**Strange sense of pride was experienced by, well, me here....but I also felt a little twinge...I realized that to solve little issues like that one will take a lot more work and confusion over the phone when I'm away. For a whole year I won't come down the stairs and see or hear my mom playing free cell in the mornings. For a whole year I won't be able to quietly come down and get my cup of coffee, already made, then retreat to my room till I wake up!! I will have to make it myself! Even though I never really appriciated it, I'm really gonna miss the routine in my house.**
