well, however you look at it, eight days is a looooong time for my Mom to be gone. she came back today and she's really tired. flew all night long on a plane and didn't sleep. all i know is she's back and that's a very good thing. at least when she left she left my "hot head" light on next to the bed so i was all toasty and warm. hope all you guys are well - haven't had a chance to catch up 'cause my Mom wants to go to bed early and i have to go too ~~smile~~
i haven't seen any presents yet so i'm not sure if she even brought anything home for me, but i'm just so glad she's back, that's okay too. and, next week is Thanksgiving, so that means turkey plus a four day weekend! yea!!!
