Everyone's Saying Thank You

Juggling Frogs has put out an an open invite for us to say a monthly thank you to whoever's on our list! Her reasoning (not that she needs one):

My to-do list is littered with unrealized good intentions. It's less an agenda than a menu. Each morning, I try to choose well from the Activity Buffet. But, inevitably, there's stuff left on my plate at the end of the day. I pack up the leftovers with care, dutifully copying them to tomorrow's list....

If I accomplished one tenth of what I list, I'd be a much better person. I owe a wedding gift to a couple who have had their second child. There is the family that moved here three years ago, whom I keep meaning to invite to welcome to the neighborhood. I have a pile of e-mails and blog comments to answer. 

And then there are the thank-you-notes...

(And while we're on the subject, make sure to catch her previous post on the subject, with some excellent guidelines for how to nudge our children -- and ourselves -- one step further into menchhood).  

So let's join her, folks... 

Keep the balance,

ALN
