diet journal): 16 miles. Yeah, baby! (Don’t I look all smug?) So, I went to the TV Guide site to make sure I was getting the name of Night Visions correct (my memory is like a sieve), and saw that they were advertising the new Ellen Degeneres show. Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t there an Ellen Degeneres show just a few years back and they canceled it? If she couldn’t draw the viewers back then, what makes them think she can do it now? Anyone? The spud had another weepy evening last night because she was missing my mother; she threw down her fork and went running to sit on the bottom step to sob her little heart out. When asked what was wrong, she said "I miss grammy!" It was what I’d expected, but I was afraid there might be something going on at school we didn’t know about. After finishing eating and doing her chores, she called my mother and sobbed "I miss you!" at her. Later, Fred took her on a bike ride, which seemed to cheer her up a little, and she hasn’t been weepy today at all. Thankyagod. Fred doesn’t think he’s going to make it through her teenage years. Okay, that’s it for today. I’m tuckered out from all that walking, I have a sunburn, and I need to finish making dinner. ]]>
