Trippin' with Dustin

Well, Dustin and I made it to Maryland safe and sound. It was a 2 hour direct flight and everything went perfectly smooth this morning. We arrived and his grandparents took him to the store and got him a PSP for his birthday, which is today. And he wants to go to Golden Corral for his birthday dinner with everyone here. Which...on his birthday I'm happy to oblige...since it's his day, not mine! I will try and only eat one piece of fried chicken. :-) Still hard to believe he's 17 today.

When we were at the store, I got the book Night by Elie Fiesel. I have been wanting to read it for some time, just haven't. I am finishing it tonight and hoping Dustin will read it on the plane home. It's fascinating and I'm only on the second chapter. It's still very difficult for me to fathom that any of this happened in the 1940's. That wasn't so long ago, for such an atrosity to happen. And, for people to get away with...while the world was silent. Makes me more determined than ever...on important things, we cannot be silent. Someone once said, "well behaved women rarely make history." I don't think I'll ever have to worry about that. I have already done enough misbehaving for a lifetime. (But seen a lot of great things happen too.) It has always been the cry of my heart to be a history maker. I believe it is in the heart of everyone to be such but many just never have the courage to be different.

Dustin and I need to practice our song but now he's enjoying the PSP. I have already had some UTZ potato chips. I am going to have to REALLY work out after spending this time trippin' with Dusti! Larry and Jordan are enjoying some time together especially since Savanna's in Georgia, and...Jordan is off grounding! Yippee! That was the longest 30 days of MY life, let alone his. You know, when the kids are grounded, parents are grounded too. I personally hate it. Why oh why? That's my question. All the kids report cards were good, so praise the Lord, it's going to be a good quarter with no groundings. (Hopefully for the rest of the year.) Oh well, off to rehearse and go to Golden Corral and try to keep myself under control.
