biggest temptation: move to Scotland to be a sheep-shearer - apparently they're running low - Chester's a herding dog from Wales, I have some Scottish blood, and I'd love to live there; it's perfect - unfortunately, they want experienced workers - I don't think watching a sheep get sheared once when I was a Girl Scout would count, and Grandpa's too bald for me to practice on him
biggest joy: watching 3-year-old Ben jump into the pool and swim to the stairs all by himself - WOW!!! also: Ben's huge smile and delight with his new skill
biggest personal achievement: showed the most leg hair I ever have in public - I'll let you fill in the details - my mom would be so proud - ooh, I wonder if this would count as shearing practice...
Remember: the preferred term is "quirky."
