Happy VD

Isn't that a nice way to phrase it? Takes on a whole different meaning, doesn't it?
Not much to say but I'll share with you this picture that I took with two of my coworkers last week when we all happened to wear red and black. Don't we look all VDish? (try to ignore the fact that my shirt looks see-through, it was just the light).
Hope y'all have a great Valentine's. Now go and kiss your man right now.

Mean Girls

It's starting with Anna (she's 11, in 5th grade). The games that girls play. The mean ones, where they talk behind each other's backs and make fun of one another. No longer all carefree friends that are too naive and innocent to play these games. I remember this from my school days all too well. I hated it. Apparently, I hate it even more now that it involves my girl. I know she's not 100% innocent in all of it, but I truly believe that she would never be hurtful and deceitful on purpose.

I know there's no avoiding the 'Mean Girls' and I may as well hold my breath and get ready for what lies ahead. And then one more time with Emma. But can't we just skip this stage and go straight to college?

John M. self portrait 2/6/07

Don't you sometimes feel sorry for your laundry room?

I mean, it's a room that doesn't get a lot of love.

Not enough action.

But mine was a happy laundry room last night.

A girl and a boy feeling the warm love of clothes just out the dryer.
