Sorry for the whine from yesterday - nothing's changed, except the resignation on our part. BFF (Chrissy) has cheered me up in the best way possible: mocking my children. God, I love that woman. Emily (4 years old) sent "Aunt Chrissy" an email. Here is their exchange:
Can't understand a word. Are you home-schooled?
She then sent a second email chastising me for my daughter's underdeveloped reptilian brain, and how this is a sign of my bad parenting, and how even worm babies can communicate better. Ahahaha! Also, books! She sent me a package of books!

Anyone read any of these? Thoughts? Commentary? Cookies? Her plane will land 7 days from RIGHT NOW. I am so excited to have her come for a visit!! It's been almost a YEAR. That's too long.
THIS INTERVIEW with Bill O'Reilly and David Letterman made me squirm, but feel joy about David. "60% of what you say is crap." I'd say that number is higher, but I'm glad he said it. And then you have Stephen Colbert and Conan O'Brien mocking it? Ahahahaha!!!
I spent an HOUR on this site - it certainly kills time in a pleasant way. Nice, peaceful, slightly odd in spots, and completely worksafe. I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Friday, the weekend's almost here officially. I smooch you all!!
