Even though it seems like I have been blogging forever, I'm not exactly cutting-edge when it comes to some blogging-related events. However, after weeks of hemming and hawing, I've decided to commit to participating in the A to Z Challenge .
My oldest daughter's birthday was last week. She and I have run 10Ks together, and I knew that she wanted some way to display her bibs and finisher medals. I wanted to give her a display board as a present. I wasn't thrilled with the ones I found, so I decided to make one.
Dorothy, I'm not in Kansas anymore. Or rather, I'm not in California. I've come up to Oregon for a while to participate in a strange game of Musical Caregivers. Sort of. I think I'm really just comic relief. My mom and I are about to eat ice cream and watch Austenland, a total chick flick. It's been easy to come up with 10 Things of Thankful this week.
That title hints at sorrow or pain, but I really haven't had anything horrible happen this week. I've just been thinking about beliefs I hold which help me see the bright side of life.
