Hello! My blogging lately has been really sporadic. It's summer vacation (and a different custody schedule than the rest of the year). Our wedding is less than a month away. I still don't have a functioning oven or a dishwasher. Just thinking about trying to do One.More.Thing twists my insides into knots.
But I like the routine of blogging. The more I do it, the easier it is. The opposite is also true. So to ease myself back into the groove, here is a little get-to-know-you, adapted from my blogging friend Vicki who is also from Michigan and is an empty-nester. Feel free to add your own facts in the comments.
1. Are you named after someone? My name is Mary Carrie, and I was named after one of Robert Kennedy's daughters.
2. When was the last time you cried? Yesterday (more of a sentimental tearing up)
3. Do you have kiddos? Yes, Griffin (11) and Bela (7) and I would LOVE more once I am remarried. :)
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Yes, definitely!
*5. What book are you reading right now? The Good Spy: the Life and Death of Robert Ames but the library just emailed me that The Goldfinch is in!
6. Do you like your handwriting? Not really
*7. What's your favorite ice cream? Chocolate chip

12. Summer or Winter? Summer
13. Hugs or kisses? Lots of both!
14. Do you have any special talent? I am really good at recognizing voices, which is odd because I am definitely a more visual person. I am also excellent at finding LEGO pieces. ;)
*15. What is one thing you can't live without around the house? I like having a handheld shower head to clean the tub more easily.
