Before and After

"Max, can you hook up the scanner to my laptop?"
"I'll scan a picture for you," he replies.
"I'm going to do quite a few. If you just plug it into my laptop, I'll do it myself."
"No, really it's OK. I don't mind."
So I handed him a dozen old photographs.
"Oh, are you going to do a series of before and after pictures on your blog, mom?

I love that he assumed that.
I love that he and his brothers love the old ones.
I love that we all have so many memories wrapped up in that place on 96th Ave.

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Impromptu Chinese Food Potluck dinner tonight with 2 other families to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Yum.
2. How many days without a chocolate bar? 50? FIFTY? I'm half way there.
3. Memories.
