Today I Indulged my Addiction.

It all started with a trip to Costco. There I purchased my favorite toy, the labelmaker. Now at an almost daily frequency I get the urge to label stuff--lots of stuff.

First I started in my closet.

Moved to my desk.

And then I tackled my most satisfying labelfest yet, the file cabinet.

When the kids start school each fall, almost every folder, file tab, book, etc. is affixed with a label. I am addicted.

Boy Caught on Film in his Natural State

Last winter I didn't get the notice for John and Emily's school picture day. No problem. We have plenty of pictures. However, I did receive a disturbing piece of evidence of how my son looks at school. Please check out the pose options I received on the picture order form.

John likes to leave in the morning with his hood up and jacket zipped up to disguise the fact that he doesn't like to take the time to comb his hair or put on clothes that even moderately go together.

The one saving grace of the awful picture--it wasn't the one to go in the yearbook!

Oh boy, there are 2 to choose from!
