UU Calendar

I was thinking how I need to get a 2014 calendar and about what style I should get.  Usually I get one that supports a non-profit organization.  Which one, which one.... Then it hit me - why isn't there a UU themed calendar?  It could be inclusive to different religious holidays, plus highlight notable times in UU history.  Has this been done before?  Is there one currently out there?  If not, it could be fundraising effort for the UUA.  I am willing to help, but have very little graphic arts experience.  Who's in?!

Family, family everywhere

We just returned from a long road trip involving lots of family.  We spent a beautiful five days in Holland, MI with Husband's parents and sister's family.  From there we headed for a quick visit with my mom and step-dad in Cedar Falls, IA. While there, our car battery died, was replaced and we were back on the road to Sioux Falls, SD.  In Sioux Falls, we were dads, moms, step-moms, sisters, step-brothers, step-sisters, and nineteen little cousins all in one crazy busy house.  We had a great time and came home to St. Louis EXHAUSTED.  I think I will be spending the next week just trying to catch up.  It was what was needed, though.  With such a tough year behind us (and some more sad approaching), we needed to be with each other.  Once again, I am left wishing we lived closer to my family.  I do miss them a lot.
