  1. That peppermint mocha is exactly why Starbucks has stopped locking their bathrooms. I hope you get a full night’s sleep tonight.

  2. Except for the 7-year-old, my kids don’t have specific requests from Santa. Lisa is very specific. Bart, if pressed, will say he wants a marker or a Wonka Bar.

  3. This was good. I’m hoping you meet your 8:00 bedtime tonight.

  4. Wow, you are bu-sy, huh? I understand what it is like to feel so overwhelmed. And kids and their neeeeeeeds. I am overwhelmed just thinking about it.Really clever entry, SaLy GiRl. Me Likes!

  5. Good LAWD, woman. I am tired for you! Sounds like momma could love her some wine (but being PG, I suppose you could just go for WHINE)…

  6. how are you still awake and functional AT ALL?!?!? I’m just sitting at my desk feeling sorry for myself
