Several things today:
1) my husband is home again after being gone for a few days for work
2) I got to talk to my friend Marie today for the first time in a while
3) Tonight we were THAT house. You know, that house all the kids in the neighborhood are playing at. Sari's friends' older brother is on leave from the military for the holidays and he arrived home today. They showed up in our yard as we arrived home at dusk with really, really nice light sabers for everyone to use for a giant light saber battle. There were kids from 6 to 20 years old and everything in between, all battling each other in an epic battle. It was great. I'll post a picture later.
