One of the twins broke his bike frame at a cost of replacement of almost $400 !!
I just started the first wave of clothes for BTS which includes rain gear and wellies for both girls…
I on the other hand received a rave review from the coordinator of our fat book swap! I was wondering if I should have sent it to the U.S. for binding ( I don’t have a machine although I want one, see the aforementioned reasons :). I was quite happy about that and don’t officially have to change anything! This is my first chunky book and I wanted to send something I would be proud to receive! I would have not known what a chunky book was, let alone participated in a swap had I stayed on the wheel in corporate usA. I can not only smell roses but I have planted a few. I have hiked the fjörds, camped without toilets and learned to create art with out the high end papers, pens and accoutrements available.
I guess I did learn something at school today: Gratitude.
Ps.. my bestis friend Jeanette gave me a small stereo for my birthday and it went on the putz. The kids gave me a portable stereo/radio for Mother’s Day…two weeks later it also went on the fritz. J had this fabulous radio that was all pink and sorts and I have always coveted that baby…so what did I do? I bought one! . WOO -HOO!!!!
Lastly, if you are looking for a quick but fun read…Pick up America the Beautiful by Moon Unit Zappa ( yes, daughter of Frank!) It is SO funny and laugh out loud good.
