Loss for words, kind of..

I have had so many things going on and so many things to say that I can't think of them right now. Does that ever happen to you? I've just got so much, I don't know where to start, and I'm not quite sure where I'd end up...even scarier prospect.

To summarize the events of the last few days:
I had a crazy weekend. Helped Joe and Liz move. Went to a great Sweet 16 party. Got no sleep. Visited old friends. Heard from Nick (so relieved). Learned that motherhood is far more than it's cracked up to be. Made a lovely dinner for mom with mom-less (due to location) friends.

I think that's about it. I was in knots not hearing back from Nick for so long. Especially after he'd told me how scary his brief was before his latest mission. I'm so glad he's back and safe. I can't wait until he gets home. I hope it's soon. We're going to make such a scene when we see him...can't wait.

I'm horrified by the news coming out of Iraq. Have you checked Fox News?

Apparently, there's footage of an American being beheaded by terrorists. I can hardly breathe. I'm so sickened. I'm sure it's not going to be shown by the major media outlets, though they've bombarded us with images of our grotesque actions toward POW's. Now, I am ashamed of what happened, mostly because those reckless soldiers made vulnerable every last soldier in the middle east. They risked the safety of their fellow soldiers, and for that, they should be severely punished. However, we won't see images of what Palestinians and other terrorists do to innocents because that would support the war, and God forbid the media do that. Oy, I don't wanna go down this track right now. Too many emotions about the whole situation as it is.

Well, have a lovely Tuesday. I'm listening to country music more than ever, because it reminds me that the whole world isn't going to hell. :) at least yet.... :)

Em, what a wonderful dinner you, Mindy and Jaylena cooked up for me! Delicious. The company was fantastic. I could not have had a better Mother's Day. Thank you. And thank you Mindy and Jaylena for the beautiful flowers (they're now potted on our front porch:).

You are the best,
