We are the World

I don't mean we as a collective body. I mean we as in Nathan, Mamoune, and Isaiah. They are the world -apparently.

On our way to visit friends yesterday, the kids persuaded me to drive through our old neighborhood. We moved out not quite a year ago. I laughed at first, when they started silliness like "oh Mom, I remember that tree...that mailbox...that car," etc. Then as we turned a corner, Isaiah says "Look, Goshen Circle -it's still there!"

Goshen Circle, as you may have guessed, is a street. A street with about 10 houses on it. I was like "ok, egomaniac doofuses. They didn't shut down the whole neighborhood just because we left." shrug

My insult was deflected without so much as a dent. We later drove toward the area of the barn that we spent a few months in. They asked "Mom, can we go by. Do you think it's still there?" Uh, no dear children. It's not there. They tore it down and erected a mighty shrine inscribed "the Sexton's once lived here" and people travel from all over the country too see it.

Doo-fu-ses.

I don't know why you are reading this with all that you are dealing with. Tim's blog is a church website issue -I'm helpless to fix it.

Millenders are voted on next Tuesday.

Praying, praying, praying, PRAYING for Lydie and you! Hang in there.

WHY am I reading this? Because you are my friend and I love you and I want to know what is happening outside of my life -- I am so sick of my life right now!!!! I need to expend energy reading up on my friends because otherwise I expend it on shaking my fist at the big man -- and I miss you.

Do you always call your children "freaks" and "dofusus"? Just remember, what you do now is an investment in the way you will be treated as an elderly alzheimer's patient!

lms -you're right but I figure if they won't take care of me I can always move in with my wonderful sister-in-law! ;-)

Tara-I love you and miss you, too. You are always welcomed to escape reality here! Kiss Lydie for me.
