle the suspense.
