Of COURSE They Missed This One!

Ooh, ooh (in a wheezy Arnold Horshack/Gunther Toodie impression)... I'm glad you brought that up! I've been meaning to read this, but it'd slipped my mind! (I'm adding it to my "recommended and/or referenced by P" list).

No, no, I meant that as, after that last post of yours, whatever my kids put me through, I have it easy compared to you! I mean, 17 bags!? I totally respect and admire you for what you're doing and for what you put up with... and that you still manage to care about them! You're one of my role models, Ms. A!
