My latest post, "The United States of Mom" on Chicago Moms Blog talks about the split personalities motherhood makes you take on.
Oh, and windows update! The new ones are pretty as can be and so energy efficient, we no longer feel cold ghostly drafts when we look out at the snow. We saved all the old ones and when I put up a notice on Craigslist, I couldn't believe the response. Tons of people wanted them and I made a few happy, including a sweet couple from Michigan, Chad Proctor and Danika Murray. Chad and Danika run an organic fruit and vegetable farm called Lake Breeze Organics near Benton Harbor. They're planning to use the windows for the new barn they're building and even took the storms for cold frames.
Chad and Danika offer a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) out of Evanston. During the summer and into the fall they offer over 40 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, fruit Purple Passion asparagus, herbs and a huge variety of other vegetables.
Last year, for instance, their box the first week of October included Golden Delicious apples, baby bell peppers, purple serano peppers, a mix of cherry tomatoes, basil, edamame and Swiss Chard.
