Gorgeous pictures, Anthia! Thank you for sharing!! It's great to finally SEE you and your kiddos!!
Joanie, so far so good. We walked to the store to get some ingredients to make an eggplant dish so now I'm trying to do that.
Okay, so you don't need to worry now Joanie!!! But also, sorry to disappoint everyone that I'm not a celeb! LOL! And Joanie, my kids are 1/4 Japanese just like Sora!
I am so sorry for all of the problems everyone seems to be facing right now -- financial, personal, marital, sleep, etc. I wish I had one giant magic wand to fix it!!!!!
NOOOOO ANTHIAAAAAA!!!! I missed it!!! Im sad now..
And Joanie, I live in a town that is 90% DoD employed, and is right in between 3 very large Naval yards. This is definitely not just a problem for us, it is affecting all of our friends and family as well. The estimate is that just in our county there are now 185,000 people who will receive no pay until approximately 3 weeks after a budget is passed- and that has not happened as of yet. I sold a quilt I made and pulled the rest of our savings today. It will cover the mortgage but nothing else. We are in a better position than others we know just with what small savings we had left, so I guess I just get to complain to all of you lucky guys because I feel guilty complaining too much to anybody else, knowing that we are ALL feeling the effects.
Oh geez. That is what I call community-wide trauma.
