Dear Kid,

A bend in the road is not the end of the road--unless you fail to make the turn. DearKidLoveMom.comI know it’s close to the end of the day and I am dangerously close to not having a post today. But fear not, Oh Child of Mine, I am getting this on the web before today becomes tomorrow, so all is right with the world.

Word of Warning: I’m tired, so I don’t promise coherence.

Today has been a crazy busy day. I had to apologize to the puppy (twice) for accidentally getting flour on his fur (he looked like he’d encountered about 6 large, un-melting snowflakes—but he didn’t seem a bit concerned about his decorations). And I did a bunch of stuff that would sound really boring in print, so I won’t bother you with the details. You’re welcome.

Important: November 15 is National Recycle Day. It is also Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. I like to think there’s a connection, but the idea of recycling some of the things (and by “things” I mean science experiments) that sometimes end up in our frig is a little scary.

In honor of Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day, I took some things out the frig and then put them back. No germs were harmed in the process.

LIFE is a whim of several billion cells to be you for a while. DearKidLoveMom.comIt’s also Clevelanders Are Visiting Day. We’ve had a lovely time starting to catch up. It’s been a looong time and I am thrilled they are here. More about that tomorrow.

In other news, it’s cold. Not just chilly, but C-O-L-D. Also it’s not warm.

I think I need to go to sleep now.

You should probably recycle something.

Love you kiddo,

Love, Mom
