I know that most people just find the whole thing harmless but I think it speaks volumes. We need a generation of daughters who can be strong not weak. We need our daughters to understand that life isn't about someone else taking care of them but about them giving and contributing. And lastly marriage is not synonymous with "happily ever after". Marriage with 2 responsible, hard-working, equally yoked, unselfish people is.
So that is why I really enjoyed THIS article from the LA Times yesterday. Enjoy, and for future reference please don't ever give Julia anything "princessy".

Although, I must say that if I am going to be sick the place to be sick is at Mom's house. Something about having Mom take care of me made me feel better even with my raging fever. We ended up spending the night because I literally could not get out of bed.
Anyway, we are home now and I am starting to feel slightly better, although I am still pretty useless here in bed. That's the thing with the flu, it always seems to last several days and I just don't have that kind of patience. I just feel horrible that I can't hold Julia and play with Blake. Thank you to Rebecca for taking Julia for the day. IT means more than you know. And thank you to my wonderful husband for taking such good care of me and the kids.
And sorry no pictures from Easter. That's what happens when the mommy is sick.

You know it's Spring when:
- Your husband decides that the hammock would be a good place to watch March Madness on his laptop.
- Your wildflowers are blooming like crazy in your front yard.
- Your husband brings you home a beautiful Easter Lily that makes the whole kitchen smell wonderful.
- Trader Joe's sells bunches of daffodils for a little over a buck each.
- Asparagus and artichokes are cheap cheap cheap.
- It doesn't get dark at 5pm anymore.
- Peep season is here and soon you will fascinate your nieces and nephews with the annual peep blowing up event in your local microwave.
Hooray for Spring.

I am also glad that even though I live in the "burbs" now I still live close enough to visit old friends and places in LA. So if you are ever considering a move to the Los Angeles area do it, because I think it is the most wonderful place in the world. And Mike knows that one day (like in 75 years when we have saved enough money) we will move to Hancock Park so we can be right in the thick of it again.:)

this dirty governor was outed for his little visits with workers from the "Emperors' Club".
Both men are known to be brilliant...but how brilliant is it to cheat on your wife WHILE YOU ARE GOVERNOR and THINK THAT YOU WON'T GET CAUGHT. Can't wait to read the book about Eliot written by his wife (or shall we say soon to be ex-wife) Silda in a few years. I really wish I could get inside of good old Eliot's head. At what point did he go from prosecuting this type of thing to patronizing it? Why? When? How?
What is that quote about how power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Any more dirty governors want to out themselves????
Dirty Dirty Dirty..........that's all I have to say
