Thank Goodness for wonderful friends!

So, I have a way of collecting sweet, fun, Southern friends who melt my heart with affection for my children! Not to be left un-appreciated, I had to send my friend Leah a cute ecard to thank her for some adorable Converse shoes she picked up for the baby B's this past weekend! What a thoughtful gesture! (And YES, mama! I will ALSO WRITE HER A NOTE of thanks too! ) ;) Check out the Jib Jab I sent her here! Check out the cute punkin pies too!

"Volunteerism" should only be called so when it is done by choice!

The American way seems to have shifted from "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" to- "I want what I want, and I WANT it now!"- another example bubbling to the surface here, is how people don't understand the difference between working for something and being handed something! It seriously makes my mind want to explode! I'm beginning to detect a pattern here... Moving on- the kiddos had their first day of school this morning with their new teacher Mrs. Perry. She had some grooving tunes playing for their arrival (Itsy Bitsy Spider set to Schoolhouse rock type music) Very cool! Kids RAN in- and said- "LEAVE! I wanna play!" Ahhh.. being a parent is relentless on the heart...

Michelle Malkin- where have you been all my married, conservative life?

I may have found my long lost sister- Michelle Malkin! Geeze, could there be a more spot on chick to enjoy reading? ;) Check out her post here on the mortgage crisis and a local SFO newspapers write up on a poor, "helpless" mortgagee. Rock RIGHT ON Michelle!
