It’s really only been one week since I last typed one of these?

You’ve got to be kidding.





These guys are still funny.





Have I mentioned these before?

It’s totally possible.

I love these ear cuffs from Noonday.



My ear is pierced twice in only one ear.  (Once upon a time in high school or college Emma and I both wanted to get only one ear pierced, so we split the cost and each had one ear lobe pierced.  That’s the entire story.)

Anyway, I should ask Emma if she wants to split the cost of this earring, since I sort of only want one so I can wear it in the second piercing.




What if I were to go completely insane and try to consume less sugar?

What desserts would I then enjoy?

I’d love your recipe suggestions.




This quote.

When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness.  They wanted her to change back into what she had always been.

But she had wings.

A week or more ago Piper told me that our dryer handle had broken off in her hand.



Which was unfortunate because how is one supposed to open a dryer without a handle?

As life would have it, I forgot about the dryer handle and what Piper had told me.

I never mentioned the dryer handle situation to anyone.  Because I had forgotten – remember?

Days passed.  No laundry was being done.  (That happens sometimes.)

And Bergen causally said to me one afternoon, “I fixed the dryer handle Mom.”

Then I remembered that it was broken.

I headed to the laundry room to inspect his repairs.

A zip tie cleverly attached.

I still can’t decide which makes me happier – the dryer being repaired, his ingenuity or the fact that I never even asked him and he took his own initiative to accomplish a task that genuinely helped our family.
