The youngest's grocery lists are very specific

Note the inclusion of illustrations in case I become bewildered or confused by the luminosity of the grocery's bright lights and forget how to read.

Step on me

The youngest and I started making stepping stones for my husband's birthday, and now I can't stop. I'm using the seashell pieces and pebbles I've brought home from the Topsail trips and the church youth group trip.

I've decided this season's theme is "2012: Summer of House", wherein I do all the little -- and big -- projects I've been meaning to get to all year. (Or die trying.)

It was Mother's Day until noon. Now it's my husband's birthday. We're sharing.

Four year old me is on the right. I'm in my beloved cove in Maine. "Childhood summers in Maine" is absolutely in my top ten favorite life experiences. "Disney with my own family" would definitely be in there, too. But it surprises a lot of people to learn that "volunteering in the middle school" is something I find incredibly enjoyable as well. And so I felt a little -- make that a LOT -- like I was double-dipping to win this, because it maybe should have gone to someone who needed some motivation, someone who sacrificed. But now you can understand the sporadic (at best) posting. I hope you haven't been worried, because I'm good. No. I'm great.
