So here's the thing...I like blogs. I like reading them, I mostly like writing them...except for when I don't. The thing is, sometimes I just get bored with my own thoughts. Does that ever happen to anyone else? I mean I just get sick of what I have to say. Also, I think there are times in my life when I just feel like spending more time doing things and less time talking about things. I am all kinds of crazy--I know this. So anyway, here are some pictures of some things I have been doing. I went on a pretty long trip house-boating with my family. This is what I have to say about it:
Ryan and his friend JackieBobby, Ryan , Darren, and Mandy
Ethan and Ryan
Mandy got a coldI got a sunburn despite the religious application of SPF 50
Booby's self portrait breakfast
Unhygienically preparing dinner/nipple piercing
Patriotic dessertOn our way home, at a gas station in Weed, CA.
I am sorry to say, the stereotypes about where I am from are true...people there think this sort of thing is funny. So did Ethan.
then there was this guy...who actually does look like several people I went to high school with. I have to admit there was a time I considered dread-locks as a hairstyle choice...but that is a story for another post. One of the highlights of my trip...seeing my long lost friend Traci, baby Emma and husband Mark. You really couldn't ask to know nicer people! Sorry for keeping you up so late;)
I had to post this because this photo pretty much sums up my mom. The night before flying back she asked if I wanted her to make me a couch bed. I said yes. She pulled out some leopard print sheets and a sheepskin blanket. Yup that's my mom.
Thanks to all of you who are much less lazy than me and do a much better job of keeping us up to date on your goings on. I really do enjoy reading about it.
I also want to mention my Great Grandma Lila. She is a person worth having something to say about. She just turned 106 . Wow...good jeans. They did a little write up in the newspaper. To see it click here.
ps. Since when do stamps cost 39 cents?
