4. 1 pack of Reece's Pieces
5. oh...and my period too...sad...very sad...very very sad...

1. 2 napping kids and 1 1/2 hours to myself (much needed)
2. a phone call from a friend who knows me and knows what I need...thanks friend

I am so sorry that you aren't pregnant. If you need a shoulder to cry on, you have an understanding one right here. I love you and have you in my prayers.
