You guys are fans of the show Modern Family, right? (If not, please start watching it! You won’t regret it!) Well, a couple of weeks ago, a neighbor’s home burns down, so the whole (modern) family rallies and organizes a community drive to help out. Naturally, a bunch of hilarious antics transpire during the episode, but it got me thinking about what I would save from a fire if my own house burned down.
Obviously, the first thing I’d save is this guy:
If had Murphy (and Mal, of course, but I assume he’d get out alright on his own), life would be okay. Mal + Murphy = happy life.
The next thing I’d save (if I could physically carry it) is the trunk in our living room.
It’s full of photo albums and memories from high school and college (aka before digital cameras). I’d be so sad if they got destroyed.
Other than Murphy and my photo albums, there’s not much else I’d want to save. I wear my engagement and wedding rings 24/7, so they would already be with me. Everything else is just stuff to me.
Mal was on dinner duty last night. He cooked some burgers on the grill and then added leftover Thanksgiving mashed potatoes and salad to the meal. I drizzled buffalo sauce on my burger and mashed potatoes and balsamic vinegar on my salad. Delish.
After dinner, I ate a couple of Christmas sugar cookies. Obviously.
In the mix: oats, banana, almond milk, ground flaxseed meal, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, mushroom powder, and an extra scoop of peanut butter.
Do the KIND Thing
I’ve always believed that one act of kindness can go a long way and really make a difference, so when the folks at KIND bars contacted me about their Do the KIND Thing movement, I knew I wanted to tell you guys about it. By getting involved with Do the KIND Thing, you will have the opportunity to help homeless children”” and all it takes is one act of kindness.
Here’s how it works: Every month, Do the KIND Thing challenges its community to do one act of kindness for someone else. If enough people sign up and do it, KIND gives back in BIG ways to people who really need it.
Starting today, Do the KIND Thing is challenging people to do the following act of kindness: Donate one or more items to a local food bank or shelter of your choice by Tuesday, December 6th. If enough people pledge to carry out this act, KIND will partner with Publix and the Chapman Partnership to deliver holiday gifts to hundreds of homeless children who otherwise may not open a single gift this holiday season.
Now, get out there and donate some items! I already have a few non-perishable items ready to donate to my local food pantry.
