Pod Person

For as long as I have known Mr. Eris he has never been able to sit still and quietly concentrate. He paces during movies. I spend as much time "shush"ing him at church as I do the kids. His feet are always moving, even when he sleeps. And I have seen him finish six books in the 17 years we have been together.

For those of you who don't know, he is working on his MBA. Hopefully he will finish in June. Tonight he studied for over four hours, forcing himself to sit in front of his computer with papers in his hand, trying to cram into his brain all the information he will need for tomorrow's test.

Now he is sitting up in the chair. Asleep. What a man.

The Large Hadron Collider

We're very big on science here at the Eris house.

The other night Mr. Eris and I were enjoying watching Littlest Ms. Eris run back and forth, at full speed, between the living room chair and our bed. She would yell, "Charge!" and then hurl her not-so-little self 10 yards across the house. Each run ended with uncontrolled giggling. Until...

~Please know that I was thinking to myself, "I should probably stop her before someone gets hurt." But I didn't.~

Little Ms. Eris came up the stairs. We watched her shadow as she walked, unsuspectingly, into the pathway of her hurtling sister. The two collided with such force that I swear it looked like they passed through each other. They ended up on the opposite side of where they crashed - Littlest with a head wound.

We didn't recreate the Big Bang, but we came close to knocking them back in time.
