Yippee, CJ! A shower doesn't seem like a big deal til you can't have one for a while!

I'm celebrating my daughter's 33rd birthday today. She's the sweetest girl in the world. She came to live with me 30 years ago as a scared little foster child, straight from the hospital with massive burns to her feet and legs. Since then, she's come so far and really is a delight to all of us. She does have significant intellectual impairment and sometimes that makes things tough for her, but she's always smiling.

She is a big Spurs basketball fan so this year, we got her a huge, portable basketball hoop. She's so excited - she's outside with her basketball right now. Of course, she got other things from her brothers and sister and my mom but all she can think right now is basketball! It's too cool!

I'm telling you, you all have got to start entering sweepstakes! James doesn't know it yet, but last night I won him $50 in Taco Bell's Baja Blast Fuel Up for Free sweepstakes, and just now I won the same thing for myself. You're allowed 10 prizes per household, so I will keep trying.

my daughter who is graduating from college this year and wants to go on to law school has earned a fellowship for the next 2 years.....lots of folks applied for this job and I think that she got it 'cause she's got a big mouth.....she and her significant other competed quite well in international debates and she's been working in the California Women's Prisons system for the last 3 years.....she is known for her work in prison reform.....she'll never make $ that is for sure.......she will work pro bono for women in prison...I know her too well...well, after the two years she plans to go to law school
