I'll leave you with Today's Fun Quote from Lovely Daughter, who is not-so-patiently-waiting for a check to arrive in the mail:
Young Son and I shipped off a couple of boxes of cookies for Operation Baking GALS. With luck, two servicemembers in the Middle East will soon be opening boxes that may or may not contain one or more intact and mold-free cookies. We can only hope. Young Son and I ate plenty of cookie dough, just to be sure it was safe. It was a sacrifice, but it had to be done. For our folks in uniform, you know. Mr B and I took off across the bridge to the Other Peninsula and ended up at the Very Top Left Corner of the Country! I'm a big enough geek to think that's completely cool. I waved at Canada, too; always fun. Been there, done that We took Young Son to the Gi-normous Arcade in the Big City. Since I am generally adverse to displaying my x-treme lack of skilz in public (or in private, for that matter) I carried the tickets and provided much-appreciated gaming advice while Mr B and Young Son tore the place up. I also enjoyed some primo people-watching -- enhanced by a gaming convention in town -- that made the statistics conference look like an Abercrombie & Fitch photo shoot. Amazing.
I'm so proud. As they say, it takes one to make one.
