I am kicking off my St. Baldrick’s fundraiser today, and I’m a bit nervous. Why?
I decided I was going to tie the amount I raise to the amount I cut off. Part of me (the competitive part) wants to raise $10,000 and basically get a buzz cut, but most of me is terrified I am going to raise $10,000. (I realize it’s highly unlikely. But I had to set the goal high enough to be a really impressive goal and low enough not to be a jerk about it.)
Anyway, I have until March 28 to raise as much as possible. (My ideal amount is $9,999.)
Thanks for your support!
Look! You can see the floor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s always so nice to have a neat sewing area. I got rid of a trunk that was where my ironing board is now, and I love being able to tuck it in that space.
One of the three carloads of stuff we brought to the thrift store. Getting rid of all this stuff feels SO GOOD!
Back in Natchitoches again. I mean, we were already in Alexandria for the archery tournament, it would just be a waste not to drive an extra hour to spend the night in Natchitoches and visit my high school again. The boys will be spending a week there this summer for camp, so I have two more drives up there this year.
I could not be more proud of Linus. His first archery competition (and the first for his school, and they’ve only been doing archery a couple of months, and not practicing a great deal) and he scored 207 out of a possible 300! Who knew he was a natural at this? Look at that arrow flying through the air! (It landed in blue, which is pretty good, if you ask me.) We have been calling him Katniss.
While the boys watched soccer in our room, Kiki and I watched the finale of Sex Education (highly recommend, but not with kids around) in her room on an iPad while drinking wine out of plastic cups. Cheers!
(We are traveling for an archery tournament for Linus. More on that coming up!)
Kiki made these cookies from a Smitten Kitchen recipe. So delicious and fun!
Look how organized my shelves are! Kiki and I worked hard to get the dining room in order. I really don’t even have before pics of what a mess it was because I avoided taking pictures of this area – it was so cluttered. Now I have all of my Starbucks mugs on display!
Twelve years, two months!
He looks happy here, but rest assured he is most definitely not. We were at the vet. Time for shots! Poor buddy.
Went to visit Granny and Grandpa (George’s parents) on Sunday. The boys have officially passed up Granny in height!
[Sorry for all the posts today – gotta get caught up for the monthly pic!]
This is the third picture in a row of Miles and Linus. Guess who doesn’t like being in pictures? (Well, ok, none of them, really.) Right now, it’s always (American) football in the backyard.
Friday night, relaxing in the glow of the MacBook.
