FRIDAY FAST ONES
And by the way, that goes for all the chefs on Top Chef too. Sloppy, sloppy, grow-up. (I am making that my my personal version of "Get off my lawn.")
*To clarify, I am not talking here about nice fitting, dark demin. I am talking faded, saggy kneed, frayed hem, well worn everyday jeans.
2.) I am going through a bunch of "last times" right now with youngest child finishing high school - like last time I'll be making vats of mac & cheese for the drama kids on rehearsal nights. Wednesday night was their last performance as a group. I had to miss it due to my work schedule, but my faithful delivery of mac & cheese for 4 years got me a "ticket" to the dress rehearsal!
3.) Please read this wonderful essay by Marlo Thomas about bullying. I agree that we all have to start talking about this problem and not stop until all our kids are safe in school and at home.
I also think that we need to take a long look at what we consider entertainment. Those women on the Real Housewives shows? Bullies. Those coaches on Biggest Loser? Bullies. In fact, the behavior most glorified and egged on on most reality shows is bullying behavior. Those shows are full of people shouting, name calling, cursing, fighting and putting each other down. And if we are watching those shows with the kids around...
Is it any wonder they think that is an okay way to behave?
this tub online and my first thought was about keeping it clean. Based on the comments many others had the same thought - they were also worried about how they would look in it if someone were to come into the bathroom while they were in the tub!
5.) How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! ~Maya Angelou
At some time this long weekend, remember those we have lost.
