It curves back up at about the beginning of next month, so I'm going to trust that chart and hope things regain equalibrium as part of the normal adjustment cycle. I was bouncing it all off my son when I drove him back to college and he thought it was all pretty funny (the chinese food and toothbrush especially). He's going to keep an eye on the facebook and myspace and let me know if anything alarms him. He'll be home a lot over Christmas, so hopefully that will give Dan some guy time. They guffawed over Taledega Nights together Saturday night. On Thanksgiving Dan pointed to the stuffing and said, "What is this?" How would YOU describe it?

    I hope things get better. It's nice that your son's going to keep his eye out too. I'm sure the holidays will change the mood too. Who can't help but get festive?!

    As for dressing, that's a good stumper!

    at the stuffing.

    It is a stumper, but I've been in other countries where they could not tell me what I was eating either.

    Personally, I'd be glad it was stuffing and not haggis. That's a doozy trying to explain.

    I guess you could say that stuffing is a dish that is cooked with bread and broth and veggies, then shoved up the turkey's backside. Hmm, maybe haggis IS easier to explain.

    Mostly bread with broth, spices, butter, and veggies added.

    I caught him using my electric toothbrush. I'm sure things will get better once we've stunned him with the American Christmas scene.

    Wonder how many times he had used it before you caught him??

    oh my goodness! Wow - did it not occur to him that you might have minded him using that?!
