It’s painful to sit on the sidelines and watch a situation unfold in the worst possible way.
I want to make it all better.
Well, I really want to fuss and shout and stomp all about but it’s because I care. It really is.

I like this but I’m slightly disappointed that they didn’t have the model taking his socks on and off.
It was likely the first time Rebecca had truly laughed since she and her 19-month-old son, Anders, survived the massive tornado that destroyed much of Moore, Okla. But she couldn’t help but giggle after CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked her if she “thanked the lord” for the life-saving decision…
Wolf Blitzer really pushed on her this. It seems as though she was trying to deflect the question but he had to ask her again.
Also, don’t read the comments. Unless you want to get stompy. LIKE ME.
Important / In case you were wondering:
Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement. In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life, a person happy doing his own work is usually considered an eccentric, if not a subversive. Ambition is only understood if it’s to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success. Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords him the time to pursue other interests and activities is considered a flake. A person who abandons a career in order to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living up to his potential-as if a job title and salary are the sole measure of human worth. You’ll be told in a hundred ways, some subtle and some not, to keep climbing, and never be satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you’re doing. There are a million ways to sell yourself out, and I guarantee you’ll hear about them.
For those of you who have texted, called, and emailed. Thank you. The tornado hit several miles south, so my family and I are safe. I was at school when it hit, and we had to hold our kids back for over an hour. There is nothing scarier than managing 24 students during a terrible storm, and have…
