1. The Cubbies clinched the NL Central Division. No, I am not getting excited yet, but I'm a BELIEVER. Thank GOD my cable package includes WGN, so I could watch the excitement at home! My dream is to see my dad's face after the Cubbies win the World Series.
2. We had a great vacation at the beach with my family. The babies loved being with their Grammie and Grampy and Uncle Stunna. So did we alleged grown ups. We got to go on our first date in I-don't-know-how-long -- thanks for the babysitting! I got to go to yoga four times -- ahhhhhhhh. I was inspired to met Carmel and Dina and Margie at Yoga Anjali who helped jumpstart my practice out of pre/postnatal boredom. If you ever have a chance to visit them, do!
3. The financial crisis: oh, you mean if you're greedy and get so crazed with it that you lose your sense of balance, it'll probably come back to bite you? Ummm. Yeah.
