hey there


  • I spent the last 5 days in a rink. I love watching the girls play but it was sad being inside when the weather outside was so incredible.
  • I made sure to tackle Blackberry Challenge No. 2 in between games on Saturday to make up for being indoors - recap and photos to come.
  • Blackberry Challege No. 1 was a huge success - we ate it for dessert, then breakfast and again for lunch.
  • not sure what's going on with these blackberries of mine. last summer we were away from July 23 to August 1 and my inlaws, who were reaping the rewards, raved about the fabulous crop. it's now August 12 and I've collected a total of 7 handfuls and I don't foresee it being an epic crop in the least.
  • a pint of blackberries is currently selling for $3.99 at my local Roche Brothers so I'm not really complaining
  • I am complaining about heading to the DMV this morning to renew my license.
  • this is the first of many milestones this week including leaving to take Jack back to school on Thursday.
