So I'll just jump right back in. Still married. Still have 4 kids. Still deliriously happy.... yada yada.
Funny Story: Andy and I are with Nisha, the oldest child (now 19), at some Chinese buffet grabbing a bite for lunch. Well, under the fancy glass table top is a paper Chinese astrology thing explaining all the animals and the year of birth connecting one to an animal. I apparently am a Tiger. Who knew.
So the blurb on it says something about what a dynamic personality I have and how much fun it is just to know me. Last line says who the best love match is for a Tiger and sums it up with "Stay Away from the Monkey".
Naturally Nisha says, "Mama, what is my daddy?"
Pause: For those who may have forgotten the existence of my family in the last three years due to my criminal neglect of blogging, Nisha is a grand creation from a previous marriage.
I say, "A Monkey."
Moral: Not only should you research the genetic predisposition of your mate prior to marriage and the creation of new life, it would be prudent to also take a peek into your future at your nearest Chinese restaurant.
