can't confirm this, but john and cheri on klove (christian radio) said that krispy kreme was giving away a donut of your choice today in honor of the inauguration. if it's true, God bless america! if not, maybe you'll just have to buy one anyway:)

“Stalin once famously said, ‘One death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.’ Well, then the statistics are staggering: Some historians believe that between the murder, the state sanctioned famine, and the concentration camps, Stalin was responsible for 40 million deaths.”
she celebrates life by crocheting baby booties. booties that she gives to parents when they first find out they are going to have a baby. she says nothing else they have tried makes the reality of a new life quite so clearly as a pair of baby booties. mothers and fathers may not see or feel their child, but looking at those booties they can imagine that life. not a statistic or a mass, but a life. i am so proud of what tamara does. she doesn't just say she's against abortion. in fact, i don't think she ever says that. she says she loves people and wants to help young women and men in crisis situations and be there for them with whatever it takes to get them through. she doesn't just fight for life. she gives her life. she pours it out for others proving to them that they are not just a statistic, but a significant, valuable, creation.

we drove into our driveway last night after a 14 hour drive from michigan. there was 9 newspapers strewn about our lawn, a mailbox overflowing with christmas greetings and junk mail, and a large package on our stoop. neither of us were expecting one and as we got closer we saw it was from the company sonny had ordered my cricut from. a few of the accessories he ordered were on backorder (because of their big sale) and i was expecting them, but this box was BIG. we got it inside and i sliced open the box. inside was my cartridge, blade replacements, and cutting mats. these weigh about 8 oz. altogether. this puppy was HEAVY. under my accessories was none other than.....ANOTHER CRICUT! not the little one. not the medium one. THE BIG, DELUXE, AMAZING one!!! they sent me the entire order and forgot to omit the machine they'd already sent.
i am writing this partly to share my life and partly to hold myself accountable. customcrops is closed until monday for the holidays and i know i need to call them. i don't want to call them. i want to keep the cricut. i want to sell the cricut and buy more cricut toys. i want to give the cricut to a deserving woman. i want to do basically ANYTHING but return it to its rightful owner.
but....i will. i will call. i will do the right thing. please don't think me noble. i REALLY don't want to.
