My girls' school has a "pancake breakfast" every December. And the school's head custodian is also a professional Elvis impersonator. So of course he (and Santa) performed at the breakfast.

Another picture of someone taking a picture.

Autumn and Lily make us save these pull tabs to recycle and they accumulate on the kitchen window sill. Since we have so few of them, I thought it was silly - until I went to the kid's church the other day and saw a huge fish tank almost filled with the things.

There was something profound that I was going to say about this, how it related to something on a higher level or larger scale, but I forget what it was.

I should probably clean that window sill some time.

I'm thinking about money this morning. I'm thinking about keeping employees. I'm thinking about paying bonuses and what those should be. And if I can afford it.

And I'm thinking about that bare patch in my backyard where the herb garden used to be and why haven't I called to get topsoil for that since it's been like that for several months now.

Maybe I'll start shooting all my stuff with the iPhone. I kind of like the "fixed focus" idea.

Monday morning. My office is a wreck. Why can't I take a few seconds to shift some things a few inches that are on the floor so I don't have to walk around them? Why don't I spend a couple of minutes to gather all the papers on my desk into one pile so I can move my elbows without knocking something over? Why do I put myself through that? Why do I create that kind if mini-stress in my life?

And why do I pay MONEY for this space and keep it like this? And this photo is just of my desk. You should see what the rest of the suite looks like. Or maybe not.

I bet I'd be more productive if I had an organized space. Or even just a tidy one.

I can't believe how much a different attitude can help to change things.

Say cheese

I like to take pictures of people taking pictures. Somebody analyze that for me please.

I LOVE THIS PHOTO! It was taken accidentally, but it's SO Lily! She's non-stop.

I have two places that I take the girls for lunch on a semi-regular basis, where we have "our table". This is at a Taco Bell. The other place is Skyline (Cincinnati-style) Chili, where Keith, the owner, keeps us entertained while we sit at his counter. Why doesn't Taco Bell have counter seating?

Lily always gets the Burrito Kid's Meal (burrito with cheese and beans ONLY please). I get the Crunch Wrap Supreme. Mmm... I love Crunch Wrap Supremes. Autumn takes half an hour to decide everytime.

This photo says so much about how I've feel I've been treated lately. And I'm not even in it.
