Skiied down a glacier. Did the Heimlich maneuver. Saved a baby's life. (long story,) Been arrested during a protest. Debated a US Senator. Have had every thing I've ever written and submitted published. (generally letters to the editor.) Actually eluded the police in a car chase :
What I have A wonderful family The opportunity to go to school The ability to express my thoughts in words My health And an awesome jet boat What I should dump About 20 pounds Books (seriously) Doubts in myself Any preconceived notions of what my children should be.

I'm new to this thread but my 8yo wants to celebrate summer solstace. I'm thinking about salmon on the grill with grilled colorful veggies. Someone said bread, like a really good multi grain bread. I was thinking about berrying with her that day and making strawberry pie (very naughty, I'll share the recipe if anyone wants it.) and stay up (and out,) 'till dark and light some candles into the evening. How about music recommendations?

Because of many of these mentioned issues I have found myself buying groceries nearly every day. If my kids like it, it gets eaten quickly and I do try to only have good stuff in the house it gets expensive or one child pigs out. I don't know how people shop once/week, I can't go more than every other day. I am too easygoing to crack down on them especially over food issues because I have deep rooted from my childhood food issues.
I think it will be good to get a serious discussion started. In my world, no one deserves a seven figure salary.
