This has been my first week (give or take a week or so). During this week, I have come to appreciate what a kind and welcoming group I've fallen into. Thank you so much for the many words of welcome. And, this week I found in my mailbox no fewer than THREE pieces of mail art. I haven't posted the pieces, but those who sent them should be receiving something back from me soon.

I make lists. They make me feel like I'm getting something done. So here's my list about this week:

1. I need intervention.

2. My trash and recycling bins are half as full as usual, but my art corner is stuffed with material for later use. Also, my kids have started just handing me their trash, rather than throwing it away. Oh wait. They've always done that.

3. I contemplate ways to mail everything around me--appliances, clothing, food, small children...

4. The woman at the counter already sighs and gives me odd looks when she sees me coming into the post office.

5. Getting the mail is fun again.

Thanks to everyone for making this such an enjoyable experience. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.

I'd call that sound advice.  Hi, MomKat.

Bills, which I mostly ignore.
