Last weekend was Mother’s day weekend. Things around here were busy as usual. Saturday morning I was rushing out the door to roller derby practice and noticed a box had been left behind the bush near my doorstep.
I threw it in the house and all but forgot about
it. Still I had a pretty good idea what it was.
I had not ordered a recent Miche (purses and bags) shipment to augment my collection of stash of cash and carry.
recent Melalueca order had come in previous days. Vista print materials came
No, this box was something very special
and all for me as a mom. A rare treat especially because it was FREE.
A while before, I had
gotten the now rather familiar notice in my inbox, saying I was eligible for a

upon walking into the kitchen had been that I wanted to run across the street to the doughnut
shop for a mocha.
I was lumping around feeling sorry for myself because I could not afford that, when I
remembered, the box!
I opened it and dived right in. I tried both
chocolate bars and made myself a mug of hot tea.
It was later that I cleaned the water

When I posted that I was hosting a Miche event the other day and inviting my friends and contact to participate
one of the first questions was about issues concerning environmental
