today, a man who was easily in his eighties blew me a kiss as he left the store. i can't even begin to tell you how cute this was. being popular amongst octogenarians isn't bad.

and my annual bout with laryngitis/bronchitis has begun. every single november, which is a month that has very little going for it to begin with. did you know more serial killers are born in november than any other month? there's your fun fact of the day, which i would tell you if i had any voice left at all. sigh.

ONE THOUSAND pageviews? who the hell is reading this crap??


i posted a link to my favorite heart-breaking, thought-provoking blog today. go read today's post on Momastery, entitled "nets". a sweet friend commented with the following: "this resonates with you because you are always willing to be a net, for anyone. really. i'm not the only one that believes this, so think about that.... the next time you feel skinless." i will carry that beautiful compliment in my heart. it is one of the best things ever said to me. thank you, n, for thinking this of me. I feel loved.

day two of migraine. third grade strings performance is about the last thing i want to spend my evening attending. don't misunderstand; i love watching my babies do this kind of stuff. but let's not kid ourselves. the level of skill and talent at this age is nil. are earplugs bad form?

"In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices." -Elizabeth Gilbert
