We started compiling our summer list last week. This year we're making it a family thing. I'll post it down the side of the blog. I'm going to take a bunch of pictures and digiscrap them so they can be compiled into a Summer Book as a gift for family members. I'll put the pictures up on my Scrapblog...
Yep. Not too much going on here really. We played an extreme amount of Rockband on the weekend. I'm becoming less shy with my singing.

Right now I'm having a really hard time with my back - moreso my right hip. I think it's a lot to do with not sleeping on an actual bed. It puts a lot of pressure on my hips when I roll over because we're sleeping on the normally super-duper comfy cordaroy. It looks like we might need to by a bed sometime in the near future. It's also good to know that memory foam is evil and gives no proper support to my back. We'll stay clear of that in our mattress purchase.
Nothing much is new since my last post. I'm feeling a lot better. I'm practically as fit as a fiddle. I got to talk to Beki today and see the twins on the webcam for the first time properly. It was really nice. I got to entertain Cameron with my nifty webcam accessories too which was pretty funny. He wants Stuart and me to visit him tomorrow :( I miss the wee man.
Today I got up at 5.30am. That's when this house seems to be awake. We sleep in the room right next to the garage door and alarm so we hear all the activations and warnings of the alarm system and the door opening and closing, loud and clear - hence why I want to live in a normal 2 storey house with bedrooms all together...

Here we have a marvelous collection of goodies.
1 notebook and pen.
1 Color Code by Taylor Hartmand, PhD. (I'm white, with equal blue/yellow.)
An assortment of lip balms - 1 fruit, 1 mint and 1 nut
2 Chanel no. 5 hand lotions
2 hair bobbles
4 fortune cookie fortunes
1 MP3 player
1 set of speakers
1 bottle of anti-acids AKA after dinner mints
1 actual after dinner mint
1 crappy digital camera
1 set of batteries
1 box of Stay Awake pills (from roadtrip)
1 bottle of tylenol (for "back attacks")
1 sheet of stamps
1 safety pin
1 money purse
I usually carry another little clutch type purse in my big bag with 'girly things' in it.
So there you have it. That's what I lug about when I'm out and about. Just call me Mary Poppins.
I tag Megan, Emma, Jessica, Rachel, Sally, Rachel F., Kassi, Siobhan, Aileen, and every other female I know...
Take a picture of your bag and a picture of the contents...

Stuart starts work on Tuesday so I have to be better tomorrow so I can spend a day with him. I think I'll be in a routine soon so I'll be back to my usual picture taking, blogging self. Until then, I'm working on it ;)

It always amazes me how exciting it is to see lakes of water that aren't frozen but after so many months of frozen wasteland it never fails to excite me. The trip from Idaho to Washington is like going from one planet to another. I think Idaho would be Mars and Washington would be... Uranus because it's green. It's funny looking at the pictures from along the way. I've missed trees.

1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1-2 cups chocolate chips
Mix Peanut butter, brown sugar, baking soda and egg.
Add chocolate chips and mix well.
Drop onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350’ for 9 minutes.
Be sure to cool for 5 minutes before moving to cooling rack - they're crumbly soft.
