Gotta tell ya. When I turn on the 11PM news and hear the
breaking news about car wrecks and death and shootings and death, I am supremely happy that my children are asleep upstairs.

God. What a world.

4. I missed the news. I was out buying masks to prevent the swine flu.
So, there was some scary stuff, huh?


I'm glad your kids are upstairs asleep, too, Midlo.

7. last week, the drug dealer across the street from us
had his truck utterly destroyed. Slashed tires, smashed windows.

A targeted attacked, because Mr. had his car in the street almost directly across from this truck and the kid's step dad's truck was parked in the street behind the kid's.

Something went wrong. That's for sure.
