How appropriate. I heard "Yesterday" by the Beatles and went to go play it on the piano coz it's easy and fun to play!....Oops, the piano is at Bill's house. Sigh. (I knew I would miss the piano.) Come on, laugh with me.
So the strangest thing just happened. At the bus stop this am we saw the three young deer we always see and commented on them. As we were watching them, a car hit one on the road. Didn't even stop. The poor little thing bolted over to us and we stood there watching the life kick out of her while blood poured from her head. Ugh. I can still hear her hooves clattering on the street. Disturbing. Willie is my calm boy. I was fussing and saying, "what can we do? etc." he said simply, "Mom, get back in the car. I'll take care of it." and he dragged her off the road. He pulled his phone out. Just then the bus drove up. I'm sitting here thinking I didn't remind him to wash his hands when he gets to school, though I'm sure he'll be fine. Not sure which was more impressive: the deer's violent death or Willie's composure. I'm blessed with a good son.

When it comes to what customers want, it's "usually pretty simple" (paraphrasing @bryankramer on Social Media Marketing Podcast)
LMFAO. Overheard from the XBox live battle going on upstairs: Henry (my 9-yr-old) telling his team, "Guys, Don't doubt yourself. Trust your skills." Then he breaks out into Donna Summers' "I will survive" and sings to his team. love that kid! He's an original, for sure!
THIS GIRL REALLY IS ON FIRE. Need some help here, please: I know I have a lot of heart-centered business friends here who could give me some insight...I recently handed over to God a huge professional heartache/letdown and now I'm just left feeling angry about it. I know I need to hand over this anger, too and get productive today. Not very businesslike to grieve over a client, but I poured my heart, time, money into a project that just got killed. Any thoughts on this, friends?
Two-hour late start = Doritos and video games before school. (Slacker mom here...who else can relate?)
Henry just informed me he thinks he knows why we had kids...so we could slack off and make the kids do everything. I just laughed and laughed.
Ever read something you wish you hadn't? I came across an opinion expressed in a book of letters by a favorite writer -- and his views repulsed me. I'm always slightly surprised when I discover, just because I like the writing doesn't mean I would personally enjoy the writer's company!
