|Oh, the things Jack does for me and my horses. Mind you though, I was dragging posts too.|

|My mother insisted on washing the windows in our great room.|
...we repaired the dishwasher so we no longer have to wash dishes by hand...
...we started ripping down the wallpaper, one piece at a time...
...and cleaned and started demolishing the master bathroom in preparation for its renovation.
It's the kind of spring "break" we all enjoy.
Thanks for the help everyone!

One of my goals for this year was to donate milk. I have always thought that human milk is the most beneficial form of nutrition for babies so I decided to see what I could do for infants whose mothers are unable to nurse for a variety of reasons. Through the Indiana Mother's Milk Bank, I was screened, accepted as a donor and the milk I sent in will be pasteurized and sent to infants who most need it.
One more goal off the list!
