So last night was pretty typical. The magnificent toddler ran his trains serenely around the Island of Sodor, only beaning the dog once with a flying locomotive, the Divine Miss C wrapped up her standardized testing homework before bedtime leaving her a leisurely six minutes to cuddle with her neopet, and husband spent twenty minutes misleading a telephone survey person about our fast food preferences. He takes particular delight in this sort of thing because we’re mostly vegetarians and would sooner vote Republican than eat a Big Mac (see, Mom? there is hope).

Me? I took it all in while savoring my reunion with the Insomnia Sweater.
