Something I should know by now:

When your kid has a runny nose, don't wear black.

Unless you like the look of snail-like slime trails decorating your shoulders.

Confession of a Greedy Cheap Skate

Last night Jason and I were looking at brochure for an organization that supports a cause that we both really care about and are thinking of donating to. We were filling it out and got to the section where you check the box of which amount you are going to give and Jason asked, "What do you think?"

Pause. I wanted to say the minimum, $25 but I thought, hmmm, we could probably give a little more, I did save some money the other day on blah blah blah..."Fifty," I blurted out feeling rather magnanimous.

Another pause. "That's IT? I was thinking $250!"



I hold on to my money too tightly. Lord have mercy

Last week was a lot like spaghetti - all noodly, messy and fun with out of town guests, swim lessons, ice skating....the list goes on. But looks like this week will be even more crazy. It's nice to spend time with Jason's relatives from Arkansas. James especially enjoyed Saturday night's dinner. I'll be back next week to update more regularly, I promise!
