    Re: Keeping the Glass Half Full, Tuesday, 20 facts

    I've enjoyed reading back in your blog this morning.  We appear to be leading parallel lives.  Let's review:

    * we both grew up in the UK
    * we both went to a private all-girls' school
    * we moved to the USA in the same year and live about 10 miles apart
    * we both do Zumba
    * kids are the same gender/order & very similar ages
    * my son is also on a IEP

    Discovering all this was a bit freaky but fun! :)
    Rebecca

    haha. How is your dog a thief? And, gasp, how can you hate eggplant? (one of my favorites! :) ) We love Homeland over here too. Who set you up on the blind date? And where did you go?

    Re: Keeping the Glass Half Full, Tuesday, 20 facts

    Ever since the kids were born, our golden retriever started stealing things, taking them outside and burying them. Shoes and socks mostly, but also toys, sippy cups, cordless phones, TV remotes. Basically anything that's within reach.

    Eggplant - bleuch. Sorry.

    My blind date was actually set up by my brother who lives in the US too. He worked with someone who's cousin lived in Boston and connected the two of us. The rest, as they say, is history. We went to Les Zygomates in Boston. Dec 17, 2000.
