Right now, I'm reading:
For Me: The Unexpected Circumnavigation: Unusual Boar, Unusual People, Part !, San Diego to Australia (I cant believe there will be a part II, boy is this book slow! I am reading it for my book club FromLefttoWrite.com. With My Son: Marvel Superstars Magazine: Captain America. This book is infinitely more superior to the one I am reading.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
People are fond of saying that abhorrent expression, Dont sweat the small stuff! But for me everything is hard. The big stuff is catastrophic so I have become so crazy that I freak out over the little things too. It seems like everything bad is always happening to ME. Makes for a good blog at least.
