Well, I'm pleased with the results!
(These days I'm just me, and make no apology for that any more.)
I just hope we don't wake up to weeks of recounts tomorrow morning.
My daughter posted a 'how good are you at stalking me' meme. I thought, ha! Bet I get ALL the answers right!
When she rang this evening, me still under the assumption that I know each and every one of my children inside out, which meant of course, that I had to ask how many I'd got right, I was humbled to learn that my children are in fact all three individual adults now (eepers!) who are open to change without informing me first. Blimey. I vaguely remember being twenty years old, my first child driving me nuts, thinking I couldn't wait for this moment. I remember rather more vividly that by thirty three I was desperate for my three to reach adulthood, thinking it would never happen.
I should be out celebrating with their Papa!
But what am I doing? Yup, playing songs that were their favourites when they were barely out of nappies into the wee hours. And wondering why, when and how they grew up.
Umm.. Just had a thought. To the LJ-ers in my family, **NO!!!** looking at my eBay feedback allowed until after Christmas!! (And for kate669 that means after January!!)
I will, however, post my traditional "what I wish I could have afforded" this year: The Dr Who Pinball Machine. But, yeah, it was more than a new car, and the new car won -- we *do* need to eat. Plus the wrapping paper involved could have fed the third world for 2008 in its entirety, I'm sure. And on that subject.. please don't forget that Voice of the Martyrs will provide a blanket and food for a Sudanese child for $30 this Christmas. VOM, by the way, is a kosher charity, I've checked many, many times.
Anyway, back to my knitting. (Well, what else is PapaDan gonna wear on his head when he goes back to work?)
