See - here you thought you wouldn't hear from me, and I'm up on the InterWeb being a bloggin' fool.
Perhaps it's cause I know me days are numbered.
Don't you love it when you wake up excited about life?
I woke up wishing I were Italian today - I know that sounds crazy.

Plus, being home for me is so important right now - I want to be available for Aaron - should he need anything at all - I want to available to my friends, if they need anything.
I want to be:
And today -
