Throwback Thursday, bravery edition.
Reason #1: I allowed the picture to be taken though there was not a speck of makeup on my 17-year-old face. 
Reason #2: That there is a South African roasted grub about to go into my mouth. 
(Commence retrospective full body shudders.)

When a) you procrastinate from writing by sorting receipts because things with words no longer compute, b) you wish the kids would have to come home early from school so you could stop feeling guilty about squandering your lovely quiet morning, and c) your husband compliments you and all you can hear is the grating of barbed wire against a rusted tin roof, then maybe you should stop protesting and just take the blasted nap.

First day off school = breakfast at the bar in the Bassett household. (And after 7 years here, I’m finally no longer giggling or stuttering disclaimers in triplicate after the words “breakfast at the bar.”) Second and fourth grade FTW! #lifeinitaly
