As you might imagine, this little game keeps us — well, one of us — entertained for hours on end. Jackson likes it too.
Happy March, everyone! Whew, February is the shortest month, but it always dragggggs on, doesn’t it? But we’ve made it through the other side and now it’s March and in a few weeks it will be spring, oh happy, happy spring! I am looking forward to wearing skirts with no tights, shoes with no socks, and taking Jackson outside without fighting him for twenty minutes to get his coat and hat and mittens on first (by the way, another woman made a comment this morning at the playground about Jackson not wearing mittens. Never mind that her child was literally the only kid in the whole playground wearing mittens today, she still had to make a point of telling me I should be covering up my child’s hands. Um, thanks?
Anyway, onto help that is actually quite helpful — thank you for your generous donations! Thank you, thank you, thank you. As I write this, several dozen of you have already contributed to the DW donation drive and I’ve collected enough money to pay for several months of hosting fees so far. That will make such a difference. Knowing there’s money in the pot for the next bill or the next time I have to hire someone to help with tech issues frees up some mental space and will allow me to redirect that energy toward creating quality content and enhancing the overall experience here. So, thank you. Your support obviously means a lot in a financial sense, but more than that, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy knowing so many of you value this community enough to invest in it (and invest in me). It really does.
Ok, before I get too mushy, let’s switch topics. Let’s talk about… I dunno. Oh! How could I forget! I wanted to cordially invite all of you to the first annual DW Community Picnic to be held three months from today, June 1st, in Central Park. More details here. I figure three months is enough time for everyone to plan accordingly. Secure your vacation time, get your plane tickets or train tickets or ride from wherever, and come meet us in the park for Mimosas and such. I’m bringing my hula hoop.
