I just got six months worth of mail all in one day, and you know what? That is WAY too much mail for anyone to process at any one moment. Jees Louise! And so much of it requires me to DO something. The kids love getting mail though because it means that they get all of their magazines! There's another great thing about bing a kid, good mail.
I am going to have to get more sent over to Spain....then we'll get more yucky mail there too.
I had dinner with an old friend who I've know since I was 12, and her husband and kids, and his sister and husband and kids, and her sister...did you follow all that? A group of people I grew up with, well some of them, and who all had pretty similar upbringings to me, and as I look at the people and the jobs they have and the houses and the lifestyles we all have, it is fascinating to ponder why we married who we did, and the choices we have made about career and lifestyle, and WHY we chose the way we did. Very different right down the pipe...
Then again, I am not sure you can ever really understand the inside of someone else's marriage, it is tough enough to understand your own.
