My daughter knows this is the season for starting seeds.

Using a broken pot and a sharp stick,

Over the years, I've oft referred to myself as an education addict. Nary a semester passes when I don't think of going back to school. Maybe the fact that I still measure my days in semesters at nearly 40 is also a clue that there might be a problem?

When Matt and I first got married, I didn't know how to cook. If it was up to me to make dinner, prep would entail opening a package of some sort and popping the contents in the microwave.
