What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

Okay, let’s dream!  Right now a perfect day would mean sleeping in until 9:00 or 9:30 then having a leisurely breakfast with Gracie and Phoebe.  The temps would top off around 70 degrees, and I’d spend time in the yard with the dogs.  After getting a massage I’d meet a friend for lunch and a pedicure, then I’d toodle around the bookstore for a while.  The kids would magically teleport into my car so I could skip the pickup line and we’d go for frozen yogurt after school.  I’d do some blogging while they finish homework/do their chores/play with friends, and that night we’d enjoy a family dinner that everyone actually eats.  The kids would volunteer for cleanup duty so BrightSide and I could go for a walk, and we’d return to a house where no one was bickering about who’d done the most work.  Ahhh…

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..

Is with family.

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

Leslie.  I had a group of girlfriends that were fun to hang out with, but Leslie was special.  We kept in touch even after I moved.

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Seeing a couple of unexpected acts of kindness between my kids.  Everyone we know tells us what great kids we have, and they are – but they’re typical siblings who get on each other’s nerves, too.  Last week T-man showed genuine compassion for Bear when she was in pain, and he offered to put away her lunch groceries when she forgot.  Bear offered to make waffles for T-man, and she gave him space when he had a friend over.  Seeing them treat each other with kind consideration was inspiring.
