Another week, another wash load of photos:
Day 126: A Sunday
I found this magnet, and I quite enjoyed it, and then I decided I could make it myself, and I haven’t. (Series-of-unfortunate-commas, oh man). I totally regret not buying it on the spot for my new fridge. (I got a big girl job). I keep telling my friends not to be jealous of my big girl job because my mom keeps shouting, “Put on your big girl panties” throughout our house. Plus, she has more fridge magnets than the big fridge in the sky. I’m becoming my mother.
Day 127: A Monday
I decided it would be really cool if I stripped my bed, not for washing, but for staining. When I was a junior in college I painted a giant white tree on the head board. I was (am) really into nature and all that, being barefoot – you know. I didn’t realize stripping your bed is a whole ordeal. However, I did discover that at the bare wood, someone painted a lovely little bouquet. I think my mom haggled our neighbors down to $15 on this vintage find when we got it.
Day 128: A Tuesday
Like President Obama, I’m for marriage equality. A lot of people think that this Amendment 1 was to ban the unions between LGBTQ community members, but all it did was prolong the inevitable. Like Obama has said in the past, we are a nation that is evolving. Here’s how I look at it: you don’t have to vote for Gay Marriage, you have to vote for equality. This Amendment wasn’t asking for the holy rollers to let the LGBTQ community get married in the sanctity of their church, but under the government. This is why we have separation of church and state, people.
Here’s a story:
Yesterday, I stopped at Food Lion on my way home to get Broccoli. One of my teens who I hadn’t seen in a while was the cashier in my line. Of course, I asked him where he’d been.
He said, “I have no reason to come up there anymore.”
“We got a computer at home and everything.”
Now, I’ve had a computer my entire life. I never wanted for technology, or anything really, in my household. I always had easy access to Microsoft Word to type my papers, and google search was available for all the examples I used in those papers. However, to my teen at Food Lion having a computer at home was a remarkable thing. Think about this story next time you imagine everyone as equal. Ask yourself then how you can make this life more equal, more free for others.
Day 129: A Wednesday
This is Jasper on the kitchen island. THIS is Jasper the dictator.
Day 130: A Thursday

Day 131: A Friday
I want to know where you can buy bowling shoes. They looked cute with my summer dress.
I know that score says I’m not winning, but I just got a strike! (Strikes! are in need of exclamation points).
Day 132 : A Saturday
Sometimes, he’s cute, only sometimes though. This blog is a Holy Comma Disaster.
Day 133: A Sunday
On the side of the road a little goose family was munching on the propellers of dandelions. Weird thing is, my mother loves Geese. She giggles over gaggles (had to get it in there). In honor of my mother, and all wonderful mothers like her, Happy Mother’s Day.
