What I'll be doing for my birthday on Saturday

I very well understand that this makes me look like I'm turning 74, not 24 but antique stores are my favorite places to shop ever. The fact that there is a street fair on my actual birthday is the best birthday present Pomona could ever give me.


Thank you mwY...

One of my favorite all time quotes from mewithoutYou that I can not get out of my head this past week:

"From my left eye flow tears of joy, of sorrow from my right. You might be too strong to surrender, but you're far to frail to fight..."


I am my mother's child...

Remember when you were a kid and your parent's parents or family were coming into town and your mom insisted on cleaning obsessively? I HATED that. I never understood, and I definitely did not enjoy being forced to help clean every nook and cranny of the house.

Well, as much as I hate to admit it, I found myself madly cleaning my already clean apartment in anticipation of my family coming over for lunch tomorrow. Will they really look inside my shower to see if it has been scrubbed recently? Will they notice that I rinsed out the trash can or that I dusted off every owl in my entertainment center, steam cleaned my carpet and washed my duvet cover? Probably not. It's semi-scary when you realize you are becoming your parents...
