    Two Happy Things
    Kids.

    My eldest child e-mailed me today and asked me if she could have instant messaging. I told her I would rather she wait until she gets back home. I'm not ready for her to be off into the world of 567 buddies and 15 flashing bars on her screen -- especially not from where I cannot monitor, and I'm not sure that those who are in such a position have the time or inclination to do so. As an after thought, I asked her who she wants to talk with, anyway. Her response was one word in length: "you." (not capitalized!!) It kind of warmed my heart.


    Work.

    I am getting involved on a corporate deal - starting today. I have been actively using my Blackberry this evening to arrange an a.m. meeting with some associates involved with the deal, and have some agreements to draft. I'm feeling useful!!! I doubt I'll end up on the corporate side of things, but getting to be engaged with something is really tasty.

      You mean THREE happy things! Yay!

      I'm really glad to hear that you are finally getting some real work. They would be stupid not to use you while they have you.

      I got all gooky when I read about your daughter's email. Aw. You're such a lucky woman. Although I'm not at all surprised that your kiddos would be so dear-hearted.

      Lyco - I told no less than three people today about my exchange with Thing One, and every time - I got teary eyed, and had to look at hte floor. Every time.

      we did talk, too. She was so cute. I tried to say goodbye, and she didn't want to stop chatting. I told her that she MUST have more to do than talking to her BORING mother, and she said:

      "mom: 0% boring; 100% FUN!!"

      again, the smiles and teary eyes.
