In real time (unless, you know, you are reading this at 9:13 am, then it's not real anymore...) :)
I'm sitting here, in my bed, having just watched "Salt" (which I scratched my head and said "I'm confused" throughout most of), and anticipating the Memorial Day holiday tomorrow.
I'm not sure how many times I've said it here before, but I am SO grateful for our military, past and present, and their families. The sacrifices you ALL make (made) for us, for our freedom, for our ability to live the American Dream is so incredible, that I find myself at a loss for words to express my gratitude...
So, I will just say, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. And God Bless you.
In further "real time" news, I'm tired, fighting off the plague that is causing the younger two of my children to bark like seals, and worrying about the forecast. With all the horrific storms in Missouri and, what feels like, the rest of America, when I see a forecast that predicts storms that "may be severe", it puts me on edge.
My husband is snoring. Sleeping like a little baby (well, a little snoring baby) right beside me. I'm looking at him, amazed by how much I still really like the guy, all these years later! ;)
I'm worrying about a talk that I need to have with two of my kids tomorrow...seems as if the three letter "s" word has been being tossed around a bit by them. This is the part of parenting that I don't enjoy so much. The fact that my kids, who, at 7 and 9, aren't necessarily ready, in MY mind, to learn about some aspects of human nature, hear things away from home that necessitate conversations like I'm about to have.
Wish me luck on that one.
And with that, I bid you goodnight.
