conversation in the car.

Carson: mom, do you believe in global warming?
Me: yes
Carson: President Bush doesn't (smart girl)
Me: well, everyone is entitle to their opinions
Carson: mom, what is global warming?
Me: well, basically it is the earth's atmosphere warming up
Taylor: well, technically it is more like the city of Phoenix is polluting more than they should and that pollution causes a hole in the ozone layer and then more of the sun's rays are getting through and causing the temperature of the atmosphere to heat up.
Carson: mom, taylor's explanation was a lot better than yours.
Taylor: yeah, it was--that's why we're in school.

and that's exactly where i want them...L

have you been to see the movie HAPPY FEET yet? if not run, don't walk, to the nearest movie theatre near you. definitely the best movie out there (of course i never go to the movies so take that for what it's worth!) so wonderful on so many levels. i can't stand how good this movie was! Ok--enough said.

so tomorrow i venture out into the world of christmas shopping. i am so glad i am doing this for other people cuz i would have no motivation to shop for me--the thought of the holiday season is making me nauseous. in other good news though there is a chance of snow tomorrow and wednesday. my girls hope it snows enough to close school for a week. guess whom doesn't share that same sentiment. so this is scrooge saying peace out and take a break from the holiday stress and go see a really good movie...L

GRATITUDE unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. GRATITUDE makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie

Happy Thanksgiving everyone...L

C: when i grow up i am going to have 4 kids (big pause) and one husband.
M: are you sure you don't want more than one husband? (snicker)
C: (big pause) no i don't want to get divorced. i'm going to make sure i get a really good one the first time.
