Wow. That makes my five weeks with Psycho Boy at the Meth camp seem almost idyllic.

Oh my god, can you say "prenup"? This story has "MOVIE SCRIPT" written all over it. It's priceless and damn funny. The problem, I'm sure, is to make it into something - book, magazine article, movie, etc. - without pissing off your cousin and forever being cut off of free used furniture and kid stuff. Maybe you can ghost write his memoirs or appeal to his ego some way?

Loved it!

Faith: Hmmm ... I really don't know what to say to that. Is Meth camp where they give you drugs or help you get over them? Pardon my ignorance.

Anne-Marie: I think it could be a great movie, but it would have to end happily and not take 10 years! I might do it as a short story somehow. The cousin would never see it (I hope). Thanks.

    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
