that was fun to read. i've been to the sistine chapel and the vatican (yeah, i'm bragging. Frankie took me to Rome on our honeymoon and since the vatican is an independent country, i actually went to 2 countries on my honeymoon!). they are much less impressive than you think. it was my least favorite part about our sight-seeing. also, finding out that the euro is worth more than the dollar (at that time it was surprising, now, not so much) was pretty disappointing! Haley, you've killed a chicken?!?!?! man, you think you know someone...

You have pieced a quilt before, haven't you? It was before your mission. I remember teasing you about being Suzie Homemaker.
