When is a bin not a bin?

When your toddler starts using the bin to deposit random household items, such as the wooden spoon or our digital camera. Who knows what else she may have deposited undetected…?

The Dundies

Okay – so Cade and I have a few tv shows that we enjoy watching together (Sopranos, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Arrested Development and The Office) but apart from those listed, we have very different tastes in tv/movie watching.

Lake to Lagoon

Update: Placed 14th. A great event. I ran well enough, just under 37mins. I’ll find out my place later in the week, but definitely top-20, out of 1300 or so runners. My cheer squad did a good job of encouraging me towards the end. I still can’t believe it’s a free event. Found myself in […]
