One Thousand Gifts

One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp is my new nighttime reading. Her eloquence and heart wrenching writing are amazing, and I am only on chapter 3. Here is the quote I have been wrestling on for a week.

“How do we fully live so we are fully ready to die?”

Am I crazy?

Okay, you don’t need to respond because I already know that I am the crazy one of the family – my brothers remind me of that.

But here is my plan. Next spring I am going to spray paint slots on the garage floor and every child will have to “park” his/her bike. If they can’t put it where it belongs then they can’t have a bike. I feel like our garage is always a disaster , partly because we have no system in place and expectations have gone to the wind.

Here is a picture of a semi cleaned garage.

Microwave question

Now I am curious how many of you cleaned your microwave after my last post?

I know you can use lemon juice instead of vinegar but the frugal side of me opts for the vinegar.
