I haven't posted in so long that I am typing this just to have something more recent on here. Maybe I'll think of something awesome or hysterical to say soon.

I could be all depressing and mention that we had to put one of the dogs to sleep last week. Nothing like a dozen paragraphs about children sobbing over a corpse to pull in the readers.

Or I could describe the way the cat will lay across my neck during the night. An optimist would say she really likes being close to me. A pessimist could say she's trying to kill me. As long as I'm still typing, I'll be optimistic.

Stay tuned.

This is a great day. Not because a black man will become President, but because a good man will become President and his race matters not.

Thanks to a surprise snow, I'm able to stay home and watch the inauguration on TV. I am riveted.

My 15 year has his first serious girlfriend and I am finding it necessary to talk to him about sex. Not because he is there yet, (please, please, please), but I don't have 100% control over his decision about when, now do I? No, I don't. And I'm smart enough to realize that.

I did not sign up for this. Where is the exit?
