I'm mad at Gabi.

I want to sell all my unnecessary belongings, reevaluate my efforts to conserve and die of shame for being a materialistic pig.

I read Into the Forest on her recommendation and I can hardly look around my house today without feeling some massive guilt.

Thanks, Gabi!

Here's Johnny, "helping" me clean the basement and wasting the precious resources of our planet. Geez Johnny, haven't you ever read Into the Forest?

More to come this week. I have to tell you about The! Wedding! and The! Pregnancy! Scare!

But not today. Today I feel quiet. And guilty.

Thanks, Gabi!

LOL! I didn't feel guilty at all when I read the book, just sort of hopeless, iykwim...

For more depressing reads, check out "Family Matters" by Rohinton Mistry.

PS...Johnny can waste all the resources he wants!

I do believe we all need to think about conservation because of all the tres petites out there. But you are good at conserving, Kel. Anyway today is the five year anniversary of the day that changed all of our lives forever. Love, YaYa

Kel, thanks for taking that particular photo of Johnny showing his right side, not showing the Gorbachev-like red mark on his forehead. I feel less guilty. Not, however, about the planet, but crap! Now that you're a mom, can't you just see how much OTHER stuff there is to feel guilty about too? You could choose something new to feel guilty about EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR and never repeat yourself.

Nan you have to do what I do. That is get Johnny to fall on parts of his body that are covered. If the little guy had any hair nobody would have ever known.
