JayZ & Beyonce

"Simply paying attention allows us to build an emotional connection. Lacking attention, empathy hasn't a chance. -- Daniel Goleman

So, JayZ & Beyonce got married. Big Deal? Do you think it will last??? Who cares besides me? Seriously! I think they are a very cute couple!

I watch E News each night when I can and I'm getting so fed up w/ all the hype and press coverage some of these unwed mother's are getting. Halle Berry was hugely pregnant on the cover of InStyle magazine, E News covered Jessica Alba's baby shower this past weekend and Nicole Ritchie & her baby were on the cover of People (don't even get me started on Brad & Angie!). I realize teen pregnancy happens but I think this just glamorizes it. Jamie Lynn Spears' life as an unwed teen mom will be very different from the average unwed teen mom. Being the mom of 2 girls, I certainly don't want T or KJ to think that "if Jamie Lynn can do it...."

So today I had my first official "business" lunch. We met w/ a vendor and discussed mouth guards, socks and cups (i.e., athletic supporters). Whoop de doo!!!! Glamorous, huh???

We also went to DMV to have our vehicle registrations renewed. We had mailed it in but apparently the envelope didn't make it on time and everything was sent back. Stood on-line for almost 50 minutes. Not fun.

T has a lax game tonight. Chris took her since KJ apparently can't handle being out too late at night. She was nasty, nasty, nasty this morning. Chris said she actually fell asleep in the car this morning on the way to school. He dropped T off first and actually had to wake KJ up on the carpool line.

I have a chip in my windshield that needs to be repaired. Again, what fun. But hey! I'm getting a haircut and highlights tomorrow!

We can all be angels to one another. We can choose to obey the still small stirring within, the little whisper that says, Go. Ask. Reach out. Be an answer to someone's plea. You have a part to play. Have faith. -- Joan Wester Anderson


(e-mail me w/ your new address! I need to send you an invite to KJ's communion!)
