My biggest problem in the whole world right now is the county (and soon-to-be state) -wide ban on “single use” bags in stores.
Which maybe says more about how soft my life is than about how terrible it is to have to remember to bring my own bags every time I go shopping.
As I sit here trying to type this up, I realize that it’s completely counter to how I usually roll for this to be so disruptive for me. I’m all about reusing things and minimizing waste. But don’t they have anything better to do and this is totally driving me nuts.
I do the majority of my grocery shopping at Costco and Trader Joe’s, and neither of those stores offer plastic bags anyway. But I also shop at Target and Party City and shoe stores and whatnot and it didn’t used to be AGAINST THE LAW for them to give me a bag.

The little girl from this 1981 Lego ad is now a doctor, practicing medicine in Seattle.

I was so excited to follow Noelle Pikus Pace’s Olympic story, and see the way she balances her family life with her personal goals.
Her races were one of the highlights of our family Olympics-watching so far.
- It’s my favorite thing in here.
- Wow, I really have a lot of these.
- I’ve been looking for those.
- Huh. THAT shouldn’t be in there.
The fine print (which I’m keeping big so you can read it): NO CHEATING. No early tidying. No funny planted stuff. God is watching you.
Hope to see you there. happy weekend everyone!
