The kids have used up all of my hazelnut coffee creamer to flavor their milk.  This is a bad thing.  I must have my coffee, and it must be flavored with my hazelnut creamer!  I've been having a real hard time sleeping at night, and sleeping during the day is out of the question.

I spoke to Gabe yesterday.  I couldn't tell him that I was afraid for him, he really would have thought I was nuts, after all he doesn't leave country until September.  All I could say was 'I love you'.  I want to be able to say that for many years to come so I keep the dark voices that whisper 'what if?' at bay by cluttered thoughts of nothing specific, and lots of coffee... strong coffee... no longer tinted with a kiss of hazelnut because my kids have used it all to flavor their milk!  Hello kids, its COFFEE creamer, not MILK creamer!

I tried watching the news.  Misery across the nation and world always seems to make me feel better about my own life.  This morning, when they were not showing live shots of the front entrance to a police station in London where a bombing suspect MIGHT be brought in, they were showing a live shot of a pond being drained in Aruba where a clue MIGHT be found in the Natalee Holloway case.  We finally get the technology to have live news coverage and what do they do with it?  They park their sattelite cameras up infront of where news MIGHT happen in the next two or three hours, or four or five... or not at all.  Yeah, you gotta love the media.

It rained last night.  Actually it poured.  My zeroscaping works from time to time.  The weeds that make up my lawn are smiling.  This usually means that we will have to break out the lawnmower ... for the third time this year.  It may actually get more use than the vacuum cleaner!

Dorn.....I can't even let myself  hear the whispers you are trying to keep at mind hits the mute button everytime......they say we might be able to pull out of Iraq by 2006.......August 2005 works for me! lol I think my Niece's Husband return to Iraq from Fort Campell the same time Gabe does.....It's his 3rd tour of duty.....maybe the angels surround them both!

Many prayers for your Gabe and the many other sons who are out of our sight but taking care of us.

And many thanks to him and those others for keeping me and my girls safe.  You are a good mother.

I feel for you. I have a hard time sleeping with a kid living in Philly, let alone what you're going through.
But at least your drinking coffee and not tequila. That's a very good thing.
I wish they'd solve the Natalee Holloway thing. It really bothers me tremendously for some reason, and has consumed way too much of my time recently as I've tried to play detective by reading every single blog about it on the Internet.
But on the darkly bright side, it's actually a nice change from all the political crap that we get deluged with.

well, it could be worse,they could be stealing form the liquor cabinet!
I hate the night whisperers myself,especially when it concerns a boy for away in a place where we have no business sending our sons

I would reccommend NEVER watching the news to take your mind off problems. There is so much more out there that you can do - perhaps read, draw, maybe even shop? :)
Peace and love,

Sorry about the creamer, Boo...its a bitch sometimes, isn't it?  LOL

Severe t-storms here for the last 12 hrs or so.  Gave some relief from the sorry wet blanket feeling you get when you go outside.  You lay off those "what-ifs", ya hear me?  I suggest a good blended whiskey instead.  ;)
