The spud came home from school Friday, very concerned. It seems that one of her schoolmates had told her that everyone HAD to display a flag for the next 30 days. I explained to her that we didn’t have a flag, so we couldn’t very well display one. She wanted to know if we were going to “get in trouble”, by which I’m pretty sure she thought perhaps we’d be arrested. Could you imagine? I’ve been ordering stuff for the 3Day like mad – a duffle bag, sleeping bag, stuff like that – and I’m amazed at how fast it’s getting here. I assumed there’d be a slow-down in the mail/ UPS/ Fedex service, but it ain’t so. Man, I feel like I’ve been waiting for the 3Day to get here for, well, 10 months or so… Forever, it feels like. Okay, that’s it for now. I have to conserve my strength, you know. If I owe you email, be patient – I’ve been incredibly lax in responding lately, and I’ll get to the majority of them in the next few days. Really! Hey, while I’m thinking of it, my journal is going to be 2 years old on October 10th! If it were a baby it’d be walking and babbling and potty-trained by now. Oh wait, potty-training comes later, doesn’t it? I can’t remember, it’s been so long…]]>
