heading out to dad's. i'm bringing the pink gorilla my sister gave me so he can see his namesake. mom? it worked! i told her: don't know if you see your christmas present under the tree yet, it's my heart. she goes, aww. i'm going to unwrap her crossword dictionary & let everybody sign it. still haven't found a way to thank roman yet. maybe we should tell him how i threw that card up in the air & how awesome it was watching him catch it? you were just beautiful coming in. tell nona hi. hug the gold star moms ... i'm taking the eight ball with me to navigate back & forth. i'll check in when i get back.
