"When we can't control the big things, we try to control the little ones."

This is so true! I have no control over my current "big picture", so I'm totally obsessing over little things being exact. Now I've stated the reason for my neurosis, I feel much better about it.

As usual, in times like these, I will fall back on my mantra, nicely framed here:

Ahhhh...that made me cry. There is something about our friendship. I can't quite figure it out. But, your writing and words always makes me remember...makes me ponder....makes me reflect. It is odd. But, in a good way.

I so am buying you that poster for your new home. When is your birthday exactly? Don't say, "May 6" cause that would be freaky. :)

Hey...your other blog is so high-tech, so amazing, so comment-free? I was going to comment on your dream. That was so great. I love how you didn't care that Fergie didn't know/invite/need you. Now, that is CONFIDENCE. They are beautiful...

What was it that they ran out of?
