my friend did this in some phone app. cool huh? oh, summer school starts today. shoot me now. i enjoyed a little time off. i got to watch season three of dexter, read a few books, enjoy the girls (and boy) and watch a few seasons of 'thirtysomething.' anyone old enough to remember that show? although i was in my twenties when it aired i always loved that show. and now 20+ years looking back at it is really fun. someone on the show got their first monstrous computer. no cell phones, no ipads, no laptops, etc. but relationships, feelings--those things never change. its fun to see how the single people and the married people are on the show. i can identify with each one of them--the mom, the single mom, the married mom, and now the single girl. all very real, with real-life problems.

ok--so the other day i took my two teenage daughters to the mall. along the drive there the song S&M came on by rhianna. i admit i like this song. so one of the girls asked what it all meant. i'm trying to explain it. then that led to a discussion of STD's. which led to a discussion of sex in general. i've always been open and honest with my children about sex. so the topic of masterbation came up. i'm trying to explain all this openly and honestly but some things started coming up out of that so that by the end of the discussion i was laughing so hard i was crying. then one of the girls said later--what was that thing? masterbution? wait, you can't have sex by yourself. CAN YOU? the killer to the ending of that was my daughter saying "you need a boy don't you?" i laughed the rest of the day about it. so if you are in dire need of a good gut busting laugh just talk to your teenagers about sex. i guarantee hilarity...L

I love your picture, I thought it was Anna until I enlarged it on your facebook page. I read your blog :) I don't feel like blogging so I haven't been checking in lately. See you at Crackers!
