I was reading that our forces found some suspicious chemicals and some notes on chemical attack. It made me wonder, what happens if something like a chemical attack does happen. Do you think it justifies us to the rest of the world? I was wondering to myself what it will take to make the rest of the world see Saddam for what he really is.

I do not pose this question as a debate. I truly don't understand how we could possibly justify our suspicions to the rest of the world and they would still probably see us as the bad guy and not Saddam, the one with the weapons and chemicals he wasn't supposed to have.

You see, when one is painting and sitting at a sewing machine, one has too much time to form these thoughts in one's head I suppose LOL. The redecorating is going awesome though, and I am really feeling accomplished, and genuinely proud of myself for all the hard work and love I am putting into these rooms. Doing most of it myself has made it seem more homey to me, and I am really looking forward to being done and being able to look around and say, hey I did this. It is sort of good that Sean is gone, I never would have done this otherwise.

I have decided to go home for Sam's April Vacation, so look out Boston, here I come. My stepdad is pretty sick and we want to see each other before he passes. I hate driving though, and long trips make me very very stressed, so send happy trip vibes to me please. I will be leaving NC next Saturday and stopping overnight, so it shouldn't be too bad. The hardest part will be the dogs I think. Usually I sit with them and we keep each other calm, but now they will be back there all alone. *GASP* They will be so nervous. Poor babies. Anyway, that is it from Me-land. I have been reading, but haven't posted much because I am really super busy during the day and exhausted at night, and my fellow board members and co-cl's have given such great advice you all don't need my chiming in also :)

Check back later, have a good day

While it's nice that you're heading up to your old stomping grounds, I'm sorry that it's under such sad circumstances. Prayers for your Step-Dad.

((hugs))
