We finally made it to the tulip festival in Mt. Vernon after 20 years of Washington residency.  We had a blast, and so did the kids.  Now if only I can find time to process all the photos...

Sometimes you have a funny conversation with a strange old woman at Value Village about the impracticality of adult sized pantsuits with zippers in the back. Then you find some super nice dishes. Score.

Today we went to the Marchival Carnival at Sam's school.  He had his face painted for the first time (it was an Angry Bird), did better at games than I expected, ate a ridiculous donut covered in sprinkes, and became absolutely covered in glitter from one of his prizes, a sparkly silver glitter bowler hat.  He was very happy.

There is crayon in the dryer.  I know this is not an insurmountable problem, but I kind of want to cry about it.  I see scrubbing and WD-40 and soap and water and possibly Comet and a toothbrush in my future, and I don't like it!

It seems like maybe milk got spilled in the back seat of the car.  It smells like stale farts, and I don't know how to get it out.  Someone suggested vinegar, that seems like it might work.  I hope it does, because it stinks.

Pro choice.

Today I accidentally watched 30 minutes with of a "documentary" that compared being pro choice to being a Nazi. First I felt sick because it talked about the holocaust. Then I felt sick with anger that the comparison was made and someone was using Hitler killing 11 million people to promote their pro life agenda.

This weekend was really not great. In fact, I don't think it deserves the title of weekend at all. TGIM!
