I'll never~ever~ever give up!

I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.

to the man of my dreams (most days),

My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!

I'm not sure either one of us are really "normal" but close enough!! LOL Hope that foot is healing and the shoes will be good for the trip. I'm still looking, trying to decide.

Beth has been helping me chase the blues away. I had a list of why I feel unhappy and later deleted it but she made her comment while the list was up there. I think I am paying too much attention to a bad mood so I deleted the details on it. Pretty mundane stuff.

How is you foot? Do yo have a scary scar?

The thing that annoyed me about that "learn to cook" article was . . . yet another means of making us beleaguered parents feel guilty and inadequate, right? We do the best we can, really we do, and sometimes . . .

I am an animation junkie (anything PIXAR, DISNEY, OR DREAMSCAPE) and I've been dying to see it. Don't have kids or nephews...and I didn't want to get arrested for stalking kids to see it. Wasn't successful in finding any listings for RENT A KID. {...but I've heard some people would love to donate them every now and then. emoticon

FROZEN was wonderful...can't stop singing LET IT GO. Love the news story about the firefighters singing it to the little girl who was trapped in the elevator
