Nail Biting

On this, the seventh day of summer vacation, my two big girls have been invited to Marine World by another family. They were up early this morning working on a bevy of gifts for their friend and her mother, including multiple thank you cards, a letter from Lea wishing everyone a good time, and a square of burlap that V embroidered with their friend's name. This is a most generous invitation, and R & V are over the proverbial moon.

I, on the other hand, am having a silent nervous breakdown. Instead of focusing on what a good time they will undoubtedly have, I can think of nothing but what a horrible world we live in and how evil lurks around every corner and nobody is safe anywhere and terrible things happen on a daily basis to people who haven't done a thing to deserve it and... God, it's gonna be a long day here at Nesting Ground Headquarters.

It pains me to report that the girls were taken hostage by Shouka the killer whale and then released when they repeatedly sang their painfully off-key version of Alicia Keyes' "No One."

But really...they made it home, but not until 10:00. Very grumpy yesterday...
