About Me

My photo
I'm a Great Northwesterner that is now loving life in the Midwest. I am a world class napper. I'm very bossy. I clearly love a good glass of Scotch. I wear aprons every chance I get.

May I recommend...?

So I got my new flipflops for the summer - and I love them. Do get yourself a pair of Croc Athens shoes. The memory foam is so comfy - and there are no pressure points to cause blisters. Get some...get some now.

Sunny morning!

I am sure enjoying the morning. So sunny and bright. It's quite a busy week coming up with dinners with friends and school and work and laundry and cleaning and...blah...it means I'll be busy and getting things done. Spring might be here for reals.

Little Peter Cottontail, Coming down the bunny trail...

Today was Easter Sunday. So nice to have a day where the only thing to do is go to church. I have missed just being at home and puttering. Grandma needed a simple weekend - and she got it.

The Tax Man Cometh...

So - I've had "Do Taxes" on my perpetual "To-Do List" for three months now...but I only got around to doing them this morning. Thank heaven for online filing - and having ZERO income outside of my special little part time job with CampFire. Oh...butcept that I had to stick to my Grandma roots and print the forms and mail them in. I'm not sure why I did that, but at least H&R Block did all the really hard work and all I had to do was print. And sign. And put a stamp on an envelope. I'm EXHAUSTED!

Such a dense time!

I'm amazed that it's only been 10 days since being sick and driving home from the Mountain West. Our family has moved and we're still getting settled in. It may still be a few days before it really feels like we live there.

But my new favorite thing is my rounded shower curtain rod. I love it. It's so great. If you have the means (and the need) I highly reccomend picking one up.

I killed you ten minutes ago...

So I'm home again and for the first time in over 48 hours I'm not feeling nauseous. A sad ending to a very great trip to visit the Malley's with Seth, Reyna, and I getting food poisoning. We're blaming the srimps. So sad. But quite frankly, I have a new found respect for the Malleys as they still hosted a delightful birthday party for their son, Bennett - even after barfing all morning. I am still impressed.

Our bodies sure are amazing...if something isn't supposed to be in it...it sure makes sure that the toxin is removed by any means or hatch it has.

But it was a great time other than that...and my aunt and uncle let me stay at their house while they were away. It was so nice to be able to rest in a quiet bed and sip Sprite. I drove home today from Boise without stopping once. I'm not sure if I'm proud of that or worried. Jury is still out.
