    This morning I woke around 4:45am. Showered, ran out and got the paper. Read it. Done with all about 5:45, wanted to leave the house by about 6. Figured I could get online and read headlines, since the paper was printed.

    Wrongo! Email from youngest waiting.
    Discussing Spring Break means me giving up my car so he can visit his girlfriend. Not going to happen.

    The musical did, I'm $170 poorer. :laugh:

    :laugh: I loved Team America. Now as you can see, my son is a bit older and 'concerned' about those others. We'll see the musical and argue over dinner. I figure, 'wait 10 years' or less. :laugh: He's really smart, but wants to be his own 'man.'

    i was like that at his age...wanted to save the world, didn't care nearly as much for myself (or family) as I did people I wasn't related to or never even met. That changed not long after I got married. Probably when I got pregnant with Nathan.

    Now, it's the other way around. I care about myself more because I have the desire to be there for my kids' every moment that I can, so I take care of myself better.

    I care so much about my family's happiness, and love to see them smile and be happy and content, but not to the point where I am not because I sacrifice too much.

    I have gone to church, hair & make-up done, wearing black pants, a nice sweater, and a lurid wooden-bead-and-painted-macaroni necklace. :D

    I forgot to take the make-up off once, after a "make-over". Neighbour pointing and laughing. Not nice!

    My second grader had a school project. She had to write a "book" on any subject. Her topic? My hair. She had my head weighted down with masses of barrettes in various configurations, took photos, and put them together in a "book."
