My son had oral surgery today and I got to stay home and be a mom. He's feeling much better thanks to the pain meds. Seeing him come out of the sedation was a little scary but after a while he was back to normal. He seemed to come through it alot better than I did a few months back.

It was freezing today and I swear this weather is affecting my disposition. I'm definitely a warm weather girl. At least there's no snow on the ground.

My guy and I are planning a weekend away pretty soon. I can't wait. Another step toward making time for each other. Until then, we'll have lunch together tomorrow.

Senator Obama is on Conan. These candidates certainly spend quite a bit of time on these talk shows. Speaking of the race to '08 ...what's with all the negativity and personal attacks? I'm sick of all of them.

I'm unsettled and I know I have to stop talking about it and actually do something about it. My mind is always racing. I'm thinking all the time: about my job, my kids, the economy, the future, why I'm not writing, how to handle my daughter when she starts high school next year, my siblings, my guy, etc. I've got to carve out time when my mind can be at rest. Even now, at 1:15 a.m. my mind is still racing.

Hope Your big boy is well. I know the feeling of dread when your kids go through prodedures. Rationally you know they'll be fine, but irrationally you think what if?

I people watch. I know it sounds silly but I just go somewhere and people watch...make up stories or scenarios about ppl that pass me by. Who they are, what they are doing, what the are thinking or feeling. Everything. Takes my mind off of me, helps me in my writing believe it or not since I am using my imagination and it sometimes I just laugh at what I come up with.
