Ridiculously Happy Given That None Of The Good News Is Mine

A friend who has been trying to conceive her second child unsuccessfully for at least five years announced her pregnancy today!  She is 17 weeks along and looks great.

Also, the sweet, beautiful teenager from my taekwondo class, the one who was being bullied and cutting herself, is doing really well in her new school and had no bandages on her arms at class tonight.  And she now has a boyfriend, one who makes her giggly-happy like teenage girls should be.  A friend of hers from class called me over afterward to see a picture of the two of them: I wanted to do a happy dance right there in the hallway, but refrained.  My reaction to her is entirely maternal...she could be my daughter, and seeing things finally going well for her really made my evening.

Good news, indeed.

Preview, Part 2

(Or maybe this should have been part 1 since it will happen first.) We dropped Thing One off at his first sleepaway soccer camp on Saturda...
