I quit running when hay fever kicked in and I was waking up every morning feeling like death (And the thought of going outside and gulping in great lungfulls of pollen-laced air seemed like it might actually kill me.) Now I'm back at it and can report that any and all stamina I had painstakingly built up is now gone. I don't like running. I like doughnuts and beer. And fitting into my pants.

I've been super-busy making ninety-six Market Bags for my fabulous customer in Japan! 96! (I saved you one, it's in the shop.) And they shipped on Monday and then there was a bike race, and a few baseball games, Fin lost a tooth, I cleaned off my desk and Donna Summer died and now I'm back! Here's what I learned:
1. Making 96 of anything is tough. I know what you're thinking and I'm still not going to have them made in China. Thank you for bringing it up again.
2. Using a point system to modify your child's behavior is a little like a being on a diet. It works for a week and then everyone gets bored and eats whatever they want. I don't care what fancy doctor recommended it.
3. Chickens can fly.
Now I'm off to work at a school fundraiser, listening to parents complain about the beautiful event my friend, Anne, spent 100 hours creating to raise money for their child's school. Whatever, haters!
In unrelated news: 19 days to Summer Mom! Actually, those two things might be related.

1. Fin has two stomachs. They can be used for different things, which explains how his "dinner" stomach can be full, while his "milkshake" stomach is not.
2. Cows do not have four stomachs. They have one stomach with four compartments.
3. There are two Sudans.
What I forgot today, I could not tell you. I'm sure it was important.
Beautiful limited-edition gravity-defying print (which I must have) at How Now Brown Cow.
