the voices in her head


christine and ed just moved into the most fabulous historic house.  it backs up to the park and is walking distance from the burton barr library without having to cross any major streets.  the whole scene is rather dreamy.  the best part, however, is that lola coffee just opened a second little place just a block away.  hopefully, christine doesn't get suspicious if i want to come over to her house all the time...  



they have a huge selection of magazines, new and old (but mostly all new to me), which is lucy's favorite part.  the big cozy leather couch and a magazine.


lucy has been really into looking at magazines lately for some reason.  she likes to sit in her room looking at whatever catalogues come in the mail.  she usually turns to her craft box and ends up cutting the magazine to bits and making collages of all her favorite pictures.  but before she gets to that, she just sits and looks at every page over and over and over again.  the other day she was sitting on the couch looking at a target catalogue that had come in the mail.  she had been looking at it for a good 30 minutes when finn wondered in and before i knew it they were in a bit of a squabble.  i went to see what the problem was and this is what lucy told me: "i was trying to look at my magazine and talk inside my head, but finn kept trying to talk to me so i couldn't hear what was going on inside my head and then i got all dizzy from all the noise."  yikes.  i hope this doesn't qualify as something i should have checked out...

i love this story...and never fear, you're not alone. Audrey steals off with magazines all the time and gets awfully persnickety if you disturb her.
