To all Americans, Happy Independence Day! I should say something like "fellow Americans" - since technically, I'm a citizen and all, but it still feels awkward...I guess it's kind of like getting married - your in-laws are your family now but it's not the same thing as the family you grew up in.
Anyway, happy 4th of July to you, and I hope you are having a great day spending it the way you like! I, personally, am hoping for an hour when both of my kids are asleep and I can paint :).
