High in the Mountains...

Just wanted to give a little wave as I head off for five glorious days at Girls' Camp.

Catch ya on the flip side!!

I just got a really bad paper cut.  It's, like, all the way down to the bone!!  (That's a bit of an exaggeration).  But it DID make me cry.  Mostly because I was mad, but still, it made me cry. 

And it made me hate, more than I already do, all those stupid credit card companies that send us two or three invitations A DAY (that is not an exaggeration) that I have to shred and shred and shred.  What a colossal waste of paper.  I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever get a credit card from a company that sends me one of those stupid invitations.  It tells me that they don't know how to use their money wisely, and instead spend it on fancy, useless advertising.  I hate those dumb things.  A lot.

So if you're thinking that you want me to get a credit card from you, the last thing you'll want to do is send me a stupid invitation that makes me get a paper cut that's so bad that I have to cry.

Fair warning.

"I Missed Wordless Wednesday!"

So said my Kate this afternoon. 

I know, I know.  I missed it, too!!  I'm missing a lot of things lately.  You know that phrase, "My plate is full?"  Well, my plate is so full that I'm leaving a trail of crumbs that would make Hansel and Gretel proud!!  I'm so tired that I've been a full thirty minutes late to work the past two days because I CANNOT wake up on time in the mornings!  So what do I do?  I sit down at the computer to blog at 10:00 at night.  You can tell I'm a smart one.

So Kate, this one's for you.

And goodnight.

I've Been Everywhere, Man....

Since June 17, I have traveled to:

St. George, Kansas
Manhattan, Kansas
Wamego, Kansas
Enid, Oklahoma
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Norman, Oklahoma
Memphis, Tennessee
Freeport, Florida
DeFuniak Springs, Florida
Grayton Beach, Florida
Chipley, Florida
Cottondale, Florida
West Memphis, Arkansas
Earle, Arkansas
Denver, Colorado

I have seen where my son has been serving his mission (but I did NOT see my son!), I have been on the flight line and in the control tower at Vance Air Force Base, I visited the Oklahoma City Memorial Site (very, VERY special place), and seen the hail damage on my brother-in-law's house.  I stood on the football field in the stadium at Oklahoma University, I got tumbled around in the Gulf of Mexico, made a sand castle that looked like Goblin Valley, slept in the worst motel I have EVER been in, and watched the 4th of July fireworks over Elitch Gardens in Denver.  I have driven over 4,000 miles and played nearly that many games of Solitaire and Words with Friends.  I have driven through Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, and Colorado.

Man, I'm glad to be home!
