1. "A daughter's a daughter all her life, but a son's a son til he takes a wife." What say you? Elaborate.
I mean, do I think women are more of the glue of a family - usually. Not always - but its that maternal instinct, right? I've seen families fall apart with the matriarch's pass away. Women are glue.
But I dont think a son isnt a son after he is married. I think its all your family dynamics. I know plenty of families where the son's wife is now their daughter - its more to the family - not a loss.
Family dynamics is everything.
2. Something you've seen recently that was 'cuter than a June bug'?
I mean, I live with 4 dogs... everything they do is cute. Well, MOST things they do is cute. I have a picture of Ozzie falling asleep with his head on Hubby's shoulder - who was sitting on the floor - & who also was asleep. Hubby would most definitely kill me if I posted a picture of him sleeping - but its precious.
I'll just post this latest pic of our old aussie for now as a verified pic that cuteness rules my world.

3. 'You can't buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream and that's pretty much the same thing.' Agree or disagree? Last time you had a serving of
happiness ice cream? Dish-cone-milkshake-sundae...which one do you choose?
....meeehhhh... ice cream doesnt really do it for me. I'll MAYBE do a soft serve, but I still want it covered in some sort of syrup. It usually upsets my stomach... & it kills my uber-sensitive teeth.
Now, yarn or planners/stickers as happiness... let's talk about THAT!
4. What is one way/area in which you're currently 'swimming against the tide'?
WhoooOOOooOOO Girl - want to sit down for a few hours & have this conversation? Being a Christian & having most of my friends have Christian views - the past few years, I feel like I have swam against the tide big time. More like swimming against the Monsoon!
You do realize, you can love God & believe in Jesus & STILL feel like guns need stronger regulations (what 18 year old NEEDS an automatic weapon???) - believe in science, & believe choice is a necessity for anyone, especially woman - & even more, NOT be a Republican. When did a political stance represent your Christian beliefs? ... I dont get it. I always like to remind people, Billy Graham was a Democrat.
5. Three things you're looking forward to this summer?
1. Reading outside
2. All the light evenings (though the time starts going backwards in 2 weeks - WAAAHHHH!!!!)
3. Less traffic with school being out.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm gonna need people to go to more of these little libraries that are around town/in neighborhoods. I have been dropping some of my books into them & they are always so full. I dont know if people know to take advantage of these.
& if you have a young child or grandchild - I mean, ALL THE BOOKS!!!! All the ones I've been to - they are crammed full of kids books. Take advantage!
Sincerely, your friendly PSA of the day

Look at how crammed that thing is!
