Home Depot AND Lowes all in the same day. I don’t mind so much if we have to buy pipe insulation. I feel like I’m 7 and I just got handed a balloon. I did not flick people with it. I pointed at things with it like the Madagascar scene where King Julian uses a skeleton hand to talk. I was a good little girl. ~N

A lady at our new church (I didn’t even catch her name) just came up and handed me flowers.  Said every week she picks someone out to give flowers to “just because”.  Isn’t that the sweetest thing? ~M
