Yipes, sorry to all the moms worried about their kids for various reasons. I don't suppose it ever gets easier. This is a weird thing to say, but I've fleetingly caught myself wishing that Bodhi would grow to be a sullen, ungrateful, unlikeable young man, so I could allow myself to stop feeling so much concern for him. It's just so stressful to love anything this much. That makes no sense, I know, because I'll have failed as a parent if he becomes like that. Just one of the bizarre things that pops into my head.
I'm having a really, really nice time in TX with Abbeysmom right now. Bodhi gets on swimmingly with Abbey. Plus, we made falafel, hummus, tzatziki and tabouleh last night. Oh my flippin' yum!
Silverstar - I'm so sorry to hear about your cousin. I hope he turns up!
