It's Pirate Boy's birthday, and the little rogue is now seven! Boy, that's going to take some getting used to. I have a ton to do today, as those of you with kids can imagine.

Plus! I have to do my entire month's edits before morning--huzzah! The project boss emailed me this morning to see what was up; she had this kind of worried tone. Well, yeah, I know I've got a lot of articles to edit before 7 a.m. tomorrow (like, 40). Now that I've written my 40 articles I can devote all my time to the editing. Be done by one. Ciao!

Well, it was something like that. By lunchtime, I had 16 done, and I've done another 6 since. (I took a break to bake a cake and run the kids around the...neighborhood. No lakes.) I will be done tonight. And I have some words for some of those writers...

Anyway, just thought I'd let you know I'm still alive. Love you all!

Happy to hear about your job. Perhaps the extra stress will be worth it...perhaps not. You'll have to post or e-mail about how the b-day turned out. I'll e-mail you some pix of the cute kiddos! And give Pirate Boy some extra squeezins from us, too.

Will do. I'm surprised you guys couldn't hear the shouts and whoops where you are. The boy had an awesome time on his birthday. Thanks, you gals, for being awesome aunts.
