that I'm leaving tomorrow morning for a three week stay in South Carolina? Did I tell you that I'm taking Sophie this year and calling it the "vacation" -- quotes laden with irony?
I throw out the big questions to the universe, the big appeals. I'm grateful for the small things.
My appeal to the universe is quite trivial today.
Help me to get ready for our "vacation."
Help me not to yell at the children as they watch endless hours of television today.
Help me to survive the plane trip with Sophie tomorrow.
Give Sophie a good day tomorrow.
