I opened my eyes to see her looking at me so intently. She was taking in every angle of my face as if trying to memorize every line. It took my breath away to realize how closely she watches me, how often she copies what I say or do, and how much we love each other. There is an incredible bond that exists between mothers and daughters.

When you're dating, the quality of the relationship is equal to the amount of time you spend together, and more is better. When you've been married for a few years, the quality of the relationship becomes equal to the amount of time you spend apart, and again, more is better.
I envy people who look sweat-less and composed in warm weather. When I was in high school, our gym class had to run around the track in the spring. My face would turn bright red as soon as we stepped outside. The teacher told me it was because I had a great internal cooling system. I'm still waiting to reap the benefits of my internal greatness.
Things I hate more than cleaning behind the refrigerator:
1. sticking toothpicks in my eyeballs 2. playing "chicken" with fire ants 3. drinking vegetable oil 4. that classic game "how many crickets can you eat?" 5. the congressmen indicting Jack Bauer 6. discussing curfews with a 14 year old
Whenever I go barefoot in the house, my feet seem to be magically attracted to anything on the floor that shouldn't be there, like needles, thorns, teeny pieces of glass, staples...If something little is lost, I know all I need to do is take off my shoes, and I'll find it in no time. Who needs a metal detector when I have foot-radar?
I know that we call it "mating" socks when folding them into pairs. But, I'm just a little uncomfortable with it. I mean, really, do we ever expect to unfold a pair of "mated" socks and find a little baby sock inside?!?
