After we got home I started thinking about how the short person needs a leotard and tutu though. Like, the other girls had one. So, what did I do? I went on Ebay and looked around. Yeah, I'm watching like a bajillion tutus and leotards and slippers. We'll see. It's fun to see the short person excited about this.
I tried (and so did Mr. Tall Man) to get a video clip of her up....to no avail.

I'm quite literally so overwhelmed just thinking about everything I have to do I am paralyzed. I think I have ADD and just need some good medication to deal with this state. I'll have to talk it over with my counselor tomorrow. I'm sure she'll have some good advice or will at least make me think about why I'm feeling this way. Then I'll say, I'm paying YOU to think...no, I won't say that but will wish I could.
Enough complaining. I should be celebrating. I have a date for wine drinking with my good pal Jen. My good pal Jen
Other news....ummm....camping last weekend was wet, but fun. Why no pictures you ask? We took the camera....turned it on to take a picture, took the picture and then the battery promptly DIED. Argh....that seems to happen constantly. You'd think we'd learn. Mr. Tall Man took some pics with his phone and assures me he'll send them to me soon. Then I'll post the best camping treat EVER created....but it shall remain top secret until I have pictures to share with it.
Speaking of eating....that is all I've done lately. I'm so not wanting to even get on the scale tomorrow for our weekly biggest loser weigh in at work. I'm thinking I'll just lie and say the weight I was last week. Seriously, I'm AFRAID to get on the scale....I'm thinking between treats in the lounge today, camping all weekend and the baby shower treats after school I'm up at least 7 pounds. I've gotta get back to the gym.....or at least on my treadmill....

Ok, so having asked you about why you read, I am thinking I should mention why I read. I read as a form of escape. I open the book and am transported to another world. I can meet new people and go new places. I can learn about any topic I want to learn about. I love reading. I just never
Reading for me is also something to talk to people about. It gives me a conversation piece or way into a conversation. When stuck, I can just say, oh...have you read [insert current read]? It's so [insert adjective phrase]. You should read it. You get my drift? I love turning people onto authors I love and having them love them as well. I especially love to talk to my friend Jenny about books we've both read. She's a million times smarter and deeper than me and always gets a ton more out of what we've read. Especially the book The Life of Pi.
Finally, reading is a great way to pass the time while you're waiting. Waiting at a doctor's office, waiting to arrive somewhere via a bus or airplane, or waiting for a boring day to end. It's a fun activity to do in the sun too. I just love reading.
There's my story...why I read. Leave your story in the comments section about why you read and I'll put you in the contest drawing for a [yet to be named] book. (I don't actually think my comments section will hit 25, in fact, I doubt I even have 25 readers.) AND, ONLY ONE COMMENT PER PERSON WILL COUNT! :)
I've been on a hiatus from sharing pictures, but I'm back and here we go!

Health Rider, aka Sexer-Ciser...yeah, I got it off of QVC. I think I used is a few dozen times. Sadly enough I was dumb enough to move it from South Dakota all the way to Seaside, Oregon. Pathetic, I know. Did I use it there, I don't think so.
And that isn't me on the Health Rider, if only I looked half that good.
So I've also had the ever famous thigh master...duh is all I have to say on that one.
I bought a yoga mat, ball, dvd and ball weights thinking I'd do the video...not so much. The yoga mat is now great for kneeling on while weeding flower beds.
I am the current owner of a VERY expensive dust collector...yes, my treadmill. I swear each January that I'll be better about using it...not so much. I even paid to have the extended service warrenty on it for another year...I haven't used it since January. I'm pathetic.
Maybe I'll win the Wii Fit and magically get in shape while having fun. @@ yeah right! I never win anything.
Scrap and stamp in Puyallup
Thursday, May 15, 2008
I'm just so excited to have MY computer back. Yes, she needs her extra ram put in before she's running at lightning speed again, but she's here. I've already read a few of my favorite blogs. Oh how I've missed Bossy and Cookiebitch and Mama Mia and Liane and Pioneer Woman and Redneck Mommy and so many more...I'm only 563 posts behind (and I actually read a few while lil acer was at the doctor's office).
I'm so loving having my lil girl back home. She's back just in time to go to Puyallup with me. I'm headed there for a stamping and scrapbooking show with my friend Liane. I'm going to help her with her booth. It should be fun and all so much better with my lil acer to go on the adventure with me!
Tomorrow is Haiku Friday and I'm already pondering what I'll say. I'm just so excited to be back!!!

You Are Miss Piggy
A total princess and diva, you're totally in charge - even if people don't know it.
You want to be loved, adored, and worshiped. And you won't settle for anything less.
You're going to be a total star, and you won't let any of the "little people" get in your way.
Just remember, piggy, never eat more than you can lift!
I'm sorry this is the sad, sorry ass lame post I have...I know I haven't blogged much lately, but it's due to the fact that my lil acer (new name for my laptop) is still at the doctor's. Fed Ex shipping e-mail says she's en route back to me, but I'm not holding my breath. (at least that is my lame ass excuse for this week)
Anyhow, it's Monday and I'm back to teaching my own class. Today my amazing, wonderful multi-talented student teacher and I tag teamed, but I think I'm pretty much back on my own after today, well, I amend that. She's still finishing up her reading worksample. So...so odd to be back teaching...and so nice too. Not many school days left either...June 12th is the last day!!!
Well, that is all I have...toodles, noodles!

And, Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers who may not have gotten the recognition you so deserve!!!
