  4. Where's the running? Shouldn't you have to "earn" the wine?

    Finally, why in the heck isn't your blog in my reader? I am swine. This too shall be corrected.

  5. That's so great that I will virtually invite myself. It's such a blessing to have amazing friends who will help you get through this bump in the road. Hang in there and enjoy your wine, snacks, and new books.
