What Others Said
My buddy, Judy, shared this article and oh wow. What a wake-up, especially for young parents or grandparents, even. Made me more grateful than I already am that the Internet wasn't around while Naomi was tiny. I'd have had no problems with cell phones (still can't stand them and often can't remember how to use ours), but yes, with the Internet world and blogging--the balancing act there would have been rough.
And oh my goodness.... This was downright scary for anyone who isn't, well, paying attention to tiny details or who has problems with numbers or who is aging day by day (ha). A Typo Cost This Woman A Fortune -- I'll bet she's doing things quite differently now. (Another wake-up call for each of us. I will be quadruple checking all my numbers everywhere!)
In other news.... Ol' Tom is considering a job in Virginia. Just thought I'd let you know, but as always, do not hold your breath. (The town is far inland, not on the coast, don't worry... )
Oh, and here's a house there I liked, though yes, the roof might need work and we'd have to hire someone to mow (though knowing Tom, he'd probably like to have a tractor again), but hey! It comes with a piano and how could you say no to that? heh...

And lastly, guess who's thinking she finally came down with her yearly bout with cabin fever? Ugh... but yay! The sun is attempting to shine and today is to be our last of arctic cold where we barely reach 20 degrees. Hopefully, our last for the winter (I can dream!).
