two good things

Two good things are that it is raining which might cancel soccer practice, and that I actually have gifts for the birthday parties we will be attending this weekend. Granted I will still probably be wrapping them on the drive, but this is a step toward the organized person I am trying to become. However I did feel annoyed at myself when I walked up to the counter of the book store to fetch my nephew's special order of Traction Man, several days ahead of time. Just who do I think I am, having it all together, and stuff.  So today, in response, I had to go and chop off all my hair. I needed to say to that accusing voice inside my head, "You haven't got me yet! I could pack us all up and move to Oregon. If I really wanted to." Anyways, its on my list to see the Beverly Cleary sculpture garden.

This is awesome. Traction man, no regrets. That, and the hair cut! Watch out I'm about to copy you.

As a fellow chopper-offer-of-hair and lover of Traction man and type-a wannabe, I would like to give a thumbs up to all of this. You would be most welcome in Oregon. The little and I would happily meet you at the sculpture garden. Which is best for splashing in summer, but still heart-warming year round.
