Found this in the tagline of someone's email today:
If you want happiness for an hour—take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day—go fishing.
If you want happiness for a month—get married.
If you want happiness for a year—inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime—help others. -Chinese proverb
I like that.
Flying is getting to be hazardous to a mother's peace of mind. Put DD on the plane today.. we were lucky and got to the terminal early and she got an early flight into Atlanta. But the flight out of Atlanta.. oh dear. She wasn't able to get an earlier flight to her final destination, and her scheduled flight had problems. :( The engine had an oil leak and the pilot didn't want to fly it. So they moved her to another concourse and she's gonna be about an hour later getting in.
I think she's begining to realize why Mom had her fly a day before she absolutely had to be back.
One of the members on crochetville husband was found unresponsive beside his car/truck yesterday. The paramedics were unable to revive him. She's a sahm and has two young daughters. I feel for her.. having lost my dad when I was young.
DS is trying to fail senior english AGAIN. I don't know what to do with the boy. I'm not gonna pay for college for him to screw up like this. He'll have to go out and get a job and support himself if he fails college. Of course, if he doesn't graduate, the university he's interested in isn't going to want him.
Went to the HL after dropping dd at the airport.. nice to shop in a place where they actually have large stores for a change. Found some "I Love This Yarn" yarn... reminds me a lot of Caron Simply Soft. The skeins are 7oz and cost 1.99! The color selection was limited (burgundy, red, navy, royal and white) but I bought 2 red, 2 royal and 3 white.. thinking of doing something for the Taps Project.
We have a new driveway.. it's pretty. no more bumps and holes. we can drive on it.. but can't park on it for another day or so.
