You wish you looked this good in a cowboy hat!

I got my new cowboy hat at the hardware store. 8.99$ it is a good one, we fight over it. I chase Tarn around the yard with it. Sometimes I pretend like we are in a rodeo and Tarn is the bull. Then he realized it wasn't that scary and he wanted to wear it. So we had a photo shoot. I admitted to Damon that I really don't like movies. I was trying to think of all of the movies I have ever liked. Here is the list: Juno, Mystic River, Into the Wild, Sex in the City, and Sweet home Alabama, oh and all documentaries but I can't think of the names. Recently it was something pied piper about a gypsy singer who went on a road trip. Gypsy and road trip - two of my top 100 favorite things.

I hate computers

This is a plant, maybe a cactus outside Death Valley. It was taken at Devil's hole. We went looking for this "devil" hole in the desert. It turned out to be a cave with a cage over it. It really wasn't that cool, but the cactus was. I found the picture on my old computer - dragged out of the garage because hours after I wrote the last post the laptop just died. Dead, no lights, no nothing, and again nothing backed up. I keep threatening to throw it on the ground and smash it. Stupid computer. Stupid Walmart where I bought it. It was an impulse purchase anyway I should have done my research. My parents were here this week putting in French doors - actually a big dog door. Thanks Mom and Dad. Happy Father's day DAD! Go here to see construction.

Here are funny pictures that I found on my old computer. Notice Kitty and Tarn's matching outfits.

In class

I am sitting in class. Again. OHHHHH what am I doing? We seem to take a lot of breaks. It is all over video telecomference. And I have the most sinful thing - wireless. Which actually just lets me do the things that I would do at home during breaks. Since I am all alone here - I have no one to talk to. That is good - no one to get me in trouble. I think I just heard the quote "lets start so I can let you go". I guess that is good. Oprah here I come.

The Secret

For some reason Oprah is on at 7pm. It is a rerun and I have actually seen it before. It is about the secret and laws of attraction. It sounds kind of like BS but I do believe in attracting good energy by putting it out in the world. So they said put what you want on a post it and really think about it and see what happens. So I thought really hard - and this is what I came up with. It is preliminary because I am brain dead. I'll try again maybe tomorrow.

Happy Birthday MOM!

Two days late and 58! My mom if you don't know her, looks like she is maybe 40. Thanks for the good genes Mom!

This how the blog started

"Vacation always gives perspective. The perspective usually adds to already busy days of the future. I must exercise daily, stop eating out, learn spanish, clean more, save more money, get organized, be a better employee, stay in better touch with friends and family, meet more people, and somehow learn to love Yakima. It all seems so easy - all those things you are going to do after the vacation - while you are downing your second cup of coffee watching the stray dogs circle the block for the third time." I need to focus on something that I can do everyday - so it looks like exercise and eating healthy.
I am trying to reorient back to this perspective without a vacation in sight. Part of this is self imposed and part is because Damon can't take vacation in summer. Then we don't know where we want to go, how long is the flight, should we spend the money this year. Responsibility sucks. Some places in the running are Guatamala, Mexico, a winter ski vacation.
Today I will try and pretend like I am on vacation.

I just watched Kitty clean Tarns ears. That was nice of him. If I was Kitty there is no way I would put my tongue in Tarn's nasty ears. But that is why Kitty is a cat and he gets to sleep all day.
