Since we were on our way back from N.C., I didn't get to see it on TV, but my friend Jen let me know she watched it on CNN.com so of course I crusied over and watched it. Can you tell it was overcast and we had bright lights on us? Yeah, we were squinty.
On the plus side, the hours of grooming I did that morning paid off-not a gray hair in sight.
If you go to www.cnn.com and search in the videos it's called something like, "Six kids on $30K a year." No, not me! One kid is good with me, thanks.

Last night I started thinking about how blessed I am, how we all are. The cyclone in Myanmar and the earthquake in China really opened up my eyes to how people around the world suffer. I have a very provincial view of the world (don't a lot of Americans?) and I never pause to think about what other people might be going through.
I can't imagine what it's like to have your whole life wiped out in a few seconds. I do worry about tornadoes here in Georgia, which could literally wipe out everything we own, but at the same time, as long as I have my friends and family, life is good.
I get so caught up in material things, like making sure Addison's Under Armour baseball bag matches his Under Armour shoes that when I think about it I feel ridiculous.
I'm not trying to depress anybody, just sometimes I need a reality check to know that my life is full. Full of love and happiness and laughter and pride. That makes me whole.

The picture above is the real Flo, who looks nothing like the Flo on TV. She's an actress who's real name is Stephanie Courtney. You can read more about her on http://www.imdb.com/.
I guess Flo caught on because there seem to be several new Progressive commercials featuring Flo. My favorite is when she is checking out a couple who is buying boat, motorcycle and RV insurance and the woman comments that they don't have those things, and her husband says, well, yes, they do now. Flo says, "Surprise!" and the woman gives her a look that could kill. Flo says, "Let's bag these up."
I like you, girl. You're funny and self-deprecating and even though I don't have Progressive, we should hang.

At third base, he caught a pop up to end the first inning and then fielded a hit for the force out at third.
The Blue Jays won, 9-7. Whoopee!

8. Practicing her "looks" so Tyra doesn't tell her she looks "dead in the eyes" when trying out for America's Next Top Model.
9. Plotting my death, a la Stewie, so she can take my place as Adam's wife.
10. Budgeting so she can figure out if she has enough dough to run for president as the "crunk candidate."
