I don't mean to start a panic

but if ever there was a time to start stock piling food it is now! But I am not talking about the economy or prophesying the end of times (although I think both might be related to this!!

If you love these

Mothers Cookies has closed its doors. Gone out of business. Without any warning to those of use that love those little circus cookies or my favorite, the Parade mixed bags of cookie goodness!

I am seriously going to the store today to pick up a bag of these:

And tonight for dessert we are going to have a farewell party! My kids don't even know how much they are supposed to love them yet!! I am mourning not only for myself, but for future generations!

Forget the bail out of major banks and financial institutions. What about the bail out of an American institution! Why on earth is the government not saving Mothers!!!!

(okay, I might be over reacting. But I might not be!)

You are hilarious...I don't know whether or not to keep this news from my husband. He will be devastated. Afterall, he's watching CNN for the 1st time in his life, all of a sudden interested in politics, which I guess is a good thing to an extent...but its stressing him out. Now this? What ever will he do???!
